In the grand scheme of parenthood, I haven’t been a mother all that long. None the less, I have been through more firsts in the past 6 months than I have ever been through before. In no particular order, here are 25 things I’ve learned or realized since giving birth;
Today is my actual due date; January 6, 2018; and instead of anticipating the twin’s arrival, tomorrow they will be one month old!
What a WHIRLWIND this past month has been. It feels like it flew by, yet I remember each night, feeling like that feeding would NEVER end. Nights and days all mesh into one, but maybe that’s only because you don’t get an actual night’s sleep to differentiate the two
