Four months old today!
We had a pretty good day today. The weather was nicer, so we went out for a walk in the morning before a friend of mine came to visit. She visited from about 10:30 to 1:30, which was the most difficult time with the babies, and I was so grateful for her help! Then from about 1:30 to 4 we worked on nap time. It was a lot of back and forth, with one baby up, then back down, then the other baby up and then back down... It was not both of them napping for a solid period, so I wasn't able to nap, do any work, or pump. But I still appreciated the relative quiet.
In the evening, I cooked dinner with Benjamin in the Moby wrap, and Asher in the kitchen in his high chair. I try to explain a lot of what I am doing as I go, and I told them that they'll be cooking as soon as they can walk! While I was cooking, Eric had a video chat with his parents so they saw the boys and Benjamin gave a few of his beautiful smiles. We had a nice dinner all four of us (somewhat interrupted for me by breastfeeding Asher), and then went for a walk in the pleasant weather. While we were walking, I commented to Eric how few people we saw on the streets given how nice an evening it was. Right after saying that, we looked up a side street and saw a woman with a twin stroller! So we changed direction and went to meet her.
Eric also got me a gift of the Wii Fit today. This is good, since it is clear to me that I will not have time to go to the gym for a while, and I don't want to pay a sitter to be here while I exercise. I hope I like it. I just got on it and it told me I am overweight, so I guess I have my work cut out for me!
