Two Weeks At Home

Holy moly, how our lives have changed in these last few weeks.  The twins have been home for 2 weeks now, and our lives now consist of feeding, changing diapers, and trying to squeeze in any minute of sleep here and there that we possibly can.  Shame on every parent out there for keeping this sleep deprivation thing a secret from the rest of us unsuspecting soon-to-be parents.  I know, I know, you always hear people say how tiring taking care of a baby is.  But I never dreamed it would be this bad.  Jeff and I walk around our house like zombies.  We can't even carry on a conversation anymore because we are so tired.  But....

looking at these faces every day makes it all so worth it.

Miss Alexis:

You are going to be our little diva.  When you wake up you want your food, and you want it NOW.  I laugh every single time I feed you because your rooting is out of this world.  You search for anything and everything you can find to suck on until that bottle hits your lips.  You are also Miss Independent.  While you do still love to cuddle, you are also okay with being left alone to get your beauty sleep.  You already bring me so much joy, and I can't wait to see what kind of little girl you grow up to be.


As you can see, you make the cutest faces.  I know it's involuntary at this point, but you have the best smile - it melts my heart every time.  You are pretty easy-going, although you seem to have found your voice in the last few days.  I think you have taken cues from your sister and decided you don't want to patiently wait for your food anymore, and loudly tell us when it's your time as well.  You love to cuddle, and mama wishes she had more time to do so with you. 
Since time is limited I'll have to settle for a photo dump:
(Everyone is ready to go home!)
(We're bustin' outta this joint)
(these Rock 'N Plays have been a lifesaver.  If you are considering getting one, I highly recommend it)



  1. Oh my gosh, they are so so cute!

  2. They are so adorable! Twins are the best enjoy!!!!

  3. So sweet. Yes, the fatigue is insane for a while. Get help whenever you can because it may save you. Glad to see you all doing well though!

  4. Good work Parents ! Those babies are adorable and look like they are thriving !

  5. so happy that you are getting them home.

  6. oh jenny, i'm SO happy for you! i loved reading about alexis and chase and seeing your beautiful photos. love the pic of you ready to leave the hospital...what an amazing moment that must have been. i've been thinking about you lots. sending love to you all xoxox

  7. Congratulations! It's my new job to peruse fetility blogs at times and offer encouragement and congrats on having succes. (it's with an egg bank). I find it a bio-polar world where on one side it's terribly depressing for those who can't conceive, and on the other like yours how great it is when you can. Again congrats.

  8. Congratulations on making it through 2 weeks and not killing each other! We're at 4 months now with our boys and the past month has gotten so much better in regards to sleep (getting maybe 5 hours straight really makes a difference!) Hang in there, girl. If you can afford it, get a night nanny pronto. If you can't afford it, ask your friends and family to donate money so you can afford it! It was worth every penny to have her even just 1 night a week!
