    I hear you there. My 2.5 yr old BB frats push the boundaries every single day.
    I would have to say this is probably the hardest stage I've experienced. Actually not necessarily hardest, but most frustrating. They're talking pretty well but still struggle actually talking to me when there is a problem and just whinge - drives me insane!

    We are TTC and I still have days where I think "I'm trying to add another baby to this?"

    Oh the joys of multiples

    Hi all! I can hardly believe my little girls are almost 9 months. It seems like yesterday they were born! They are great babies for the most part which I am extremely thankful for AND they have decided they are going to start sleeping through yay!!! Both are starting to talk and crawl which is awesome. It gets a but hectic but I wouldn't trade it for the world

    So great to hear everything is going well Jess. I've been following your posts because you had just given birth when I found out I was having twins. Mine are now 14 weeks (8 weeks corrected) and just starting to be curious about each other. It's a very special time. Are you coping ok with them being more active now?

    Congrats Missleo

    I am coping really well for the most part however I have been depressed a few times as well. I recently made the choice to leave a fb DIG because of how much they were stressing me out about my parenting choices because I am still breastfeeding and we have had weight gain issues (up 1kg each this month yay!!). If you find yourself in a similar situation please cull friendships raising multiples is difficult enough without added negativity. My girls are coming along in leaps and bounds. Its so awesome seeing their differences developing though its very interesting. How are your babies?

    How is everyone else coping?

    Tw1nmummy how is tt going? Are they taking to it well? Ttc again, how exciting! I often think it would be good but then consider logistics.. We cant fit a third seat in our car, still bfing and hoping to until at least 2, what if we end up having another set of twins again? And the age old I want to be back at my pre pregnancy weight before trying again. Would love to have twins again though lol I must be crazy?

    Great to hear about how others are going. Our girls are coming up to 7 months so out focus has been on introducing solids. They live their food but I'm a bit confused about fitting all the feeds in, maintaining bfing etc. It feels like all I do is feed them! There are so many opinions on whether milk feeds should take priority, or solids at this stage and I keep fluctuating on what I should do. Sigh....questions!

    Ours seem to be a bit behind on rolling, pushing themselves up on their tummy time and putting weight on their legs, but they have excellent fine motor skills and are doing well at sitting so I figure it will all work itself out.

    Last night was our girls' first night in separate cots. Pushed up against each other still. Big step for me....they were fine!

    Thoroughly enjoying being a twin mummy and the girls are SO good to us so it's been a dream. Definitely twice as nice so far!

    My girls are going great, they're 5.5 months and such good babies. One go down at 6, the other 6.30, wake between 6-7 for a feed and then back down until 8.30-9. I refused to let them stay up after their feed as it gives me time to get DD2.5 her breakfast and get myself showered and fed. I think I'm happy enough but have felt very isolated lately as it feels like no one makes the effort with me anymore, they just think I'm too busy, I dunno. Love having twins an wouldn't change a thing :-)

    Eliot, I'm the same lately! I think after all the newborn visits everyone assumes you're under control and busy so stop visiting. I've found I want catch ups more now than I did in the beginning though!

    I thought about all those things, what about another set, logistics, it'll be a circus here! But we have the space at home, big car and I've already got everything blue and pink so were set haha no out lay. I don't want a bigger age gap than 3.5 yrs so technically.. We have to get cracking. I've lost all the twin weight although I want to lose another 10 and once I've managed that then it's on, more than likely August and beyond this yr. We have a few weddings before then and I want to enjoy them not vomiting my guts up haha

    I'm pretty nervous but if we didn't have another 1 (maybe a surprise 4th haha) I'd forever regret it at 50.
