When I went to the big re-sale a couple months ago, I had a very specific list of items that I knew the babies would need in the short term. When I saw the huge area of big toys, I froze. I tried to think about the next 5-6 months and what the babies would... Continue Reading →
Dear sweet babies, You are seven months old! Strangely, this past month feels like it's been really long. I guess it's good that time is slowing down a little, because I don't want to rush any of this baby time. And this is a pretty good time for all of us--you are extra adorable and...

Wow, thank you so much, everyone, for your kind words on the last post! So lovely and heartwarming. I am much less emotional about it now. It's been a week and a half with the helmet, and I'm pretty much used to/resigned to it. E is still doing just fine with it and doesn't seem... Continue Reading →

Book Review and Giveaway!
I bought several pregnancy books (including What to Expect When You're Expecting) so I could keep up with my babies in utero. To prepare for outside babies, I got several more books, each with a specific focus (twins; sleep; medical stuff; soothing techniques; developmental leaps). I wondered if there was some kind of all-encompassing book... Continue Reading →
Summer Bucket List
Francesca posted recently about the Summer Bucket List Challenge and I thought to myself, Ooh ooh! Yes, let's! Now, I'm kind of cheating, since I already had most of this list in my head as part of my goals for the summer/year. But it's a good excuse to be part of a bigger community of... Continue Reading →
