In the spring of 2014 I found out I was pregnant with twins and started documenting my journey in a weekly post. I will be periodically posting these past writings, starting from the beginning. This was written January 5
We made it through the holidays and although carting the babies to and from so many places was difficult, having a roomful of hands to pass the babies around at every stop was a welcome relief. The babies have a lot of sweet cousins, aunts and uncles and of course the best grandparents anyone could ask for. We’re lucky to have everyone so close by. I would definitely have gone crazy by now if it wasn’t for a reprieve every now and then with their help.
From the beginning, everyone has said it will go by fast. Although time seems to be crawling by, just as they said, the babies seem to be growing up lightning fast. Today, they are now three months old! Of course they are still super tiny little babies but I’m watching their little bodies and brains morph out of helpless newborns and turn into little humans that do baby things. I’m not so sure I can even call them newborns anymore.
Lucy’s hair is still thick and dark and Karson’s peach fuzz is growing out into what should be a full head of hair in no time. I swear sometimes I hear them say or cry “Mama” but I know it’s just their babbling. They’ve started cooing and every once while I can get a little giggle. It’s extra rewarding now that they’re starting to recognize me and smile when they see me.
Karson still has the world’s best pouty lip when he cries. I keep trying to take a picture of it but when he’s crying he won’t hold still and then I feel bad that I’m letting him cry in an attempt to get a picture.
They both have long beautiful eyelashes that surround their blue, for now, eyes. I kiss their soft squishy cheeks about 6,347 times a day and have to resist taking a bite out of them. They’re just so perfect.
They’re starting to grasp hands while they breastfeed and every once in a while they’ll give each other a funny look. I can’t wait for them to start playing with each other.
It’s only been a quarter of a year but I feel like I’ve known them forever. They’re so little but they hold my whole heart. I could stare at them all day long and I love them so much.
