Hunter & Jackson’s First Week at Home

Hi guys!

I’m still in a blur of lack of sleep and emotions following Hunter & Jackson’s arrival.   Did you see their first photos?  I’m going to take my time to write about their birth story and our hospital stay, but for now, I just wanted to drop in again to share a few more photos from our first days.

We had our first pediatrician visit Monday and the boys both were gaining back their weight and got the all clear for jaundice.  They looked particularly cute in their car seats!

All of our time has been spent cycling between feedings and napping.  They look like this quite a bit.

Over the weekend the Hubs family came to see the boys.  Here’s six out of nine of their grandchildren!

The Hubs Mom has been with us last week and is staying through this week to help.  She has been amazing and I don’t know what we would have done without her.

My Sister-in-law Megan brought her baby Keegan who was born just two short weeks before the twins.

It was so sweet to see them all together.  I know they will grow up great friends.

We’re slowly settling into being a family of five!

And yes, I still count Makena. 🙂

Life feels very surreal and very magical right now.   I’m trying to soak it all in and memorize the moments because I know this time is so fleeting.

I have a new holiday recipe for you coming up on Wednesday and more baby cuteness to come soon…


On a side note has anyone experienced post-partum nausea?  I’ve been fighting a wicked case and was wondering if anyone had the same problem and how long it lasted? 🙂

    Oh Julie! You are just glowing and the babies are more than precious. Congratulations. I’ll be praying and sending good thoughts your way. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids. Water is best but some ginger tea might help with the nausea.

    You maybe dehydrated causing nausea. Especially, if you are nursing the baby boys.

    Just a thought, take care your self!

    Oh, Julie, they are just precious! Glad to hear you all are settling in. Don’t be afraid to ask for help or support, especially if you are feeling overwhelmed. It is so normal! I hope the nausea passes soon.

    I left a comment on your Instagram page regarding the nausea. It usually is caused by hormones just like in the beginning. Breastfeeding can bring it on because as your milk comes in, your body releases oxytocin the same as when you were first pregnant. Your body is trying to readjust it’s hormone levels. Google it! It should tell you about it. But definitely let your dr. Know if you actually are throwing up. Hope that helps. I think some ginger tea would help! In love with the twins❤️

    Oh my goodness. I can not stand all the cuteness in these pictures. Life is never going to be the same for you guys—it will be so much more amazing! I never even had morning sickness with my two so not sure about the after birth nausea. Hopefully that will pass soon!
