My time for two-handed typing is ... extremely limited. (Which is also why I haven't been commenting much on anyone else's blogs ... although you probably haven't noticed. :) ) Naptime doesn't really exist around here. I mean, it exists for the little people but not for Mama, because no one really naps at the same time (and the babes not for very long, although yesterday Dominic napped for an hour and a half in his crib which was amazing).
Bedtime ... oh bedtime. Dominic is a champ. He goes down easily at 7:45 and sleeps until 2 or even 4am, sometimes with a waking at 11-12 that is easily resolved. Gregory ... is awful. It started with the reflux, which is much better now that I've made some changes in my diet but still pretty bad most evenings. (I even switched to decaf coffee. That is love, people. Or else just desperation.) But now it's really just a matter of him expecting to sleep in someone's arms, or with full body contact. The minute his little body touches a mattress (ours or his crib's) it is screaming time.
Ah well. I keep telling myself that nighttime can't still be this bad in another month ... or at least two months ... right?
When they do catnap it is never together but actually, I am okay with that. It gives me a chance for some one-on-one time ... and for Michael to interact with whichever one is awake. (Also? One toddler + one baby is SO EASY. :) )
Anyway! Here is what I would like to be blogging about if/when I have the time--mostly for my own benefit so I don't forget about them:
1. EASTER! Christ is risen! Indeed He is risen!
2. Michael's birthday. (It was a day filled with orange. And I have graduated from being a mom of three-under-two to three-under-three!)
3. Managing sleep with twins, breastfeeding twins ... a day in the life with twins ...? Would this be horribly boring?
4. Various projects around the house that are underway or at least germinating.
5. Patience and suffering as communion with others and some other things ... not really as profound as it sounds but so helpful to me as I am learning about it.
In the meantime, I actually finished this book for Lent! It was wonderful and very rich and I will probably be returning to it again in the coming years.
And just as I finished, this came in the mail on Holy Thursday.
I think that this shall be perfect reading for the Easter season. Doesn't even look like an Easter book? I am very excited.
Well, I have spent the spare moments I would usually spend showering and getting dressed in typing this ... so until next time! :)
