I'm not ready to write the birth story but wanted to share some pictures and some details!
Things are going well so far. After five days in the hospital, I've had five nights at home with my little superstars and my mom's help. My original plan to keep them in their bassinets next to my bed hasn't worked out so the three of us are spending our evenings in the family room with them sleeping in the Pack N Play, swing, or bouncy seat and me sleeping on the sofa. It turned out to be easier to physically get up with them, nurse them, feed them a formula supplement (they dropped just under 5 pounds since the births) and change them from this one room that is open to the kitchen rather than gather all the supplies and do it all upstairs in my room and the nursery. I do miss my bed though so I will attempt the bassinets again soon - especially since I am feeling so much better physically and am more able to get in and out of bed now than I was five nights ago.
And I'm in love!! Athough I went through some unexpected complications for the births, the reward was so worth it!
