Happy New Year and Bye Bye Maternity Leave

That's a lot of kids. Happy new year IG!

I snapped this yesterday (new year’s day!) and it hit me as it sometimes does randomly – wow, I have a LOT OF KIDS!

2012 will forever be blazed into my memory as the year of change.  The year we did IVF, got pregnant with twins, MOVED to our current (dream) home, had said twins, that we watched Jasper become a big brother and that Jeff and I became the parents of 3 children. I’d call that a banner year if there ever was one!

And now I sit here wondering what in the world 2013 will have in store, and I can actually BLOG about my musings because I am back at work after my 3 month maternity leave.

I honestly thought I’d be THRILLED to some extent to rejoin the land of adults, where I don’t have to soothe/feed/change/burp or otherwise be attached to one if not two tiny humans 24/7 but I miss my girls.  And it doesn’t help at all that my mom just called and said that Sasha is refusing to take a bottle :( Damned if that girl isn’t Jasper II. She even looks exactly (I mean EXACTLY ) like Jasper at that age (more on that in another post!)

I am going to go home right now on my lunch hour to feed them so can’t write more, but I had to take a minute to write something to document this milestone – even though it’s a sad one…
