The 411

So here's what's up! After reading some of your A-mazing comments from some A-MAZING people I decided to keep this blog up because of you girls. This is where I started, to lose this would be like losing a huge part of me and where I came from. I am infertile, and sadly I am sure that will never change, I am a twin Mom and thank the lord that WILL never change. Now I need to find a way to balance both of those worlds in one blog. Polar opposites somehow combined into one. I need to find a way to connect to my other twin Mamas or Mamas to small kids, but also be sensitive to where I came from and who else might be following.

So the plan is to keep it A-GOING, I can't leave you girls and I want to stay a part of your lives and you in mine. I went back and forth about making a 2nd blog more geared to the Mommy side and kept away from the real world (minus Drea of course) where I can vent about laundry, dishes, mobile babies, and real life events, but uh yeah, where in the world will I find time start a 2nd blog and keep it up to date? I can't even keep up with this one. And beyond that give me a break, going private sucks. I am so bad about checking in on private blogs where you need a password or have to be logged in, and the lack of comments bites on private blogs.

I am going to continue blessing your eyes with pictures and videos of our wonderful creations along with brief updates on our crazy lives. Ocassionally I may throw in some stories about some of the struggles we go through, but the REAL vents will happen via gmail chat with my Drea and during a glass of wine with my Susie and oh of course with the Hubs. So, the dirty laundry won't be making its way to my blog, it will stay piled up in our basket at home, every once in awhile I piece might fall in, but for the most part this blog is about being a Mommy to MIRACLES, and while it isn't always easy it IS A-MAZING and fullfilling.

Why am I doing this? Because I can! This IS my blog after all, and the goal is to share our life with good people. So if you aren't good people, and you don't have anything nice to say, and you don't want to read about what it is like to be a working Mommy to twins, then by golly stay the heck away. Just as I have the freedom to write and share, you have the freedom to go away.

Now, onto what REALLY matters:


Hi, bye, Mommy, and Daddy are big time in our house. So are the waves hi and bye, the all done sign while in highchairs, baths, and changing tables (which BTW Aaden, thank you for letting Mama know you are "all done" at the start and all through diaper changes, I get that you don't like it but, eh the other option is rather smelly.) Aaden now tells us when Noah is all done, he points at Noah in the highchair and does "all done." Thanks for watching out for your bro kid.

Last night Aaden dropped his cup and it rolled under the couch (I was in the kitchen) he came to me grabbed me by the hand then brought me to the couch then got down and pointed under the couch, holy moly there it was... his cup I had given him 5 minutes before! What a smart tart!

A few nights ago the boys were down for bed, I heard a small bark from the dog. I went into the boys room and there was Phoenix protecting his babies. Noah pops up and says "dog out!" then lays back down for bed. Noah has also been caught saying "shit!" Yes, I am a horrible Mother I know. I dropped something the other day while him and I were in the kitchen, and yes I said it, it just slipped out and then BAM the parrot copied me. I will pay MUCH closer attention to what I say from now on.

I have started a scrapblog, I am 77 pages in and am LOVING IT. So far it's free, but once I order the book it is obviously going to cost, but what is cool about it is I can share it as a link and on Fac.ebook. So, I hope to be able to share it here too. The book will be from September 12, 2009 to September 12, 2010 full of digitally scrapped pictures. I plan to make a book each year and stay up to date on it for year two, I may also start sharing my pics on here scrapped, because DUH so much cuter. Do people even say Duh anymore? Obviously next years book won't be as large as the first year and thank goodness because it's $1 a page to print. I am still debating on if I will add all the pages, another option is to print them myself and bind them myself, but a hard copy book would be awesome, so we will see.

Now I saved the best for last:


**** Okay okay just because I can't resist here is a sneak peak of the one year book:
