Finally I Am Enjoying My Twins

not that I have not loved and adored them all these months, but we are finally establishing our routines and they are going for more content and playful periods. It is nice to have the breathing room!

Finding New Fun with Solids

With my daughter, I thought everything I fed her had to be packaged with something saying the word "baby" on it to know that it was safe. With the boys I am much more free-wheeling and having a lot of fun. My pediatrician gave the green light for foods and sanctioned everything except for honey and encouraging liberal uses of solids to assist with gaining weight.

Feeding twins is so fun! While waiting for one to work on his spoonful, I find the other quite ready to take a nibble, so feedings are fast and furious. The menu started simple with bananas, avocado and sweet potato. Now I puree all the foods we eat and they had some corned beef and cabbage for St. Patty's Day and last night ate spaghetti squash with marinara sauce. I am freezing little ice-cube batches of all the purees I make and just love knowing I am feeding them delicious foods that I make and not just relying on the little jars this go round.
