It had been three months since Wendy left the airwaves to prepare for the birth of twins.
Wendy's maternity leave started a little early when she was ordered on bed rest that lasted five weeks before the big day. During that time Wendy says she "googled for encouragement."
Wendy was prepared for anything and everything and had the nursery (aqua is the main color) all fixed up and ready to go before she was placed on bed rest. Those grueling weeks had her literally alternating between the sofa and the bed.
Despite those anxious weeks that included small bouts of depression, Wendy says the safe and uncomplicated arrival of her daughter and son was "beyond anything I could have dreamed."
Daughter Eleanor June Lucia and son Wyatt Covington arrived on May 17th.
Since then, it's been a whirlwind for Suares and husband Stephen. Wendy says at first it was all a blur with very little sleep and round-the-clock feedings.
Both Wendy's and Stephen's moms came to town to help the new parents care for their little ones the first few weeks, but now they're on their own.
They're still working out the family schedule of day care drop-offs and pick-ups.
Wendy says she's still "running off adrenaline with the excitement of being a new mom," but can't wait for her first "date night" with Stephen.
Returning to work today was expectedly difficult since Wendy has not been away from the babies for more than an hour at a time. She says halfway through the morning show she "felt the longing."
Coming up Thursday on KARK 4, two special reports "Catching up with Wendy," on KARK 4 Today and "Wendy: Advice from Jancey," on KARK 4 News at 5, will tell more of Wendy's motherhood story.
