Who are the real twins?

My boys love each other no doubt...but I really feel like Jack and Paige are the real twins! They look SO much alike! It is scary!

My fatty Jack. He is a much better eater than Braley, and it shows! He is really chunking up.

This is a horrible picture of my gorgeous girl, but I think it really shows how much she and Jack are twins. The hair, nose, lips, double chin...come on!! I love it!

How are things going here? Pretty well! The hardest time for us is from 5 PM to Paige's bedtime (normally 7:30 ish). The babies start getting fussy and wanting to nurse on and off - which is totally normal and to be expected. But when I am alone, and Paige is starting to get fussy and ready for dinner - wanting to be read to, etc...also all normal behavior for a toddler...shit can hit the fan. I am trying so hard to stay calm during these times. I know that getting myself worked up and stressed won't help anyone. But it is really hard.

In theory, if David got home at 5:30 every night, it would be fine. He could take over Paige duty and I could let the babies do their thing and could handle that just fine.

But that just isn't the reality. I'm lucky if David leaves the office by 6.

Truthfully, though, I'm really happy and enjoying the madness. My babies are beautiful, healthy, and I am completely in love with them. The babies have already changes so much, I know this is all going to go by way too fast.

How is everyone else doing?
