Hey friends!!!! How are you all doing? Boy, have I missed you! It’s been a seriously long time since I’ve blogged, I know! After the birth of the babies, life got crazy (in a good way!) and blogging was put on the back burner. Taking care of two babies is no easy task; however, I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. Our lives have completely changed for the better. I love being a mom and although it’s hard work, it’s totally worth it when you see those adorable smiling faces looking back at you.
Well, if you can believe it, Gianna and Isaac turned 6 months old this past Thursday! Wow, has the time flown by! They’re both doing amazingly well and growing fast so fast. Their little personalities are certainly making themselves known and it’s fun to watch them reach certain milestones.
Isaac is definitely our laid back baby. He loves cuddling and being held. He’s our happy little man – easy to please and smiling often. He loves playing with his toys, eating rice cereal, playing in his exersaucer, studying his hands, giggling and loves when daddy sings to him.
Gianna is our little spitfire. She has quite the attitude and is very inquisitive, always observing and curious about her surroundings. She loves grabbing her feet, covering her face with her blanket, talking, playing on her play mat, bath time and going for walks in the stroller.
I’m doing great…FINALLY! Recovery from a c-section is no joke! I definitely underestimated how I’d be feeling, and with a few added complications, I had a rough recovery. BUT, I’m happy to put that all behind me because now I’m feeling back to my old self. At 6 weeks postpartum, I was able to resume all normal activity. It was such a great day when I walked out of the doctor’s office with a clean bill of health.
Since then, I’ve started to incorporate physical activity back into my routine again. Although, I worked out through the majority of my pregnancy, I was quite limited in what I could do, so getting back into my usual exercise routine has been amazing. Boy, how I missed it!
With the start of the New Year, I was looking for a way to challenge myself psychically and get back into shape, so I joined a challenge group with Sarah @ Creating a Better Tomorrow (a fellow twin mom!) as our coach. I started the Insanity Max:30 program at the beginning of January, finished it 60 days later and successfully shed the baby weight (more about the program at a later date). This connection with Sarah, the challenge group and the program led me to take part in a new endeavor, which I’m excited to share with you in the very near future, so stay tuned. :-)
In addition, I’m back to work and have been for exactly a month today. After being on maternity leave for 6 months and being with the babes for so long, going back to work was SO hard. It was definitely a difficult transition – lets just say, they took it better than mommy did. They’re doing well at daycare; although, picking up every germ known to mankind, but I keep tell myself that that will just build their immune system for when they start school. Anyway, it’s still super difficult to be away from them all day, but I’m taking it day by day. I know they’re in good hands, so that certainly eases my mind. So, that’s where I’m at these days. Life is good!
AND, I’m going to end it hear in the interest of not writing a book, so I’ll see you all later!
Ahhhh…I’m so pumped to be back!
So, update me on your life – what’s new? – what have I missed?
