One week

This is going to sound so cliché, but I can't believe it's been a week since I finally gave up Sideshow Bob status and had the Twinks! It has been an amazing, amazing week with our THREE children (I can *almost* justify doing a roll call). My top few observations since having the babes?

1) If you can opt out of a c-section DO IT. Mine wasn't 100% medically necessary but it wasn't completely elective either. I could've pushed (bahahaha) not to have one, but because I knew the risks with ID twins and also because of my inevitable need to get rid of my cyst-ridden left ovary, I decided to go with the c-section. BAD DECISION! Worst of 2010 so far! I really should know better. Because I don't tolerate n.arcotics well, I don't take them and the "breakthrough pain" was almost unbearable in the two days following the boys' arrival. Plus the sheer madness of having two tiny babies and wanting to change them and swaddle them and generally be a complete control freak (who, moi?) about their care is totally hindered by your inability to even get out of bed. Ask Mr. K. He had to endure this conversation over and over.

Me: Babe, I want them to wear these other blue hats. They're in the inside left pocket of the polka dot diaper bag.

Mr. K: These?

Me: No. Those are blue bear hats. I want the plain ones.

Mr. K: How about this one?

Me: No! They're just PLAIN BLUE. They're preemie size. LEFT. INSIDE. POCKET.

OTHER.

LEFT.

Mr. K: I can't find them, I'm just going to use the hospital hats.

Me: Nooooo! I don't like those hats! Not for pictures!

Mr. K: Who cares! They're warm!

Me: So are the ones I brought. Oh wait! They're in the other bag. Okay so go into the inside pocket of the black bag...

2) Twins are freaking awesome. It's really that simple.

3) Just because your nurse calls you "Sugar" and "Sweetie" and talks to you with a baby voice does not mean she actually dosed you with the correct meds, or actually, any meds at all. So be like me and bring your own damn A.dvil and T.ylenol.

And now because I am paying a doula so I can sleep, I better get to it. But to make up for brevity of my post, I leave you with this.

Only my third slideshow in almost two years of blogging. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed living it. I just have to say it again...I LOVE my precious little Twinks. They are an absolute miracle.

MissMVK, congratulations again! ;) I'm sorry that your experience with the csection/nurses wasn't very good, but I am so glad everything went well, and your babies did well also. I was praying for no trips to the NICU! Your family is beautiful, and it has been such a priviledge to be able to go on this special journey with you.

Big Brother looks like a proud little man also! ;)

Congratulations!!! It brought tears to my eyes watching your slideshow. They are adorable... your entire family for that matter!

I'm so happy to see everyone is doing so well.... especially Piglet! :-)

BTW... you look marvelous in the hospital. Love the hospital gown!

Okay, that is way too cute. Your family is beautiful! I couldn't agree with you more about the c-sections... after 2 required c's, I can't for the life of my figure out why anyone would choose to have one without a huge reason to do so. Blech.

I am so glad you posted!! I have been thinking about you constantly, wondering how you and The Twinks are doing, but I didn't want to bother you. Loved the slideshow -- they are ADORABLE. What a gorgeous family you have!!

But you have scared me about the C-section. *gulp* I don't remember my last one being too bad... *double gulp*

Brock and Shana said...

Love the slideshow! They are soooooooooo identical! That pic of them each stretching the mirror image leg of the other is funny! Congrats!

I can't even believe mine are 6 months old already and really developing their own personalities! I LOVE this slideshow!!! What is the song you used? CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

Brian said...
