Though I be little I be fierce.... I forget how little these two where. They were born strong and continue to be fiercely opinionated strong toddlers.whoever knew something so small could take up so much room in a heart.

This is a big jump from being 3lbs. They are now the size of a regular newborn baby. It's crazy that they weigh what Cameron did at birth and they are 3 months old. hello 0 to 3 month clothes goodbye preemie and newborn clothes. #twinlife #twinstagram #twingirls #twinmom #twinning #twinsies #fraternaltwins #twinsofinstagram #momoftwins #momlife #motherhoodunfiltered #instatwins #twinlove #twinsandmultiples #happylife #blackmomsblogs #momof7 #familyof9 #doubleisthenewbubble #mixedbabiesig #wmbw #preemies #33weekers

So much of my life as a parent (especially this time around, while I’m working less) involves hanging around the house all day, letting the afternoon slip by, before frantically getting organised and herding everyone out of the house at 3:30 or 4 in the afternoon. And today was textbook: at about 3:39 we realised the girls hadn’t been on an excursion since I took them to the post box on the corner of my parents’ street two days ago (they have a big back garden and we had gone over to the neighbours’ house too - it’s not as bad as it sounds). So we walked to the beach, less than ten minutes from my parents’ house - and after a slow start, we had an absolutely delightful afternoon. The water was warm, the girls loved it, another family lent us a bucket to make sandcastles, the weather was perfect. We salvaged a totally unremarkable day with a perfect excursion.

Happy 7 months to these two little bundles!!!
.
It's been a crazy, fun, exciting, hard, exhausting, and rewarding seven months with these girlies. We're so grateful for how far they've come. God has been so faithful and loving through it all.

Love our girlies! 😍😍😍

“The morning it all came about…chilly morning in September. I woke up at 5:30 like I did every morning to get ready for work. My sheets were soaked. I thought I had peed myself. Or that something awful was happening. I look down and it looks like someone dumped a bucket of water everywhere. What the heck? I was only 27 weeks along. Is my water really breaking? Surely not. It was like a human waterfall y’all. Yeah this was happening. I call my husband, who was in the field again. He has GREAT timing with these things right?! So I immediately call the essentials…my mom and mother-in-law. I tell my sister [who was living with us at the time] that a friend of mine was coming to pick me up and take me to the hospital so she needed to stay back with our daughter.

We get to L&D and the nurse acted like I was crazy for insinuating that my water had in fact broken. I’m pretty sure it’s evident when your water breaks?! Moving on…so they had me admitted and gave me the steroids to help with the development of his lungs and other meds to help keep me from going into labor. After being there for a few hours, my husband was able to get there. Huge breath of relieve to have my person there with me. The hospital we were in was not properly equipped with a NICU and antepartum unit, so we were transferred to another hospital about 40 minutes away.”

Dinner, earlier: Apple, banana, avocado puree. They all eat avocado just fine when it's disguised!! 😂🥑🍌🍏❤️
Someone recently asked where I get my recipes. Tiny Gourmet! It's a great site.
Though I also think it's totally fine to just throw ingredients together. It's like making smoothies; if it sounds good, it probably is. I always sample their food first to make sure it passes my yum test.

Today, the boys and I went on an hour walk on our street. It was a hot one but was thankful to actually get outside with them. They obviously enjoyed it. Also so thankful for their fans! #TheGoldenNuggets #twinmom #twinboys #preemies

"My son was born at 23 weeks and 3 days and weighed 15oz. He was born 8/9/18. We have a long road ahead of us. I had him here at Mary birch. I am a single mommy and this has been one of the most difficult experiences ever. I enjoy reading and seeing these success stories. It gives me a lot of hope for my son"

Congratulations @lexlunar7 thank you for sharing. The preemie community is right behind you, cheering you both on and praying for a smooth journey. •

One year ago today Cecelia’s bag of waters broke which led us on a 6 week hospital bed rest and eventually an early delivery at 31 weeks. I can’t believe how much has happened since that day! We are grateful for our family and know not all families have the same outcome. Babies will be 1 next month! #love #twins #preemies #twinmama #timeflys

"From 1lb 8oz to over 13lbs. Born at 23 weeks and 5 days, our sweet boy is now 7 months. I’ve never met a more amazing human in my life! Harrison had a grade 4 brain bleed at birth, got NEC (an awful infection that is common in preemies that is often fatal) around 3 weeks in and “shouldn’t be here” according to some doctors and now is rocking Short Gut Syndrome as a result, had stage 4 ROP that required laser eye surgery, and had two follow up abdominal surgeries to correct his intestine. He spent 173 days in the NICU and we never thought he’d come home. He’s right on track with growth and development for his corrected age (3 months). The nearly 6 months we spent in the NICU were some of the hardest months ever, but now that we’re home, they are all but a small memory. Harrison is our greatest gift and we are so grateful that he is ours. We are so incredibly proud of him and love him more than he’ll ever know!"

"Nyrell was born on March 31st, 2018 at 27 weeks gestation weighing just 1lb 11.5oz. He was proving to be a very strong little guy as he fought a very long battle against Chronic Lung Disease and Pulmonary Hypertension. Nyrell spent his whole life on a ventilator for breathing support. Nyrell managed to touch so many lives in a very short time. On August 7th, 2018, Nyrell defeated his battle and entered the pearly gates of Heaven."

So sorry about the passing of your beautiful son @nylah_n_nyrell_mom 💔💔💔💔💔

"We found out at my 20 week ultrasound that our little angel had an intestinal blockage called Duodenal Artresia and would require immediate surgery once she was born. At 34 weeks pregnant due to extremely high blood pressure I gave birth via an emergency c-section. At 8 days old Aubree had surgery to repair the blockage (her duodenum was completely wrapped around her instestines) and "activate" her digestive system. After 53 days in the NICU and with an imminent graduation date, it was then one of the previously known VSD's (holes in the heart) was significantly larger than they thought and would require surgery. Aubree was transferred to Sibley Heart Center where she spent another 19 days having tests run and gaining weight. On August 5th she was finally released home to gain weight and continue prepping for the heart surgery. She's come so far and still has a long way to go, but we are so proud of her strength."

Thank you @aubreeesalmon for sharing

After I brought Quinn home I always felt like I needed to justify people why I was neurotic lol. Here are a few of my you know your a #preemiemom when...
1. You feel like you need to justify why your baby is so small.
2. You carry hand sanitizer everywhere you go
3. You’d like to have a full medical history before someone can glance at your baby.
4. You always feel like you need to explain adjusted age vs. actual age.

Babies cry as a form of communication. The first three being hunger, diaper change and sleepy. Gas,boredom and just needing to be held are other reasons babies may cry. Some babies are more content than other babies, however that does not mean that your baby is a bad baby. Every personality is unique and different in each child. If you need a rest from your babies cries and would like to learn how to soothe your crying baby , call us . Our newborn care specialists and postpartum doulas can teach you several calming techniques and tools to use to relax your baby and yourself! www.laborlullabies.com #cryingbaby #refluxbaby #holdme #colic #swaddleme #feedme #dirtydiaper

From Mom @my.triplets.journey
・・・
After the initial shock of hearing, "you're pregnant with triplets" wears off, and it starts to sink in that 'you're pregnant with triplets', you then begin to envision your life and look forward to certain things happening. All of my babies snuggled side by side is one of those things. .
.
Although, things took place that I never would've imagined or planned for, I now have to adapt to my new circumstances and adjust my vision slightly. I finally got to put my girls together and my heart is so, so full. You have no idea. On the flip side, my heart is breaking more and more as I think about my Bella not being here with us. Those two bouncers instead of three hit me hard.
.
.
My new reality is amazing and I'm so thankful for beautiful, healthy baby girls. It's also heartbreaking. I'll always keep my sweet Bella's memory alive. My girls will grow up knowing they are triplets and we will forever celebrate Bella. Her memory will live on. The purple butterfly represents my sweet girl.

Today is the day that Jax and Josie decided they couldn’t wait to join DunskyTown.
Coming in 3 months early and at 2lbs each they fought for 4 months to thrive and be alive. Not a day goes by that I don’t thank the Universe for allowing me to be their mom.
It’s been beautiful, it’s been hard, it’s been joyful and it’s been frustrating but I love these two to my core.
Happy 6th birthday kiddos, thank you for picking me to be your mom. 🎂 🎁

*UPDATE* Lorcan is now 2.178kg. On a cpap peep of 8 and 60% oxygen. doctors have increased feeds too 38ml every 3hours and we have introduced a second breastfeed 😍 so we do a 9:30 breast feed leave him rest for his 12:30 and then breastfeed at 3:30.. this is huge and such good news but makes me tied too the hospital a bit more so I need too try juggle Ariana and home life again and set out a new plan. But we will get there we will be introducing breast milk through the bottle as well as obviously I can’t be in the hospital all the time as much as I want too I can’t I’ve ariana too think of as well so my aim is too have 3 breastfeeds with me and then the bottle. The lactation consultant does not want too introduce bottles till Lorcan is well established with breastfeeding first... #lorcan #lorcanobrien #littlefierceone #24weeker #24weekermicropreemie #micropreemie #micropreemies #micropreemiemom #micropreemiesrock #micropreemiestrong #micropreemiemiracles #mirclebaby #breastfedbaby #breastfeeding #37weeksgestation #13weeksold #preemie #preemies #preemiebaby #preemiepower #preemiestrong #nicu #nicubaby #niculife #nicujourney

£14,569.43!!!

Absolutely smashed it! Thank you to everyone that's helped us get to this amount! Pippa's short life will certainly make a positive difference to other babies and their families.
.
With GiftAid on top, it comes to £16302.56 for @leeds_cares, and all to be donated to the Neonatal Ward that cared for Pippa.
.
There's a couple of smaller amounts still due in, but wow!

How are my babies so big?!?!? They recently started wanting to BOTH fall asleep on my chest at the same time so I've been getting cute pictures of that 😄 I hope they always love doing this because it makes my heart so warm 😭 I remember this first picture so clearly, being in the NICU just wanting to take them both and run home 🙃 (juuust kidding) we were so nervous to even carry them because of how tiny they were! Now look at them hanging out with each other sitting up like big girls 😭😭😭

This is a diaper. The mama who meets her baby at this size feels fear and usually blames herself for birthing so early (it is NOT her fault!). She can’t breathe while her baby is too young to breathe on his own. She can’t sleep and everyone tells her she needs rest. She doesn’t know how to be in the hospital and at home with her other babies, who wonder where mommy goes every day. She doesn’t know what to do next to the incubator, nothing feels like enough. If you know a mama of a preemie, she cannot explain it to you, it’s a different universe that no one can imagine unless they’ve been there. Offer to babysit. Feed her. Hold her hand while she cries. Help her with her housework. She needs support while baby grows. #preemies #NICU #baby #pregnancy #prematurity #prematurityawareness

Today we held a bbq to welcome the twins to our friends and family and wow what a turn out for them. The little angels slept the whole time- not a peep from them and you can hear all the chatting going on around them. These babies are so loved by everyone. We received some beautiful gifts and also some donations for the special care baby unit where Frankie was treated for the first few days of his life when he had a few problems. We will be making a donation this week to the hospital as a thank you ❤️. We are so blessed to have them healthy and happy #boygirltwins #fraternaltwins #twinsofinstagram #twins #twinningit #winningattwinning #preemies #prematurebaby #prematurebabies

We have another winner! Despite the look on Lucy's face, they ALL liked this baby food! So far it's only this and homemade banana food. 🍌🍐🥕🍽️ nom nom nom
Also- these meals require daily baths afterwards. OhMyWord. Who knew three tiny people could create such a huge mess. They smear it in their hair, up their noses, you name it!

Viele Fragen mich wie ich das alles bewältigt habe.. Wenn ich mir die Fotos anschaue und sehe wie winzig und hilflos mein Baby war.. Frage ich mich das selbst. Es war eine sehr sehr schwierige Zeit.... Glaube immer an Gott egal wie hoffnungslos manches sein mag.... Es gibt wirklich Wunder und eins davon ist mein Baby.... Mit der Zeit, werde ich meine Geschichte hier veröffentlichen um anderen Müttern Mut zumachen💓#premature#preemiestrong

Quel bambino, arrivato troppo presto, che vediamo per la prima volta fra fili e tubi, attraverso un oblò, in molti casi, non avevamo neppure iniziato ad immaginarlo. Quello che vediamo, spesso ci fa paura, perché abbiamo paura di quello che non conosciamo, perchè abbiamo paura del futuro. Eppure, quelle poche centinaia di grammi di infinito amore, sapranno stupirci. Coraggio, tenerezza, forza, dolcezza, ci sorprenderanno. Noi dobbiamo essere famiglia da subito, perchè hanno infinito bisogno di noi. La professionalità di chi si prende cura di loro e la tecnologia, sicuramente indispensabile, andranno di pari passo con il nostro essere famiglia, che significa prendersi cura ed accudire. Tutti insieme possiamo essere artefici di qualcosa di meraviglioso. #TINaperteh24 #NICUopen24 #prematuri #preemies #forza #coraggio #tenacia #speranza #love #NICU #PACE #neonati #famiglia #piccolieroi #littleheroes

Pregnancy causes most parts of a woman’s body to change, and the eyes are no exception. Dry eye is a common pregnancy ailment that usually begins toward the end of the first trimester. It will usually continue throughout the pregnancy and possibly for a few months after the baby’s birth. In addition to dry eye, other subtle eye changes can occur during pregnancy, causing irritation and sometimes difficulty wearing contact lenses. You can protect your eyes by wearing large brim sun hats, goggles while swimming, sunglasses even on cloudy days. Ask your physician before using eye drops or changing contact solutions. www.laborlullabies.com #dryeyes #eyes #iseeyou

Yesterday was Pippa's Fundraiser. The climax to our fundraising drive the neonatal ward at Leeds General Infirmary. We set out a target this year to raise £10,000. This included the donations made for our Three Peaks challenge, raffle tickets, and money made at the fundraiser. We don't have a final figure just yet, but we've definitely raised over £14500 for @leeds_cares - which is just incredible. So proud.
.
The fun day yesterday couldn't have gone any better. What a turnout! The BBQ sold out (we'd got so much food, definitely thought we had too much)... The cocktail bar sold out... We sold over 3000 raffle tickets... It was just incredible. The Paw Patrol stole the show though, they went down a treat with the kids. Massive thanks for the pawesome job by all those who helped us by climbing into the costumes.
.
Stealing Tamar were brilliant too, great soundtrack for the day - and the magician was brilliant with the kids.
.
Thank you to everyone involved, all the guys that helped out and staffed the day. Huge thank you to everyone who has donated, bought raffle tickets, and helped support our efforts. And a massive shout out to Scott at The Myrtle Tavern for letting us host the day at such short notice and take over the entire beer garden!
.
Today we're having Penny's birthday party a few days before her actual birthday. Few family and friends, nothing crazy.
.
This next week Evelyn's going to Scarborough to stay with her grandparents, while Hannah and I get the house back to normal. It's looked like the most random shop lately with all the prizes everywhere. Then we have the matter of Penny & Pippa's 1st birthday on Wednesday. Deep breaths. Feeling very anxious about the day.
