a day in the life of us

Oh how about a glimpse into our lives... 10 glorious days in with Isla and Alice...

6ish am... breastfeed Isla or Alice
change diaper of Isla or Alice
dress Isla or Alice
20 or 30 minutes later... 
repeat for the second baby
2 hours later (if we're lucky)... repeat undressing, breastfeeding, changing, and dressing Alice and Isla
add in 3 or 4 daily pumping sessions
add in random diaper changes
add in each of us sneaking in a quick shower
add in a bath every second day for Alice and Isla
add in eating while breastfeeding when I can
add in eating prepared foods dropped off by loving friends and family
add in 5 doctors appointments since we were discharged from the hospital

repeat... repeat.... repeat... repeat... do you see the pattern?

we now live in 2-3 hour increments

but we are loving every last second of it!
