So I was taking some pictures for an ad for work and I had my camera left out after we got back from the store. So I decided to do a photo tour of what life w/twins by the numbers is like!
They are innocent and VERY tiny but don't let it fool you... they consume!
We go through 5 of these per month. They are 3 lb "double cans" of formula. One is missing... probably still in the car.
This is a month of solids. It is 78 servings!
These are the daily bottles. Depending on the time of day they eat more or less formula. We do 5 feedings every 24 hrs. They hate large servings and still don't sleep through the night.
Bulky kid equipment everywhere x2! We have had at one point or another 2 bouncers, 2 swings, 2 excersaucers, 2 play mats, 2 infant carseats, 2 boppies, 2 bumbo chairs; and soon we will have 2 convertible carseats, 2 high chairs (I'm desperately holding off), and 2 cribs in the nursery. Big stuff sucks. There is no place to walk.
Diapers by bulk (about 200 a month per child and a big box of 720 wipes). We keep Rach in the Huggies and Cally in the Pampers b/c they are in different sizes and it is easier to differentiate.
Laundry for a week. We normally have about 13 outfits per week (we have some ubber cute onesies I use on days we don't leave the house), 16 onesies, 14 sleepers, 14 pairs of socks, and about 40 bibs!
Pacifiers are the bain of my existence. I can only guess but we probably have around 40 lying around our house and or in the SUV but when the twins are screaming NONE are anywhere to be found. We buy around 6 new ones a month and had 14 to begin with. I'm sure we also have lost some in the line of duty at restaurants, stores, and parks.
These are more for me than for the twins. Daddy always tries to get fresh ones for me each week. It is my reward for all the poopy diapers I deal with while he is at the office ;)
