Debate This!

I need to watch the debate and write up some associate and partner reviews so I don't have time for a real update yet - despite how long it has been.

Instead I will placate you with photos of the kids. Grammie and Bumpa were completely enchanted with their Princess Penny on Sunday. Look at those neck muscles when Grammie was keeping her sitting up in the Boppy! They love that they can feed a child when they visit (while I breastfeed the other). Both kids are much more awake during the day and on Monday I got them to hang out on the blanket together for 15 mins before they started melting down. The exercise ball I have is another "savior" device - it calms them down when I bounce up and down on it. If only I could figure out how to hold both kids at once...

The eyebrows in the last picture totally remind me of when we were babies. And by remind me, I mean from looking at pictures :-)

Holding two at once is totally doable, but you'll need to invest in some babywearing gear. Your best bet at this age is a stretchy wrap or two pouches. I liked the adjustable pouches because it meant my husband or other helpers could also use them.

Check out The Babywearer's article on wearing twins:

Email me if you want more info. You can always ask Nancy for my email address if you can't find it in the Founding chapter directory.
