two is better than one

I had fed the girls, changed the girls, played with the girls, and now they were getting sleeping… perfect timing because I had 4 hungry boys to feed. I laid the girls down up stairs and told hubby to listen for them because they weren’t completely asleep yet. Within a few minutes hubby came down with Nolia, she was being a little fussy and Paul was holding her while I finished up dinner. Paul walked into the other room with her and I could hear her little fuss now and then and then it stopped. A few minutes went by and in walks Paul holding BOTH sleeping babies.


“Why are you holding both babies… wasn’t Eliza asleep in the bed?”


“Yes, Eliza was asleep but it wasn’t working out for Nolia so I picked her sister up too”


“oh, and how’d that work out for you?”


“perfect, two is much better than one… Nolia needed her sister”


2 sleeping babies and a wonderful husband… oh and a hot dinner for 6. Couldn’t ask for more.

  9. Too precious! I agree with various commenters - Good for hubby, good for you for having a sweetie hubby who thinks on his feet, we need to see all 8 of you, and do they sleep together normally?

  17. It's a twin thing, my brother and I used to do things like that as babies. Even as we grew older we had to know where each other was.

  22. How adorable! I love that! It was sweet that he thought of that and it was super sweet that they both fell asleep as a result. I agree with everyone else - we want to see a family photo! I would also love to see all 6 kids together ... no pressure!

  31. So so sweet! After being so close in the womb I bet it would be hard to sleep apart...no wonder she needed her sister. :) How fun it will be to watch them grow in their relationship with each other over the years.
