One Day

One Day at the Shumway House O' Babies
 

We kept this chart on the babies' bottles for 4 months!  This is back when they used to eat every 2 hours (sometimes less).  Thankfully now they go 3-4 hours in between bottles.

Some times at the end of the day when I am washing all 14 bottles, I realize why I am so tired.  This taking care of 2 babies thing is really really hard.  They needs things all the time and you can't just say "Hold on I'm tired, I'll get it in a minute."  Well you can say that, but don't expect a happy response.  

Some days, the only thing that gets me through (when I have spit up in my hair and down my shirt) is their smile. Their little giggles do it too.  Oh and when they do this:
They always seem to find each other's hands.

You are an amazing Mama! We could all learn something from you.

And I adore that last picture of your sweeties. I wish I could just keep you at my house all the time so you can get shots like this one of my kids! My pictures seem to turn out... well... not so nice. :)
