Desperately Seeking Baby...Babies Found

My thoughts on raising twins and a singleton after infertility.

Today was an exciting day. We went to the park on another family walk. This time, we brought along my niece, nephew and brother. I walked around the trail there several times with the babies and did quite well. I think I'm nearing ready for walking around Greenlake.

When we got back from our walk, I was going to put the stroller into the trunk of the car for our little outing tomorrow to my office, but it doesn't fit!!! Great!!! It fits into the front seat of the car though. So all those people who said we may need to get a bigger car, they just might be right unfortunately. Grr!! I am so close to paying this car off, and I was looking forward to having no car payments. So any suggestions on an affordable but roomy automobile?

Also, when we got back, we gave the babies a bath. They really do not like having a bath. Benjamin wasn't quite awake when we started his bath, but he fussed throughout the whole thing. Ella just wasn't a happy camper at all.

That's all I have time to write for now. :-)

    Oh my gosh, what a perfect day for a walk, too. Wasn't it gorgeous? I used to walk around Greenlake with my dad when I was young!

    We have a Honda Pilot and I love it.

    Glad you are having so much fun, Heather! How do you feel post-partum wise? Were you low at all? I'm a little worried about that for myself.

    sounds like a nice day out!

    We have also considered getting a Honda Pilot.

    What kind of stroller did you get?

    glad the walk went well, I'm nearing the point of itching to get out for one soon, but not today with the heat! I'm going to hole up in the house in the A/C - thank you very much!

    As for cars, with twins, you might want to bite the bullet and consider (just look into it, don't resist so readily, would ya??) a minivan. Think ahead to the rainy season and having to get them in/out of convertible seats in the rain. If you have a minivan, you can get inside easier, close the door and get them strapped up w/o getting drenched.

    Other than that, a smaller SUV like a CRV would be a good option too for the stroller and 'stuff' you need with two. Or a wagon like a Subaru maybe?

    You know how much I LOVE my Pilot, it's the second one I've had and I wouldn't want to get anything different (except maybe the Odyssey - yeah, I said it. I like the minivan. I think it makes me cool!).

    Awww...that sucks about the stroller. Would it be possible to return it? Or even buy a new one? I know it's not optimal, but waaaay cheaper than spending 30k for a new car.
