Good morning friends! It’s good to see you again. My sabbatical lasted a little longer than I was expecting it to, but to be fair, I think I was very overly optimistic about what I could do while taking care of two tiny humans. Right now I have one sleepy boy and one wide awake boy hanging out in his rock n’ play and since he seems content, we’re trying blogging today. This may not be very long, it may not show up until this afternoon, if at all, but we’ll give it a try this morning and see how far we get. For starters, let me introduce you to:
The two newest members of the Scavo family. Calvin is the oldest and was born vaginally without assistance, Myles came second and was pulled out by his ankles. Don’t think about that too hard. They are both happy and healthy and wonderful and today they are three months old.
Yeah, I wasn’t planning on it taking three months to get back here, but here we are, three months later with a missing week that I had promised to blog during. I feel like I kind of dropped off the face of the earth for a while, there, and I did want to get back to you all about all the things that happened in that time I was gone, but things pile up quickly with twins and life is funny so it’s taken quite a while. I have so much I want to tell you all, but now I have two awake boys who are playing under the play gyms, which will probably keep them happy for quite a while. Still, you never know when a wakeful boy is going to become a sad boy. I guess you never know when a sleeping boy is going to become a sad boy either. They change moods so quickly.
I was so hopeful that I could go back to blogging at lest once a week to start with. My mom-in-law comes on Mondays and my mom comes Tuesday night and stays through Wednesday to help me with the boys, so in theory I should have enough down time to blog between the two days. But of course that’s not how twins work. There’s always laundry to be done when there’s help and bottles to be washed and boys to be changed and entertained. Still, I kept hoping and finally, today I have decided to just go for it. I am pretty sure this will be a spuratic thing for the foreseeable future. I may get to write while they nap, or while they’re playing like they are now, happy together in their respective play gyms, but it might be a while between posts.
I really want to tell you all about the week I was in the hospital. Yeah, I was in the hospital for a week leading up to the birth, hence my disappearance. I really want to tell you all about my birth story, about Myles’ stay in the NICU and how hard that was, about learning to take care of boys, about my pumping saga (because it has been a saga), about my emotions as a new mom, about how everything has changed, and most importantly, all about my boys. But these are very long posts and I’m not sure I’ll have time to sit down and write them all out at one time. So maybe I’ll try writing as I can and saving them to publish when I get to it.
I’m writing on my iPad with my handy dandy mini keyboard, which has finally come in handy as I sit with my boys playing. I have coffee, thanks to my wonderful husband who made a Dunks run just for me. We’ve had two weeks of various illnesses here, of which I am the last to recover, naturally, so I’m wearing a mask around my ears right now, ready to pull up when a boy neeeds me, but allowing me to breath freely in the mean time. This is what my life looks like right now and as much as I love it, I can’t tell you how good it feels to have keys under my fingers again.
I think Calvin is getting bored with his gym as now he’s whining a little. That’s my cue, I think to close this out so I can spend my day taking care of my tiny humans. I’m on my own today, for the first time in a while, so we’ll see how this goes. It’s been great to chat with you all again. Thanks for still being here when I get back. I promise lots of baby pictures and baby stories and so many adventures in the coming weeks as I try to catch you all up. In the mean time, have a lovely day, my friends.
