ya gotta have friends ...

Hi everyone. Sorry I haven't updated in a while. Not like I have much going on over here ... haha

Anyway, the twins are doing great. Still not sleeping through the night, but they are usually only waking us once, so I can't complain.

I'm getting a bit antsy over here. Not that I want to rush this time with them, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't looking forward to going back to work. I miss the normalcy of getting up every day and going to a place with only adults where no one throws up on me and I don't have to clean anyone's diapers. At least that hasn't happened yet at work ... 8-)

I've been trying to get out more and do things with the kids just so I can get out of the house. Thank god for my friend Michele being home because we seem to talk on the phone all day long just to pass the time. We did make a visit over to her place last week to introduce the twins to her new son Michael, who is 5 weeks younger than the twins. He has the most amazing hair ever witnessed on a newborn!

And a few of my collegues from work came to see the babies, which was wonderful! It's so nice to have adults come see me during the day!

The twins also got a visit from their triplet cousins, which was fun! They live all of about 2 minutes away from us, so we will be visiting with them a lot this summer while I am home. Their backyard is like a playground/waterpark, so mommy will be hanging out their a lot! Thanks Christina! And the triplets mom (Christina) will be the one watching my kids when I finally go back to work. She's an AMAZING mom and I know I will be able to trust her implicitly with my kids. Plus, the triplets are amazingly well behaved and good kids, so I know she will whip mine it's shape! haha ... Another exciting fact is that the twins were born on the triplets birthday, and were delivered by the same doctor! Go figure! So April 5th will be a very busy day around these parts!

Lastly, I would like to mention that Father's Day was Sunday, and there isn't enough I can do to talk about what a wonderful husband I have! Having twins is hard work, and I can't imagine how much harder it would have been if I didn't have a husband who was truly committed and involved. Twice a week Eric lets me sleep all night and he takes the overnight shifts, even though he has to get up and work. He's constantly giving me a break and taking care of both kids so I can just have some me time. I couldn't ask for a better partner or father, and I know just how lucky I am to have him. And the best thing about it is that he doesn't think he's doing anything special. He just wants to be the best father he can be. And he is. Love you, babe.

Thank you so much for the support on my blog! I can use every bit of insight I can get... You're twins are just adorable! And I like reading that they're only waking once a night at 2 months of age. How amazing (and neat) that your twins and triplets all share the same birthday. I'm sure I'll be stoping in often to read about how you're all doing and to ask a million questions.
