An update in pictures, Instagram, and plans to run

“Sleep when they’re sleeping!” is what we’re told. But when would we actually do anything else?! These boys are a lot of work and they are worth every drop of sweat, tears, and blood. (Don’t worry, there is really no blood.)

As a (wannabe) writer, sometimes you must make sacrifices in order to get the words onto the page. Gotta capitalize when the opportunity strikes! I’ll try to be brief… key word, “try.”

So I am trying something new with my posts… I will just upload a bunch of pictures, add captions, and hopefully that’ll be enough story-telling for ya! The pics may be in a weird order though. Whoops.

By the way, did you notice my new Instagram widget on my blog? You can see the pictures I upload to IG (<– already using nicknames!) either on the right of the screen if you’re viewing from a desktop or on the bottom if you are viewing from your smartphone. I am SOOO with the times! (Maybe a little too with it… I feel like I’ve been posting like crazy, but I just got so excited because I finally saw what the craze was about. I even used my first HASHTAG the other day. I used to raise an eyebrow when I’d see posts #justlikethis or #evenmorelikethisone. But here I am, starting my own with #thedeleontwins :).

Why yes, that is chocolate cake at 4 am... don't judge me!

It's so fun having the boys spend time next to each other. Now if only they could acknowledge each other...

Fantabulous diaper cakes from Auntie Aur & Uncle Tim! They spent some great QT with the boys:)

Love these Rock N Plays. They keep the boys snug and they can take really long naps in them!

"Now throw ya hands up!" It's so cute to see how the boys end up during their naps.

Our first walk in the neighborhood! The boys did great - we lasted about half an hour;)

Are things getting easier? Hmm… hard to say yes. It’s more like we are getting used to things, learning more about the boys, and trying to anticipate their needs better. But already the boys are looking older. We see creases in their little bodies indicating they are getting chubbier! Their faces are fuller. They are more alert and really follow movement and sound with their eyes. They are getting stronger! Diaper changes are getting tricky as they kick and squirm, arch their backs and lock their knees. Still loving the little sounds and grunts they make. Precious little things they are.

On one last note… I can’t wait to get back into running! I know I will be SUPER winded, but I have just seriously been looking forward to getting back out there. I felt like I had just gotten into running right before I got put onto bed rest. I think about it often, especially as I read my favorite running blogs (Hungry Runner Girl, Skinny Runner, STUFT Mama). I am aiming to participate in the Elk Grove 5K fun run in October. This Thursday will mark 6 weeks since I gave birth, so I will finally be able to start working out again. I’ll have to set myself up a nice little schedule to ease back into getting in shape. Bed rest has made me so weak!

  1. I love seeing your posts–whether blogs, Instagrams or FB updates! How you find the time to even post is amazing because if it were me, I’d be scrambling to even remember where my phone is! (I’m saying that because I do that often now–it drives Will crazy, lol–so I know that’ll def happen when I’m mom!) Anyway, the two are growing so well and they look adorable! I will meet them soon enough. Sorry last weekend didn’t work out for us and I’m trying to find a time where Will isn’t working. In time Deleon twins! ๐Ÿ™‚
