Life with Two
Then there were my friends. As soon as my mom left, they were there. Seriously, on the first day that I was alone with the girls I talked to four or five friends who were calling me to help get me out of the house, or just see how I was. It was awesome. I have to give a special shout out to Katie who, seemed to be especially watching out for me and is always doing her best to get us out of the house or just talking me down from the crazies. I have such a great group of friends and I am seriously so blessed to have them.
Of course there is Adam. I'm not going to lie, the first two weeks were very hard on me emotionally and I always...without fail, take my emotional breakdowns out on him. Nobody loves me more, nobody loves me better than him and so I think it's easy to kind of beat him up because I know how much he loves me. It's pretty messed up, I'll admit it. Adam has been SUPER busy with the start of the school year and his last semester of school but he's always taken time for the two of us. He also takes time for each of the girls. right now he and Paige are sleeping on the couch and it is probably the sweetest thing I've seen all day (BTW, strangest thing I've seen today was Hannah taking off her shirt to "feed baby Paige" and then lean in for the feed...).
Finally, I realize that both times I've had my babies I've felt like there are angels present in my home ushering them into the world. It's a sacred experience (minus all the yelling and emotions) and I've felt very close to the spirit. I'm pretty confidant that my girls are being watched out for during this life transition, I don't think they would have been sent to me without someone watching out for our little family.
I've talked a lot about my emotional crazies...I really am fine now. The first week and a half was pretty rough but I'm doing so much better now that all our visitors are gone and Adam is back to work. I really feel like I'm getting a hang of everything.
And then I have this...
