Aunt Jennifer to the rescue

Monday Keith went back to work and left me home alone with the boys for the first time. I survived feeding/changing and putting them both to sleep simultaneously - but was extremely happy when Jennifer arrived.

She is getting a pretty good taste of life with twins. On her first day here, we left her alone with the twins because Keith had class and I had a dentist appointment. Of course my appointment was right at their feeding time and it went late. I rushed home as quickly as I could, but when I got home she had managed to pretty much feed both of them on her own.

After a long weekend the sleep deprivation really set in for both Keith and me. I felt like a zombie and I think Keith was in bad shape too. I'm pretty sure I didn't have a complete thought for about two days. Jennifer has been a savor and has been helping us feed the boys at night, so each of us have been able to get a solid 5 hours of sleep!!! Unfortunately for us, she is leaving us on Friday. I think she will miss the boys, but will be glad to get back home and care for one 15 month old instead of two newborns.

Looks like you guys are getting a hang of it and doing it alone will only get easier... I think... :) If you ever do need any help you know all you need to do is holler across the street and I'll run on over! :)

Oh the days of sleep deprivation! I assure you, once the boys start sleeping through the night, you will feel human again! Let us know if you need any help! We'd be happy to watch the twins if you and Keith need a little alone time. Maybe a nap or something :)! Funny how "fun" changes after you have kids. They are adorable by the way!
