Where does it go?

The babies are fourteen months old now. It has been over a month since I have posted last. I have tried to write things...but between the constant of my life, and the constant of my just doesn't happen.

I think that if I try to see this blog as merely a way to update my family, I will be able to keep up a little more.

That said, my life as the mother of one year old twins can basically be summed up to one word.


Sometimes I feel like that is the only reason they love me (kidding of course). They don't eat food yet and are surviving solely on breastmilk alone. Now, while I have enjoyed the benefits of rapid weight loss...I have also enjoyed the benefits of never sleeping. The babies nurse the whole night long. My husband is awesome, but there is nothing he can really do, because they don't want him. They want me. We have talked about night weaning, but we both know that wouldn't work because they are nursing for food, not comfort. It will be so nice when they start to eat more! We offer food a hundred times a day.

WOW, this post turned into a whine fest! (see why I haven't been posting!)


  1. Oh Mama, I feel you. When my butt hits the couch B&C come bolting. Mama on couch=boobs. Plain and simple. And then last week Claire started acting a whole lot less interested in nursing and I nearly panicked! I am not really ready for weaning but a little less boob diving is certainly welcome! Hang in there!

  2. Mine do the same thing. If they see me sitting still, they figure I just need something to do so we might as well nurse because why else would I be sitting? It does get better. Mine only nurse 4-5 times a day. C not at all at night (please no jinxes) and S maybe once a night and more and more often, he's making it until 5:30 or 6:00am. I seriously don't know what to do with myself. I've been sleeping 10 hours a night which has to be me just catching up on the last 2 years of very little sleep. You'll get here too and it will be soon...I hope! Sending sleepy thoughts your way!

  3. My 22 month old son nurses non.stop. I can't imagine having two of him.
    Many kudos to you :)
