However, lugging twins up and down two flights of stairs to feed them solids 3 times a day was starting to wear on me. Especially now that they are getting heavy, my back is taking a serious beating. And I think eventually it will get hot here in good old Massachusetts so spending all day on the third floor won't be so enjoyable. The logical solution: move the baby operation to the first floor, at least for the summer. But probably until they are walking. So, we rearranged the furniture, got a floor mat to protect their noggins and brought some toys and gear from upstairs to keep them entertained. Here's what things look like now:
They have now officially taken over. For such small people, they certainly take up a lot of space. And although my dreams of maintaining a baby-free area in my home have been dashed, it is so much easier to get things done when you don't have to shuttle two infants up and down stairs all day - and that is Making my Monday!
