Sunshine and Smiles

Wanted to share some new pictures of Emma and Joshua in their "You are my Sunshine" onesies:

They always look like they are telling each other secrets


Joshua, all serious



Sweet Emma


We also caught both of them smiling on camera. I wont lie- their smiles melt my heart.


Emma, with her tongue out too!

Joshua


You are the sunshine of my life
That's why I'll always be around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever you'll stay in my heart

I feel like this is the beginning,
Though I've loved you for a million years,
And if I thought our love was ending,
I'd find myself drowning in my own tears

You are the sunshine of my life,
That's why I'll always stay around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever you'll stay in my heart

6 weeks

I wanted to do another installment of "Things I dont want to forget, the Emma and Joshua version" especially since today is their 6 week birthday. So here goes:

Emma:

1. She has started to make little noises like "Owww" and "Ewww" and she sounds so cute when she does it.

2. Her hair has started to grow in even more and her hairline has moved down in the front. Oh and her eyebrows have come in, too!

3. Emma is a great sleeper. She loves to be swaddled and if you toss in her pacifier and the white noise machine, she is out.

4. She has been going through a spit-up phase, which is frustrating for me because Im afraid not enough is staying in. But she is getting wet and soiled diapers and is feeling heavier so the pediatrician isnt worried yet.

5. Although Dan wasn't keen on the whole "little princess" idea, Emma has started to become one. She loves to be held (and oftentimes screams when we put her down) and all she has to do is look at us with those big eyes and we both melt.

6. Everyone has told me that Emma looks like me. I can kinda see it but it will be interesting to see how they both change as they get older.

7. Dan and I call Emma "Peanut" She is so compact and always curls up like a little peanut.


Joshua:

1. Joshua is super-intense. He likes to just stare at you and study your face. Most of the time when I put him on my chest, I can see him raising his head to still try to get a look at me.

2. I took him to the pedi today because his belly button never healed properly. They had to put some silver nitrate on it and he will be good as new in 7-10 days.

3. Although Josh is currently pretty bald on top, i just noticed a "5-o'clock shadow" on his head. Yep, thats right, the hair is coming back! And this would be a good time to confess. So I might have been the one that rubbed Joshua's hair off. I was, um, putting lotion on his dry head and Im pretty sure I rubbed it off. I feel better coming clean. And I feel even better that its coming back!

4. We used to call Josh "Pokey" because he was so slow at eating. Well not anymore! He can finish a 3-4 oz bottle in 10-15 minutes. He has also started breastfeeding more but honestly, he prefers the bottle so I spend the extra time pumping so that I can feed him that way.

5. Joshua isn't a big fan of sleeping. Now he has no problem going down for a nap but he just lies there. With his eyes open and just stares. Dan and I joke that he is afraid he will miss something so he stays awake. He does eventually fall asleep but it just takes him alot longer.

6. Even though it makes me sad, he can't fit in alot of his newborn clothes anymore. Some of the stuff (sleepers) are ok but the onesies? Forget about it. He is too long and too wide so I will have to pack up some of his stuff this weekend.

7. Dan and I call Joshua "Beanie" as in string bean. He is so long and when I put him on my chest, his body stretches from my shoulders well into my lap. He is built like his mom and dad!


Here are some pictures:

Well thats all for now. Thanks for checking out my updates!

Crib Sleeping and my 6 week appointment

Well we did it, we got Emma and Joshua to sleep in their cribs. Actually, they are both sharing Emma's crib right now because its closest to the door and since they arent moving much when they sleep, there is plenty of room for both of them.

Before the cribs, they were sleeping in the Pack n' Play in our room at night. After we went to their appointment and found out their weights, we realized they had quickly outgrown the 15lb limit on the bassinet. At nap time, they would normally sleep in the Pack n' Play or in the Boppy pillows on our bed, like this:


Emma (and her pacifier)

Joshua (and Emma's seahorse)


Since they have been sleeping in their cribs, they have been going closer to 4 hours in between feedings and sometimes even 5, which means more sleep for me and Dan. Awesome. I also don't hear every little noise they make which also makes it easier for me to sleep.

I had my 6 week postpartum appointment today and everything went good. I have lost all but 5 of the pounds I gained. I have a feeling the last 5 lbs will be the hardest. Im really going to need to get my butt on the treadmill. I am cleared to go back to work but will continue to be off until March 1st, since I am using some of my own PTO. She did give me a prescription for the mini-pill but I am going to hold off on that for awhile. I guess I will see how long it takes for me to get my period again since I am breastfeeding and then make a decision from there.

I cant believe that Emma and Joshua will be 6 weeks in a couple days, time is flying. Hope everyone is enjoying their week!

Some things Id like to forget

I know I did a couple posts about Things I Don't Want to Forget. Well this post is dedicated to the things I could do without. Call it whining or complaining but there are some "not so glamourous" things about being a mom and if these things never happened again, I wouldn't mind. So here goes:

1. Where the heck is my bladder control? I really wish I would have heeded the reminders to do my daily kegels because I currently have to pee as often as I did when I was pregnant. And I am lucky if I don't pee my pants. Thats right, I said it. Pee my pants. Because its happened. Lovely.

2. I always wanted larger boobs but not ones that ache all.the.time. I guess its because I am feeding both E&J and pumping 8 times a day but I swear I don't get relief for long after I nurse. I won't complain much about this because Im glad to have an adequate supply for twins but man!

3. Why is it that both my babies know exactly when I remove the diaper from their bottom? Because both of them have peed and poo'd the second I have removed the dirty diaper and am quickly trying to get the clean diaper in place. It cant be more than 2 seconds but in that time, they have both dirtied me, the changing table and themselves.

4. How is it that E&J know when I have made myself something to eat? I can assure you I have not eaten a meal without holding a baby since we have been home from the hospital and it stinks. Im hungry!

5. I sometimes wonder why I even bother showering or putting on clean clothes. Because as soon as I do, someone pukes on me. The other day, I washed my hair in anticipation of going to the grocery store (im lame) and as I was burping Emma, she harfed all over my shoulder and hair. Yum.


So thats my list. Im still loving being a mom but wow, its hard. Its a contant lesson in patience and in multi-tasking. I have found that I am able to nurse Emma, pump on the other side and rock Joshua in the pack n' play using my foot- all at the same time!

Its funny because I always loved the song "It wont be like this for long" by Darius Rucker but the song has become more than just a song to me. Its like my mantra. I use it to remind myself to appreciate every moment. But oftentimes I use it so that I don't lose my mind! I repeat it over and over when its 2 AM and E&J are both screaming like crazy.

Alright, I've used up most of my ME time on writing this entry. Hope everyone is enjoying their week!

Chunky Monkeys

Emma and Joshua had their one month appointment today and are doing really well, I am so proud of them! Joshua surpassed Emma in weight by alot, which does not surprise me- the kid is HEAVY! But the pedi was very happy with both of their weight gains:

Birth
Emma- 6lbs 5oz
Joshua- 5lbs 12 oz

Going Home
Emma- 5lbs 12 oz
Joshua 5lbs 3 oz

2 weeks
Emma- 6lbs 8 oz
Joshua- 6lbs 3 oz

One month
Emma- 7lbs 12oz
Joshua- 8lbs 7oz


I am also proud of myself. Today was the first time I took the babies anywhere by myself. Dan had an important meeting at work and I really wanted to try to be independent and not feel confined to the house. So I fed and E&J and packed them into the Odyssey and took them to their appointment. It went really good but I will say it again- those car seat carriers are so heavy! Especially with my chunky babies in them, lol.

A few random pictures that I took:




Hope you guys are having a great day!

One Month Old

Emma and Joshua were ONE MONTH old yesterday. Since Dan and I spent two of their awake times taking more pictures of them, I did not have time to post so I am a day late.

I can't believe its been one month since my life changed completely, I love it.

They have their one month appointment on Wednesday so I dont have any height or weight stats until then but I can tell you this, both of them have grown. ALOT. I don't think they are at 8 lbs yet but both are well over 7. And I am also pretty sure Josh is bigger than Emma.

Both babies have smiled at us and even if its probably gas, Id like to think they hear my voice and are smiling at me. They are both still wearing Newborn clothes but I did switch them to Size 1 diapers yesterday. This was partially because I have 3 huge boxes of Size 1's to use but also because the diapers seemed a bit snug around their tummy areas. The Size 1's are big on them but as of yet, haven't leaked so I think they are ok.

Joshua started getting some "baby male pattern baldness" yesterday, lol. His hairline has receded up a bit and it looks like he might be losing some of his hair. It makes him look like an old man but still so cute!

Emma's hair, on the other hand, seems to be growing even more and when she wakes up, its sticking up in all directions. My goal today or tomorrow is to take a video of them when they first wake up, its so cute!

They are doing pretty good with sleeping, too. We are at 4 days in a row where they have went 4.5-5 hours between one nightime feeding, which has given Dan and I a bit more sleep. I credit this extended sleep to the Swaddleme Blanket, they both love it.

Here are some of the pictures we took yesterday, Enjoy!

First Bath

Since Joshua lost his umbilical cord 12/7 and Emma lost hers on 12/10, we decided to give them both a bath on Sunday. Before starting the baths, I was convinced that Joshua would not like his and Emma would love it. Well they proved me wrong!

Joshua went first:

So relaxed


All snuggled up



With mommy (and not happy, go figure! lol)
Joshua let us know he was done with his bath when he peed in the water. I grabbed him out of there pretty quickly so that he wouldnt get dirty again! Overall, he liked the bath even though he didnt like his first bath in the hospital.

Since things went so good with Josh, I was optimistic for Emma's experience. To say that she hated her bath is a severe understatement- she despised it. She let out repeated screams that sounded similar to a raptor in Jurassic Park. At some point, I just looked at her in wonder that such a horrible noise was coming out of such a small baby! Needless to say, Emma's bath lasted about 2 minutes.


Not happy



Absolutely furious


Still quite angry


The babies are 4 weeks old today, I cant believe it. They are getting bigger and bigger and I cant wait for their one month appointment next week to see how much they weigh. Im fairly certain that both of them are well over 7lbs, they feel so much heavier!

Thank you so much for your kind words about the passing of my grandpa. My heart is heavy but the support of friends does make a difference. So thanks!

Smile though your heart is aching;
Smile even though it's breaking.
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by.
If you smile through your fear and sorrow,
Smile and maybe tomorrow,
You'll see the sun come shining through for you.

Light up your face with gladness,
Hide every trace of sadness.
Although a tear may be ever so near,
That's the time you must keep on trying,
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile,
If you just smile.

That's the time you must keep on trying,
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile.

He will live on


The world lost an amazing man, father, grandfather and great-grandfather yesterday. My grandpa Bob passed away at 11:02 AM on Tuesday December 12th. My parents were at his side.

I dont know if I can begin to express the sadness that I feel from losing him. At 30 years old, my grandparents have come to define what it means to me to be a family. They have always made everything they do about their family. When I say that any of my grandparents would do absolutely anything for my sister, me or my parents, I mean it.

I want this post to be about things I remember about my grandpa so that someday, I can share them with Emma and Joshua. I named Joshua Robert after my grandpa for a reason- I always wanted the memory of my grandpa to live on in him. And now it will.

1. When I was little, I called my grandpa "Froggy" We used to wrestle and I would sit up on his chest. He was always so kinda and gentle with us

2. I had a little red suitcase that said "Going to Grandma's" on it and I used to pack it to take to my grandparents house. Many times they would pick us up from my parents and I would sit up front (this is before proper car seats, lol) and cuddle with my grandparents

3. My grandpa was a salesman, he worked for many coat and dress companies. He always brought us dresses and coats and would compliment us on how beautiful we looked

4. My grandpa was big on tradition. He liked to do the same things all the time. When I think about it, these traditions made our family special. The traditions included going to Salt Fork, ribs for Christmas dinner and playing bocce ball and horeshoes during summer holidays

5. My grandpa loved my grandma more than life itself. He would of done anything for her. Im not sure he was ever quite the same after she passed away. Sure, he continued living but you could tell a part of him had died. I guess thats what happens when you love someone for over 50 years.

Thats all for now. Someday, I will add more to this post but right now, its hard. My only comfort is that my grandpa isn't alone. Right inside the gates of heaven, he was greeted by my grandma and my uncle. And the pain he carried from losing them was magically washed away. That brings me some peace.

Yesterday, I rocked both babies in the rocking chair my grandpa gave to me. The rocking chair has been in our family for 5 generations and his mother had rocked him in it. What an amazing legacy. Now its up to me and my sister and my parents to pass on the legacy of those who have passed on to my children and to my sister's children someday. So that like the rocking chair, the stories can be in our family forever.

The rocking chair

Thank you all for your prayers for my grandpa and my family. They mean the world to me.



Blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there's pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name

You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord, blessed be Your name

Product Reviews

Well since I've been a mom all of 3 weeks and 4 days, I wanted to give my input on some of the baby items we have loved. Im doing this now because honestly, I dont want to forget to share this info and feel like if I wait any longer, I will. So here goes:

Love:

1. Carter's Receiving Blankets- we have a bunch of other kinds, too, but these are hands down the best. They are soft and large. Love them.

2. Medela Tender Care Lanolin. I know alot of people use Lanisoh for their nipple cream but I prefer this one. It spreads easier and provides me more comfort.

3. Disposable Breast Pads WITH the sticky back that helps stick to your bra. I have these:

http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3504469

They are cheaper than alot of the other kinds but they stay in your bra better with the sticky back.

4. Fisher Price Soothing Seahorse- The babies LOVE this thing. We have the seahorses and then we have the Playskool glow worms and all of them entertain E&J.

5. The Germ Guardian- I keep this in our bedroom and I can drop pacifiers and nipples in it to sanitize. This has saved me so much time!

6. For bottles, since Joshua is drinking BM via bottles, I love the Playtex drop-ins and the Avent bottles. I know that the Avent bottles dont always get good reviews (leaking) but I have never had that problem with them and for awhile, it was the only bottle Josh would drink out of.

7. Dreft stain spray- I have been spraying all of the spit up from E&J's clothes and blankets before I put them in the hamper and none of them have stained. Im not using Dreft detergent (using All Free and Clear- cheaper) but using the stain spray helps give the clothes a great smell.

8. Cloth diapers- these really do make the best burp clothes. They are big and absorbent. The other best burp clothes I have are some flannel receiving blankets that I cut into squares. Someone passed down some blankets to me and I didnt need anymore but I did need more burp clothes. These work great.

9. Medela PISA breast pump- I am so glad I purchased one instead of renting. This one is easy to move around with and has great suction. I also highly recommend getting extra sets of the pump parts and bottles so that you dont have to wash all the time. I have 3 sets.

10. Diaper sacks. I actually found some at the Dollar Tree (of all places!) and its a box of 75 for a dollar. They are scented just like the more expensive ones. I put one on the changing table and I am able to put 4-6 diapers in it before I have to take the sack to the garbage and throw it out. I keep the bag tightly closed between changings and honestly, it keeps the smell in. I am VERY sensitive to smells but our nursery doesnt stink when I leave the bag on the changing table.


In addition to these items, the only other things we really needed to come home from the hospital were our car seats, the pack n play and diapers. We use the bouncy chairs often but they dont really soothe the babies, although they do like to sit in them. We have yet to buy a swing and have not missed it.

A few other items that we dont have or dont use are:

1. Boppy pillow- I actually do not use a pillow for breastfeeding, maybe because E&J are still small. Now we do use them to prop the babies up for sitting, so I am glad we have them, but I dont use them for feeding

2. Bundleme. I really thought I would love these but they seem to overwhelm the babies and I cant get a good fit with the car seat straps

3. Wipe warmers- these seem like a huge waste to me. The wipes arent that cold

4. Bottle warmers- I feed Josh his BM at room temp. If it is in the fridge for some reason, I just run it under hot water for a few minutes

5. Huggies diapers- These are ok on Emma but they leak ever.single.time on Josh

6. Diaper Genie- see above set up with the diaper sacks. I swear to you, it works wonders.

7. Any kind of timer, like the Itzbeen. All I have is a notebook, where I track each feeding and poo/pee. I also have a column to track how much breastmilk I pump. Its nothing fancy but its easy and it does the job.


Alright, so thats what I have so far. Just wanted to share!

Photoshoot and a challenge

Dan and I took some pictures of Joshua and Emma the other day and I think they came out pretty good. Once they are older, I will take them somewhere for photos but for now, this will have to do. Wanted to share a few with you guys:


Emma close-up



Joshua close-up






One challenge that I am noticing is that I am struggling with spending enough time with each baby. I feel like I get to spend alot of time with Emma since I am nursing her but then I interact more with Joshua, to make up for the time I spend with Emma. I know this is just a case of "mommy guilt" but I can see its something Im going to have to deal with. If any MoMs or anyone else has any suggestions on how to deal with this, Im all ears!

And in breastfeeding news, it is going really well and I am glad. I know its not always an easy thing but I feel fortunate that, for now, its something I am able to do. Emma has not yet had a bottle and although Joshua will only nurse for a short time, I am able to pump about 16 oz per day, which means I only supplement with 8oz of formula.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend and staying warm! Looks like it is pretty cold just about everywhere!

Prayer Requests

I love the fact that since I have started blogging, I have found people who support me and people who I can support. I have cheered on BFPs, mourned losses and celebrated milestones- all with people I have never met. Its amazing to have that kind of support.

Im asking for prayers for two people and am hoping that in true Blog-world fashion, you could all take a minute to send up some prayers or good thoughts for two people.

1. My grandpa Bob is in the hospital and is struggling. He went in with double pneumonia but then they found that he needs a triple bypass and he has issues with his corotid artery. He is stable but he needs our prayers. Please pray that God heals him and comforts him as the doctors do all they can for him.


2. My friend from HS, Jenni. She and her husband Chris have been struggling with IF for quite some time and she could use our support. I think that anyone who has struggled with IF knows how lonely it can feel. Please pray that God guides their journey and blesses them with a family. Here is her blog:

http://jenandchris-babydreams.blogspot.com/


Thanks for taking the time to read and for any prayers or good thoughts you can send up. I appreciate it!

Things I dont want to forget- The Joshua and Emma version


Two days before I delivered E&J, I wrote a post about things I didnt want to forget. Since the babies are 3 weeks old today, I think its time for another post of memories from the past 3 weeks.
Joshua:


With Mommy


Go Brownies!



1. You are so alert and you fight going to sleep. Your little eyes will start to close but then you will flinch and open them back up. I oftentimes feel like you are looking right at me and I like taking the time to put you up close to my face and give you kisses


2. Mommy needs more practice putting diapers on little boys. You have peed out your diaper many of times once its on and sometimes Mommy isnt quick enough to get a diaper back on you and you tinkle on the changing table. I'll work on it, I promise!

3. Although we try every time, you are just not interested in breastfeeding. Actually, you look repulsed at the thought. If Im lucky, I get you to nurse for about 3-5 minutes and then its onto your bottle of pumped milk.

4. Speaking of the bottle, Daddy and I call you "Pokey" It takes you forever to eat your 3 oz of breastmilk. Forever. But you seem to be getting faster and I still havent given up hope that you will catch onto breastfeeding

5. You have the funniest startle reflexes. Your arms will go out like a zombie until you relax. It always makes me smile


Emma:


All dressed up



One of Emma's funny faces


1. You are such a cuddly baby. You like to curl up on our chests and stay there. But if its feeding time, watch out! You'll try to breastfeed anything in your way, including daddy's neck or my shirt. It doesnt matter!

2. You are a champion breastfeeder and have yet to have a bottle except a half ounce left in one of Joshua's bottles- which you proceeded to suck down in 3 large gulps. Quite the opposite of your brother!

3. Mommy loves dressing you in cute outfits and you seem to like it, too. You are so patient as I struggle to get your little arms and legs into the cute things I have for you.

4. You make the funniest expressions when you wake up, you almost look like The Joker. You scrunch your face up and twist your neck, I laugh at your sweet faces all the time.

5. When I cant get you down to sleep, I walk with you around the house. You even like when I do chores like putting away dishes or laundry, as long as you can lay close on my chest while I do it.

Hope everyone is having a good week!

And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times

It's you, it's you, you make me sing.

You're every line, you're every word, you're everything.

You're a carousel, you're a wishing well

And you light me up, when you ring my bell.

You're a mystery, you're from outer space,

You're every minute of my everyday.


And I can't believe, uh that I'm your man (mom, lol)

And I get to kiss you baby just because I can.

Whatever comes our way, ah we'll see it through,

And you know that's what our love can do.

Life after pregnancy

Towards the end of my pregnancy, I was miserable. I couldnt sleep, all I wanted to do was pee and eat and I didnt fit into any of my clothes. But its weird. Now that I am not pregnant, I miss it. Like alot. I love that Emma and Joshua are here but maybe I am a bit selfish because there is part of me that liked having them all to myself. Its hard to explain but it was like a secret that only the three of us were in on. I had them with me at all times and could feel their every kick and move. It made me feel special.


Don't get me wrong. Im glad they are here and I am thrilled to be able to share them with everyone but I would be lying if I said I didnt miss the time when it was just me and them.


So will I get pregnant again? Its amazing how many people have asked me this already. My answer is that I don't know whats in store for us. One thing that I learned while TTC is that you cant plan how you want things to be. You have to have faith that God's plan is bigger than you'll ever know. And thats how I feel about the prospect of having more children.


I also wanted to clear something up from my previous post where I talk about enjoying every moment with E&J. By no respect will I ever claim to be a super mom. This is hard work. Im tired and Im not always patient. Last night I looked at Joshua, while he was screaming his sweet little head off, and I called him a less than favorable name. I followed it up with kisses but still, Im not perfect. I just want to be honest and let everyone know that as much as I am appreciating every moment, its not easy and I do find myself getting annoyed and irritated, especially on little sleep.


Finally, here is my 40 week belly pic- Or 2 weeks post partum, lol. Im looking forward to my 6 week follow up appointment and hope to get cleared to start some walking or even running on the treadmill.

Updates, updates and more updates


I cant believe it- Joshua and Emma are over 2 weeks old! They had their 2 week appointment on Thursday and both babies PASSED their birth weights- wow!
Joshua- Birth weight-5lbs, 12oz .
2 week weight- 6lbs, 3 oz.

Emma- Birth weight- 6lbs, 5oz.
2 week weight- 6lbs, 8 oz

I was really happy with this for several reasons. First, I am EBF Emma and it made me feel good to know I am doing a good job. And then with Joshua, well, he is a SUPER slow and pokey eater. He has not taken to nursing that well so I am only able to nurse him about 5 minutes and then we bottle feed him the remainder. I did buy a pump, though, so he is getting mostly breastmilk but we do have to supplement with formula until I can get more of a supply.

The past two weeks have been challenging and fun, all rolled into one. We are on a 3 hour feed schedule and the babies do pretty good with getting woken up, getting kisses, eating, being changed and then going back to bed. Except at the midnight and 3 AM feedings. At those times, its nearly impossible to get them to go back to bed. So we are trying to keep them up more during the day on the activity mat or doing massages and playtime and we hope that gets them sleeping a bit more. Plus the pedi did say we could eliminate one night feeding so I am trying to get rid of the 3 AM feeding. They made it 4.5 hours last night before waking up which meant extra sleep for Dan and I!

Here are some pictures for your enjoyment.

Emma Sleeping
Those Carseat Carries are HEAVY!

Towards the end of my pregnancy, everyone tried to warn me on how hard it was to have a baby and how much work it would be. I knew there was no way I could prepare myself for what it would be like to have one baby, much less two. But I promised myself that I would enjoy every part of it. I would not "wish away" the early morning feedings, the lack of sleep and the fussy babies because in all honesty, this might be the only time I ever get to do this. (Will there be a 3rd baby? Only time will tell, lol) I can say that so far, I am doing this. Sure, Im tired and Id give my Ugg boots for more than 2 hours of consecutive sleep but I love ever.single.moment. of my life right now. I feel blessed that God has entrusted me with these two beautiful beings and I realize the importance of being the best mother I can be. I hope I can always remember that.
Happy 2010 to all of my friends and blog readers. I hope this year brings you all of the happiness you deserve!
It won’t be like this for long
One day soon we'll look back laughin’
At the week we brought her home
This phase is gonna fly by
So baby just hold on
‘Cause it won't be like this for long
