So we're settled in here. KC had to leave on Tuesday so we enjoyed having him here for a couple days. We got to be a part of my niece Penny's blessing. It was so fun to have everyone together. Crazy, but fun. Penny, who I just met for the first time, it such a gorgeous little baby. It was only a short time ago that my babies were even smaller than that, and it baffles my mind. They are quite large now and noticeably so. It makes me so happy to see how big and healthy and happy my babies are. You'd never guess they were preemies.
Speaking of smaller baby times, I keep having flashbacks of last time I was here at Christmas. How things have changed! I was remembering how hard the babies were and how many people it took to keep them consoled around the clock. The willingness of all those who took time to help with my then chaotic life will never be forgotten. Friends and relatives I hadn't talked to for years came out of the wood works to take day shifts and night shifts to be a baby holder/feeder, or so I could have a moment of freedom, or sleep for those few glorious hours. And of course both of our families were always there for me whenever I needed them. It really was a hard hard time, but it's because of all these people that I was able to remember it with fondness also. And I think my babies are better babies because of all the love they get from everyone in their lives. It almost makes me feel guilty having to take people away from what they had going on in their lives, but it was for the babies' well being and I will always tell the babies how loved they were and how many people cared.
That's it for now. Pictures and videos to come. I'm so glad we're here.
