Ava Reads a Bedtime Story

Tonight, Ava read us a bedtime story. After a difficult week with her being clingy, a little sick, and losing her favorite cup, this sure was a good way to end it. Enjoy her “reading” of one of her favorite stories.

Twins: 23 Months

twins 23 months

Well. Here it is. The Twins’ 23 Months post. How have 23 months flown by? How is this our last “months” photo and post for our babies? Somehow, some way, it’s here.  ()

Turning 23 months old was basically just like any other day in the twins’ life. Well, sort of. They slept in (a rarity). They carried oranges around for awhile (and told me so on the phone). They got their runny noses wiped approximately eleventy-hundred times (yay for the random sickness rounds that have hit our house). They ate cherry tomatoes and tater tots for dinner. They made us laugh and made us so ready for bedtime, too. keep reading

Giveaway for The Picket Fence: Pittsburgh Baby Stores

This post, The Picket Fence: Pittsburgh Baby Stores, is one such post.

Okay, we forgot to call me out for not posting that the twins are 21 months old? Hint, the answer is yinz all did. How did we let another month pass up? Next thing you know, these two will be off to college and this ‘lil blog will be a thing of the “ancient” past. But for real, there are only two more monthly posts for these baby milestones left, sigh. keep reading

The post below contains something extremely scary that our family has experienced first-hand. It may trigger some intense feelings.

Blind Cord Safety¸ like other posts on this blog, may contain affiliate links to products but the suggestions and opinions in this post are my own. keep reading

20 Months

It is so hard to believe that today is another milestone for the twins. 20 months have flown by. 

Ava continues to shock us. Take that, failure to thrive. This girl is a thriver. In her 20 months, she’s probably ate more than Evan’s ate in his almost 6 years. She is sneaky and daring. Her words have become sentences. She’s so loving, even trying to cuddle with her little sister at night.  keep reading

19 Months

​It’s hard to believe, but the twins turned 19 months old today. 

Every time I see them walking, I am bugged out. They are so small yet so strong.

Speaking of small, their stats, according to Greg: Ava is in the 19th% in weight at 20lb 8.8oz. 9% for height at 30.5″ and 26% head. Isla is 6% weight and height at 19lb 1.5oz and 30.25″ and her big ol’ head is 67%. keep reading

Gerber Lil’ Beanies for the (Twin) Win-Win

Hey there. We’re the ‘lil Burghers twins and of course we do everything exactly alike. You know. How twins do. We’re best at eating all of our meats, fruits and veggies and Gerber snacks.

Believe them? Ha! We’ve been struggling with getting both twins to eat like they should. Ava loves meats. Isla loves carbs. They both are “eh” about getting in all of their fruits and veggies. They both love some snacks. keep reading

The Twins 17 Months

Twins 17 Months

On Friday, the Twins turned 17 months old (don’t worry, we’re still in denial over here, too). It was a whirlwind month with the girls amazing us more every day.

Ava started walking five days after turning 16 months old. That might have something to do with the whirlwind. We are now chasing them in two different directions. Baby proofing is officially vital. At play time she has had to go into isolation of her own playpen because she continued to bite Isla. Most recently, she’s put her pacifier to the side. It’s no longer attached to her day and night. She went four nights without it before uncovering it from under her crib mattress on Friday night (but promptly told it “night” on Saturday morning). Her favorite thing is “Number of the Day” from Sesame Street. keep reading
