I was browsing through my photos and realized how Iris had grown. She had pictures from the day she was born, when our camera was still a point and shoot one up to now that she’s a toddler. Hubby and I really made sure everything is being documented through photos which are stored in his computer’s hard drive. Same goes with the twins, we want to have memories how they grow.Therefore, we take photos with them as often as possible, the dort. We can show them what they were like later.
But since there are thousands of pictures, it’s too expensive to have them printed so for now, they have to remain in a hard drive. What I worry is that if the drive crashes. It would be a disaster. To prevent it, we’re planning to get a data backup so that the photos and other files won’t be lost even if the hard drive crashes.

I love bags and got excited when I found out that Mommy Eihdra, the owner of One Proud Momma ans Make Money Online is having her anniversary giveaway with bags as the top prizes. Aside from that, cute girly tops and kikay accessories will be given randomly to join who will join her contest.
There are required and optional tasks to do like blogging about it, commenting, tweeting and more. But to make the most possible number of points, try to do it all. Here’s the contest page for the complete mechanics.
Loves to Help
Iris is now three-years old and is becoming more and more curious in everything around her. She likes to ask questions, loves to butt-in whenever me and hubby are talking about something to ask what are we talking about. But what I enjoy and like at her stage is her hunger for knowledge and being helpful. She loves to help in every way she could, folding the clothes, getting the twins’ clothes and throwing their diapers among others. I wonder until what age she will be like that?
She also loves to read, write and learn new things that she doesn’t get bored even if she does it all day. Will she still be like that as she grows older? Will she still be willing to learn new things like look for accutane review when asked to help her nanny get rid of acne? Will she help her when she’s already, say, in her teenage years?
Waiting for the Nannies
I’ve just posted last week that I badly need a nanny for the twins. I am the one taking care of them but most of the time, one of the twins cries whenever I carry the other. It breaks my heart to see the other cry while I hold the other one. If only I could carry them both.
As a solution, me and hubby thought of hiring a nanny so that one can carry the other while I feed or cuddle the other baby. The nanny can also take care of the twins while I get some sleep.
Having three daughters, I think at least two helpers are needed. We already have one who takes care of Iris and do almost everything around the house. She cooks, do groceries, do the laundry and cleans the house. She also volunteers to carry one of the twins when both are awake and the other one is crying. I know she pities me as she see me having a hard time taking care of the twins so she helps. But another helper or nanny is really needed to take care of the twins so that I can have a time for myself.
If there are already two helpers, it will be less stressful and I’ll have more time to do research for my next project at work which is about business intelligence. Thus, I can find out more about bi software my new project can use.
