April Fool's.....

I had a little bit of fun yesterday updating my Facebook read......"we are officially c-r-a-z-y-! We are expecting again!
You wouldn't believe how many people bought it......but there were just as many people that called my bluff, ha ha. It was hilarious to read all the "OMG's" though! I love April Fool's Day. I get Chris on something every year but this year I didnt do anything to him as we are just so incredibly busy! In fact busy doesn't even really describe how life is at our house. I cant begin to tell you how much work twins and a 2.5 year old are! It's just insanely busy from the time I get up, until the time I go to bed and most days Im by myself since Chris works shift work as is a write off for the better part of 5 days, then he has 3 days off and those 3 days FLY by way too fast!! It's incredibly challenging to manage all three of them by myself but sending Brooklyn to daycare 3 days a week has been wonderful and she really enjoys it there. I'm able to focus on the twins and those days are a lot less hectic for me!
I have a new HATE for Laundry and now that the twins started solids, I have an extra 6+ bibs, 6 bowls, 6 spoons a day, 2-3 clothing changes and in addition, the twins are "pukers!". I honestly cant believe how much laundry we do in this house! I manage to get a load in the wash and then in the dryer but I don't have time to fold it all and put it away so I end up with piles and piles of clean clothes on top of the drier or in the laundry baskets just waiting to be folded. I also have a new HATE for kitchen mess! Just as soon as I clean up the kitchen, it's a disaster within a few hours. We use about 10-12 bottles/day now that the twins stopped nursing.........they quite nursing cold turkey and I found the last few weeks they were getting really distracted by all the noise in here and just couldn't focus on eating so they would latch just to de-latch seconds later because someone was crying or Brooklyn bumped him or she was yelling or singing. I was pretty sad when they weaned.....they obviously were ready to move on and Mummy was not * sniff sniff *.

Brooklyn is proving to be an AMAZING big sister!! She helps the boys when they're crying all the time. If they are in their swings waiting for a bottle and they start screaming....she runs to the living room, grabs 2 toys, runs back to the twins and gives each of them a toy.....melts my heart every single time! It is seriously adorable. She doesnt like it when they cry too hard or for too long so she will say, "Mummy, pick baby up!".

The last few weeks have been really crazy as the boys are teething (Cruz has one tooth already) and seem to be going through a "Mummy" phase where they want nothing but for me to hold them 24-7. I play a lot of "musical baby's" because as soon as I put one baby down and pick up the other one, the other baby starts crying again! Some days are insane here and I wonder how I will get up and do it again and again and again! ha ha. Im exhausted all day, everyday and you definitely get "used" to functioning on less sleep but there comes a point when you just cry. Yes, that's right, I have a good cry once in a while...not very often as I just dont have time to have the nervous break-down that I so deserve.....there are mouth's to feed, poopy diapers to change and a toddler to chase after!
