It was an extremely busy day today and it will continue to be so until our departure. Believe it or not - the idea of departing is starting to enter conversation although I do not think it will happen for a number of weeks - likely around the time of my actual due date - October 6. Either way, it is exciting that it is being discussed - quite surreal, but definitely exciting!
So for the upcoming weeks, I have been put on a very tight schedule. Shay and Ciaran are not being fed every three hours on a staggered schedule. This means that I attempt feeding Shay at 11:00, 2:00, 5:00, etc., and Ciaran 12:00, 3:00, 6:00....The hour that I have in between is spent pumping and grabbing a quick bite to eat.
Today we also managed to get the two boys bathed during their busy schedule. Cris got off a little bit early today and came in to bathe both boys. He did a wonderful job - getting more and more comfortable with handling every day. Ciaran and Shay both love having baths - it will surely be a tool to keep them settled once we get them home. I was able to snap a few pics of Shay being bathed, unfortunately, when it was Ciaran's turn - I was feeding Shay and hence was unable to get pictures. I will post them later...
Left the hospital completely exhausted today - got home around 8:00 and went straight to bed. I think that they are beginning to train us for the reality that is coming our way in the upcoming months...I can handle feeling exhausted if it means that they are coming home...I sooo can't wait to get them home!
That is all for today. Hope everyone is well!
cris, liza, ciaran and shay
