|10 Months Old|
Last week all 3 girls came down with colds. It was miserable. Matt was leaving for work and I had to hold back tears. One sick baby I can handle, I can cuddle and care for but 2? It is hard. Thankfully my Mother-in-Law came over to help. Poor Cassie seemed to have the worst of the cold. She slept 15 hours straight. Everyone seems to be better now but Mandy and Cassie are still pretty snotty.
I have googled "what age do twins get easier". I don't want to wish their baby hood away but I am really looking forward to them being more independent and walking. That will be fun. Once we get to 1 I think its gets easier from there.....just surviving this first year. "I think I can, I think I can...."
Another thing that is happening is separation anxiety. Ahhhhh yes. When I leave the room, then 2 babies scream in stereo sound. I will hold one baby and the other will be crying "mama". Oh, its sad and I feel bad because they just want to be held and cuddled but I only have one set of arms.
Mandy is sleeping thru the night, has 6 teeth, drinks 4 bottles a day and loves food. She is constantly grabbing Emily's hair and pulling, pulling her ear, grabbing her face and scratching her. I have to run to Emily's defense quite often. Mandy and Cassie are going to be great friends. Their interaction is already great fun to watch. Mandy will crawl after Cassie like a mad woman and they laugh and laugh together. This is only the beginning.....such fun.
Emily still isn't mobile, however she is starting to show interest in possibly wanting to move. She is still not eating finger foods and shows no interest. She isn't even a big puree food eater. She is getting up once a night still. I am trying to wean her from the bottle. She has gone a few nights sleeping all night but the past few nights have been bad. Again....I think its the separation anxiety kicking in when she wakes up.
