5 Things Thursday: Adjustments

Since the twins showed up, things around here have been…different.

Harder.

Better.

Louder.

But mostly just harder different.

I mean, sure, there are things I could do without (interrupted sleep, baby cries in stereo, the logistics of 5 car/booster seats in one van), but today I’m sharing 5 good things that I’m still adjusting to but which I couldn’t imagine life without anymore.

1.

The twin connection

Even though they don’t do much but sleep, eat, and make diapers, there are still things that blow my mind a little already—like the way they get hiccups or sneeze at the same time or the way they end up holding hands without even trying.

2.

Stacking

They’re so used to being on top of each other that they don’t mind being carried in a “stacked” position sometimes. In fact, if one is upset, sometimes it’s the fastest way to calm her down.

Twin sandwich, anyone?

3.

Having, not one, but three girls to watch Cinderella with

Okay, so Evy wasn’t actually that interested, but Della was enthralled (though not so much so that she forgot to hold her sister’s hand).

4.

Matching outfits

I didn’t think I’d be a fan of this one, but, I’m not going to lie—it’s pretty darn fun to get them all gussied up in their matchy-matchies. Not much cuter out there!

5.

Watching my crazy-amazing husband fall in love with, not one, but two baby girls

He’s totally smitten, y’all.

Of course, every new baby brings his or her own game-changers to the table.

I’d love to hear about the adjustments you made for your munchkins and how they still affect you today.

Like what you read? Like M is for Mama on facebook (pretty please?):
