I stumbled across the cutest ever baby tee shirt this morning. Isn't it perfect? I want it, times two! In every color, so Lucy & Catalina can wear it every day. That way, when they protest after too many cuddles, I can say it's not my fault. Going (Etsy) shopping, back soon. P.S. her blog … Continue reading Cutest tee ever
Diaper changes have been epic battles around here lately, so we've been trying some new tactics. The girls' favorite is to "help" put a diaper on their bears, and they like to carry "Diaper Bear" around. I came found them this morning with their heads bent together, helping each other put a pink diaper on the … Continue reading Every age is the best age, but this one may be best of all
A lot has changed since I last wrote cooking for babies. My grocery budget, for one. I had no idea how much one year olds could eat! Since it's no longer practical to cook separate meals for the girls, I've started trying to plan meals for the week that will feed all four of us. Sometimes the … Continue reading Cooking for Four

Is everyone's instinctive reaction to a mom of multiple kids, from parents and childless people alike, and it elicits sighs from a lot of twin moms because we hear … Continue reading Why I Don’t Mind Being Told I Have My Hands Full
The babies will be 11 months old this weekend, and the closer their birthday gets, the more I have flashbacks to this time last year, my last (huge!) month of pregnancy and the girls' birth. And a funny thing has been happening-- such a thing of grace. The babies' birth wasn't exactly a sweet and … Continue reading Last year at this time: Sovereign grace behind the scenes

These days I don't even know whether I'll leave breakfast unfinished or end up with an unexpected … Continue reading Find a ritual.
