It’s been just over 9 months since these little boys graced our lives with their presence. Can you believe it?? It’s insane to think that in a few short months, they’ll be a year old. I now understand why they say take as many photos as you can and enjoy every moment. The first year really does become a blur after a while…
Although they came just shy of 2 months early, Hubbz & I’ve been truly blessed. Not once have they fallen behind, they’ve stayed on track. It could always be worse and in no way are we out of the woods just yet. But to make it to this point with no real issues (other than Reflux & Laryngomlacia), I call that a blessing!
What’s it like you ask?
Well, to tell you the truth… it’s a circus! My house is not as chaotic as some, but damn near. I chose to not go the nanny route, after firing my first one. I just felt that a) it wasn’t my style & b) it’s so hard to find someone who you can trust. Daycare was out of the question from the beginning, as I only wanted something part-time and for multiples, there weren’t many in my area that offered that from infancy. So, by the time all was said and done, we decided I’d stay home and (since I already semi-worked out of my home office) take care of the boys. Having said that, I don’t have help. Wherever I go, it’s just me and the boys. Unless Hubbz is home from the field, then it’ll vary. It’s a never-ending spectacle, to which I truly despise. I think most people can see the “warning” label on my forehead well before they even reach me to ask if they’re twins or not. I say twins, because I think most are scared to ask if they’re really triplets. Yet, everyone drops their jaws in angst when I confirm those fears…. LOL
So sorry for the delay in posting. A lot has been taking precedence in my life. Of course the boys, trying to get my pre-pregnancy body back (which I might add is extremely difficult, no matter how fit you were prior), becoming a brand/product tester, and even leading a multiples meetup group. Yeah, tell me about it. A lot! I’ll tell you more about how the group came to be in another post…..
I’m so grateful for all of the support from all of you….even those still in throes of things. As I’ve said countless times before, I’m still here with you. I’m not different, still struggling with IF, and still keeping up with your goings on. I’m here. You can ALWAYS find me. ;) I’ve found friends in so many of you, I can’t imagine life without y’all…regardless of where we’re at on our paths.
I’ve got a lot coming up that will be highlighted on this blog. From starting another blog & adding a couple of new brands to my belt, to gearing up for my boys’ 1st Dr. Seuss themed birthday. Giveaways…yep! Fun, FREEBIES, and lots of Mommy approved – kid tested products. Big names too, so stay tuned!!
Be back shortly…
In the meantime, let me leave you with some 9-month eye candy! These photos were taken on a recent Zoo outing… Our FIRST to be exact.
What an experience that was!
The outing was nearly identical to that of a recent video that surfaced on the net. I’m including it for your entertaining purposes…..
