First Christmas Time Capsule

Dear babies, 2012 was your first Christmas. You were five weeks old and you slept most of the day. You're still squishy, lovey babies. You weigh somewhere between 7-8 pounds and you're both around 20 inches long. You're still wearing newborn-size clothes, though you'll be ready for 0-3 month pretty soon. We grab whatever onesie...

Merry Christmas!

2007 was the first year I got my own Christmas tree. It was a fake tree, twenty bucks at Target. It was a nice little tree, and I really enjoyed having a little Christmas cheer in my cozy studio apartment. In 2010, we finally bought a real tree for Christmas, and haven't looked back since....

One month

Dear E and M, Oh my goodness, I can't believe you're a month old. That you've been in our lives for a whole month. It's been the longest month of my life for sure--but that's probably the monotony and the sleep deprivation. But also, I can't believe it's been four weeks already. It's kind of...

I'm trying to multitask, but there are always so many things I want to do at the same time (like eat or... Continue Reading →

Just a little, when they need something--usually a pacifier or something to eat, or when they get too gassy. It doesn't last too long, and... Continue Reading →

One Maid A-Milking

I don't know if it makes me a bad person/woman/mother, but I don't actually want to exclusively nurse. Maybe because there are two babies and it sounds too daunting. But it makes me feel like I'd be too tied to them. I want some freedom. I want and need a second person to do feedings.... Continue Reading →

The Recovery

Today marks two weeks post-baby, and there are still lots of changes going on body-wise. Almost all of the PUPPS rash has faded and now the scratch scabs are finally healing. So glad that I don't look like a leper anymore. My feet started swelling this summer. Certainly by mid-August they were puffy pregnancy feet.... Continue Reading →


I'm enjoying having babies a lot more than I thought I would. The day they were born, I thought to myself, "Oh man, I see why people want a lot of these. Maybe I want more." Holy shit, one baby would be SO EASY. I still feel like myself. I was afraid that I would... Continue Reading →
