I love being a Mom. It's the best job on the planet, even on it's worst days. Ever. I love that I have three kids. One darling boy and two little girls. The schedule is crazy. Two babies at once is hard. Not all the time hard. Having two babies at once has proved to be especially hard when we have doctor appointments, dropping Hugo off at preschool, grocery shopping attending church or any other activity involving leaving the house with all the children mid winter. The dinner hour is by far the worst time of day, the witching hour. It's very hard on me when they cry at the same time. Sometimes I'm not sure if I'm coming or going.

Hugo has been amazingly patient with me. He's getting the short end of the stick in the attention department from me. He loves the girls, his sisters. Hugo is awesome about helping out with finding shooshas lost behind the girls ears while in their bouncy chairs and bringing burp cloths, TV clickers, Kleenex and my water glass to me as I sit frozen on the couch nursing. He cuddles with us in bed in the mornings. He is still full of kisses for me, especially butterfly ones. We've been talking a lot about his own baby days. Takes it all in stride our Hugo does.

These shots, with the girls arms linked, give me hope that our girls are going to be the best of friends throughout their lives. They are fraternal twins and do look so very different. I can see Hugo in both Marlo and Sabine, but more so in Marlo's face. Marlo's body seems to be much more stocky compared to Sabine. Hugo had a very lanky frame. Still does. My mother suggested measuring the girls all over and to take notes, I think it's a good idea. Now, I just need to remember to get out my measuring tape before bath time!
