D: I am sitting at my dining room table doing my bills online and I just came across something strangely emotional... my last hospital bill. It is not a secret that having a baby can be expensive. But having twins is definitely not the 2 for 1 kind of deal, that everyone thinks! I had more than twice the amount of prenatal doctors visits, which included ultra sounds every other week in the 3rd tri. And then, of course the bedrest for 6 weeks, with 3 of them in the hospital. The delivery required a team of at least 4 medical professionals present, and every time anyone even said 'hi' to either twin while in the hospital they seemed to charge us for it.
Needless to say, of course it was all worth it. I always tell anyone who listens that my greatest achievement was delivering my two healthy boys. Now looking back, 2.5 years ago seems like an eternity. And oddly enough tonight, while paying off my last bill I got a bit weepy about all that I went through to have the twins in our lives.
The twins are not babies any more, and are quickly growing into little boys. Time goes so fast; it's strange how you cherish those relics that remind you of the past... even a bill that comes every month.
Of course, I won't miss it that much :)

D: That line from "Good night moon" keeps going through my head every night for the past few months. Ever since the boys decided to make bed time into play time (and other times throughout the night as well some times) I've resorted to camping out in a chair in the dark for as long as it takes to get those boys to drift off to night-night land. And some times, it feels like for EVER.

So the boys were looking so cute in their goggles in the pool, we told them to "put your arms around each other" and say "cheese". They didn't quite understand what we meant, so we clarified, "put your arms around each others shoulders". Still, not really getting it. So I demonstrated by pretending to put my arm around someone's shoulder... and this is what they did.
