Barely having any time from this adventure to the next (getting the boat out for charter this week), I know I need to at least check in and share that everyone is healthy and doing great! So to save time in recounting all the gory details, here are some photos from the amazing past week:
Ummm, yeah. This was taken the day my water broke. Enough said. Anyone wonder why I was a wee bit grumpy by 7pm every day in the last few weeks of pregnancy? Amazingly, Brock had the patience to deal with me every single time ~ not once did he lose his cool or his compassion.
The little twerps are absolutely perfect and wonderful. I went a solid 62 hours with only 4 scattered hours of sleep (a record for me, I think) and discovered that after that length of time, you no longer believe you even need sleep. Adrenaline and Mother Nature are incredible things. Babies went home with their family on Friday at 4pm and yes, I’m doing just fine with that. Many people were worried that I would have trouble “giving them up,” but truly, they were never mine. They went home with the family to which they belonged (and honestly, having my freedom and my body back with no more sleepless nights is not a bad thing!).
My own babies came to visit in the hospital, which was very cool. SB was impressed with how little they were, but other than that, I think we’re all looking forward to some Non-Pregnant Mama.
Now it’s all about scrubbing the boat and making sure everything is ready for KJ to go out this week. The diver has already been here and inspected the hull which is in great shape and ready to go. I’m trying not to do too much and having my crew of friends here again yesterday was a huge help in accomplishing that. Must remember to rest occasionally!
Thank you for all the good wishes and love that have been sent our way!
