Maya Lilac and Ella Lily, 7lb, 2oz, and 7lb 8oz, were born two minutes apart via c-section on Wednesday August 10th. They were both so healthy and have taken to nursing incredibly well! We all came home from the hospital yesterday morning and it's amazing to be back in our own space. More pictures and birth story to come soon when I've gotten a little more rest.

WOW! What good sized twins!! They are so very beautiful and I love their names, especially the middle name Lilac, as it is my favorite flower. :-) I look forward to reading your birth story! hug2.gif

Thinking of you and the twins, mama!



I am still here! I've just been lacking in the energy to actually sit-down-and-type-anything department. I still come on here every once and a while, when I get a moment and I've enjoyed reading the sleep thread and seeing what everyone is up to. I have yet to type out a birth story, which I still intend to do in the soonish future, before it fades from my mind. When I do, I will be sure to post it here.

 

For now, a quick update. The girls are 5 weeks old now!! That is so hard for me to believe. They really are doing great. They are beautiful, happy babies. Sometimes they sleep. Sometimes, like last night, they don't so much. We are starting to see their different personalities come out, which is fascinating. We are doing cloth diapers and some EC. Both are going better than I expected. Breastfeeding is also going really well. My only complaints are that I have TOO much milk. I leak all over everywhere whenever I think about the babies, hear them cry, or just sometimes randomly. I know this is a happy problem, but to me, it's freaking annoying.

 

The longest sleep stretch we've gotten so far is 4.5 hours. That was wonderful! I'm looking forward to when it happens again. Most of the time, we only get a 2-3 hour stretch. I miss being part of this community. Hopefully I will find the time to make that happen again. For now, know that I think about you all often and still come on here to read things! For more updates on the twins, you can read my blog, which I've been keeping weekly. http://thebabymakesfour.blogspot.com/ lots of pictures there!

 

hugs! - Jenny
