I’m taking this opportunity while my husband feeds the babies from a bottle in the other room to make this quick sketch of me holding both twins. I’m copying it from a photo D took earlier today.
This was sort of a milestone, so I’m happy to be able to record it in some way. Now that M and Bean’s necks are strong enough, it’s possible to pick them both up and comfort them together in my lap. What an improvement from the “pick one up, the other cries, put the first down, pick the other up and then the first cries again,” dance I’ve been doing up until now. In fact they were so comfortable they both fell asleep. The new problem is then I was stuck pinned to the couch under two sleeping babies. But in any case it was better than two crying babies!
