A morning alone with my three boys

Today, I am home alone with 3 boys.

Starting the day with playing the minifigs from lego movie.

And then, Lucas started crying.

After not long when I told myself to focus on playing with Jayden, Lucas started crying.

And Mcdelivery guy came knocking my door and I prepared the hotcakes for Jayden. He still loves hotcakes.

As Hazel was out, I ordered for Mcdonald’s delivery with hotcakes for Jayden. It is still one of the things that he can eat q u i t e fast. 

As when I finished with preparing for Jayden hotcakes, Issac cried. Ahhh. Double cries!

As I needed to prepare to bathe them, I put them together hoping that they can soothe themselves. They are twins right? Well, Lucas stopped but Issac went on and on. And I rushed to continue preparation of the bath.

Lucas stopped crying when placed in the warm bath tub giving him a nice rinse in the morning. Time for milk soon!

Issac stopped crying almost immediately when placed in the soothing warm bath tub and I continue giving him a nice rinse in the morning. Time for milk soon!

And time for Issac milk. You can actually see who has been the ferocious milk drinker based on size. Issac drinks milk fast too!

You can actually see who has been the ferocious milk drinker based on size. Issac drinks milk fast too! Hazel calls him the Milk Monster. Oh and she says that I prefer Issac too. Well, that is just because he is so much easier to feed!

Finally time for a sip of the now cool down coffee. Better than nothing ya? Yes, that is Jayden still eating at the background.

Finally time for a sip of the now cool down coffee. Better than nothing ya? Yes, that is Jayden still eating at the background. I am seriously taking all this by myself. Hazel says that I still very free! But the truth is, taking photos, posting on Instagram, etc just calms my nerves and takes away some stress.

After having his fill of the milk, he finally settles for his nap. Ahhh.

Time for Lucas bath time! He seems to enjoy it more than Issac.

Milk milk. I don't really fancy feeding him. He like to turn his head around when drinking milk and can't keep still. Aiyooooo

And when I am busy feeding and bathing the twins, Jayden is taking his sweet time to finish his hotcakes!

Preparation for Twins - Naming them

The eldest is Jayden and we love calling him in his nickname, Den Den. Many people asked me if the twins were going to be named after some “den”, like Ayden, Kayden, etc. Not in any chance! 

The other stuff that we were brainstorming was, “Should we go with all the Js?” Maybe naming all three boys to start with J?” The agreed answer was no again. We cannot think of enough nice boys names to be using Js.

So we had an interesting thought. I am Kelvin and mummy is Hazel.

So, “K" & “H". And we have “J". In the natural order of alphabets, H, I, J, K and J lies in between H & K. So since we have a J already, and also they are twins, perhaps we can name them both starting with “I”. We gone through the list of possible names using “I” and two came up to be something we quite like. Ian and Issac. However, I am not particularly fond of the name Ian and I told Hazel that we could probably twist our little naming concept around.

H I J K was the idea and the original idea was to have all our sons' name to start with the alphabet that was between our names. Why not go with H I J K L? It is all in good running order, not in the order of birth though but the order of alphabets. So the first twin will have a name starting with “I” and the second twin will have a name starting with “L”. Best of all, we both like a name in “L” that was shortlisted during Jayden’s time.

So that is it.

They will be named Issac and Lucas.

Stay patient my dear sons, Mummy and Daddy will be seeing both of you soon. Meanwhile, gain more weight!!!

Preparation for Twins - Clothing for the little ones

After Jayden outgrew his cloths, we made it a point to keep them boxed up just in case we could use them again. So a few years later, we just opened it up again to prepare for the twins.

There was quite a bit of baby stuff that was stained after being kept closed and stored in a box for years. I would say that about 30% of them were badly stained. Not sure if we could use it again after washing. But I told Hazel that we should try. 

In any case, what was enough for one Jayden is definitely not going to be enough for the upcoming twin boys. Anyway, I usually leave this part to my lovely wife who is always quite happy to be shopping for their new clothing.

Tada! She showed me how much was being bought already and I was like OMG. I wanted to count the number of rompers, etc but gave it up soon after.

You can always bet on the mummy that will ensure the little ones have sufficient nice new clothing to wear.

She tells me that there is still not enough short sleeve stuff.
