1. Real food. Today we had chopseuy for lunch, a huge improvement from the cans of tuna, spam, and corned beef we’ve been eating the past days. With our pantry and ref replenished with goods from our recent grocery shopping, we have two weeks worth of real and healthy menu in place. I wish I could say I’m the one cooking, but I don’t have 8 hands. Thank God I can leave the cooking to Ate Sally (our yaya) while I look after the twins.
2. Sleeping routine. One of the many challenges in raising twins is getting the two babies to follow ONE sleeping routine. In the afternoon, they almost always take naps alternately. Meaning, one sleeps while the other is awake, and just as the other one starts to fall asleep, the other one starts to wake up. Which makes it impossible to take a break and do other things because you always have at least one baby to feed, or entertain, or carry.
But in the evenings when the lights are out, ahhhh, these two sleep like a baby! (I know, they are babies.) Looking back to those first few days when each of them (EACH!!) would cry within 2-3 hour intervals, and now, they sleep through 5-6 hours straight (sometimes even longer), we sure have come a long way in the sleeping department. #happydance
3. God is in control. What a timely reminder, when suddenly some things in our life are not certain, and fears start to creep back in. It’s reassuring to know that, just as there’s food in the ref, and we have a warm bed to sleep in at night, God is in control.
