Our crazy lives with a two year old and newborn twins...we wouldn't change it for the world!

Wow I am realizing that I have almost zero free time to post blog updates!! Lol, I guess I was somewhat expecting to be busy but it can be hard to find time to take a shower and that's with Brian still home! He is such a huge help! I am nursing the twins so that is taking up most of my time right now. They are eating for about 20-30 minutes then I have to burp both, we usually cuddle for a few minutes (I love how relaxed they are after they eat), change both diapers, occasionally change an outfit, etc. All in all it takes about and hour and a half for the whole feeding routine so then I have another hour and a half to pick up the living room, play with or feed Tori, do laundry, feed myself, drink a rediculous amount of water so I can continue to nurse, go to the bathroom, do dishes, pump some extra milk to freeze, and on and on. Then it all starts over again! It will continue to get easier, especially as the twins get better at nursing. The first week was very difficult, but after a few Dr visits and phone calls to the lactation nurse line I think we have it pretty well figured out. I even have a nice stash of milk in the freezer.
So please don't get upset at me if you don't see posts as often as I did with Tori. One baby was a whole other ball game :)
I met my husband at the ripe age of 16, we were dating before my 17th birthday, engaged at 18, and we were married at 23. He is the best man I have ever met and I am so blessed to be with him. He moved to St Louis with me while I finished college, then we moved back to our hometown in Central Illinois and started our family. We were blessed with our daughter July 21st 2009 and our boy/girl twins February 2012.
Our two and a half year old is our little princess and lover of all things girly, from shoes to make-up to dresses. Such a funny kid who's favorite saying is "snif snif, I smell pumas!." She loves to hide from dragons and run from pretend spiders. She keeps us on our toes all day long until our favorite time of day: hugs and cuddles at bedtime.
His is our little trooper. He rarely cries and is such a sweetheart. When he is awake he just stares at you with his big dark blue eyes.
She is our baby girl and she knows it! She is her big sister all over again! We can't wait to see how much she will end up looking like Tori (she looks just like her as a newborn). She's a little dramatic, but we wouldn't expect anything less from a Davis girl.
