Today was my first official day alone with Thomas and Madelynn. Shannon did come home at lunch, but overall it was me and the babies. It has been difficult but also special. We have had lots of time together. The hardest part is when one is crying and I am nursing the other. It is so hard to hear them cry and try to calm them with words or a touch rather than being able to pick them up due to already having one in my hands. Needless to say, sometimes my tears come out as well. I know as each day passes I'll be able to cope with all that comes with having twins. The biggest thing though is the double blessing they do bring. Thomas and Maddy are angels....and I thank God each day for them! Please say a prayer for their appt on Wednesday as we will get a weight check and see that we are making progress. Thank you all for the prayers, emails, and comments of love and support! Blessings!
