It's been about a month since my last post, but this time there's an excellent reason - four weeks ago, the twins decided to make an early appearance! In the middle of the night, of course, because that's when all the chaos and drama always happens, right? Despite being two months early, they are doing extremely well, and should be coming home this week or next. (Cue the "oh god, what have I done" panic now.)
For privacy reasons, I'm not going to share too many details, but I will say that both girls share a name with strong female fictional characters I admire and appreciate. (I don't want to say "named after", as that's a little intense, and Mr. Landen probably doesn't have the same connection to those characters as I do...instead, I say their names are "inspired by". ;) ) And when I say "strong", I don't necessarily mean physically, though both can hold their own in a fight - they're also confident, passionate, determined women who stand up for what's right. I don't think me finding those traits admirable means I'm setting the bar too high or putting too much pressure on my new daughters. At least I hope not....
Anyway, I obviously haven't written anything in a while. I'm filled with IDEAS! and I swear I will put them down on paper (or type them in a document, rather) eventually. For now, though, I'll be letting something else prevent me from falling asleep at night.
Happy Mother's Day!
