I realize that I've been a big slacker in the blogging world lately. I am now 3 full weeks behind in my blog reading, and not doing very well in writing either. Life with twins is busy. That is an understatement! I have just a few minutes before I have to start getting ready to go to a wedding this afternoon, so thought I would share an 'awe' moment I had this past week.
The babies had Physical Therapy on Wednesday, their second PT appointment. I absolutely love the guy that works with them. He is AMAZING with babies. It is so fun to just watch him interact with them. The difference it has made in the past two weeks is undeniable. They both have torticollis, with Ayden mostly turning his head to the left and Rylee to the right. Apparently this is a twin thing due to the cramped space they had in utero. This has given them huge flat spots on the back of their heads. After just two appointments and doing some stretching exercises with them throughout the week, they are now able to turn both ways. We still have more work to do, but there is already such a marked improvement.
Driving home from their appointment this week, I looked in the backseat at both my babies. I had a moment. I was in awe of the fact that I ACTUALLY have babies. And they are mine. Okay, and Tony's too. It's still just so surreal that WE have a family. I can't help but be in awe of that. It still hits me, even (almost) 4 months later. Unbelievable.
We've been married over 16 years. We have been together for more than half my life. And now we have babies. It's such a different life, but one that I am loving every single day. I have babies. Can you believe it?
