Last Sunday my husband and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary. We celebrated by spending the day at the hospital and going out for a nice dinner afterward. Honestly it was the best anniversary I could have asked for and so surreal that in one year we already have become a family of four, and we couldn't be happier. Looking forward to so many more anniversaries to come!
Now onto the important part... our twin baby girls!!
Our little Rosie hit 4 lbs. the other day. She's been maintaining her temperature in the crib and is starting to nurse just a little. She's trying her hardest to figure out how to suck and swallow and breathe and is doing better every day!
Reilly is gaining rapidly too, up to 3 lb. 5 oz! An entire pound above her birth weight! Yesterday, she too got to come out of her isolate. They put a little heater above her because she was starting to drop her temperature, but she came back up a lot while I was holding her. Hoping to see her still in the crib when I go to see her today!
I know they're certainly not ready to come home yet, but each milestone is a step closer, and I'm learning to celebrate each one along the way.
So, yep, that's pretty much it. Sort of disappointing not to have one vacation, outdoor activity, or exotic summer beverage on my list of highlights, but I'm going to make it my goal to slowly get back to society and all those trivial little joys that used to rule my Instagram feed. Here's to Monday, the perfect day to start what's left of summer and savor every moment.... even in the hospital ;)
