Ahhhh! How are they two months old? The outfits in these photos were supposed to be their coming home outfits. Too bad they weighed 4 pounds and would never-ever have fit in these (they're newborn size onesies).
First The Good News: I have successfully breastfed twins for TWO WHOLE MONTHS (not exclusively...I can't make enough milk). I am seriously impressed with myself.
Next The Bad News: I don't think I will be able to breastfeed them anymore. After going back to work, I am choosing not to pump. It's just so overwhelming and stressful; I don't have a place to do it that I feel I can let down; and I don't have a recess anymore now that I'm teaching 7th graders. So it would mean only pumping at lunch and I need my own break too. I am still pumping multiple times in the middle of the night, once before I go to bed, and once right when I wake up and then of course I nurse them whenever I can (I nursed Aiden today after work and then I'll try to nurse Isabella before I pump). It's a lot of work. A lot! There are days when I really get down on myself and feel guilty. But for the most part I'm just so impressed with myself. When they were in the NICU and I was pumping every 2 hours, I felt horrendous about the whole thing. I felt like I would hardly even make it a week, let alone 8 weeks!!
Can you believe how much bigger Aiden is than Isabella? He's our little Macho Combo Burrito!
They're both still in newborn clothes and newborn diapers, but I can see Aiden moving ahead faster than Isabella (oh great...three different sizes clothes and diapers...do you sense my excitement?)!
