Managing Twins: 9-12 months

Fun at the Pool

I drafted this post long ago after the kids had their first birthday. I kept hold of it knowing there was more I wanted to add. I finally got around to finishing it up, and with the twin’s 1.5 years coming up tomorrow, I thought now was a good time to publish it. – – … Continue reading

Friday Fun Spot: Cute Twin Moment

Twin Moment

I have to be honest, I have no time for this. I’m too busy with Christmas stuff. Here’s some old footage of a cute twin moment caught on film. They’re 11 months old here. It’s definitely still worthy of a Friday Fun Spot.

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

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

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

Ellisa goes “ubha ubha”

Ellisa goes "ubha ubha"

Here’s the latest video of Ellisa being adorable. Daddy taught her this today while I was at the grocery store. What a gift to come home to. She’s already trying to figure out how to do it on her own. Pretty smart little girl. Skip to the 15 second mark if you’re in a hurry. … Continue reading

11 months today!

Hud and Elle

One more month and they’re a year old. I can’t believe it. What has this month brought? Extra laughter. The twins have really become thinking little humans. And because of this, the whole family is laughing a lot more. They are reacting to things much more than ever and it sure makes life with them fun. … Continue reading

Watermelon Please

Watermelon Fun!

We first discovered that the twins LOVE watermelon when we took it out to the pool to help replenish the twin’s fluids in this Texas summer triple-digit heat. Then, Ellisa started having feeding issues a couple days ago–complete bottle aversion– and we thought we should try giving her watermelon to help her hydrate. Well, she … Continue reading

A Day Filled with Emotions

Hudson's first steps

Yesterday was quite a day. Ellisa and I had an appointment with the Pediatrician in the morning. We went in for a weight check since she’s been having a hard time taking her bottle. I swore she had gained weight since she was looking fatter to me, but unfortunately she had only gained 2 oz. in … Continue reading

A Purma Visit: Grandma Purma, Aunt Anna, and Cousin Martin

Hudson and cousin Martin

Last week the Purma’s came to visit. We got to spend some quality time with Grandma Vicki, Aunt Anna, and the twin’s cousin Martin. It was a blast. We spent most of our time either eating or playing at the pool. Of course that’s all in between taking care of the babies. Of course Grandma … Continue reading
