Grandma is here! Now its time to relax

My mom made it after a small hurricane and snow storm in NY delayed her a bit. As you can see below, the girls have been so happy to meet her. Grandma has been a big help so far watching and playing with the girls.

A random picture of kogu because she was jealous of all the pictures being posted about the girls – she used to be the cute baby in the house 🙂

Back to vivo city for another shopping experience, this time with grandma. They already setup the huge christmas tree outside and started playing jingle bells throughout the mall. The Coffee Bean started serving a “Double Chocolate Peppermint Shake” that is just so good, but gives me brain freeze everytime I have one.

The girls getting ready to have lunch at Marche, the swiss place in Singapore. This restaurant uses only fresh ingredients and cooks everything right in front of you, you can choose from so many dishes.

Kristin and her favorite ball, its cool to see that she can reach out and grab it now.

Until next time

 

No Sleep – Day 2

Actually, its not as bad as everyone seems to make it out. One thing is for certain, those with a singleton baby have it easy. You can trade with your wife, the 4am feed for a new pair of shoes, or swap days/times so you can both still sleep – not true with twins. Alsohaving them next to each other has the added bonus of one cranky baby waking the other. 

After extensive research and lot’s of purchases, we found that Kristin just doesn’t like the NUK brand of bottles and nipples, and prefers the more “plain style” Pigeon brand. It cut my feeding down from 45-60 minutes to just under 30 mins. That’s 15 more minutes every 3 hours! If I save it all up, I have enough time to watch a movie.

 

The dogs are coping really well. Inu doesn’t seem to care at all, almost like he didn’t realize there are 2 more people in the house and that I am up all night. Koguma is a bit more curious, she wants to get close, but my evil stare keeps her (mostly) at bay. As the girls get a little bigger, I will slowly allow the dogs closer. Thatlevel of trust is going to take a while, the dogs have never been around tiny babies.

Both girls love the bath, and since that’s my job, I’m happy. Today was their second bath at home, and we decided to dress them up and take a ton of pictures afterwards – BIG MISTAKE! They must have gotten over-excited because it took us the next 3 hours to get them to sleep, just in time for their next feeding. I am sure they will hate us for the naked ones 😛
