Last Thanksgiving kind of didn't exist for us. The babies were born the day before, so our second day all together was still a hospital blur of pain medication, the tedious process of feeding babies every few hours, and being stupid with exhaustion. I don't think I even got a shower until the third day.... Continue Reading →
Twelve Months!! One Year Old!!
My dear sweet babies, You are twelve months old--you have been alive for an entire YEAR! You're a year old! I can't believe it. No, really--one year olds are practically little kids, but that can't be you yet! What happened to my tiny babies?? How has it been a year already?? I've been thinking a... Continue Reading →
Life Right Now (Schedule update v8) (11 months)
In a word: Tired. (That's us, though.) Around the end of October or so, I guess around when they turned 11 months old, the babies ended up changing their routine in an important way--they basically dropped two feedings. We've also changed their sleep routine a little. And naps are in the process of changing too,... Continue Reading →

They don't really spend any time there in daylight. But as they get bigger, and our living room-slash-playroom starts to feel smaller, I started to think about actually getting some fun...

My local store didn't have the letters I wanted, so I got them online. Sometime in the last year or two, I remembered... Continue Reading →
Sleep, sleep, sleep
The babies' sleep regression lasted a little less than three weeks. It was the same kind of regression they had earlier this year (the 4 month sleep regression that hit them around 5.5 months; this 9 month regression hit around 10 months). As far as these things go, it probably wasn't too awful--an hour to... Continue Reading →
Dear sweet babies, You are eleven months old! That means, good lord, you're going to be a whole YEAR old soon! My mama heart cannot believe it. I will continue to call you my babies even after you start toddling around, and probably far after that as well. You are really starting to really become... Continue Reading →
While we were at the orchard a few weeks ago, M took my hands and started walking! (M orchard) At home, I put him on the horsey and he walked in across the room, slowly and jerkily. He kept practicing and practicing. He also started cruising along the couch, but only in one direction (to... Continue Reading →
