Forty Weeks

Today would be the day our surrogate would be at forty weeks. The doctors would never have let her go that long, but it is interesting to think about. I definitely would have pulled my hair out waiting for today. I can't remember what life was like without children. I know that sounds crazy since it has only been a few weeks, but it is how I truly feel.

Last night the lack of sleep and double melt down at three am was my test. It was the twins opportunity to complain about everything. We are hungry, you are too slow, our formula is getting cold, we are wet, we don't want you to change our diapers, we are cold, we are hot, give us pacifiers, we don't want that pacifier, Cedric wants to lay on his stomach, Ezra wants to be swaddled, we need to burp, you are doing it all wrong. You get the picture.

I gave it my three am best, and the babies are not holding a grudge today.

I only have two arms. Twins: 1 Papa: 0.



  1. Eventually your score card will be even. 3am is a witching hour and true test of who will bow.... been there done that. You're all doing great! Love Love Love.

  2. Ha - r&b love the 3AM trials! They kicked my butt last night too:).

  3. Love it! - remember you are now their slave!. Enjoy!

  4. Although the lack of sleep turns you into a zombie it's so worth it, just think when they are teenagers you wont be able to get them out of bed in the morning!!! Lol

  5. Hang in there! We're glad to help some tonight when we come over! I'm sure you're doing a fantastic job!

  6. We are so excited for you guys! Hang in'll figure out a routine soon enough and be able to juggle their needs without even thinking about it.
