Taylor and Bryon are doing good. They have adjusted to their new house and I believe they are loving it. We moved into a new time zone and the babies quickly adjusted to the time change as well.
Bryon is pulling up to a standing position, cruising on the couch and stealing toys from his sister. He also knows how to sign milk and more. Taylor is just learning to pull to a standing position. She crawls all over the place and shows her anger when Bryon takes her toys!
In this picture they actually are playing peacefully! Bryon hates to wear socks too. That is why he only has one sock on!
Tay likes to climb into the bouncy seat. She knew she was busted so that explains the big grin.
This is Bryon just being cute!
So we are getting ready for Christmas. We have a tree up. We will travel back home for Christmas to see our family. Then after Christmas we will be celebrating their birthdays!!! Where does time go?

On this particular day I had to run to the grocery store. I couldn't wait for my husband to get home. So I loaded the babies up and went. When leaving the store, a lady sees Tay in the top of the bascart and says oh she cute. Then she notices there is another baby, Bryon in the basket part. She looks at me and says "How do you do it?" I simply say its my life...I have no choice.
This is my life. A mother of two wonderful children. Just like any new mother I had to adapt and had to adapt quickly. I don't let the fact that I have 2 babies slow me down. I just think that my motherly instinct kicked in and I have adjusted my life accordingly. I will admit it is hard but it is worth every minute.
As I sit here holding Bryon as I type, I can remember being scared and confused at one time. But those days are over. This is my life and I embrace it.

I have 2 more weeks of work then I am off indefinetly. I have been laid off. The district I work for had a failed levy and they are doing cuts. So I got cut. I am searching for a new job and hope to be working in the fall.
Also in two weeks I will be having gall bladder surgery. Since having the twins I have been having issues with my gall bladder and having gall stones. I will get my gall bladder removed in two weeks.
By the way...my mother is great. She watches the babies one day a week. And she loves it!

The first day back to work was hard. For a few weeks the babies are still home with my husband. So when I get up for work, which is 5 am, I don't disturb them. They are sleeping through the night and will sleep till 7-8 am. So it is hard every morning waking up and not spending time with my babies before work. When my husband returns to work, he will be in charge of waking them and taking them to my aunts. I will pick them up in the afternoons.
The best part of my day is when I come home. The babies are so excited to see me as well as me. I am still breastfeeding them so when I get home we get to spend some bonding time. Then I keep moving. Cook dinner, do laundry or what ever I can get accomplished. I still don't see how women can do it all.
I am taking a little time for myself and going to water aerobics twice a week. That is nice to get out and exercise. I got to get this fat tummy in shape!!! I don't know why because it was never in shape anyway! HA!
Hopefully soon I will post a few pictures. I have pictures to post. I just haven't had the time to do it. I have less time now than I did when I was home with them. Hopefully I will do a video update soon as well. Until then....

Its funny. I wake up around 2 because I know its time for a feeding but I hear no cries. My husband will wake up around 3 asking if they are up. Still no cries. We just lay there thinking why sleep they will be up shortly. Well we both doze off. Next thing you know it is 6 am and we are hearing the first signs of a cry. Well at least the first loud cries. So yesterday they slept till 6ish and today 7ish. They go to bed around 10:30 each night. So I am hoping that this pattern continues.
I just recently purchased a mobile for their crib. I did not have one initially because I didn't really realize the function of a mobile. I thought it was just something cute to have on the crib. Well I noticed how much they both enjoy the mobile on their swing so I got one for the bed. I purchased Fisher Price - Smart Response Musical Mobile. I need to add this to my Top Ten list! But this mobile is nice. I turn it on when I put them down at night and it plays for a few minutes and then shuts off. Then if one of them cries it turns back on. So I don't know if the babies are waking at night and the mobile helps soothes them back to sleep. I don't know why they are sleeping at night but I tell you this...Mommy and Daddy are loving the extra sleep!

Both Taylor and Bryon are doing well. At the last doctor appointment Bryon weight 8 lbs 2 oz and Taylor was 8 lbs and 1 oz. Bryon is 23 inches and she is 22 inches. So both babies are doing well.
I am breastfeeding both babies. There are times I want to give up but I realize how important breast milk is for my babies. I do have to supplement with formula. Initially I was not happy about that but I realized for my babies to thrive they needed the formula. I just was not producing enough milk.
I am still off work until April 12. I don't know how I will go back to work. I know now I don't want to leave my babies. But I know they will be in good hands. Luckily for me and my DH we have family who will provide daycare for our babies. I feel comfortable knowing that my aunt will care for our children while we are at work. I feel so blessed to have family support. With out the family support we would be lost.
I will include a few pictures of the babies so you can see how well they are doing.
