There are two loves right now: my Twingaroo carrier (at least until they outgrow it) and my BOB jogging stroller. The carrier makes it easy to get things done when I’m flying solo, or even when Dan is with us and we just don’t feel like using a stroller and a cart. Or we’re going […]
The boys are still healthy and thriving. I was really worried when we made the switch to all table food. I have never had particularly good eating habits, and I was worried that I would mess things up for the boys.
Well, it happens you caught me on a good morning. The boys got a fancy (for us) breakfast of milk, toast and a cheese omelette. Mommy, meanwhile, had a cup of coffee and is considering some oatmeal here shortly. I actually cook pretty much every day. Breakfast is usually cereal, fruit and milk. But omelettes […]
I think I’ll focus on Lucas here. The fact is, Lucas can be kind of a bully. Stealing toys out of his brother’s hands. Stealing the pacifier right out of Henry’s mouth. Screaming in jealousy the moment I pick up Henry for whatever reason. If he weren’t so cute, it probably wouldn’t be as funny […]
I really don’t think I have one at this point. Now, I’m saying I’m perfect by any stretch of the imagination. But we are only just starting to get into the parenting phase. Up until now, it’s just been the “keep the tiny humans alive” phase. Now that the boys are starting to really play […]
Started to really get moving on their own! Henry was the leader of the pack with learning to crawl. He crawls with a little bit of a stanky leg, which is the best way I can think to describe it. Instead of using two hands and two knees to move, he uses two hands, a […]
My great Aunt Joyce! So the boys’ great-great-aunt. That’s pretty outstanding. Of course, I was either so absorbed in the visit or so exhausted from the holidays that I forgot to take any pictures. She came up with her kids, Linda and Rick, the Wednesday after Christmas and took us all out to dinner. The […]
Grow. Thrive. Play. Be happy. This time last year, we were facing definite hernia surgery for Lucas and Henry was probably about half-way through his battle with necrotizing enterocolitis. I had no idea what their future held or when they would be coming home.
Easy: Lucas and Henry. Most of the new people who came into our lives happened because of those boys. I made the rather unexpected move to leave my career (for the foreseeable future) to take care of those boys. This year has been such a roller coaster. At the beginning of the year, we were […]
