I guess this post is a comment/question post. My twins are about 10 months old now. They were both born with flat head…ya know…when there is a flat spot on the back or front. It is mainly caused by the inactivity of the mother during the pregnancy.
Do your twins/multiple births have flat head? Did they grow out of it? Did it round out? Are there any of you with single births where your children were born with flat head?
Our one twin–his head as rounded out. The other one has started to round out but you can still see the flat spot. I am wondering if it does round itself out. His soft spot is still REALLY big–so I am thinking his body kind of knows his head needs to round out still. I guess I am just wondering–are we the only ones with flat head little baby boys? Regardless…i luv ’em and they are the cutest babies ever…no…really…they are!

Shocking and unplanned…yea…to say the least. Especially since we had just had a baby and had a 3 year old to top that off. Kids are wonderful and cute and all that, but when you find out you are pregnant with twins…you feel like you got into a car accident. You think, “How could something like this happen…This kind of thing never happens to me, This isn’t happening,”…ya know…the usual. I know some of you reading this will think I am the worst person ever…but I am not. I am just telling you how it feels to have every plan you ever made stop in an instant. Even if we already had two kids, twins are a whole different cup of tea. We had only planned on 2 kids. When we got pregnant again, we thought maybe 3 wouldn’t be so bad…yea…three kids…that is funny. But that is the way life is. Life is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans…at least that is what I hear. I also hear that if you want to make God laugh…just make some plans. He thinks that is the funniest thing since…well…sending twins to a couple who are convinced they will only have 2 kids…funny.
Not only do you need 2 of everything, but you need about 5 people to properly take care of them. Before I had twins, I could never image how parents of twins could do it. Now that I have twins, I can’t image how parents of even more multiples could do it. I find parenting 2 single births and a set of twins hard enough.
So, shocking and unplanned…yes. But they are wonderful. I could do with more sleep…and less poopy diapers (cause we have 3 in diapers…yes…our garage smells like a poop factory)…but we love them…multiples and all.
