Our Twin Boys

Of Happy Hours and the Boys

Posted on: February 13, 2012

In the last 2 weekends we have been to 2 parties/happy hours with the boys. Last week it was the super bowl party for which we managed to stay only till half time, since the boys had their bedtime at 8. I had a nice time at the Superbowl party, the boys had at least 3 other babies who were the exact same age as them, EXCEPT they would not sit and play with them!!! R and me had to hold each of them the whole time, since they wouldn’t even stay with anyone else without beginning to cry. I guess they are going through a needy phase…but this is really hard for me and my back. On Saturday we had a friend’s birthday where we carried them in our carriers since it would get really hard otherwise. That seemed much better since they were close to us and did not feel insecure.

One of the biggest challenges of having multiple babies is going out. You have to get 2 of them ready and the many things that are needed to get them outside, like the diaper bag, food, jackets, pacifiers, bottles… etc. etc. Especially with Adi and Aru being so clingy and needy, i don’t get to really enjoy the party as much. I don’t get to talk to people as much, eat  or drink, or stay a little longer!  I am hoping the 2 of them get over this phase quickly and i can start enjoying our outings a little more! I am not sure if daycare will help in this, but I am hoping that they see other babies, and other people more often as compared to now and become more social. R and me love going out and travelling, but we are still learning and figuring out things in that area with the boys.

But its not all bad. Yesterday our dear friends visited from PA and the boys loved them so much. They played and laughed with them, and we all had such a good time! Also, yesterday Adi did not cry in the car seat!! He actually enjoyed his outing to TJ’s a lot in spite of the bitter cold.

Our next biggest goal is going out of town with the boys and staying at another house overnight. That should be very interesting!
