I seriously don’t even know where to start with this post! If you read my final bumpdate and saw my instagram post then you know that the girls made their entrance into the world on November 3rd, and Chris and I couldn’t be more in love. Life with two newborns definitely isn’t all sunshine and rainbows, it’s a lot of work and some late nights, but seeing those cute little happy faces makes it all worth it! Thankfully Chris has had these past two weeks off from work, and we’ve had both grandmothers in town to help us out which has been so awesome! But our lives haven’t been too exciting except for newborn stuff, so I thought that I’d do a little currently post and linkup up with Biana!
WATCHING- A whole lot of Netflix and whatever else is on TV. I think that it’s just the fact that we like having some noise in the background, but we’ve been able to get caught up on the third season of Narcos and we also got all caught up on the current season of Outlander as well. We’ve also been watching a lot of HGTV and Shark Tank too. Pretty much we’ve turned into “couch potatoes” but it’s a great way to kind of mellow out when you’re tired.
READING- Absolutely nothing! I had started The Snowman by Jo Nesbo before the girls got here, but I didn’t have time to finish it before they were born and then of course after that I didn’t really have much time to read anything. Plus it was a library book and had to be returned. I do have the newest Celeste Ng book Little Fires Everywhere coming from the library, so hopefully that’ll get me back into my reading game this month!
EATING- Anything and everything! Breastfeeding burns a lot of calories which means that I feel hungry all the time! We’ve been eating a few of our freezer meals that we made before the girls got here, but we’ve also been eating a lot of sandwiches because I can finally eat cold cuts again! The only thing that I haven’t had since the girls were born that I missed during pregnancy is blue cheese, and hopefully that’ll change soon!
DRINKING- Lots and lots of water! I know that one of the keys with breastfeeding is to stay hydrated, so besides my one latte in the morning and my one Diet Dr Pepper at lunch, I try to stick to just water. Those big old cups that they give you at the hospital are magical though and I swear that they make you drink more water somehow! If I could magically clean itself, I think that I’d drink out of it all the time!
WEARING- T-shirts and sweats. Honestly I’m a little scared to try on my pre-pregnancy pants, even though I feel like I’ve lost quite a bit of my pregnancy weight the past two weeks, because of my c-section incision. But thankfully I have quite a bit of stretchy pants that I can wear which will definitely be a lifesaver!
PLANNING- A whole lot of nothing. The girls are still really tiny so we don’t want to really venture out and about with them until they put on some more weight and the doctor says that it’s ok. Thankfully my parents are coming in town for Thanksgiving so that’s one other thing that we don’t have to worry about planning for.
FEELING- Very tired! To help the girls gain weight we’re waking them up every 4 hours during the night which isn’t too bad, but it definitely means that we’re not sleeping through the night. Hopefully they bulk up some more so that we don’t have to keep on waking them up and can try and see how long they’ll sleep at night.
HOPING- That I can get the girls birth story post and maybe a travel post written soon! This has always been a great little outlet for me to document not only our travels but our life as well, and I love that I can look back on these posts and know what was going on at any point in time. I haven’t even started on the girls’ baby books, but I know that having these blog posts written will help me to write things in them later on.
LOVING- Our sweet girls! While the late nights are definitely tough, although to be honest there haven’t been too many of them, it definitely helps to see how absolutely adorable our girls are! Obviously I’m super biased because they’re my babies, but I can’t get over how cute they are and how much I love them! It’s still so surreal that they’ve already been here for 2 and a half weeks, and it’s still not even their due date yet!
Like I said, life right now isn’t too glamorous and it’s a whole lot of just hanging out around the house, but we’re loving it so much right now! We love getting to spend all of this time with our sweet girls, and get to know them, and of course get them all dressed up and decked out in bows!
