A peaceful moment. Right now I have the twins each in a swing (thank you Alicia) sleeping sweetly, Riley's reading and the other two are taking advantage of modern technology for a moment. Brady actually slept well again last night (2 in a row) and Carson has been sleeping through for going on two weeks now! Wow. Every morning I go in to check on Carson because I just can't believe he's okay and sleeping that late (until 7 or 8 each morning).

Everyone tells me they just can't imagine having two babies at once and I usually reply that I can't either. If I think about it too much it's overwhelming, but if I just do the next thing it's okay - lots of work but lots of joy. They are so great - not fussy babies, very sweet, and becoming very interactive. Carson pretty much smiles at me if I just look at him, and "talks" to me a lot - gooing and gahing all the time. Brady smiles a lot but thinks about it first, and is starting to talk to me more. He's been quieter, but very watchful...

I set up the second crib and actually bought some family knows this is a big step for me to actually BUY what I keep going back to look at. A mixture of indecisiveness and frugality? Who knows. But I really like it - it just sort of shocked me all over again to see two cribs in the room. They've been sleeping in one so far. It's very cute. I'll put a pic on sometime but now we really need to school while the babes are sleeping.

By the way, I have to say that Alicia (the sister of a friend from church) has been a godsend. I never thought I really want two of everything - swings, bouncy seats, exersaucers, etc., but they are so helpful! (Plus she had twins a year ahead of me and knows some stuff...)

little personalities are showing
