happy with newborns, it's true :)
When I think about them being older my first thought is how exciting it sounds for them to sleep through the night and not to be constantly feeding them all day. My next thought is that it's kinda sad that they will never be such sweet little cuddly babies again. We will never have sweet little baby Lyla and baby June again, and I know I'll miss a lot of things from this time.
This is what I love:
#1- Lyla and June are both so different. I really feel like they're equally cute, but in such different ways. They are each their own little person and the worst thought in the world is not having both of them in our lives now. In fact, my brain can't even remember what it was like before we knew them. When we called them Lyla and June while they were inside of me, yet had no idea what their little personalities were like or how they would look. Its like they've always been part of our family. They are a part of us.
#2- I love to watch their daddy gush over them. Brad can be so cute with them and it's fun to see, what a good daddy.
#3- *Sometimes* feeding them is the sweetest little bonding time for me and each of them. I'll just say that.
#4- For some reason I absolutely love the way they like their hands up by their face with their little fingers sticking up while they look around. They're already starting to grow out of the newborn hands by the eyes thing, but whenever they do it I love it, it reminds me of those first few days in the hospital with them when we were just in awe.
#5- I love when they smile, whenever they do it melts my heart. June is quite the little smiler, and Lyla has been doing it more and more. A couple weeks ago she looked right at me and gave me the biggest smile. I love that.
#6- I love when they're stretching out to wake up, especially when they go flat like a board. Oh, and when they yawn.
#7- I love when they wrap their little fingers around one of mine, I love how my thumb is the size of their palms.
#8- They make the funniest faces and the funniest noises. They are just so sweet and so adorable.
#9- I love watching them look around at the world with their big eyes and wondering whats going on in their head.
#10- It is fun how they are a magnet to posative attention and I get to just stand by the magnet and think "yup, they're mine." I'm already so proud of them even though all they can do is eat, poop, and be cute.
Being a mom is pretty awesome even right now, but I'm still looking forward to some of the joys of twins that will come in the future!
For example, their conversation at 6 weeks isn't nearly as advanced as those famous 18 month old twins, but they are starting to interact. :)
