A Personal Life Update

Things have been pretty quiet over here in For the Love of Books land. Well, on the blog at least. Life, on the other hand, has been anything but.

My twin baby girls were born on Sept 14th. They were born early, at 34 weeks (+ 2 days) and that meant they needed to stay in the NICU for a couple weeks. Which has meant I’ve been shuttling back and forth, constantly traveling to and from the hospital (half an hour away from home) and juggling NICU mom-life with my regular at home mom-life. It’s been pretty exhausting and emotionally very difficult.

Any hobbies, including reading and writing, have been basically not happening at the current moment. I have from time to time jotted out a few notes and ideas for stories and articles, using my phone, while a baby naps on me (or while feeding) or tried to read a couple pages of a book (currently working on reading Nine Perfect Strangers) while the girls sleep, but with 2 of them my hands are pretty full so it’s been less productive than I would like. But I wouldn’t have it any other way of course, as I’m just so in love with them so they’re worth it.

However, today they finally got to come home which means my family is now together and life is about to get even crazier. 🤍

With that said, I’ll be back with some bookish content soon.


    • Thank you so much! Wow, 3.3 lbs! That’s amazing. My girls were 4lbs 8oz and 4lbs 11 oz, and I can’t get over how teeny they are, so 3.3 I can just imagine how small. Definitely trying to get as much rest as possible, although the girls have other ideas. lol.

      • Haha, yah that won’t let up completely for at least 18 years. my parents always said twins were easier in some ways than single babies, and harder in others. One cries, the other cries, and we were always in competition, but we also entertained ourselves a lot easier because we were always together – so we were quieter than our siblings, and not quite as demanding once we didn’t rely so heavily on them for every waking moment. It’ll be hard, but you’ll have so much fun with them!
