One week down, a million left to go:). This was our first full week of me staying home by myself with the boys and my husband going to work. We had a pretty good week, considering everything that we had going on. I am very glad that it is Friday though.
The boys had good naps today, I was able to get a great night of sleep last night, and Nicholas was definitely feeling much much better today. So, all of the stars were aligned!
I have been able to spend a ton of time with them this week. I am trying very hard to do the house work when they are sleeping or just let it go. I never use the computer, watch TV or read while they are awake. They do not watch any television. I engage with them, either watching them play and commenting on what they are doing or showing me, reading to them, giving lots of hugs and kisses and rocking and playing with them, playing children's music and singing to them, etc. We have had a lot of fun.
Ben is now around 16.5 months old and Nick is now about 15 months old. We were looking at some of the pics from when we first met the boys and were amazed at how much they have already changed.
