The twins will be 6 months old. Holy shit, when did that happen? I will probably do a post about them specifically over the weekend…
Right now I am more concerned with the fact that their 6 month check up/torture session is coming up. Seriously, I have anxiety over it.
Their shots are sad, and poor baby boy Cash takes them so hard. Sometimes I wonder if his older/smaller sister is going to have to beat up bullies for him. Either way, I am teaching them to “sweep the leg” and “no mercy” when it comes to sticking up for each other. Kobra Kai!
Then there is the fact that the doctor is going to ask about how they are sleeping. At their 4 month appointment he volunteered that we can start having them cry it out at 6 months, and since they are not sleeping substantially better I know that he is going to suggest it. I am tired. My husband is tired. The twins are tired. I don’t want to hear about how letting them CIO is going to magically solve everything. I hear them cry plenty since not letting them cry “ever” is not a realistic option for us, and I definitely don’t think that I could handle or want to handle hearing them cry for hours. Hopefully he won’t go on and on about it.
Then this is going to be the appointment where we talk about feeding the babies, and I am going to tell him that we are sticking with baby led weaning. We have already let them hold and taste avocado, Cash has held and gummed some toast… Patience has stuck her hand in pretty much everything at this point but has no interest in eating or tasting any of it. I am hoping that the doctor is receptive and not going to push spoon feeding baby food a couple of times a day. I mean, I don’t mind feeding them with a spoon a bit but I would really like to stick with this plan (you know, until I don’t want to anymore).
I am tired. I am going to go to bed and snuggle babies.
