Figuring It Out

Today has been packed full of several things, beginning with selecting a nurse for Drake. We interviewed several good candidates and believe we have selected the best fit for our family. She will begin on Monday and spend Monday-Friday 9-5 with Drake. This will be a huge help to me because we have definitely figured out that with twins, one person is simply not enough.

Both Drake and Kennedy have had fussy moments today, and that is hard as a parent when you don't know how to make it better. We certainly spent time and energy trying to figure it out today. Whether we actually got it right or they simply wore themselves out, I do not know.

We introduced them to their play-gym today and they were mesmerized. We really enjoyed watching them be enthralled with this new toy. It's going to be fun watching them grow and explore new things.

  1. I love the pictures of these two taking in their first glimpse of the baby play-gym! I am so thankful that you will have a nurse for Drake. Thank you for sharing the progress of your two darlings. Prayers continue for steady growth and that Mr. Drake will continue to astound the doctors, as he exceeds their expectations!

  2. You're doing great! Every mom (even me as a 2nd timer) will wonder if they are doing it right... and guess, what - You Are! Of course there will be a not-so-good decision or two along the way, but we learn from those and make better ones the next time around. Just like the twins are learning and growing, you are too!

    The Lewis Family has loved keeping up with you and your family and were so happy when everyone was finally home together. Our prayers and good thoughts will still be sent your way daily.

    Love and Hugs,
    Anne (Lewis) Masterson

  3. Give yourselves more credit! You are doing great and have your hands full (are you tired of hearing thatbut yet? My friend with 4 kids including a set of twins says she hates that line lol! )

    They are so cute in awe of their new toy! Work outs just got fun :-) I will pray for the new nurse to be a blessing for all of you.

  4. We have the exact same activity center! The matching swing too :) Our daughter absolutely loved it - so much fun to watch her watch the lights, then finally reach out for one of the animals hanging...I am so happy as you continue this journey of watching your little ones "discover" thing after another after another after another!
