Magically, it has happened. Your twins are finally sleeping long lovely stretches at night. Glorious day. It’s amazing how a 12 hour stretch provides a big enough energy boost that you feel like you could run a full-blown marathon (or binge watch Stranger Things with a glass of wine if that’s your style).

You can't believe you are actually holding your baby in your arms after you felt them grow inside for so long. You get to feel their skin, gaze into their eyes, feed them, put on those insanely adorable baby clothes you so lovingly picked out, and bask in the glow of motherhood. It can be a magical time.
