'Tis The Season

The twins are doing extremely well. They're smiling more, laughing more, and paying more attention. They're also eating a lot more too. My breastmilk is not coming in as much as I want it to.  I currently have my son latching on to me, but I'm still supplementing with formula.  No matter what I tried my daughter would not latch after she started drinking out of bottles in the hospital due to my infection.  I'm not sure how much longer I'm going to keep breastfeeding actually. I will try the pump later this week and see how much I'm actually producing.

This past weekend we finally put up the Christmas decorations. I also tried a DIY project that I saw on Pinterest and it came out really nice. Our color theme is silver, blue, and turquoise. I even used fake snow for the first time.

We also made homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookies from a recipe I found online, and they were delicious. Everyone loved him. My kids couldn't stop eating them. However, next time I want to tweak the recipe so that they stay chewy. They were warm and soft coming out of the oven, but the next day they were crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. They were still good, but we prefer our cookies chewy.

I am still on the hunt to find a surgeon. I'm pretty excited that I'm finally going to be able to take care of the issues with my stomach in terms of the hernia and the separated muscles. But, I wanted it done on my own terms. I wanted to be able to possibly travel to get my surgery done. The only reason is because I feel like the surgeons here in the US don't pay attention to the curves of a woman. I pretty much stalk the RealSelf website and I noticed that many of the women that choose surgery in the US have what I call the SpongeBob Squarepants look in that they're flat in the front, but their waists don't have any curves. Their middle sections are shaped like squares. It's like the surgeons didn't pull their sides in enough to give them an hourglass shape. But, the women that go to places like the Dominican Republic for surgery look very feminine. I just hope I can find someone in my area that will know how to snatch my waistline.

I'm thinking of checking out the residents at Penn medicine. I also want to check out some of the
surgeons on the Mainline. Ideally, I want to shed some weight before the surgery. I think that will be helpful in terms of recovery.  But, I'm not allowed to exercise like I want to because of my spine. I'm one of those people that has to exercise to lose weight. Eating clean is not enough for my body type.
