Let’s go play outside!

  It was such a breezy and sunny day in Austin, so I decided to take the babies outside for a change. And not just a walk in the stroller. We tried out our new tent from One Step Ahead. It pops up with one flick of the wrist, and folds back into itself for […]

A day in the life

Me, Katrena and Lynley So, I’m going out of town and leaving the babies for the first time overnight Saturday. It’s exciting/heart wrenching all at the same time, but I will be traveling five hours to celebrate my sister’s 30th birthday and enjoy some girl time with her and my mom. Very needed! Anyway, I’m […]

Happy half birthday!

It’s been such a beautiful blur making it to this point, the six month celebration! It was actually on the 20th, but we just had the checkup today, so I wanted to wait to include their stats. Motherhood so far has been wonderful, chaotic, stressful and frustrating at times, but most of all rewarding. Seeing […]

Laughter is the best medicine

I think the babies knew that Mommy and Daddy were a little stressed recently. So they teamed up and surprised us (and caught us off guard. sorry about the video quality) with just what we needed. Laughter. P.S. You can subscribe to our youtube channel to watch all new and previous videos.

A lesson learned: to hell and making our way back

The last two weeks have been torture. Let me preface by saying that everyone is fine, but we have been following a medical issue for Corbin. It’s been HELL! We are not quite on the other end of this yet, but we will be soon. Again, I say that everything is fine. See? Perfect baby […]

Solids: Take Two

You might remember that a few weeks ago, we tried to introduce solids to the babies. It didn’t go very well. Everything I read said to wait a week or two and try again. That’s just what we’ve done, and Miss Thang has been eating rice cereal every morning and having a vegetable with two […]

A picnic and a reunion

Wow! It sure was a busy weekend. We had a few appointments and a few activities. More on the appointments next week after their 6 month checkup. But for now, check out these two pictures of the babies with their favorite nurse, Richard, the day they left the hospital and Saturday, 4 1/2 months later! […]

A little bit of Texas history

Today was a fun, but exhausting day! We made our first trip to visit the State Capitol and say hi to some of my former co-workers. On the way there, I told Corbin and Lynley a little bit about our great state. The basics: our state flower is the bluebonnet, and we are taking pictures […]

“I raise twins, what’s your super power?”

That’s the saying on a t-shirt I found for Derrick for Valentine’s Day, and it’s becoming a motto at our house. Because sometimes things are so chaotic that when you make it out on the other end, you question how you actually did it! “Must be because I’m awesome!” If only we truly had super […]

What they don’t tell you about breastfeeding…

When you stop…. ALL of your hair falls out. For the past month, I have been shedding a lot of hair. It’s not just a dozen hairs on the brush either. It’s many handfuls in the shower, after the shower, after blow drying, after brushing. It’s everywhere! And I do mean everywhere. Like in the […]
