As expected, blogging has taken a very far back seat to the goings-on in my life. It’s amazing how two little people can require so much work. I am sure mothers of one baby say the same.
Things have been going fairly smoothly so far mostly because I haven’t been alone. Mr. BKL had to return to work last week, and my Mom was fortunate enough to take two weeks off from her own job (and her life!) to come help us. I will be forever grateful. I also get to see just how lucky the babes are to have such an amazing Grandma in their life. She seems to love them as much as I do if that’s possible.
I thought I would write up a summation of my life the past 3 weeks with some numbers.
Pounds gained during pregnancy: 53 (7 of which came in the last week alone, a side effect of the pre-eclampsia)
Pounds lost by 12 days post partum: 40 (in other words, I had retained a LOT of water)
Pounds away from pre-pregnancy weight: 10
Beers consumed: Just enough to keep me sane and not enough to interfere with feeding. It’s a tricky balance.
Diapers changed in a day: 16+
Loads of baby laundry each day: 1-2
Doctors visits for the babies: 5
Feedings per 24 hours: 7-8
And now for some gratuitous baby photos….
