Evelyn & Olivia, Week Three

Is motherhood kicking my ass? Well, this post should have been written on Friday and posted on Saturday. It’s 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday. So, in a word, yes. Evelyn and Olivia have both been home for a little over a week and it is rough. Rob and I are both a mess. We went to Target together.. two days ago? It’s hard to tell anymore, the days are blurring together. Anyway, we couldn’t even coherently walk around the store. I …

Rob would call it a faff. Because he is British and can pull things like that off. Importing, editing, cropping, compressing.. etc. However, I hate posting without pictures. Boooring.

There are several factors that go into determining a baby’s readiness to leave the NICU, but for my girls, the main factors were eating, maintaining temperature, and gaining weight. Olivia finally …

35 weeks

Friday night I started having contractions. No surprise. I always have contractions. But instead of tapering off, these continued to mount until I had to admit it was time to do something about it. Rob called my OB and it was the on-call doctor. Cue lots of swearing on my part. Rob, being the lovely man he is, told the nurse that if I had to deal with the on-call doctor again I was likely to kill someone. (Side note: …

Evelyn & Olivia, Week One

Tomorrow my teeny babies will be a week old. I don’t know how I can begin to describe what getting to know them has been like. Evelyn is currently smaller than Olivia but she’s ferocious. She nurses with extreme enthusiasm for such a little body. She is easily distracted from eating though, which makes it difficult to get enough calories in her. She loves to look around when she is out of her bassinet, it makes me think that being in …
