Last Day

It is the last day of November and that means it is the last day of NaBloPoMo! I hope to keep posting often, just not every day. I wanted to take this last post to remind all the waiting families that it will happen. I know sometimes it seems it never will. I remember this…



Gift Giving

I thought I should follow-up my last post with saying that we are not against gift giving/getting. We do love to give and get thoughtful gifts. I think one of the points of advent conspiracy is to give less and give better. Right after I posted my last post, I was thrilled to read Gretchen’s…



Advent

The season of Advent begins tomorrow.  It is a season of anticipation of the Second Coming and celebration of the birth of Jesus.  Advent Conspiracy has served as a good reminder to me about the focus of this season, about God’s love for us and the hope that He offers. Matt and I are continuing…

The Piano

Teeny tiny babies playing with dad Big boys playing with dad Ezra has become increasingly obsessed with playing the piano. To the point today where he was standing at the piano crying. So I sat with him and Noah a bit to play. Then Noah was done and I desperately need to stuff diapers, so…



Hummus!

I have been on a huge hummus kick for the last several months. Serious addiction is more like it. Needless to say I was thrilled the other day when Erica posted this recipe. (I know totally lame to just link for a NaBloPoMo, but it has been a long and tiring day)



Enjoying some sunshine

After the boys’ second nap yesterday we took a walk down to one of the neighborhood playgrounds and enjoyed swinging and playing in the grass. The weather has been absolutely gorgeous lately. Some pics of the fun: I thought I was snapping a pic of Noah, when I inadvertently caught him making one of his…



Noah is finally mobile!

Noah started crawling this week.  He is so much happier now that he can move.  Here is a short video for proof: Crawling Noah from Stephanie Adams on Vimeo.

Forward or Rear Facing?

Our plan all along was to turn the boys around when they hit one year, as long as they were 20 pounds. Those are the recommendations we had always heard, but a friend posted on facebook that her pediatrician recommended keeping her baby rear facing until 2. Turns out that is the safest way to…
