What is Special About This Dad of Multiples?

Russ is the best dad of twins and a toddler! Not only did he do all the work post c-section so I could recover he also does a TON now! He works 60 hour weeks and still gives all three kids a bath a couple times a week. He also takes them so mommy can have a break once a week. HE IS A GREAT DAD!!!!

What Should We Know About Your Multiples?

Leah and Alexa just turned 5 months. They were born 3 1/2 weeks early, Leah weighed 7 lbs 3oz and Alexa was 5 lbs 9oz, Alexa was in the NICU for 5 days and then came home. Alexa is very laid back and Leah is very vocal and loves to be held. Alexa is sleeping through the night while her sister is not. They love their big sister Ariana who is 3 1/2 years old.

Advice

  • My advice to other families of multiples is relax and take it one day at a time :)
