And she’s not shy about sharing all the joys of motherhood now that identical twin girls Betsy and Emory are here; the double blessings and the double dose of realities. Her Instagram, which she could’ve easily used to only post the glamorous side of parenthood, is full of so many real-life pictures that I know other mothers can relate to:
Mama is the babies’ favorite place to sleep.
Our identical little ladies Betsy Mack and Emory JoAnn were born January 29th around 2am, 5.5lbs each and 17 inches long. Their Daddy took this picture when they were two days old napping on Mama. Their favorite place to be, other than on me, is nose to nose and cheek to cheek. Big Sister Eisele’s heart is full of love for her sisters and she is already such an incredible little helper. One week in and we are definitely seeing double! Double the blessing, double the tired double the laundry, but double the love! ~Tyrrell Party of Five
Motherhood becomes a major reality when a baby pees on you. In public.
Sometimes a car is all the pumping station you need.
A three-hour stretch of sleep is #UniversalNewMomGoals.
Showering and shaving your legs may or may not happen. Ditto for brushing your teeth.
Am I laughing? Am I crying? Am I asleep? Am I awake? Have I eaten? Have I showered? Have I brushed my teeth or shaved my legs? Are those still Christmas pillows? I don’t think I know the answers to any of these questions, but y’all my heart is FULL and this is me, #twoweekspostpartum captured in a photo today. ❤️♀️
The writing’s on the wall when you also have a four-year-old.
This week’s People magazine has a feature story on Scott and her family of five, which includes her husband Chris Tyrrell, their four-year-old Eisele, and now Betsy and Emory.
“That first night after they were born (I told Chris), ‘It’s pretty cool we don’t have to share. You can have one, and I can hold one.’ We can each hold a baby all the time,” she said of her double blessing from the Lord after suffering a miscarriage.
“It was just one of those things. I was like, ‘They’re meant to be here,’” she said.
After a long stretch on bonding, and hopefully some long stretches of sleeping, Scott will hit the road in July (when the twins are almost seven months old) for the band’s Summer Plays On tour with Darius Rucker and Russell Dickerson.
