The pain, frustration, and wrench it throws in my day-to-day is tough and so I've been more focused on trying to be as present to the boys as possible as not to focus on how much I'm hurting. And, since I hurt when I stand, sit, lay down, etc this blog post is going to be all over the place because that's what pain does to my brain + la Instagram photos to keep me on track on sharing a mini update.
The boys are both napping now (All the little gifts are so very appreciated these days!), and I've been sneaking some snacks from the fridge. A snack I had no idea existed till yesterday - cotton candy grapes!
People, did you know about these? If not, go get you some! They smell like cotton candy! Really really! Annnnnd, they taste like cotton candy! It's a trip to the carnival with every little bite you take! So amazing! My boys even smell like cotton candy after eating them. My husband randomly bought them yesterday while grabbing some fruit at Central Market and Viola! we have tasted joy!
Other than the back pain, I've been able to see a few friends this week which has been such a gift (as always!). And the boys are really just getting cuter and cuter together by the day. I really am loving watching them grow into their brotherhood. It's kind of amazing and all kinds of beautiful.
They seem to be enjoying each other more and more. Talking to each other more. Playing with each other more instead of at each other. They seem in-tune with each other's moves (Except when they bonk heads and/or their body to give each other bumps, bruises, and tears.). So thankful for them. So very thankful.
|Ha. One is newly forward-facing and the other got a new big boy seat complete with two cup holders.|
Hope to be posting again soon. I've actually taken my fancy camera out a few times this week to capture some non-phone-camera pictures. I hope to share them along with an update of the boys and what they're up to these days in the developmental realm. Also have some recipes to share, saint love to ponder, breastfeeding tips to share, and other things floating around in my little noggin.
Praying for healing in the pain department. Is there anything I can offer up for you all during my little stent of suffering? Please share! Also, if you have any tips on how to remedy the lower back problems that are mine, I am *all* eyes/ears (if you have my digits!). Gracias!
