We’ve put together a Twin Parent Checklist – our take on the “essentials” for twin parents as you navigate through the first years as twin parents. If you’re a twin parent, check it out and tell us what you’d add!
Yup. That’s pretty much how I feel.
Today is the twins’ birthday. It’s been the fastest year ever. Wasn’t I just pregnant with them? I thought so.
Both of the girls continue to amaze me every day. We celebrate them today, and look forward to many more milestones.
This list of Gift Ideas for Newborn Twins is my attempt at sharing things that my family has found beneficial in the first year of the girls’ lives. By no means am I an expert, and there are probably a ton of other awesome things twins parents could use – if so, I’d love to hear about them, too! (This post contains affiliate links.)
It can’t get any more real than this, can it? My babies are 9 months old. (Hint, it can. And it does. Just wait for tomorrow…)
While this picture it’s pinterestperfect, it’s pretty darn spectacular. Ava and Isla are both sitting up, crawling, babbling (primarily in their twin code), and eating anything they can get their hands on. I can tell all of that just from the photo (see Isla’s red knee?) Just ignore the baby food on the carpet and Ava’s socks. 😉
The twins have now been on the outside for longer than they were inside.
It’s incredible to think about how quickly they have grown and become two amazing blessings. Time’s flown so much that I’m not sure I’ve shared with you that…
Thank you to Huggies for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring me to try Huggies Little Movers Diapers.
You’d think I would have been way more prepared for this, but the twins are on the move and it’s time to start thinking about ways to keep my ‘lil movers safe and happy in the house. Evan’s been out of this stage for almost three years PLUS we’re in a new house, so we have to think about:
This week simply flew by. Probably doubly as fast as the last 28 Weeks have because…
Another first cold. Passing germs is fun.
Clearly having outgrown all their newborn and 0 to 3 clothes.
First time not being able to keep up with the cloth diapers (see teething).
We can technically call this an un-official 6 month post. The twins are on the move!
Our little ladies have developed so much in the past month. The picture above was yesterday, moments before AVA started to wrestle Isla (after Isla stole LaLa) and then Isla army crawled away and got stuck under a chair. I call out that it was Ava because she has been so gentle and loving, like a dog to its child-master, allowing Isla to climb on her, kick her, and steal her paci. Yesterday? She had enough.
Is it possible for a 4-month-old to fall in love with something? Because if so, that’s exactly what Miss Isla Joy did with the 4-in-1 Smart Connect™ Cradle ’n Swing from Fisher-Price. It was love at first sight when we met the team at Blogger Bash NYC, and we clearly had to get our hands on one. It was absolute zen from our girl who has a 10-minute limit for holding still.
