Hello lovely readers! My babes are 13 weeks and I am finally writing a post about their birth.
… On Thursday morning we found out the babes were coming tomorrow, 26 July. They were ready to meet us and enter the world. Those 24 hours were an emotional journey and I see them as a labouring of sorts. You see, my babes were born via C-section. It was difficult for me to come to terms with the fact that I would not be able to deliver them naturally as my heart was set on birthing naturally since I was aware that I would one day have babies. To me, it was a fundamental part of my being a woman.
with your mind’s eye and your inner senses, mentally and emotionally feel yourself joyfully, totally aware and participating. see it as already accomplished. listen with your mind’s ear to that first sound of new life.
the life force of nature is working in harmony with you. now more than at any moment in your life, it is within you and with you. you are a part of the greatest celebration of life.“
With these thoughts in mind I was ready and full of excitement as the sun rose on their birth day. I think of that day and fill with emotion and wonder. My husband and mom were right by side supporting me. Meeting my babies, and finding out we had two little girls, was the most incredible moment of my life. We were so blessed that the babes were a good weight so they came straight to me and never left my side. The three days in hospital were a blur of new mama love and getting to know our two new family members.
And now I can’t believe they are 13 weeks already. I am looking forward to sharing tales of mamahood and twins with you.

“From the time they are born, our brothers and sisters are our collaborators and co-conspirators, our role models and cautionary tales. They are scolds, protectors, goads, tormentors, playmates, counselors, sources of envy, objects of pride. They teach us how to resolve conflicts and how not to; how to conduct friendships and when to walk away from them. Sisters teach brothers about the mysteries of girls; brothers teach sisters about the puzzle of boys. Our spouses arrive comparatively late in our lives; our parents eventually leave us. Our siblings may be the only people we’ll ever know who truly quality as partners for life.”
