Reading responses in the other thread has reminded me of how worried and scared I was during pregnancy. I was scared out of my wits, worried I wouldn't be able to handle having TWO babies. I sincerely appreciate the warnings, as it did keep me on my toes and help me face the reality of two babies coming - and I really do think more of that sort of thing is needed with young moms who "fantasize" about having multiples - but I also think that the JOYS and FUN isn't emphasized enough to moms who are about to be there.

For the moms who've been prepared, and are now SCARED -- let's share some of the GREAT things about having two babies. The earlier in their lives you can think up fun stuff, the better, but share whatever you want! And come back and post again when you think of more!!!

As much as we talk about the ignorance of others who haven't ever been there, and as much as we talk about being annoyed at hearing everyone's stories about their sister's mom's best friend's cousin's uncle who had twins...

Sometimes, especially in the early days, that attention is fun! My twins were born in the beginning of September 2010. Christmas shopping that year, we were stopped (too often LOL) and cooed over a lot! People love babies, and the sheer CUTENESS of twins is unresistable. Having my first baby girl, I LOVED being able to tell everyone that she was my princess, and that God must have a purpose for me and my boys to send me yet another one. I told anyone that would listen - and because I had a captive audience who stopped ME so much of the time, I had lots of people listening. It's mommy brag time!!!

Much thanks to Alethia for my beautiful siggie and tags!!

twins are definitely cute to dress alike/the same---and those fat little babies are so yummy at 5 month old, and two of them are double the cuteness

My turkey boys at 5months with DS1

we used to fill 33 bottles at a time

my chunks this Christmas-the past 2.5years have flown by-having twins is super-cool
HopeToBeAMom and dalynnrmc like this.

Lucky mother to five!

I agree that I actually enjoy the attention most days when we are out, but as a first time mom, I think I would be thrilled to show off any baby I had, and certainly two.

As for the other good things ... I love when they started noticing each other. At only 8 months old we don't get a lot of purposefu interaction yet, but they do reach out to each other ... it is hilarious just to watch one steal the pacifier from the others mouth ... or today during "rug time" when Noah wrapped his arm around Abigail's head ... it almost looked like he was trying to give her a hug (which of course made her cry), but still I find it funny to watch them interact.

I love that the boys love each other and although they fight, I think they will be best buds. I also love all the extra snuggles and kisses!

Thank you to *Kiliki* for creating the perfect siggy!
