Do you think twin babies are expensive?

I just can’t help but feeling proud of myself that I am still able to breastfeed the boys now, at 10 months. I know, it sounds almost unbelievable to most as it takes a lot of effort to successfully breastfeed one baby, what’s more feeding two.

Yesterday while running my errands, I was talking to some ladies while waiting for my food and they commented that my twins must be “pricey” in terms of spending on milk powder and disposable diapers. Not wanting to explain in details about cloth diapering in a hot coffee shop, I just merely tell them they are not that expensive, apart from being difficult to take care of. Reason is because they are still on breastmilk only, and we have not invest a single sen on formula as of today.
Guess where their eyes go to immediately after that? I bet anyone listen to my answer would shift their eyes to would be anxious to find out if I am that BIG to be able to feed TWO! *common reaction*

Feeding 2

I just can’t help but feeling proud of myself that I am still able to breastfeed the boys now, at 10 months. I know, it sounds almost unbelievable to most as it takes a lot of effort to successfully breastfeed one baby, what’s more feeding two.

I bet anyone listen to my answer would shift their eyes to my body part to find out if I am that BIG to be able to feed TWO! Hey, I know you are now imagine how I look …….Ok… I admit, they are rather small after all!

New hosting for De Moments

From the first day I decided to use WP, I never had an easy life with it. First time I got a stranger helping me to set up this humble blog of mine. Then I kacau Papajoneh to do the auto upgrade for me.

And now, since I am having my blogs hosted seperately, it is best (and cheaper) to combine into one hosting. I should have migrated this blog from another host when I signed up with Exa during their sale promotion (which accepts Addon Domains). I just did not have the courage to do so last year, afraid that I might lost everything when migration is being done. How true it is, if I am the one who do the migration this time. So instead of having me doing it (initially was guided by CP), eventually it was ALL done solely by Chooi Peng (guess she just could not stand talking IT to someone like me anymore). I must admit that she has been a great teacher, guiding me here and there, but I guess I am just too lousy to understand how this whole madness works.

My greedy twin

I expected jealousy to start between the boys, but it happens even sooner than I thought.

Whenever one boy sees me carrying another, he will change his face expression to a pity look. Then he will start crying asking me to carry him too. So now, whenever I breastfeed them, I have to also feed another at the same time. Unlike when they were younger, tt is not that difficult to feed 2 babies at the same time as I can just “drag and adjust” their limbs and bodies to me easily since they are harder on their bones.

There are lots of funny position that I can think of when feeding them, particular Di-di. He would sometimes climb over me, going round like a clock. Sometimes they poke each other in eyes, and sometimes they pull hairs and ears of another party. At one time, he even pushed poor Kor-kor away, and continue helping himself with Kor-kor’s meal!

Each breastfeeding moment is such a memorable experience for me. If only I could have pictures to share…, but hmm….it is so difficult. *hint hint to Jazzmint and Sue’s help on our next photography session*
