this body of mine has been through a lot in the past year. when i think about what i was going through this exact time 12 months ago, i was barfing my guts out at least twice a day because that twin pregnancy was no joke and a daily struggle that felt like it went on and on for like, 52 weeks. fortunately, it’s over and my baby girls are 6 months old next week! i’d do it all over again and again if i had to for my babies, because it’s always worth it and it doesn’t last forever. but between you and me and the world wide web, i am a little bit thankful to have graduated from that stage of life now since i’m still catching my breath from it all 6 months post partum.
the newest update for my bod is that my eyes have taken a hit and i am back into that fun club of wearing eye frames! my eyes shifted during my first pregnancy with eleanor 8 years ago and the eye doctor told me to hold off a few months before getting glasses since sometimes the eyes will shift back once everything has settled down. i held off on having my eyes checked for a few months but did end up needing glasses. my prescription was just ever so slight, but it made such a difference. eventually after samson was born and i had my eyes checked again, i didn’t need my glasses anymore as my eye sight was back around 20/20. thankful for that shift and was hoping that when my eyes began bothering me again towards the end of this last twin pregnancy, perhaps they’d fix themselves once again if i gave them a few months after birth to adjust.
but here we are, 6 months out and yep, i’m back in glasses… it felt like christmas seeing everything crisp and in focus again after my appointment last week (and being headache free!). since i’ve been known in the past to throw on a pair of faux glasses as a fun accessory, i don’t mind one bit this new chapter of getting to wear frames officially. even if eleanor’s initial reaction upon seeing my new frames was, “mama! you look like edna mode from the incredibles.” (oh gosh that’s not what i wanna look like but it’s fine. i’m fine. i said i’m fine!)
i have to say that between the diastasis recti, a thyroid situation and melanoma scare (i am totally fine, but do get all your moles checked!), this eye frame update has by far been the most fun of all the changes going on with this ever-changing body post partum. just in time to help me see up-close the blessed hair-shedding stage where no matter what you do to try to save it, it just keeps shedding post babies. anyway, gotta end this on some sort of positive note, so let’s give three cheers for some pictures of my new frames!
