I have two babies. The same age....exactly. Twins.
Some days I want to go outside and scream to the heavens and some days I want to spend all day on the floor smushed in between my sillies and play peeka boo with them for hours at a time.
All in all, it's natural. The whole overwhelmed feeling. I'm definitely not the first.
Here lately we've entered a new world of "my" toys. The girls realized that there was another baby about a month ago...and they are now totally amazed by the exact reflection that they see. It's great!
What's not so great is that at 7 months they've already started to snatch toys from each other as if that specific toy is JUST theirs. Awh...what a joy to look forward to. *smirk*
I have found that these are all common questions that one with mulitples hears. People are intrigued by how to take care of 2+ babies at a time. To be honest...I still am. *smile*
If you were to look around our house right now, you probably wouldn't even think we had twins unless you stared directly at the 2 highchairs and the 2 jump-a-rOOs that sit in the living room. Other than that, I don't have 2 of everything. I couldn't imagine how cluttered my house would look if I did. Whoo! I so don't even want to think about it.
In my opinion, you really only need 2 of the essentials, which in our case is the following:
5. boppy pillow
We used to have two of the bumbo chairs. I loved the idea of them and all. But they just didn't work out for us. The girls were never comfortable and their legs got stuck in them.
