Life with Twins – 2 Month Update and January Favorite Products

The second month has been mellow and enjoyable. Phil went back to work and I’ve been on solo twin duty while Colin goes off to grandma’s for the day. I’m starting to get cabin fever being stuck on newborn schedule even though I take the girls out at least once a day for a walk […]

Wearing This – Family Photoshoot

When the twins were 2 weeks old, I scrambled to find a photographer to capture newborn and family photos. Most photographers were booked for the rest of 2017 and not all of them had a studio which is what I preferred given the poor lighting in our house and the cold weather outside. We finally […]

The bump has gotten ridiculously dense and bigger by the […]

Parenting – Halloween 2017

I can’t believe this is the third Halloween season we’re enjoying with our little one. Here’s a recap of our family and kid’s costumes over the last two years and a reveal of this year’s costumes. Phil likes to surprise Colin with his costume and the first impression usually doesn’t go well. We actually caught […]

The following is not meant to be taken as medical advice, just a retelling of my own experience. GESTATIONAL DIABETES I didn’t get this […]

Pregnant – Tea for Two Themed Baby Shower

Over the weekend, we celebrated our baby shower with friends and family. Between Colin’s baby shower, his first birthday, and the twin’s baby shower, we are constantly amazed and grateful at how much support we get from our loved ones.

Traveling – California Academy of Sciences

On Labor Day weekend, which must’ve felt like the hottest day of the month, we took a family trip to the California Academy of Sciences to use up tickets someone had gifted us. It was nice to see the museum from our son’s eyes for the first time. I have been here many times but […]
