When you have two monkey's you have to make some adjustments in moments of desperation. Those moments usually equal to some kind of situation where one or both are crying. One is in the bath, the other is crying. One is feeding, the other is crying. One is getting attention, so the other wants attention and the list could go on forever. These issues aren't a big deal if there are at least two sets of hands around, but that's not always the case.

I went to the grocery store and left both babies at home with hubby. If they are in good moods we can split them and I'll take one to the store and hubby will keep one. After I left, both got hungry at the same time with only one set of hands to help them.

So I came home to this, the no handed twin feeding:




It was so funny when I walked in and saw hubby calmly looking at the babies while they calmly sucked their bottles while looking up at him with big eyes. I have fed them both while they laid on a pillow or have propped the bottle against something while I burped one, but have never seen them both sitting there with bottles propped against themselves. After I took pictures, we divided them up again and things were back to normal.

In other news, we had a HORRIFYING doctor's appointment. Watching my babies get immunizations almost made me vomit, the poor things were so upset. Ever did better than Ocean, but it was so sad to watch them during the appointment staring at me like "why are you allowing this?" Both my mom and I got peed on during weighing portion. It was chaos! Next one is at four months.

Here are their stats as of 8 weeks and 1 day:


10 lbs. 10 oz. - 32nd percentile
23.5 inches long - 74th percentile
He has slept nearly all through the night two nights in a row!


8 lbs. 4 oz. - 4th percentile
21.5 inches long - 10th percentile
She is a good sleeper at about 4-6 hours in the night. She is an easy night feeder because she can chug a bottle in about 15 minutes.


  1. OMG they just keep getting cuter!

  2. Aww I love the bottle pictures. :) they are so cute!

  3. High five to Dad for the calm feeding technique!! Never-say-never with twins, you know! And Happy First Father's Day to him, too!!

    Did your doc tell you to give them a dose of Tylenol or Motrin about 30 mins before your appt time? It will help considerably with the pain of the shots and also the slight fever you might get after as a side effect.

    So, out in public - are people constantly asking you how you tell them apart? Yours look so much alike (as did mine)! You'll be amazed at how many biology lessons you have to give..."A boy and a girl cannot be identical. There is this pretty major difference..."

  4. See! You're getting the hang of it! You'll be amazed at the things you'll come up with. They are gorgeous, and the shots DO get easier, promise.

    Happy First Father's Day!! Enjoy yourselves!

  5. Ashley, you have to most adorable babies. I love seeing new pictures of them. This has become my most addicted homepage, even above facebook. :)
    After I showed Brian the pictures of Mike's feeding set up, he said, see that's how men do it. Well well well. ;)

  6. They are too cute! I haven't been by your blog in awhile..I can't believe how big they got! Love it!
