What's been going on...

Things have been crazy to say the least, so I will try to catch up quickly with bullet points.  I can't believe it has been 2 weeks since I last posted and we are already in the middle of May.

So, recently I've been working the night shift, which means that I get to hang out with the babies in the morning, but I miss putting them to bed at night.  CJ is doing a fantastic job, but it's hard not kissing the babies good night and putting them to bed or hanging out with CJ in the evenings.  I'm on nights this week and then evenings again the week after labor day and then it's back to days!!

We left the babies with my in-laws last weekend so that we could go to Atlanta and try to find a house for next year.  We were unsuccessful so far on the housing front, but we did stay in a 5-start hotel and really enjoy our one-on-one adult time aka sleeping in until 9am in the hotel!!  I actually spent my first mothers day sans babies looking for houses in Atlanta.  Come to think of it...I didn't even get a mother's day gift from "the babies."  I guess that's what I get for ditching them for the weekend.

Just when we think that we have the babies figured out and we are getting more sleep, they throw us for a wrench.  This time, it was in the form of a very high fever 104+ for baby girl starting on Sunday through Wednesday with 2 trips to the pediatrician, lots of Tylenol, urine and blood cultures, lots and lots of tears, and very little sleep as well as very high fever 104+ for baby boy starting on Wednesday through today with lots of fussiness.  Baby girl went back to day care today and was feeling better, but baby boy still has the fever.  We are doing our best to keep them happy and hydrated, but I sure hope that they are healthy and sleeping again soon!!  I kind of broke down last night because I've been working crazy long hours and then I'm not getting much sleep and the babies are so sick and I just want to heal them or at least make them feel better.  Thankfully, today was a better day, but man, sick twins is rough!!

Alright that's all.  Only another 11.5 hours until my shift ends and I can go home to hubby and the babies!!

What fun plans do you have for the weekend?!?



  1. Oh no!! I am so sorry about the babies being sick. I am sure that has been stressful! I hope these couple weeks go by fast so you can get back to days!! Not much planned here for the weekend. Being lazy and cooking these baby girls!

  2. Oh jeez, 104+??? That is so scary! And BOTH of them had it?? That alone has got to make you a nervous wreck, not to mention your crazy schedule. I hope things start to slow down for you soon!

  3. Are you coming back another weekend to look?
