I try to get home every night to see the babies for a bit and help put them to bed (I am successful 99% of the time). I am so lucky to have my DH who picks them up from daycare everyday, plays with them, makes and cleans bottles and gets them in their pjs…yes, I know, incredible, and he loves every minute of it. Once the babies go down, I cannot wait for morning so that I can see them again, I got the feeling last night that every morning is like xmas, I have the most amazing people in my life.
Both of the babies are crawling like maniacs. Sugar started about 5 weeks ago but it was a dragging herself around the floor kind of thing, now she is up on her hands and knees. Spice started a bit before their 9 month b-day, prior to that he was rocking and scooting backwards, so cute. They are both babbling like crazy but Spice is also trying to say “cat” – so cute – it comes out like a hard g or c sound. I showed him my breakfast today – cookie and coffee – and he loved it.
They have both been sick – with a virus that inevitably turned into ear infections but also gave them a terrible rash all over their face and bodies. Sugar’s is gone but I call Spice my speckled xmas elf.
I am trying very hard to focus on the positives in my life – there are so many – and it makes for much better living. One of my favorite bloggers Kate was talking about non-stop fear in one of her posts and I can relate to that. When I feel like that, I make decisions based on those feelings. It is like a pebble in a windshield, the cracks spreading and spreading and spreading.
Also – would like to say to lastchanceivf – I read all of your posts, hugs to you, keep your head up, you are amazing.
