Halloween 2015

Each new holiday that we have with our boys becomes more and more fun. They're two years old, almost three. This year is the first time they understood Halloween. Through October, we all pointed out jack-o-lanterns and pumpkins in people's yards, we visited a pumpkin patch (but didn't have time to get a pumpkin) (I... Continue Reading →

Clark County Fair, with Twins

Two weekends ago, we decided to brave the Clark County Fair. It was our first big fair experience, and it was certainly an adventure! First, thank goodness we brought the stroller. (I recently got a double umbrella stroller, which is perfect for this kind of thing!) We weren't sure if we would need it, because... Continue Reading →

Toddler Talk!

I think one of the best things about having toddlers is hearing their little voices, the cute ways they have of speaking, their quirks as they learn to talk. And having twin toddlers means that we get to hear them actually talk to each other--our boys totally have conversations! It's adorable and awesome and we're... Continue Reading →

Two and a Half!

Our sweet boys are 2.5! I'm not sure if much has 'changed' since they turned two, but they've definitely grown--physically, socially, developmentally. They're still a lot of fun (and a total handful sometimes, too, of course). Right now, if I had to guess their future occupations based on their current favorites, I think M would...

Motherhood: I’m doing it ALL WRONG

Last fall, I came across this article (10 Things Your Mom Never Told You) on Facebook, and it really rubbed me the wrong way. It's that treacly stereotypical garbage that obviously means I'm an absolutely terrible mother. In fact, I'm such a bad, lazy mom that it's taken me four months to actually get around...

Scenes from Tonight

So the other day E was playing with the empty laundry basket, and I randomly decided to lay him down in the basket and carry him as if he were laundry. And then I gave M a turn. They thought it was hilarious, I thought it was both hilarious and adorable. Tonight we did more... Continue Reading →

25ish months old

I promised myself (and mentally promised any readers) that I wouldn't keep doing these monthly updates. And I don't plan to! But this past month-ish after their birthday has still been really interesting and I didn't want to forget anything. I'm not going to take monthly photos anymore either, but will try to do the...

Two Years Old!!

Dear sweet babies, Ok ok, you are now officially, definitely, not babies anymore. You are TWO! I am trying not to refer to you as babies as much, at least not in public. I guess I have to just call you 'boys' or 'kids' now. Sniff. E, you are 34.5 inches tall and you weight... Continue Reading →

23 Months Old!

Dear sweet babies, Twenty-three months old! Ack! You're getting so big, and capable, and interesting. Here's what you did and learned as 22 month olds. This month has been the last of the beautiful fall weather! We've been doing lots of outings and walks to let you burn off energy outdoors. We're already a little... Continue Reading →

22 Months

Dear sweet babies, Happy 22 months! You seem to be having a lot of fun learning and doing so many things. Here's what you did and learned as 21 month olds: You are picking up a lot more words, including: aunty, uncle, hello (both with and without the pronounced L sound), peekaboo (which sounds like...
