Stream of Consciousness

The twins had another weigh-in today...Chana is up to 6lbs 15oz and Dovid is 6lbs 10oz. Wow! Chana gained 10oz in 5 days and Dovid gained 8oz in 5 days. They had both just eaten, but really that "just eaten" label applies to them nearly 24 hours a day. lol

I'm sitting here with Dovid nestled in my lap. Thank goodness I wear skirts...I have his head on one thigh and his legs on the other, and the skirt keeps him from falling. :-) I'm soooo creative. Otherwise I would have to type this with one hand and it would take all day. He seems to be comfortable...he actually looks to be asleep. heh

My mom and I are going grocery shopping imminently...with the twins. It should be interesting! One of us will push the cart and the other will push the stroller. We don't have slings yet, and who *really* wants to be wearing a baby while walking all over the supermarket? Not me!

One of my husband's coworkers made us this gorgeous cross-stitch with twin bears and the twins names & birth date on it. I'll have to take a photo and post it here...it's absolutely gorgeous.

The last two days of Pesach are tomorrow and Thursday, so I won't be posting until at least Friday...if not Sunday. I am soooo glad it's almost over!

I frequently walked in the supermarket wearing a baby..but only one baby. I don't know how it would work with 2 babies. Do you have a double sling?

It was easier in terms of keeping my boy in a good mood, when he was younger. Once he got older, he was happy to ride in the cart. Now he loves the grocery store and likes to point at things and tell me what he wants to eat, like apples, and grapes, and rice.

Good luck at the grocery store! And to think, I always feel like grocery shopping is work and I'm alone! That sure puts it in perspective.

Grocery shopping with more than one seems impossible to me. You must need a partner.
