Life with Twins

You can probably tell by my lack of posts that life with twins and a toddler doesn't leave you with a whole lot of free time. ;-)
I've got posts in the works, I promise, but today I just wanted to share some pictures of what life has been like at home.

Heading home to big brother last week!

Double the babies, double the feedings. Big brother had to help out. 

I forgot how much newborns sleep!! (during the day, ha!!)

Like I said....

But all that napping leaves plenty of time with this guy.

Speaking of this guy, he's doing really well with the new babies. We're trying to keep things as normal as possible for him and this has helped a lot. I've seen a tad bit of jealousy, but I involve him in things as much as I can and spend some time with just him so he doesn't feel left out. 
Overall, he's really doing great and loves the twins.

Our first picture as a family of FIVE!
(Hudson's mouth was full of grapes!)

And a little update on me...I'm recovering really well and feel really good! Can I just say...I am LOVING not being pregnant anymore!! Just keepin' it real. No more waddling, shortness of breath, or acid reflux. *cue Hallelujah chorus* I had a wonderful, pleasant pregnancy but it got pretty miserable in the last few weeks.

I'm 8 days postpartum and have said goodbye to 30 pounds.
The pic on the left was taken at 35 weeks(that last bump pic I took), the one on the right was taken this morning.
The belly goes down a little more every day. I keep reminding myself it doesn't happen overnight, especially after housing TWO babies in there.

Joseph went back to work today and it's a little hard on me. His help has been invaluable and we've been able to bond as a family with our new additions so it's hard to see him go. He's seriously the best daddy ever! Thankfully, I've got my mom here to help and she's been amazing. There's no way we'd make it without her help.

I'm sure I'll get back into the swing of posting soon and I'll share some more details, our day to day routine, etc. Right now, we're adjusting to less sleep, getting to know the personalities of our new little ones, and enjoying the bonding time. Following me on Instagram (larpuckett) is the best way to keep up with me right now. :)

Happy Tuesday!


  1. Am I seeing double? (Does that joke get old?) Oh my cuteness! I love how the first family picture is in Alabama attire! Gotta raise 'em right I say.

  3. Love all the pictures... all 3 of your babies are adorable!

  4. Love that Bama family pic! The babes are precious. And I adore your shirt!! :)

  5. You look great, girl! Those babies are just precious. I'm sure Hudson is a big helper.
