They started sleeping more through the night lately so that will make a world of difference when that becomes the norm.

They also already have a built-in playmate with each other, which helps a ton. Of course, they are already laughing and talking in gibberish to each other, already conspiring against us. But for now, Guinness is my friend.
Twins or not, no advice I recieved from friends and family could prepare me for actually having children of my own. You just need to live threw it and make up **** as you go along.

For me, when my daughters began walking, talking, and feeding on their own things got a lot less stressful. And the benefits have started to come my way. Being able to sit in my recliner while watching the Skins, Caps, or Nats and ask my 5 year old to get me a beverage out of the fridge so I don't have to get up is very nice. Now if my 3 year old would embrace using the potty I will be sitting pretty until the teenage years kick in.
