Now that the babies are eating real food, I'll be sharing some of our favorite things to eat. I'm going to start with the twins' favorite food. We started introducing solid foods a few weeks ago so they haven't had too many choices yet but the current front runner is butternut squash!

Twin Pregnancy Must-Haves

I have only ever been pregnant with twins so I can't really compare my twin pregnancy to a singleton pregnancy. I didn't have a terribly difficult pregnancy in terms of complications but it sure wasn't easy to be pregnant with two babies! These are some of the things that got me through my twin pregnancy. I know a lot of them are general pregnancy items but some are specific to twin mamas!

WWRM: No Two Alike

This week's WWRM is No Two Alike by Keith Baker. My brother bought this for my dad for Christmas because he loves birds and reading with the babies. It turns out it's a perfect book for twins!

Our twins were born on Saturday night and we had been at the hospital since Thursday. After my delivery in the OR, we spent a short time back in Labor and Delivery and were soon moved to Maternity. I was feeling better than I expected but was still coming off my epidural and couldn't walk well. I was, however, starving because I hadn't had a real meal since lunch the day before. We ordered food from a restaurant down the street and I had the best eggplant parm sandwich of my life!

As a librarian in my work life, I love, love, love books! I love reading with the babies and hope that they will grow up to treasure books and reading as much as I do. What We're Reading Mondays will be a chance for me to share what we are reading.

As I mentioned in our last post, it was quite a surprise to find out at 12 weeks we were expecting twins! I was fortunate enough to have a pretty uneventful pregnancy. I was nauseous and sick weeks 6-11 and I was pretty tired all throughout. Every morning before going to work, I’d be sick and wonder how I would be able to teach children all day. I ate pretzels nonstop during the day and took power naps in my office during lunch!

My husband, Ben, and I found out just before Christmas 2014 that I was pregnant. We were thrilled! We hadn’t been actively trying to get pregnant but we also weren’t not trying. We were very excited to tell our families over the holidays.
