This has been a week of many milestones here at Not The Path I Chose.
First of all, the twins are 2 months old!
The way days run into each other around here, I find it hard to believe they've already hit that mark and it's the middle of September.
Big Boy is finally out of preemie clothes and controlling his head better. His cheeks are starting to fill out, both sets! LOL. His smiles are the best, as his whole face light up as he gives his gummy grin.
Pretty Girl is smiling quite a bit, too. She has a double chin now...SO cute and is starting to have to be squeezed into her newborn sized clothes. (The 0-3 are still too big!) She had an ultrasound on her hips this month since she was breech, to make sure everything was OK. Everything looked fine to Mommy and Daddy's relief.
As of Monday the twins seem to have stopped their feeding every hour on the hour schedule, freeing up Mommy to at least be able to go to the bathroom and maybe load the dishwasher. Yay!
Yesterday was my first time going out in public with the two of them by myself. We loaded up the van at 9:15 and headed to the first MOPS meeting of the year. Shockingly, we had no crying for the two hours. Pretty Girl took a short nap, then nursed, while Big Boy looked around for a while then fell asleep. Mommy got to see some friends, enjoy a cup of coffee and feel like herself for a few hours. They were so good, I even braved going out to lunch with a friend afterwards.
Finally, this is my 300th post!
I could have never imagined that I'd be the mother of 3, when I started this blog. I was in a very ugly place emotionally convinced that I'd never have another successful pregnancy. This was my place to rant away and work through those emotions that I thought nobody else understood. What I found was a community who did and has rallied with me as I went through the second half of the long journey that blessed me with the twins. You've cheered my victories, cried along with my losses, and most of all have just been super supportive. Thank you.
