I am a first time mom of twin girls. I am currently a stay at home mom. They were born in August 2012. That year my husband took a job eight hours from our home in Houston. So we moved when the girls were four months old. Since their birth we have faced challenges such with Medical conditions, being out on our own away from all of our family, and remodeling a 50 year old house.
The medical challenges we have faced have included: Prematurity, NICU, Torticollis, Plagiocephaly, Bronchiocephaly, Physical Therapy, Doc Band Helmets, RSV, Pneumonia three times, Ear infections which has led to tubes, Glasses, and the Eternovirus D-68.
In January 2016 our family will grow even more with our newest child, our first son, Mason. We are very excited for the new journey. Not only is this pregnancy a singleton but it’s also our first boy. Every bit of this will be a new adventure for all of us and we are all very excited about the newest addition.
In the few yeas since we had the girls, we have faced several ups and downs and have come out strong with our family and faith. It is not easy raising two children at one time. No, it is not like having two close together as many people believe. Twins as any other multiples are a different way of parenting, something that most, like myself, are not prepared for. Which is why I have created this blog. I want other moms and dads to know that they are not alone in this. Many of the issues we have faced have been common in multiples. I did not personally have anyone to ask questions to about my girls. I relied on resources from the internet. So I hope that my blog can help others in our situation and make them feel like they are not alone. Maybe I can even help them with any of the issues that they may face as a new parent of multiples.
Good Luck and God Bless. Feel free to comment or send me a message with any questions or topics you would like me to discuss.
