I think it’s time for some videos!

It seems like a long time since I’ve posted any videos, so here’s some of my favorites from the last few months. Enjoy!   Sorry, this one’s kinda long but I just love it. The ending is too cute.     This one cracks me up! I love watching them dance. It’s funny when Ellisa … Continue reading

A “Peanut” Party: Behind the Scenes

A "Peanut" Party: Behind the Scenes

Since my friends Kristin, Jessica, and I hand-made almost everything for the twins first birthday party, I thought I would share what all we made and a quick how-we-made-it. First of all, I went with a “peanut” theme for obvious reasons. Once I designed the invitation, I based everything else off that. Instead of starting … Continue reading

ACL preview

ACL preview

Last weekend was the Austin City Limits music festival. Will we ever take the twins to ACL? Probably not. And no, we didn’t actually take our babies this year (I can’t believe some parents actually haul their infants to a music festival!). What we did do was take them out in their new Radio Flyer wagon … Continue reading

12 faces for 12 months

12 Photos for 12 Months

This was a project I wanted to do after I saw something similar on A Cup of Jo. It was really easy to set up and fun to shoot. The hardest part was getting the twins to make all their faces. That and getting Ellisa to keep her bow on her head. I simply sat … Continue reading

12 months today!

It’s been a year and I’m happy to say we made it! Actually, it’s been a year and one day, but who’s counting. This has definitely been the best month by far. Since the twins are both more aware of their surroundings, they have been much more fun this last month. It’s like they’re real … Continue reading

The “Peanuts” First Birthday Party Wrap-up

Twins First Birthday!

Okay, I’m gonna make this short as no one wants to read a bunch of babble about the twins first birthday party. What every one really wants is to look at photos. To sum it up: I believe a great time was had by all and it couldn’t have been more of a success in … Continue reading

Managing Twins: 3-6 months

Hud and Elle sleeping together

Okay, this is where the fun begins. Everyone is home from NICU, family is here ready to help, and we’ve got two demanding babies that need constant care. This was definitely the most difficult time during the first year due to the fact that both twins were home and still relatively young–meaning, lots of feedings … Continue reading

There Will Be Blood

There Will Be Blood

Hudson has fallen three times this week landing on his latest and greatest toy: a yellow plastic cup. Plummeting directly on the lip of the cup, he has jabbed his teething gums. Ouch! Bleeding all over and crying like crazy, I feel so sorry for him. I hate seeing Hudson cry from pain like this. … Continue reading

Managing Twins Apart: 0-3 months

Mommy visiting Ellisa

The first three months. Gosh. They were hard, no doubt. But sometimes I wonder if they were easier for me vs. a mom with completely healthy twins. I’m not at all suggesting I’m glad I had it the way I did, as I would prefer it to have been 10 times more difficult if it … Continue reading
