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 seem to remember spending quite a long time looking at batteries and then deciding not to purchase any. I don’t even know what we came home with.
Our life takes place in three hour increments. Midnight to 3:00 a.m. are currently the hardest for me, but that is only because my parents take the 6:00 a.m. feed right now (praise God). Today my parents actually had to leave the house and attend to.. you know.. other life things.. as adults sometimes have to do. Rob and I barely made it. I am so thankful that they don’t have anywhere to be tomorrow morning.
Though I may feel like a zombie, Evelyn and Olivia are thriving. They are both gaining weight and getting chunky. They are well on their way to losing their teeny preemie legs and arms. Both of them have cheeks! I love them to pieces and just stare at them on a pretty regular basis. However, let’s not sugar coat things. Sometimes I am staring at them and thinking, why are you awake?!
I love seeing them start to be able to interact with each other and us. They are both very alert and love to stare at you with their enormous eyes. I am excited for when they can make eye contact on a more regular basis. I can’t believe that they will be a month old on Saturday. How did that happen?
