Someone from my multiples group posted this today, and I had to repost it here on my blog. I can’t count how many times I’ve sat there wiping booties, doling out snacks, super gluing fairy wands, taping torn books back together, or scraping dried bits of broccoli off of my kitchen floor, thinking, “I […]
So apparently we like listening to our voices echo in the hallway. Claire (in pink) has also previously demonstrated her love for echos in public bathrooms. And isn’t everything more fun with no pants on? If the camera is shaky, it’s because I am laughing so dang hard.
We have a newfound love for colors. And coloring. And sorting the colors. Some early morning rainy day coloring. Claire, who would color for maybe 3 minutes in her highchair before throwing all her crayons on the ground, really seems to like drawing on [Mommy’s nice] big drawing paper at the table. Mommy figures someone […]

Claire putting her arm around Rachel in the stroller and pulling her close for an unsolicited kiss. Daddy bringing Rachel to bed with us early in the morning…Rachel finally realizing I was there too and exclaiming, “Mom!

It is when they focus on the impact that premature birth has on babies and families, and also on the opportunities for prevention of premature birth. From their website: “Today more than 1,400 babies in the U.S. (1 in 8) will be born prematurely. Many […]
We love buckles. Plastic buckles, like on our stroller, car seats, grocery carts, and Sammy’s collar. We can’t get enough of them. We play with them, get frustrated when we have to ask for help, get elated when we buckle it correctly, and then politely ask Mommy of Daddy to unbuckle it for us so […]
So much to say these days. We talk about everything, although you may not be able to understand a word we say. So here are a few translations (a few of our friends have done this on their blogs, so of course I had to follow suit). And each of these words is most often […]
Halloween was a blast this year. I settled on this year’s costumes, fairies, as far back as last Halloween. Is that weird? Is it weird that I am also already planning what Rachel, Claire, and even Zoe are going to be next year? I had planned to make our fairy tutus myself, but our awesome […]
Today I got to be a normal mom. Only for an hour or so, but still. Poor Rachel has had a little cough since Thursday night. She’s not showing any other symptoms, but apparently she’s congested, and it only really bothers her when she lays down to go do sleep. So after 3 nights of […]
