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

Just Another Thursday

Today is just another Thursday. It’s been a busy week of work and play and VBS, and we’ve just about made it through to another weekend.

Crazy how time flies these days. The weekends, always faster than ever, right?

Last night, our cell phone service was down. This isn’t usually a problem, but Greg and my brother were off buying things they need for the fence building that is taking place this weekend. There were questions that needed answered and my bars just glared at me in emptiness. Instead of taking the time to be thankful for the blessing, I got upset and took to the Twitters. Sigh. So many books to read, words to write, and there I was complaining about undistracted time to do them. keep reading

When She Wakes…


…she will move mountains.

Our Ava is already moving mountains. From being “failure to thrive” to taking up most of the playpen that she is supposed to share with her twin.

This girl, our quiet yet fierce sweetheart.
