The Twins are THREE

How can it be? Today is a big day for two ‘lil girls, our twins are three!

These girls have truly changed our lives, keeping us on our toes ever since the day they were born. Both bring so much love and joy to our family, it’s hard to imagine that three years ago we had no idea what we were in for. keep reading

Last Day of School 2017

last day of school

This one is coming to you a month late, but The Bigs last day of school photos have to make it to the blog at some point! It’s incredible to take a look at how much has changed in a year.

Seriously, though. And in the month since that photo was taken (their last day was May 31), they’ve both changed even more. (For instance, Evan has way less hair and I swear Arianna has grown a foot.) keep reading

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

Our Boy is Six

Evan…

It is your day. Your six day. Six! 

Six years of silly smiles and songs. Six years of guessing games and coloring. Six years of baseball blanket. Six years of those eyes. 

You are a fast learner and are doing awesome at school. You love Ninja Turtles, Star Wars, and Avengers. You love playing soccer and want to be a soccer player when you grow up. You’re fiercely proud of your sisters and are a good helper.  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

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

Twin Tuesday: Walkers

happyAva

All it took was some encouragement and a blog post about her not walking, and she did it. Ava took her first steps on Sunday afternoon, so now we have got two walkers on our hands.

Look out, world. Here she comes!

Sixteen Months

Sixteen Months. No way, right? There is no way that the twins are sixteen months old today.

I mean, weren’t we just celebrating Sisters Day with them when they turned four months?

Oh. Well. I guess a year really has passed. That’s what happens when you are busy watching two ‘lil girls grow up. keep reading

Happy Birthday, Twins!

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. keep reading
