Double Time: How I Survived- and Mostly Thrived- Through the First Three Years of Mothering Twins by Jane Roper

Roper starts out this book with finding out that she's pregnant with twins. She writes about trying to wrap her head around having twins, the early days of learning to feed them, and then onto trying to manage two little girls at the same exact developmental stage while also wanting to know and love each of them individually.

Double Time isn't just about raising twins though. Roper also writes about her struggles with depression and eventually a diagnosis of bipolar II while adjusting to motherhood.

I really liked Roper and her writing. She comes across as sweet, smart, down-to-earth, and also very willing to laugh at herself and not take herself too seriously. She doesn't try to sugarcoat anything about having twins, and she's very real about her depression. I hope that she's working on another book.
