I’ve been keeping track of my week, day by day, and participating in Adventuroo’s Week in the Life series. I’m afraid that Monday and Tuesday were more interesting, photo wise, although I took more photos today (473!!) than any other day this week.

As soon as I got the kids to school this morning, I ran home and got myself ready to drive down to a friend’s house for a photo shoot. As hard as a one year old toddler is to keep still, newborns are even MORE tough to photograph. I tell every single new parent that the peaceful, sweet photos of newborns that they see are a misconception. Newborn photo shoots are never peaceful and quiet. Those angelic photos come after 400+ pictures and a couple of hours of patience.

Multiply that by two today for Newborn TWINS!

If it’s hard to keep one baby happy during a photo shoot, its doubly tricky to keep two babies happy at the same time. Either one was fussing…

Or the other one was.

Every once in a while I caught some pictures that I fell in love with.

Really, as much as I might complain about how hard it is, I LOVE spending time with new babies and I love taking their pictures. And, of course, the simple fact that I got to hold two week old twins today was enough to make my ENTIRE DAY.

Things that did NOT make my day:

  • Getting hit by a flying rock on the freeway and needing to get my windshield repaired.
  • Seeing the Service Engine light come on right after the windshield was cracked.
  • Getting a call from Reese’s school saying that she received a head injury during PE this afternoon. The school nurse said that she was just fine (she had collided with another student in her class).
  • Discovering, after Reese came home from school 20 minutes later, that her hair was crusted over with blood. The nurse missed the fact that the other student’s TOOTH broke skin…
  • Calling the Pediatrician, only to have the office tell me that I should call the office back when there would be nurses available for me to chat with. When I asked when that would be, the receptionist told me that they should be around on Friday.
  • Being so numb and tired and blah that I got no work done.

Other things that happened today that were not so bad:

  • Finding out that Reese’s soccer practice was cancelled because of rain (don’t worry – I wouldn’t have sent her on account of her head injury)
  • Having my pregnancy post featured on the front page of ABC News’ Million Moms Challenge blog.
  • Picking KitKat up after she was gone for 2 1/2 days as a counselor at Outdoor Ed.
  • Talking to my mom on the phone.

My bed has been calling me for hours…

  4. Those baby photos are so cute!! And how awesome having your pregnancy story featured, too! Definitely not cool about the bloody head/tooth knocking incident, though. I hope her head’s feeling better.
