Big brother Duncan had a soccer game yesterday, not that he actually plays, but it's fun for him! He is doing great, but is really demanding more attention. He does love "his" babies, though. So much that I caught him licking them.

We are on our own at this point and need to figure out how we'll work it out. Last night we tried shifts, with me sleeping from midnight to three, and Iain sleeping from thee to six. My only issue is when it's time for me to pump, what do I do when both babies decide they are hungry? That is what happened last night. I put off pumping, had one baby on one knee and the other propped up on a pillow beside me and with one bottle, alternated between them (yes, I let them share bottles...Mommy of the Year!). It wasn't bad, but I don't know how much I can do that. I am thinking that if I can get up my supply, my only goal will be to pump enough milk to give them SOME breast milk every day, and not try to feed them exclusively EBM. I am taking this "tincture" called More Milk Plus. Egad it's gruesome stuff. I can dilute it in one ounce of juice to get it down but it still tastes like old, wet moldy grass. Happy times!

I will get pics of Finn, too. I promise.

  1. Glad to hear that Duncan licks the babes, I mean "likes" the babes. :) Too funny!

    Love the new pics. of Claire. She's precious and looks like she's growing great too!

    Other than being completely exhausted how are you feeling? Hope you are healing quickly.

    So very very happy for you, my friend! I can imagine your exhaustion right now, but am eagerly looking forward to hearing more 'Duncan & Babies' stories as the months pass.

    Your daughter is a beauty!

    Can't wait to read more and see more pics!

    It is good for you to blog about these days because I feel like I have few memories of this time in the lives of my twins.

  4. How are you guys doing? Do you think Kev and I might be able to stop by on Sat. to meet your cutie pies & bring them their gift? Not sure if you are up for company yet or not, but thought I would ask. I will get a sitter for the boys. Hope you are feeling better each and every day.
