I can't believe it's been almost a year since I last posted and thought it was high time I got my act together and started blogging again. That and people have been asking me if i've put anything new on my blog, how's the blog going, what have I made lately, so finely you all (Dad) get to find out haha. But alas, today it's just an update so no food, sorry :(
As you can imagine a lot has happened in a year. I've had the twins - Yay Yay!! A boy and girl (in that order too) they're six months old now and probably the best babies one can ask for, no idea how I managed to pull that off but hey, it's great. I won't bore you with the whole "I did NOT have a c-section and that makes me feel like superwoman" "my babies are just the cutest" "they know their ABC's and can count backwards from 1000". I've been incredibly lucky with the twins, looking after them wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, I imagined the worst and got the best!
Getting the best twins was probably a good thing because our son has been quite sick. He was born with eczema, it runs in the family (husbands side) but since the end of last year it's gotten really bad. I mean severe, it got so bad he went to hospital and it seems he lives on antibiotics but he has ongoing specialist care so thats good. He was covered from head to toe with it and lost sooooo much weight. The day after I'd had the twins (imagine my hormones raging) my husband comes in after taking our son to the doctors and tells me he (our son) is the size of an 18 month old (he was nearly 3) and that he could die, not the best thing to tell someones thats just given birth. The poor midwives told me I had the baby blues haha, I told them I was crying because of my son! He still has the ezcema all over his body. It's not infected (at the moment) his skin isn't completely cracked (at the moment), he's not on antibiotics (at the moment), but he is just so time consuming. Two special baths a day, wet wraps, make sure he eats heaps of fat, monitor his weight, any weight gain is a huge success! People think our life is hectic and stressful because of the twins, but that isn't true. It's hectic and stressful because of our son. At the moment its three steps forward, two and a half steps back.
And then there's me. I still love making cakes and any opportunity I get i'll make something so you can imagine I have quite a backlog of yummy treats to share with you all.
Okay guys, thanks for reading this really long ramble hopefully it makes sense. Nice to get that off my chest though:) Well, thats my update in a nutshell. Till next post, take care.
