My Christmas Wish List

My Christmas Wish List #1 To sleep through the night and awake in the morning refreshed and ready to go again. #2 To sit in the evening and at about 7pm have the twins both just fall asleep and stay asleep as we lower them into their cribs. #3 To have a conversation, a conversation […]

Blonde Bear moves into her own room

In a big move for Blonde Bear, and perhaps bigger for her mother, Blonde Bear has moved from our bedroom into her own bedroom. She has been sleeping in her own room since about 7pm (it is now 10:15pm). She has woken a couple of times and I have raced up the stairs with a […]

Teething; Need I Say More?

With a title like “Teething” what more do I have to say? Story’s two front bottom teeth just came in one day with not a whimper. Annalie? Screams of inconsolable agony all evening. Screams of exquisite agony that send shivers down your back. Screams that made Jim Dawg whimper…and she is deaf and blind. So […]

An ages-old hazing ritual

One thing that really does not make anybody feel better is the, “Well, you think you are going through tough times and are tired? WELL! when I had my kids it was….” Thanks for the empathy pal. I do not doubt that it was just as tough for you trying to function all day after being […]

Decisions, decisions, decisions

A serious post this morning. When you have babies, you have so many serious choices to make and you really do not know if anything you are doing is the right thing or wrong thing. And then you add in product recalls, choices around which formula to give your baby, or whether you should or […]

Breast pump up date and Nestle formula

Just a quick update on the breast pump situation; the pump we have is an Ameda pump. I think I said Aveta before but it is an Ameda. The courier brought the new pump to our house yesterday and we are back in the breast milk game. I have to say that the customer service from […]

The weekend wrap up

Nice quiet day today. It started with our weekly trip to Quan’s Kitchen for breakfast. It was a pleasant surprise this week because my buddy Terry brought his son along for brekkie. By the time Story and I got home it was nap time for the girls. I managed to get Annalie to sleep quite […]

A lovely weekend sleep-in

It is up and at ’em for another day! Story is in the exersaucer…a device brought to us from an Afghani prison used to torture prisoners by preventing them from sleeping. It is similar in sound to someone gently taking all the plates, bowls and mugs from your kitchen, putting them in a plastic garbage […]

The new sleep pattern as dictated by the twins

The girls have decided to alter the evening/night schedule. As usual they have their tub between 6 and 6:30pm, have a feast and then into bed by about 7pm. They sleep quite peacefully, sometimes stirring a little, but sleep until 10:30pm. Then they figure it is time to get up. Story in particular let’s everyone on the […]
