Meet REX, Sydney and proud big sis Lainey

​Elaine ‘Lainey’-2.5, Richard Ernest Xacier (REX) & Sydney Marie-3 months, Dad-Ricky, Mom-Shaila

I love following Shaila on Instagram @mrscoachwalk for a few reasons. First, who doesn’t love baby twin pictures? And secondly, because her older daughter is just as adorable. She also recently had a fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House Charities and is an all around baseball-loving good time mom!

Something fun we enjoy doing: We love watching baseball! Ricky is a college baseball coach, so we spend a lot of our time at the baseball field. Our oldest first went to the baseball field when she was 4 days old. Our twins were about 10 days old when I first brought them.

Favorite twin parenting memory:  I don’t have a lot of memories yet, and I actually don’t remember a lot of the last 3 months thanks to sleep deprivation and mom brain. Recently though, our twins have started being more aware of each other. It is so precious when they smile and laugh at each other. Sometimes they hold each other’s hands when they are laying side-by-side. I’m really enjoying watching their bond start to develop.

Favorite Hack/Tip: I’m still emerging from the newborn fog, so I don’t have a lot of hacks yet. We live far away from our families, so asking for help, accepting help, and building a village has been super important for us. I was never good at this before and I’m still learning, but I’m getting better.  Also grocery delivery service has been a game changer.
