8 Days Old

Did I mention that I went back to school yesterday? So yes, I had major surgery that didn't go great, had two babies, brought them home and missed a grand total of four days of classes (Monday was a state holiday).

Pretty good, huh? Yesterday and today were not really full days since we had no afternoon classes, so I was only gone from 8-12 both mornings. Starting Monday, I will be back on basically an 8-3 schedule five days a week. I was a little worried that I would feel neglectful or depressed, but it wasn't too bad. Leaving the babies at home with their Dad and Grandmother is pretty comforting...

So far, they have been super babies! They really only cry when they need something, and have been sleeping for solid hour and a half blocks and eating on pretty much the same schedule. And I just want to cuddle with them non-stop;-). Sure, everything we own was covered in spit-up by Wednesday, but that is to be expected...

And we have done pretty good with rotating sleep and napping a lot. Again, having St. Mother in Law around has allowed us to nap during the day, which makes the overnight feedings a whole lot easier. The Boy is still off work next week, so he is gonna handle the overnight duties and sleep more during the day, and then when he goes back to work, his Mom will do the overnight shift for the next couple of weeks until school is over.

I guess that is all for now...I will post some pictures soon, I promise. How can I not...they are perfect!!!

And then we can start to get excited about Baby Big Sis' arrival in a couple weeks!!!

Ooooh!!! Pictures!!! I am glad to hear that so far the routine is going well. I am sure St. Mother in law is a wonderful person to have to help you, since she had twins herself :)
