The Twins’ Birth Story

Two weeks isn’t too long past the twins’ birth to tell the twins’ birth story. Right? You’d forgive me anyhow because if you’ve met the twins you understand the need to snuggle is real. On April 1, the kids and I took a follow-up picture to compare to the initial “we are having twins” announcement….


Three Baby Items I Skimped On

There are three baby items I skimped on while we were preparing to welcome the twins. Of course, I am now kicking myself for not grabbing up more before babies arrived because shopping while on the way home from the hospital or post a doctor’s appointment is oh so fun. I get it – there are…


The Real Reason I Cried at Sweet Frog

Yesterday was my 32nd birthday. I got the greatest gifts when the twins were born a week ago (I’d insert a link to their birth story here, but my posts are limited to mobile this week because all the snuggles all the time). There was no need for a fancy cake (still have their welcome…


Plant Me a Jelly Bean Tree

Spring is finally here. When Greg and I arrived home from the hospital, his mom had picked up several beautiful plants for our gorgeous flower beds (we believe they are gorgeous, the remains of past summers tell us they will be). The house smelled glorious (my mom’s non-hospital food helped) and was so bright and…


What’s Your Name?

All photos in this post were taken and copyrighted by our friend Michelle. To get your minds going about what we will be naming the twins…here are a few of the ones tossed around. Sorry…we forgot to include Stinky and Cheese (the big kids’ don’t you dare name them that but it would be hilarious…


38 Weeks: April Babies

I specifically remember prancing into one of my first ob appointments with Dr. K and announcing I was so carrying the twins to 40 weeks, wasn’t nothing going to stop me. He smiled, probably took a note, then told me 39 weeks is usually “it” for twin gestation with a repeat c-section. I didn’t care….


The Cover Up

I should really just let the pictures in this post explain themselves, but I can’t. I can’t just sit back and let you all miss out on the fun that Greg and I had when this was discovered in the kids’ toy room today. While we encourage the kids’ artistic side, we’re not quite sure how the…


37 Weeks

We’ve made it to 37 weeks. 36 of week were almost absolutely healthy perfection when it comes to pregnancy. And then once week 36 hit? It hit. In the past 7 days, my body has been through a lot. I’ve been telling the babies to stay in and “bake” until 38 weeks and 3 days,…


Disney 2014

Back in OCTOBER (I know…), our family took one big trip to Disney World. It was just a month after Grandma passed and the day after we sold our house. Whirlwind and a half. Might as well share some of our favorite things about the trip since I’ve finally taken the time to put the pictures…


His Comfy Place

A few weeks ago, Michelle came out to our house to capture “the belly” before we welcome the twins. She happened to capture a shot of Evan that simply melted my heart and reminded me of how much he’s grown but how much he still needs his comfy place. First, let’s start with a photo…
