My Twins Turn One

So here I am with two 1 year olds!  Technically I’ve had two 1 year olds since December 14th, but with some hospital stays over their birthday and sick kid after sick kid, I haven’t had a chance to properly acknowledge these sweet babes and their milestone. Finding out I was pregnant with twins was one of the most shocking and joyous moments of my entire life that I will never forget.  Me, by myself at my ultrasound because I…

Happy Birthday Madelyn

First Week Back to School

First Day of Preschool {Year Two} Well, we did it! We made it though our first week back at school. It was a short week with Madelyn going  just three days this week. We were definitely dealing with a tired and cranky kid. I totally forgot how tired and grumpy she was last year for the first couple weeks of school. I thought that maybe she wouldn’t be as tired this year being that she’s that much older, but I…
