Day 2 At Home

Everyone,

It's been a good day. The boys are eating like champs. Their jaundice is starting to go away. Pirate has at least 8 messy diapers a day, and it leaked all over me, Juice, and my parent's bed today. Fun stuff! Professor is a very laid back baby. My mom calls him our bonus baby. It's nice to have one that I don't worry about too much. He smacks his lips every time he is done nursing. It's so nice to be appreciated just a little.

Juice asked me what the plan was for today and I said, "Feed a baby, change a baby, repeat to a different baby. Or the same baby. Probably both."

Butterfly is having a little more difficult time. She is happy about the brothers, and really enjoys showing them off. But she throws more tantrums when things are about to change and tries to play Juice and I off each other when one of us says no. She has been asking for me to do things more often which I'm sure is a novelty for her. I have not been able to walk around for so long that for her to see me walking around is fun. It's an adjustment and we'll get through it.

I did start working on the delivery story. I don't want to give up any details so it will make a good story but most of you know a few things so I'll put those up. They were both vaginal deliveries, about 6 minutes apart. I did end up with pre-eclampsia for my blood pressure but it came down nicely about 48 hours after delivery. The gestational diabetes is gone (yay horray!) so I'm back to eating regular food.

Speaking of food, I'm ready for my Something Chocolate! (All local gals, want to go out sometime soon and get desert with me?) I haven't had sugar in so long and I feel like it coats my mouth funny and isn't always good. Amazing what not eating something will do.

I'm off to bed since the boys are still asleep. But here's a cute picture to leave you with. Pirate on the left, Professor on the right. They do not look a THING a like. I think Pirate looks more like Juice, and Professor looks more like my family. But they are great boys and we are having so much fun with them.

  6. oh my heck, look how cute and alert they are! I feel your pain about the older child asking me to do stuff that she can easily do. A wants to be held all the time, and with a belly in the way, it's not very easy anymore! I'm hoping she gets a little bit of this sassiness out of the way before the baby comes. Sounds like you're doing great, though!

  7. How do you have time to blog? You are amazing! They are so cute! I can't believe how tiny they look. I'm incredibly jealous that Julien gets to meet them before I do. Glad to hear everyone is doing well and is healthy.

  14. You look SOOO GREAT!!! Your boys are adorable! I'm so excited to meet them! Can I go out and get chocolate with you too? I know I haven't been deprived like you have but my little one seems to like chocolate milk, so I've been trying to eat as much as possible. It's all for her. I'll make the sacrifice. You look like you're doing well! Congrats again!
