The Best Time to Be a Kid {Gymboree}

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Gymboree. My twins think the best time to be a kid is right around the holidays, and I can see why.  They celebrate Halloween, their Birthday, Thanksgiving and then Christmas.  They like to think of October through January as “party all the time”.  Luckily for them, Gymboree usually releases […]

{My Twins}

I’ve always been fascinated with twins. Even before I had twins. When I found out I was having twins, I immediately wondered if my twins would have their own secret language. I really, really wanted them to. If you call biting each other constantly their own language, then they had one. But, I’m pretty sure […]

The One in Which Think I’ll Wake Up With a Grey Hair….

It’s a given. Some times I HAVE to share parenting stories. Some times I feel compelled to. Like today. I haven’t started going grey. Yet. I have a feeling that with what happened yesterday that might change. I’m a pretty laid-back mom. That hasn’t always been the case, but having 5 children that at one […]

Wordful Wednesday-The Twins

One of the greatest parts of blogging is meeting wonderful people. One of my older blogging pals (as in she is one of my first blogging acquaintances) is Tammie. She has TRIPLETS (and NO lines on her face-can you see my the envy on MY face?) and is a photographer here in Southern CA. When […]

He’s following the leader…..{John walking}

John walked tonight. A lot. Today I was by the stairs and I saw Jacob walk around the corner from the kitchen, down the hall and into the family room. So weird. Now John is following his lead. John is so cute. He claps for himself after he reaches his goal. They’re OFF! Oh, and […]

Jacob is walking!

Jacob John with his walking machine…. Tonight we were over at the Bush’s house and Susan was playing with Jacob. Ryan called to Jacob and he walked over to him with a unique side step, but like he’s been doing it for awhile. I couldn’t believe my eyes. After he realized that he walked across […]

comparisons….{twins}

Everyone asks me about Jacob and John’s personality differences. Their temperaments are quite similar though, and until recently there were alot more similarities than differences. Here’s a few new developments though: *Jacob is our more aggressive twin when it comes to toys and food and basically anything he wants. As you know from a previous […]

Toe biting fetish?

I’m starting to wonder about Jacob. Does he have a toe biting fetish, or what? When we were in CA my sister was feeding her baby in her high chair while Jacob was standing up and playing by Sofia’s feet. All of a sudden, Sofia starts crying and there’s Jacob standing innocently by with her […]

the way it goes

When John started climbing the stairs I tried working with him to teach him to crawl back down. He would have none of the instruction. UP, UP, UP! I gave up. Then one day I’m watching John climb the stairs, he gets half way up and then starts climbing back done. Mission accomplished, although it […]

the newest trick

John is on the hearth I just had to share the twins newest trick. Climbing up on the fireplace hearth. They are pretty proud of themselves for managing this, and I don’t have the heart of say no when they flash me such winsome smiles.

Laid to rest! {Jacobs CT scan results}

No, no one died, the results from Jacob’s CT scan came in. Normal range. Not a huge surprise. But, I’m relieved all the same. Update: The doctor called today and went into the report in more detail with me. Yesterday’s report was from the nurse. Anyway, NORMAL, but his parietal bones are asymetrical. So, in […]

Opinion, please.

I need your help. I was trying to get a shot today that made the boys look the most identical……which is your favorite?

The stats are in….{twins at one year}

Jacob and John had their ONE YEAR well check this afternoon, accompanied with 4 shots each. The weight gap has widened, and Jacob is now a half a pound heavier than John. Both boys are holding strong in the 10th percentile for weight and height (you’d never guess it by holding them though….they feel pretty […]

It’s official! The twins turn ONE!

John really wanted the cake Jacob enjoyed his cupcake……a lot! One of our cowboys (Jacob) They are ONE! We celebrated the boys first birthday with a themed party at Rachelle’s house. We had a barnyard party that turned out really well. The twins wore plaid shirts, jeans and cowboy hats (for about 30 seconds, that […]

bath time

Jacob John and Jacob John I LOVE the look and smell of clean babies…..

Our momo’s are going to be ONE!

I can’t stop thinking about the passage of time and that our little momo’s are going to be ONE on Thanksgiving. I thought I’d post a few pictures of them “then” and “now”(OK, THAT didn’t work, will try later) and share “our story” that I have posted on monoamniotic.org, a site that has been very […]
