We got to take Lyra home today, Lily seems to have missed her snuggling partner. I'm glad to have both of my babies home safe, eventually.
Maternity leave is going well, the babies are growing really fast. Not really sleeping too well though, Unfortunately when one wakes up and starts to cry that sets off the other one. Claude is helping as best he can, but he is such a heavy sleeper, that unless I wake him up, he is dead to the world.
I'm really tired, all these sleepless nights are starting to catch up with me, I nearly fell asleep this morning feeding Lyra.
Claude has been amazing, really supportive, He is always kissing and offering me massages. He even surprised me with a candlelit bath last night.
Claude is always playing and snuggling the girls, he is growing into a great Dad, It is great that he is handling it so well after his Dad disappearing when he was a baby. I don't know what I would do without him!
Claude was supposed to be going to some dumb football game with Dudley today, but after seeing how stressed I had become trying to cope in his absence, he sold his other ticket to another cop at the station, and packed me off to the spa for the day. It was a really unexpected treat, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I left my babies in the care of the only man I will ever trust.
On my way home from the spa, I passed that new "Buy and Bargain" place, went in and grabbed some birthday present for the twins, I spent way more than I should have done, but my babies are worth every penny. I even found a gorgeous new shirt for Claude.
Today it's the girls first birthday, we wanted to keep it low key because the past year has been so busy. We just feel lucky to have two healthy happy babies.
