The Sanctity of Summer
The Sanctity of Summer

I call it “distracted mothering” and I’m really good at it. Too good. It might be a text, or an e-mail, another child, or a floor that needs sweeping. It might be laundry or lunches or washing my hands. It could be a conversation I’m trying to have with a friend or a...

For the Love of Baby Teeth

Let me start this by saying that my husband is a wonderful man. A man who knows me and loves me well. He washes dishes, does the Costco run, plays football with the boys in the backyard, changes dirty diapers, reads bedtime stories, makes pancakes the size of my two...

My New Life

Today I brushed my teeth while unloading the dishwasher. My Christmas decorations are still sitting in the middle of my garage and I haven't showered in two days. It's 12:45 pm. This is my life. The twins have arrived. As usual, I've had a thousand blog posts swirling...

Nerves and Newborns

One week. Just one week and they'll be here. By this time next week, Lord willing, I will be snuggling two little baby girls! I am excited, and nervous. Mostly nervous if I'm honest. And actually more nervous about the c-section than twins. It's all just kinda...

The Belly
The Belly

It's official guys, I'm huge. Last Tuesday, at my weekly doctor's appointment my belly measured 44 weeks! And, ahem, I'm only 34. In the span of two weeks I gained eight pounds and my belly grew 8 cm. I've entered the stage of the freakishly abnormal belly and it...

Trusting God When Things Are Good

It's November 1st! The birth month of our precious baby girls. I am so happy, relieved, and amazed to be here, 33 1/2 weeks pregnant and rolling (not quite literally) into the month of November. Honestly, it feels nothing short of miraculous. I remember all the...

Bursting My Buttons

Week 25. I wore a dress today I had been saving. That was a mistake. The buttons are nearly bursting. I should have worn it earlier. It’s a super cute denim shirt dress, and it will only get worn about 2 weeks, if that. It’s a shame to waste a cute maternity dress....

Do’s, Don’ts, Wont’s

Well, it's week 23. Which, for me, really means I am starting the third trimester. You think I'm kidding. Sadly, I'm not. At my 21 week appointment they measured my belly at a whopping 26 inches (or 26 weeks). Yikes! So it's probably safe to say that at this point--I...

Big news, Big change, Bigger God

Let's just pretend you all already know the news. I am having twins! And they're GIRLS. Identical GIRLS. I am now 19.5 weeks pregnant. Yes, I am counting half weeks now. My belly is growing mysteriously large by the day, so in this case, I think half a week makes a...

Bird’s Eye View

I am pregnant! Yes, early pregnant, with our fourth child! What?! I can hardly believe it myself. Once I get beyond the blahs and ickyness, I'll be a little more excited. For now, it just means that my food is continuously stuck in my throat and nothing sounds good to...
