Today is the twins' eighth birthday. It's hard to comprehend that they have actually been in the world for 8 years. It doesn't seem like it's been that long.
I'll admit that infant twins were hard. The first 5 months were a complete blur because I got virtually no sleep and I felt like all I ever did was feed babies. (I never got the hang of nursing both at the same time, and one was a slow nurser, so about the time I was done with one, it was time to feed the other.)
But once they started sleeping and eating less frequently, life was great and they were (and still are) so much fun!
DH took the day off and we are taking them to the waterpark to celebrate. Right now they are all out getting donuts--and it is raining! Hopefully it is an isolated even that will pass quickly, because it was not supposed to rain today.
