Life with three at home.

I'm so thankful to be at home together, the five of us. Not that there aren't challenges to being at home (like when they are all three crying/need something at once and nights with little sleep), but I'm glad we're in this together and that we have such a supportive and helpful family. The phrase, "It takes a village" is true, and I'm discovering that even more as we now have three! I don't like accepting or asking for help, because I would love to be super woman and do it all, but having twins is definitely a humbling experience in letting people love on us, and that they have done. I've been blown away by the love, support, encouragement, help, food, etc. that we've received from our family and friends. We are grateful to be well taken care of!

Big sister Norah was very eager to help with their first baths at home! She is the best sister. She really loves them. She's very high on the love, and working on teaching gentleness. She's never trying to hurt them, but we've had to talk about not picking them up by herself and other things like that. 


Ellory.



Lucy.


Norah was so willing to help that her pants were getting soaked, so off they came. Thanks for taking one for the team, Norah.





Just like it's hard to get toddlers to take a great photo, it's also hard to get awake newborns to take a good one too. Ha. But they're super cute nonetheless.



And matching outfits are pretty cute too.



Sleeping beauties. (Also, these Boppy Newborn Loungers are great. We debated about getting them because we had swings/other chairs, but another twin mom recommended them and I'm so glad we got them. They are used a ton.)


Heading outside for their first stroller walk! (We ended up getting the Baby Jogger City Select stroller with the glider board for Norah, and so far we've been happy with it! For a little bit the front wheels were locked and it wouldn't turn, which I was disappointed in, but then we figured that out and unlocked them and now it's amazing. Silly us. We didn't want to get a triple stroller because they are huge and expensive, and Norah often likes to walk herself now, and I still think that was a good decision. The glider board is nice for shorter distances, but I wouldn't rely on that for her for long stretches. Thankfully, we still have our other stroller, so when we do bigger outings, Kley is usually with us anyways and then we can just take both if needed.)



There's a little snippet into life at home so far!
