whoop whoop

This post is long. The last couple days have been long. Evie and Liv got their first real cold two Fridays ago. Runny noses, low fevers, lethargic, fussy babies. They just started daycare so I was pretty prepared for them to have colds. It was a rough week. We decided to head to the pediatrician last Friday because they didn’t seem to be getting any better. It sounded like the cold was starting to settle in their chests. I thought I …

31 weeks

Last night was another night in L&D. I started having contractions at 8:30 p.m. I called my OB at 10:00 p.m. Unfortunately it was the on-call doctor, not my OB. Boo. He sent me straight to the hospital. I was not comfortable knowing that the orders wouldn’t be coming from my regular OB, but at this point, freaking out about anything is pretty much beyond my energy level. I was having contractions in my back that spread around to my …

Marriage

Two years ago tomorrow Rob got into David’s jeep and I got into Ashley’s car. We drove down to the Spokane County Courthouse. I wore a summer dress, Rob wore a tie. Ashley and David were our witnesses. Ashley signed in the wrong place. I don’t even remember what the judge said. We signed the paperwork and were married. Only my housemates were there. No one knew for months. Some people still don’t know. We got married 18 months before …

Two Weeks Out

My family arrives in one week exactly. Then exactly one week after that we are getting married. And what am I doing? Typing furiously. I must have a draft done by today to offer to my professor for proof reading. Part of my feels like, Am I missing this? Am I missing this experience because of the typing? I don’t think so. The minute my family gets here it is done. This paper will be turned in at the end …

23

Yep, I am now 23. 23 and married. 23 and almost done with my second degree. I don’t really feel 23. I would really rather not be 23. Right now I would give anything to be 21. That was a good year for me. My best year of college. The year I got engaged. At 23 I am stuck in a masters program I have no interest in, in a country that has no interest in me. I am job …

Evelyn & Olivia, Four Months

  Man oh man, our babies are four months old. In some ways it seems like it has gone by in the blink of an eye, in other ways it seems time has crawled by ever so slowly. First, let’s remember this.. Two weeks old, not even five pounds. I thought they were cute then. But looking at them now.. they are cute. But more in a starved sort of way. So, where are we? They are on either side …

Evelyn & Olivia, Week Six

What’s in a name? I realize that the girls have been here for six weeks and I have yet to do a name post. Coming up with their names wasn’t the easiest for us, but I am very happy with where we landed. When we found out it was twins I knew we were going to need a way to narrow down the field quickly or we would never come to a consensus. Rob and I are very opinionated and we …

Evelyn & Olivia, Week Five

The good, the bad, and the anxious.. I have never shied away from sharing the harder parts of my life, so why start now? This week has been rough. The girls are growing and thriving and getting chunky. I am on the edge. Olivia is going through a phase where if you don’t feed her exactly when she is hungry she screams bloody murder and is then inconsolable for the entire rest of the night. No pressure. Sometimes she decides she is …

Evelyn & Olivia, Week Four

Then, in a blink of an eye, the girls were a month old. They have both now had multiple appointments to the pediatrician and hit some important milestones. They celebrated being home together by getting their first cold. As colds go, they were relatively minor, but worrying about teeny tiny lungs and stuffed up noses is enough to give a new mom a panic attack. Evelyn is also having some pretty run of the mill tummy problems, but let’s not …

Evelyn & Olivia, Week 7

I can barely count this as week 7, I am so far behind. Having twin infants (or twinfants for those in the know) is rough. Having twin infants that are preemies is brutal. Having twin infants that are preemies, with unexplained health issues, is a new realm of hell. You don’t know panic until you are sitting on the toilet, holding a screaming baby, while hooked up to a breast pump. Even with four adults against two babies, we have …
