Welcome to the Roe household blog. We're attempting to post 365 days of pictures in a Roe. Cork and I have been married since 2002 and welcomed identical daughters in August of 2009 after a struggle with infertility. Our girls were definitely worth the wait and I say they were destined to be here because they were conceived on my birthday, due on my sister's birthday and born on my grandma's birthday. What are the chances of that! We welcomed our third daughter in June of 2012. We all fell in love with her right away. She has two amazing older sisters who love to watch over her.

The girls are very good at going to sleep themselves for naps and initially at night. Most nights they wake up after 40 or 50 minutes and I know the rest of the night is going to be very difficult. I spend all night re-swaddling, plugging pacifiers in and feeding. I have to be super thankful they are here, but I also have to admit how frustrating this is. I am a walking zombie. I feel like I have a 5.5 month hangover without the drinking. Some times only one will wake up initially and the other can sleep through her crying. Some times, like tonight, they are both very unhappy. There are nights when I just can't take another minute without breaking down into tears. On those nights I just have to walk away and calm myself. If that means that they get to scream, then they have to scream for a while. Tonight is one of those nights and it's just begun. It's going to be another long wakeful night.
