Day 2 with the babies! Now I didn't have them both together like I originally thought, but I got 2 hours with each of them today while their moms went out. I took Kyan for a walk in the Baby Bjorn, which I liked very much. And then after a bit of struggle, I managed to put him down for a nap, and that was it! Then I went to Hugo's house, and I must say, he is getting quite mobile. He rolls all over the floor, and can get from one side of the room to the other. He also seems to want to get into everything he is not supposed to (his dad's stereo, my camera bag, mom's purse, etc...) so I have to keep a close eye on him at all times. And I tried to give him a bottle, but that little boy is just so busy that he doesn't want to stop playing to drink it! He would start drinking it, then something would catch his eye and he would lunge for it, getting milk everywhere! I think he drank half the bottle, and his mom considered that a success. :) But we had fun, and of course the two boys are on opposite schedules (one goes down for a nap at 10:30 whereas the other one is waking up at 10:30, etc...) so I will definitely be worn out by the end of a day with these two!
Now all this time with the babies is making me really realize how much work having a baby is. I mean, they constantly need to be fed, burped, entertained, diaper changed, and when you aren't doing those things, you are cleaning up after those things... And once these babies start really crawling, they will be into everything! Little things left laying around the house become potentially dangerous, things that are "hidden" are not safe unless locked away, baby's aren't content to just lay there and hang out like they did before they were mobile. Being a parent has got to be absolutely exhausting! Worth it I'm sure, but exhausting nonetheless.
