I'm linking up with Kelly’s Korner today! Today is Show us Your life: moms of multiples.As you know by now.. I have twins! HAH! Or instead of saying twins I always tell people I have two to love;)
I had my babies on December 30, 2011. Jocelynn was born at 12:40 p.m and the JP at 12:41!
I absolutely love being a mom and better yet, a mom of multiples. Its everything I thought it would be and more. This is my dream job and it always has been. There's nothing I've ever wanted more than being a mom, I guess because we went through so much to get our babies. When I was growing up I would always tell my mom “I cant wait to be a mom” (and yes she got freaked out by that) but it was true. I knew I would wait for the perfect man, get married and have babies and its funny because I always wanted twins. Little did I know I would have to go through IVF to get them but everything worked out and I would do it all over again to get my sweet angels.
Being a mom of multiples is fun, hard, and scary sometimes. When we were in the hospital I remember thinking how terrified I was to bring them home, I had so much anxiety over it! I knew I could do it but there is always that though.. what if I cant? These babies are depending on me to take care of them and what if I mess up? or do something wrong? or feed them when they are really wanting to be changed? SO many questions ran through my head and it terrified me. I think everyone might go thought that (or maybe I'm just OCD and telling myself that). Needless to say, we all did just fine! Don’t get me wrong.. there were some bad days and I would cry all day long
most of that being hormones. After the mean hormones left, me and my sweet angels got to know each other and I could tell what they wanted, when they wanted it. For the first two weeks I “catered” to them. I fed them every time they wanted to eat and let them sleep when they wanted to sleep. After the two weeks I started the Moms On Call schedule! And can I just say those moms are geniuses! My babies are 13 weeks old today and they sleep from 8:30-7:00! It took a while for us to get to “sleeping through the night” but we are here and this momma is happy! Thanks to moms on call when people ask me “is it hard with twins'”? I can reply “no, not at all”.
I couldn’t imagine my life without my babies; I cant even remember what my life was like before having them. My life is so complete with them and we are just a big happy family!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday and has a wonderful weekend!!
