The Journey Begins With Irish Twin’s
The first year of having these two boys, Jack and Luke, I thought was the most challenging and I may have been right.
911 What’s your Emergency:
When Luke was about two months old I went to go change his diaper. Jack grabbed my phone off the couch and called 9-1-1 due to the emergency options on cell phones today. When I told the dispatcher, “it appears that my 1-year-old doesn’t like it when his little brother gets a diaper change,” she just started laughing.
Shopping with Irish Twin’s:
When you have to go to Walmart with a one-year-old that has just started walking and an infant, it is a challenge at first then it becomes easier. I would put Luke in the baby carrier while Jack was in front of the shopping cart. Often we had to leave while someone was screaming, but we were all alive at the end of the day and that was all that mattered.
Public Appearances with Irish Twin’s:
Out in public by myself when I had to go to the bathroom with an infant strapped to you and a one-year-old touching everything was complicated. It seemed like all I was doing was saying stop touching this or that all the time.
One day, I decided to take them to the park, and I had Luke in the stroller. I was trying to play with Jack, however, it’s tough to keep pushing a stroller around so you can keep an eye on your other child. We didn’t do this often alone. We started going with some other local momma’s which made it a little easier because Jack had other kids his age to interact and play with.

The financial side of having Irish twins or any multiples for that matter. You have double the cost of formula, wipes, diapers, and more. The positive side of having them close together is that when Jack grew out of something Luke grew right into.
Luke celebrated his first birthday!
Celebrating the boys 2nd Christmas.
Then Jack celebrated his second birthday that for some reason I have no pictures of. Yes, this totally happens when you have multiples! Especially since Luke doesn’t even have his own first-year scrapbook. That is on my to-do-list.
