Who ever thought of the CIO method obviously didn't have twins. Do they not understand if you let one cry it automatically wakes up the other baby and now you have to deal with TWO screaming babies. Yeah, not dealing with that. Don't get me wrong I am not completely against it. I do the CIO method when it's K's time to nap. They don't have their nap in the same room. One will sleep in the play pen that's set up in our room and the other in their crib. I keep telling myself that it will get easier, please let it get easier!

6 months

 WOW, just realized it has been a very long time since I had posted anything. The babies are 6 months now. So much has happened since the last post, squeakers sleeps through the night. She has been for over a month now. Tooters on the other hand, does not. He's a hungry boy!! They go to bed anywhere between 8:30-9:30pm. Tooters gets up anywhere between 2-4am to eat. I am so exhausted when he gets up to eat I usually end up bringing him in our bed, where he sleeps like a champ after he's done.
 The two of them are sitting up on their own now, squeakers is still a little unsteady but doing great. Tooters can sit by himself for quite some time before he falls over.

   They are eating solids now, I started them when they were 5 months old. First with rice cereal then added vegetables. So far so good! They seem to like everything that we fed them. I did end up changing their cereal to oatmeal in hopes of K sleeping longer through the night. Honestly I was hoping he would sleep through the night but it didn't work. Really I can't complain, getting up once is pretty good.
 Well, I must sign off, for some reason house work doesn't do it self around here :(

Photo session

Good Monday Morning,

  We got the babies pictures done. LOVE THEM!! I had posted on a site on facebook and Michelle private messaged me asking if she can take my babies pictures. She need twins for her portfolio. I'll be honest I thought it was a little weird that someone was offering to take their pictures....and for free!! I did some research to check her out to see if she was legit, and she was :) And I am so happy that we got their pictures done. They turned out beautifully!
I would definitely recommend Michelle for doing any pictures you want done. She has the patients of a saint!  Of course my babies were fussy when I got to her house, I don't know why, they were fed just before we got there and they were napping. They must have known what was going on, little buggers!

If you want pictures professionally done go and see Michelle of GOSNAY STUDIOS.
She is located at 432 Highway #8, Stoney Creek Ontario.
Grand opening in July 13th

You won't be disappointed!

Long Weekend

 It's Victoria long weekend, we didn't do too much. Shane worked Friday and Saturday. Sunday on the other hand was busy. I had double booked ourselves. We were invited to mom and Ollie's trailer and to Dustyn's birthday party.

   So what would any parent to with seven week old twins do, do both of course!

  We had a great time at mom and Ollie's trailer, so jealous, I want our own trailer. I had full intentions of leaving the house by 10am, the babies on the other hand had something else in mind. They wanted to eat when we were suppose to leave. So I had everything pretty much packed up just needed some babies. So I figured they would just have a "snack" since they ate about 45 minutes before. NOPE! 50 minutes later were just leaving the house. I am so happy that it's only a 1/2 hour drive to their trailer.

So I think this is going to be our home away from home, I hope the parents don't mind ;)

Happy Birthday

 Well where do I start..... I could start from the very beginning but I won't, because honestly I will probably give up half way through blogging and will never post it. So I will start on the day tooters and squeakers was born :)

  It was Easter Sunday and Shane and I were up at my brother's and SIL's house for dinner. After dinner the four of us were talking about when I would have the babies because I had a scheduled c-section for April 9th. Jamie (SIL) said wouldn't it be funny if you went into labour tonight because your mom picked April 1st? I laughed and said I probably wouldn't, I don't feel "different". Went home later on that evening and went to bed around midnight. Around 1am I got up with a "tummy ache", I honestly thought that if I can just go to the bathroom my "tummy ache" would go away. So I did my business and went back to bed, about 15-20 minutes later I was up again and still had my "tummy ache" but it was a little worse. Not cluing in at all that it could be labour. So back to the bathroom I went still thinking that if I can just "go" that I would feel better. All of a sudden I got a really sharp pain in my stomach and the lights went on in my head and I thought "dammit I think this is labour, of course it would happen in the middle of the night!" 
  So now panic has started to sink in and I have to get Shane up. So from our bathroom, which is just outside of our bedroom, to Shane's side of the bed I had four strong contractions OY!! When I finally managed to get to Shane's side of the bed to wake him up I had a contraction that made me double over. I had managed to say Shane's name and he shot up in bed like a lightning bolt, which is funny because it takes a lot to wake him up. "Are you ok?" he asks, I had managed to spit out "I think I'm in labour" while I started to bawl my eyes out. He jumps out of bed and asks if he can turn the lights on, I'm like, are you kidding me? Your asking to turn the lights on? YES, I managed to scream out. I told him he had to call McMaster because I don't think I can talk to anyone right now, this hurts!! It's around 2am or just after at this point. Shane is on the phone with the hospital pacing the floors like a mad man and I am hunched over on the dishwasher in excruciating pain. The nurse on the phone wants to talk to me- so much for not wanting to talk on the phone. After asking me a couple of questions she told me to come to the hospital so they can assess me. On my way to the van I called mom, I had a feeling they weren't going to send me home and really who doesn't want their "mommy" when they are feeling like they are dying? Mom asked me if we were timing the contractions, "nope" was all I could get out. So she started timing them for me. They were four minutes apart while we were leaving the house. HOLY CRAP!! Mom was my god sent, she stayed on the phone with me while we were on our way to the hospital and had to keep reminding me to breath. At one point mom asked me where we were and I told her just passing Hess Village, why? She said your contractions are two minutes apart, you might want to drive a little faster. TWO MINUTES,  HOLY SH&T!!! At this time we were already going 70 km, I turned to Shane and said "my contractions are two minutes apart", he went through red lights after that.
  So we made it to the hospital and at this point I can't even walk. We found a wheelchair just as we got off the elevator. We got to labour and delivery and you have to pick up a phone and explain to them why your there. I could barely get any words out by then but I managed to say my name. They set me up in a room and three nurses come in. One at my left arm putting and IV in, one on my right drawing blood and one with her hand up my who ha seeing if I had dilated at all. I wasn't really paying attention to any of them as I was in so much pain but Shane told me later on that he knew it was the real deal when he saw the nurses face after checking me. I was 8cm dilated,it was between 2:30-2:45am at this point, the nurse that was on my left bent down to my ear and said "hun you are  having your babies tonight". Tooters was born at 3:19am and squeakers was born at 3:21am. They are the loves of my life!!
