Okay – so I can’t believe its been months since my last post. I mean literally, it has been months! But I have a really Gooooood Excuse – Life got a little bit busy for me! No seriously, it did!!!
Let’s see, I mentioned in the last post that I was expecting boy/girl twins. And well, shortly after my last post on here, I was put on bed rest until then end of my pregnancy. I was laid up, flat not able to do anything, go anywhere, or drive on my my own laid up! I had to let the babies grow, I was cut off from pretty much doing anything! They were doing great, but as for me – they took everything from me – so I didn’t mind the extra rest (my body really required) to cook these little ones. It was miserable, I was tired a lot, no really A LOT, and I had no ability to really do anything.
Okay so enough of that!
The TWINS have arrived after carrying them for 37 weeks and 6 days (so almost 38 weeks), I can’t believe I made it that long! it was tough, I was BIG BIG BIG (did I mention miserable?).
I delivered via c-section, and spent 5 long days in the hospital. We came home on a Friday afternoon, and have been home for a few weeks now adjusting, and healing. The dust is settling, and I am starting to get back to being my old self, and working on things within the store, blogging, wholesaling, etc.
Sooooooo without further ado… I’d like to announce the birth of my TWINS.
Lilliana Rose and Elias Beau – OR Lilly and Eli for short! Born June 2nd, at 9:10 and and 9:11am. Both weighed approx 6 pounds 14 oz each – yes, the exact same weight. Eli was 18 and 3/4 inches long, and Lilly was 18 1/2. Because I’m their momma, you know that are practically perfect in every way.
We’re adjusting at home, and hope to share with you my journey of not only a jewelry maker’s life, but also the life of raising Twins and a Toddler!
