...is pure chaos.
Maeve, who is a sweetheart, is at the "who, what, when, where, why" stage. I thought my ears were going to start bleeding tonight when she kept asking "what are you doing, Mama?" a million times. She also talks loudly. All the time. The concept of playing quietly is totally lost on her, and it often wakes the twins, which adds to the chaos. But, she's got a super imagination lately. She takes us on train rides, slays monsters behind our backs, and concocts elaborate stories about where poop comes from. She also loves her "babies" dearly, and dotes on them like any great big sister would. She seems to be developing a soft spot for her little sister though, which is really cute.
Maren and Beckett are thriving, but boy oh boy, are twins a lot of work. Sleep is our big issue right now. Maren is a great sleeper, but a light sleeper. Beckett takes forever to get to sleep, but sleeps very soundly once asleep. Great combo, eh? (insert eyeroll here). Mom and I have spent the better part of most evenings playing tag, trying to get Beckett to sleep or Maren to stay asleep. I know this will pass, but can it pass more quickly please? Like at the speed of light, preferably? They're also terrible night sleepers, so Mama is a bit tired these days. Brent comes home tomorrow, which will be great as it will help to distract Maeve a little bit.
But, through all of the choas, there are moments like these:
It's a good thing they're cute.
