In the meantime, just spewing my thoughts out when I can will have to do...
Big Boy and Pretty Girl have been suffering from a cold for about 2 weeks now.
Miss O. brought it home and in no time the runny noses, coughs, and fussiness started. Within a week, I had it too.
On Sunday, Big Boy started running a fever.
Yesterday it spiked to 103.9.
Ran to the doctor.
Poor little guy has an ear infection. Lots of screaming last night, but at least the fever has gone back down to a more manageable 100 degrees or so.
I hope the antibiotics work quick.
"Operation Lose the Twin Weight...and then some" is back in business.
Within the first 5 months of their life, the weight was melting off me. I have to think that the tandem BF and then BF and pumping was a big help, but I could eat pretty much anything I wanted and still lost weight. If I paid even a *little* bit of attention to what I was shoving in my mouth, I would lose even more.
By March, I was down 60 pounds.
That was 10 more pounds than I had gained with them.
Since the end of March, I've managed to put 10 pounds back on. I'm blaming the weather, not watching what I'm eating, and Pretty Girl and Big Boy consuming less breast milk.
I'm back to watching every bite that enters my mouth and trying to exercise at least 3 times a week.
Both babies are really doing well.
Pretty Girl says "MaMa", waves goodbye, crawls, cruises, and claps. She love, love, LOVES her big sister and wants to be with Miss O. all the time!
Big Boy says, "DaDa", claps, crawls FAST, cruises and stands on his own for 20 to 30 seconds at a time. I have no doubt that he will be walking soon.
I can't believe that they are 10 months already.
People never seem to stop amazing me with their stupid remarks.
Just yesterday, a lady at Sam's Club looked at the twins and said, "Aww, a boy and a girl. Now you're done having kids."
Uh, yeah, thanks for making that decision for me.
We're trying to decide on what to do for vacation this year.
Originally a week at the beach sounded great...but then I thought about it.
A week at the beach with two kids just over 1?
Hmmm...I don't know.
I had started a Couch to 5K program a couple of weeks ago.
Then the cold hit me, and I couldn't walk without wheezing, let alone run.
So, I'm going to restart it again.
I'm going to learn to love to run, even if it kills me.
So, that's a peek into my world.
What's going on in yours? Any great vacations planned? Do you freak out over fevers? What do you say to stupid remarks from strangers?
