Weather Delay

Well, the boys were supposed to have their first photo shoot today, but it got delayed due to weather. Hopefully we will be able to do it tomorrow and then I can get their birth announcements together to mail to all of you, my loyal readers. Speaking of my loyal readers, I want to give a shout out to all of you who post comments. I love to read them and they really do encourage me to write more frequently. Thanks, Lori, for your response to yesterday's post; I worked particularly hard on that one to get the humor of the story across. I love ya, girl!
One thing they tell you about having two babies at a time, it is hard. And it is. Brock was fussy all night last night and Tony held him from 4:30 until 6:00. And he had to feed both boys between 5 and 5:30. When he got them both back to bed, I had to get Brock and hold him not even five minutes later. This was okay until about 6:30 when Braden started fussing, too. So I tried to put Braden paci back in for about fifteen minutes until I realized that wasn't going to work so I had to try and hold both of them (not easy to do) and soothe them at the same time. And then Sydney woke up! People always say it is hard going from one kid to two, I say try going from one to three! I can't even imagine how my friends (not really) Jon and Kate did it going from 2 to 8! And I saw on the news this morning that somebody in California was delivering seven babies today and when they got the seventh one out, they found another baby!! How do you not know you are having 8 babies?! I cannot even imagine having eight babies. I only have two (three with Sydney) and I feel like I will never be able to function without help. God bless them.

If only you had a few more arms or if only you had 6 more kids at one time to allow you to have a tv show and a community of hands on deck. I pray they get on a nice routine that lets you get more than power naps. You are so awesome!

I know--an EXTRA, EIGHT baby? Holy Moly!

I will say that my nurse told me that she bets there is a reason I have two babies' names AND a very strong feeling to transfer TWO (vice the doctor's suggestion of one) embryos...Twins scare the HECK out of me, but...oh....the thought...and watching yours grow and having your path to follow all these months...I can't lie and say I wouldn't be TICKLED PINK (and maybe blue, too!)

Glad I could help emphasize what those poor Babies R Us people must have been thinking--"Why is that woman so excited we have two of these dumb car beds? I think they are ugly anyway. Shoot...a bed that has headlights and looks like a car? Kids today are WAY spoiled." I feel them!

I saw that about the 8 babies!! And all the articles didn't mention a Daddy. You know there had to be a Daddy involved in that situation!!

Speaking of Jon & Kate, I am "friends" with them too :)
