Pinks attempt at a counterattack

It seems yesterday my wife starting taking desperate measures to ensure pinks victory. When I noticed this I was shocked and appalled at what she had done. She recently acquired a halo sleep wrap and has wrapped up the girls in it, imitating a straight jacket. She then declared this is due to Bronwyn's refusal to wear pink.

Poor Bronwyn tied up in her straight jacket:

Extreme Baby Feeding

I thought I would start a short series on some of the more extreme methods we have undertaken when feeding the twins.

The first exhibit would be my sister who is attempting to feed both of the twins. Rather than use both hands, one was occupied with her camera, she used one hand and one foot.

Blue strikes back, if that is needed

I am somewhat mystified by my wife's recent post on how pink was striking out at blue by Aeralind spitting up on something non-pink. The reason is that the babies currently can not differentiate between colors therefore she has is trying to make a moot point, but I digress. While her post was a straw mans argument today we achieved a total victory for team blue. When I went to feed the twins I discovered that the twins were wearing matching outfits that were white with little giraffes on them. To further the cause for team blue they were sporting a classy pair of BLUE bum-genius diapers.

The pink quilt was to appease my wife.

To further aid team blue this picture was taken yesterday after putting them both in a pink outfit. I think their reaction says enough.

A Set-Back for Team Blue

Last night Aeralind took rather drastic biochemical measures to let her daddy know what she thought of being wrapped in a green blanket.

After a blanket and an outfit change (lavender wasn't good enough either), Aeralind seemed extremely pleased with herself wearing this new and adorable gown.

Well, at least Derek can hold out hope that Bronwyn might stay on his side for a little while longer.

The first month part 2

I thought in honor of the twins 1 month birthday that I would write down some of the more interesting things that have happened in our household with twin girls.

At 2:30 in the morning while feeding one of the girls I looked at my wife and said: "Honey, I am going to mow the carpet tomorrow." Not to be outdown she replied: "Honey, Why did the ocean randomly turn on?"

One evening she said to me: "I am the coolest mom in the world, I can turn on the ocean with my foot." Referring to my clock radio that can play ocean sounds, and jungle sounds to, that we use at night for the girls.

I absolutely love watching them snuggle up close to each other when they sleep. They do it many times without provocation. It is like they instinctively know their sister is close by.

Being told by my wife that Aeralind is a trip hazard when she descends the stairs so I need to lower her via a bucket.

I asked my wife one night what she is feeding them since our 4wk preemie girls are growing quickly. She quickly answered that she is feeding them Miracle Grow, Radiator fluid, and a side of cow growth hormone.

A tale of sleepless nights and insightful comments

Today being the 1 month birthday of the twins I thought that over the next few days I would share some of the more interesting comments my wife and I have shared with each other at some obscene hour of the day.

One of the first to befall us was the following incident that has occurred over many evenings:
We have both been plauged by invisible baby syndrome. I have apparently both burped a baby and protected one in my sleep. While she has many times told me she fed the non-existent baby in the bed. (For the record we do not sleep with the twins.) She has also asked me to pickup the baby she had with her in the bed despite their not being one there.

Apparently they are also going into a rebellious stage as Aeralind has been sporting a mowhawk since birth. Not to be outdone by her sister Bronwyn has grown a mullet.

We have gone to the birds

It seems Bronwyn is wanting to follow in her dad's footsteps and go birdwatching. Guess Blue is getting somewhere with them. :)
