A Moment to blog

16 Days old

  • In-laws were here for one week, so I have not read a blog since (I’m in total withdrawal) and will catch up with everyone in the early hours.
  • The in-law visit was a mixed bag, it was nice for them to see the babies, but, exhausting for me as they kept asking if they can feed the babies, resulting in me constantly saying NO NO No, trying to learn how to breastfeed when you have visitors is NOT fun. At. All.
  • Have lots to say about being an infertile mother, and how I find it difficult to chat aimlessly about the bowl movements of my children, ye know, they’re interesting but their pooh.. not so much.
  • Babies are doing great, getting big, Giraffe (girl) is 6.1 pounds and monkey is 5.8 pounds, and the doctor is happy that they are doing so well.
  • The DNA came back and they are officially genetically ours.
  • We met with the declaration of parentage lawyers and the papers are signed, the lawyers think that we can have the birth certificates by July (we plan on flying in July).

    Fantastic! I’m glad you are all doing so well. Enjoy!

    BTW – I’m not looking forward to the poo part either :)*

    Hooray! It all sounds great!

    Well, except for the in-laws. It can be difficult for people to understand that you need help caring for you, so that you can learn to care for your baby.

    So glad it’s going well – w/ the exception of the in-laws visit. 😉 But super awesome to hear that things are lovely and that Giraffe and Monkey are growing big! I’m super happy for you, love! xo

    I am glad all is well with you and the babies! It is such an exciting time, even if you aren’t sleeping much!

    So glad to hear all is well!! I think only breastfeeding mothers understand the private time needed/wanted for bf’ing.

    The babies sound like they are doing great. YOU are doing great! I think of you guys often. 🙂

    Thanks for the update! I can imagine how it would be challenging to get used to breastfeeding with in-laws around…

    The babies’ weights are great!!
