Through our local twins club I met a woman who was interested in cloth diapering. We will call her Liz. She and I have become friends. She is pregnant with twin girls.
At around 17 1/2 weeks baby A’s sac ruptured. The doctors said there was nothing they could do until after 24 weeks. Liz was put on strict bed rest.
She will be 22 weeks tomorrow. Each week she goes in for an ultrasound. Baby A still has no amniotic fluid. Yet, she survivies. Aparently she keeps making fluid, but it leaks out. Both babies continue to grow. Both have strong heartbeats.
As you know, I was on strict bed rest for the last part of my prenancy. It is SOOOOoooo Hard!!! It is the hardest thing I have ever done. Liz has been on bed rest for over a month. I am so very proud of her! She is doing a wonderful job, baking those babies!
Anyway, please please keep Liz, her husband D, and their twin girls (nicknamed, the “aliens”) in your thoughts and prayers. Every little bit helps!
I apologize for not keeping up on posting. The Wonder Twins have bad colds. They both sport runny noses and glazed over eyes. I feel so bad for them. I have been letting them eat and sleep whenever they feel like it. I know that is what I would want to do if I were sick.
The big news of the hour… Duh duh duh DUHHHHhh… On Saturday I felt Little Frog’s 1st tooth coming in!!!!!!!! She had been fussy for a few days. I let her drink out of my glass of water. When she did I noticed a red dot on her gums. I rubbed it a few times throughout the day. That evening I felt a little sharp edge.
To my total surprise… today I was giving her a bath. I looked at her lower gums to check out her new tooth coming up. I saw, not one tooth, but TWO coming in!!!!! Good gracious this is all happening fast!
I am excited, but sad. This is a huge milestone… but she will never give me that “gummy grin” again. I can’t wait to see her grin with a couple of teeth though!
I love making food for the Wonder Twins. It is so much easier than people think it is. It is certainly less expensive! I bought an organic sweet potato for under $2. I made as much food as I would have gotten out of 8 baby food jars.
The best part is… I know what my children are eating. There is no extra sodium… no sugars… no unknown preservatives.
It makes me feel better… and best of all… they LOVE IT!!!!
I know Halloween is a month away. However, with cute little outfits you have to wear them as much as you can. So… we are starting today.
The Wonder Twins were looking cute today. Froggy has her hair in “fraggle style” pig tails and Monkey Boy is his usual smiley self. SOOOoooooo… I thought, “What a great opportunity to get pictures of both of them!!!!! LOL I don’t know what I was thinking!
Monkey has a fascination with Frogs socks. Frog just keeps throwing a fit. Eventually, I gave up and put them down for naps. Maybe I will try again another day.
So, yesterday Ms K, Monkey Boy, Little Frog, and I were all playing on the floor. Frog was whining. So, I went to put her in bed.
When I got back into the living room, there was a poopy diaper on the floor. I could not figure out where it came from. Did Ms. K get it out of the trash? Had I changed her earlier and somehow forgotten to throw the diaper away? Had Big Dog or Puppy gotten it out of the trash? It was a mystery.
I threw it away and we played some more until Monkey and Ms K got sleepy. I picked Ms K up and realized, her diaper was missing!!!!!! The crazy thing was, she was wearing a one piece romper that had pants! How she got her diaper off and down her pant leg was the real conundrum!
My only guess is that when crawling and toddling around it had undone on one side. With all the movement it just slid down her leg.
I guess we will never truly know.
Now time has passed. They have learned how to smile, roll, giggle, etc. I amazed with each new thing they learn.
I am so very very grateful, especially to my husband, that I can stay home with them. I don’t want to miss anything!
One day Monkey Boy may fuss at me for putting up this picture. But, it is just so darn cute! I can’t help myself. He just has the cutest little tushie!
