Last Night

Ok, if every night was like last night I might be able to survive. I was in bed and asleep by 10pm. Neither of the girls gave us a fight in going to bed either. Taylor woke up a little before 2 am. I fed her and then fed Emily since she was moving around and was back in bed by 2:30am. Woke up at 4:30am to get ready for work. Now's that's my kind of night! Of course I'd love it if they slept the whole night but I don't think that's going to happen anytime soon! LOL!

Mom's Night Out but EXHAUSTED now.

Mom's Night out last night was fun. We went to The Melting Pot. All I have to say is Chocolate fondue YUM!!!! Oh my god. We had the original one that had chocolate with peanut butter and it was just YUMMY! It was yummy with the strawberry, the banana the orea covered marshmellow basically anything dipped into it was YUMMY!!! The rest of the meal was ok. I didn't realize you actually cook the meat yourself. They give you raw meat, we got filet mignon, chicken, salmon, and shrimp and you dip it in the boiling water that is flavored with broth etc and it cooks the meat that way. It was good, I just worry that I need to make sure I cook it enough so it's not underdone. But anyway, it was really good. Only bad thing is I didn't get home until 11:30pm woke up at 2am to feed Emily and then Taylor and did bottles otherwise we wouldn't have had any in the morning. So I got back in bed at 3:45am to wake up at 4:30am. So I'm running on 3 hours sleep. Can you say EXHAUSTED. I had a ton of fun but I won't be doing that again anytime soon. At least not until the girls are sleeping through the night.

I have to say though, I think they are going through another growth spurt. They are eating like crazy. At least Taylor is. I guess both of them had 6 ozs at their 3pm feed and then Taylor had almost 8 ozs at 8pm and then woke up at 2:30 and gobbled down another 4 ozs. Since she had almost 8 ozs I wasn't expecting her to wake up. Oh well. And on the sleeping front Emily goes down for bed easily!! Of course when she wakes up at night to eat she doesn't really go back to bed though. :( Taylor on the other hand UGH! She won't go to sleep but when she finally goes to sleep she'll usually sleep through the rest of the night. Can't I make them have the best of each other and have them go to bed easily and sleep through the night?!?! I know this will get easier and they will eventually sleep through the night and this will be a distant memory but can't it be sooner rather than later?

Back at Work

So I'm back at work now. It really isn't too diffucult to leave the kids. I think I'm just use to it since I've done it for so long now with Connor. It's nice to see them when I get home though. I won't lie. =) Work is fine. It's as if I was never gone. I just got back into my routine here no problem. Only difference is I get to take the train from Buena Park now so I'm home right at 5:30 now which is nice. That's 10 mins earlier than before. And about 5 more mins of sleep on the train each way too.

Yesterday wasn't too bad but today I am just totally exhausted. Don't ask me why either. Surbjit did the night shift last night and poor guy's been up since 1 this morning. I put the kids to bed last night. Emily was passed out by 9:30pm but Taylor did not want to go to sleep. I could tell she was tired but she would just stare at me as I held her. Finally at 10:30 I was like you gotta go to bed so I put her in bed fully awake. Usually she'd cry after I did this but she didn't make a peep. Yeah! But then Emily woke up at 1am so Surbjit fed her 2 1/2 ozs (all she would take) and put her back to bed but she just kept crying out every so often that he couldn't fall back asleep and stayed up. I was dead to the world. At least Taylor slept through till 5 am this morning. Why can't we get both of them to do that at the same time though?!?

Tonight I'm going out with my working moms group for a mom's night out. We are hitting up the Melting Pot. Should be fun. I've always wanted to go and never had anyone to go with so this is perfect! It'll be a late night though because our reservations are for 8:30pm. Oh well. I'll get to take a nap this weekend (hopefully!). Or maybe I'll get to take a nap at work tomorrow. Hee hee!

Well, I should go but I want to tell you about something funny that Connor said the other day. We (Surbjit, Connor and myself) were in the kitchen and Connor was eating dinner last week. Surbjit let out this big fart. Connor looked at us and said "Daddy poo poo." We busted out laughing hysterically. It was so funny. Poor Connor though must have thought we were laughing at him because he burst out crying. My poor son. He is so sensitive sometimes. Hopefully he grows out of that.

First Week Down

Well, the girls have made it through their first week at daycare. And I got quite a bit done this week that I needed to get done. Of course my house still isn't clean but I don't think it ever will be completely clean! They seem to do great with Jackie and are doing good at night for the most part. I think I figured out the best way to put them to bed now. I have to do them one at a time. That way there is only one crying at one point in time. It worked for the most part last night. I put Emily to bed and she cried for a little bit but then feel asleep. Then I put Taylor to bed and she cried out occasionally but never woke up her sister and finally feel asleep too. I got them in bed around 10pm and they slept until 1:30am and 2am. So it wasn't too bad.

I go back to work on Monday. I'm looking forward to it and I'm not. I can't believe I've been off work for 5 months. FIVE MONTHS! It will definitely be an adjustment.

First Day of Daycare

So today is the twins first day at daycare. I don't know if I mentioned it but they are not going to the same place that Connor is going to. They are going to a lady named Jackie that lives in our neighborhood. She actually used to watch our friends daughter which is how we found her. I had called back when I had Connor trying to get him in there but she didn't have any openings at that time. This time I got really lucky and she had spots for both of the girls!! I thought I was really going to have a hard time finding room for two babies.

So today was Surbjit's first day getting all the kids ready and out the door. He did good. The girls were cooperative today and so was Connor so that helped. Hopefully they stay cooperating. I'll be able to help until about 5:40am when I leave to catch the train but after that he's on his own. And this morning he did everything. I just stayed in bed. =) It was nice to sleep in.

So this will be this week and then I'm back at work in one week. I'm looking forward to it and I'm not. It'll be nice to actually get back into a routine but I'm dreading all the e-mails and crap that is waiting for me. One day at time, right?

Now you don't have to keep checking this blog to see when I've updated. LOL! Just go to the right and you can see a place to put in your e-mail address and you will be notified whenever my blog is updated! So enjoy! And I promise I will try and update more often!!!

It's been a Month!

I really can't do this! I need to update more often. Bad me. Actually I've been busy updating the blog with past thoughts I have written down in other places so that's why there is old posts on here. It's not because anyone is crazy. LOL! I did all those today. I can't believe the girls are going to be 2 months old tomorrow.

I can't begin to tell you how many times I've said to myself how easier this would be if I only had one. But, you have to deal with that hand that dealt and I think Surbjit and I doing pretty good. It's getting easier as the days go on. We have gotten the girls into somewhat of a schedule. They wake up at 5am so we can get ready and out the door to work. Poor Surbjit is going to have his hands full in the morning but he'll do just fine. I'll help with feeding one of the girls in the morning before I leave for work but I leave at 5:45 am so he'll have an hour after I'm gone to be all alone. I know he'll do fine though.

The girls eat about every three hours right now. I wake them up if they haven't woken up. I know they say never to wake a sleeping baby but let me tell you. You don't want the two of them bunching up on you. I've had a crying baby while I'm feeding the other and that is no fun!! We have a bedtime routine and for the most part, the girls understand it's time to go to bed. They get a bath every other night and then we change them and feed them. We usually feed them at the same time because they don't normally wake up at the same time. Emily will wake up once sometimes twice a night and Taylor wakes up twice sometimes once a night. It seems they are starting to only wake up once a night but I don't want to jinx it! So I'm getting sleep. It's not too bad. I just have to go to bed right when the girls do and I'm usually fine all day.

They are both smiling now and they have beautiful smiles! It just melts my heart. Everytime I put Emily on the changing table to change her, she starts smiling at me. It's just absolutely melts my heart. I've been trying to get a picture of them smiling but that's not happening so much. But I'll keep trying!

In Connor news (we can't forget about big brother right!) he's doing pretty good. We went to a 2 year old birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese this past Saturday. He is momma's boy. He is a scaredy cat of all the rides. He wouldn't get on anything even though his friend would ride it. They have a phone that you can talk with Chuck E on and that is what he was glued to the whole time. He also just this past week started carrying a stuffed animal around. It's a bunny that sings and plays music, I think it's called the laugh and learn bunny. He found it in the bottome of his toy pile and started playing with it. He wanted him to eat with him so bunny sat in his high chair with him complete with bib. It was just too cute! He even talks to bunny and says bunny eat and will feed him his food! Here is Connor and bunny eating pizza!!
Not much else to say. We still haven't been camping yet but are planning on braving it coming February. Connor keeps asking and LOVES the motorhome. We can't get him out of there without a fight when we bring it home. So I know Connor can't wait to camping. It'll be interesting having three kids camping.
It's definitely different going from one kid to three but we are managing and it's getting better day by day. I just think of the future and how fun they will all have playing together and just watching them grow up. I am also very interested to see the girls develop and see how different or alike they look and act. I can already tell they are both extremely different temperament wise so it'll be fun to see them interact together.
Well, I better get going. I've got some stuff to do before it's feeding time again!!
