I can't even explain how thankful I am for the family that I have been given. My new babies of course, are the most precious, innocent, little, creatures ever. My Munchkin has been adapting so well to all of the changes, that it's almost scary. She loves her little sisters. Anytime someone comes for a visit, she insists on showing them off. She has been helpful, and loving. She is so good, it makes me feel guilty for not having as much time to spend with her.

Hubby continues to hold his own in this crazy house of hormones. He's been working all day and getting up with me most nights, to help with the feedings. Little Mary Kate had to have a small procedure done that required a night in the hospital. He volunteered to stay there with her so I didn't have to spend another night in the confines of a hospital room.

My Mom has been, and continues to be the biggest help. Dropping anything she has going on to help me in any way I need. She has kept the kids, cleaned my house, done my laundry and been a great source of support for us during this time. There is nothing I can do, say, or buy that can express my gratitude for her.

I'm so thankful for my bitches. They have been such a huge help to me. They went all out and cooked us a full on Thanksgiving meal, complete with the best damn turkey I've ever had. No lie. They knew that the one thing I wanted when I got out of the hospital was a good home cooked meal. They have taken care of my child, checked in on me daily, visited me in the hospital, and the babies in the NICU (and that's not easy.) I love them and appreciate them immensely.

I'm thankful to be a part of the "Best Damn Moms Group Evah!" They have been providing us with meals for the past two weeks. Combined with Hubby's office, I haven't had to shop for groceries or cook since I've been home.

My new life my be crazy and hectic, but I'm starting to get the hang of it, and I think I like it.

What a nice post. It truly reminded me of all the things I should be thankful for on a day to day basis! You are so lucky to have all that support. Congrats on Mary Kate and Ashley, they are beautiful gifts from God.

I am so glad to hear that everything is going so well.

I can't wait to meet the girls!

That is wonderful that your hubby helps you and went and stayed in the hospital so you didn't.

I'm also glad that your mom helps you. I can't imagine how hard it must be with twins. I only have one and it gets hard having a toddler. But she's like me when I was 4 and wanted all the attention..

Hopefully the upcoming months and years are good for you. Hopefully they are nice and let you eventually get some sleep.

I think a chaotic life is a full life.
Just remember if you meet my husband, three kids is a piece of cake. Just like having one. I really want another baby. He is not so convinced.
