Okay, there is a little more to our lives than just the babies. Okay, not much more, but here is what I’ve been working on in the back yard. We’ve got Strawberries, Tomatos, Squash, Pumpkins and Marigolds. It’s really turning out pretty well. The kids liek going outside at night to take a look, and the little break each night where I pull some weeds and water the plants is really relaxing…. Read More

Here are some videos we recorded the last week or so. I know people are going to think that Reece dancing is just me moving him, but he’s moving me. Honest.

The focus of the last couple of weeks since I last blogged has been sleep. Both ours and the twins. A few weeks ago, we had 4 really good nights in a row with them both nearly sleeping through the night, then presto, whamo, two really bad weeks in a row with them both being up half the night, or up every other hour.

It’s pretty funny to watch. We think Reece did say his first real word yesterday when he… Read More

I know, I promised to post something about the babies, but I was thinking of something else first. Everyday, while eating breakfast, I have a select few websites I surf to catch up on things. I usually do them in the same order, since I guess I have a little bit of obsessive compulsive in me. Here are my favorite sites If you don’t read Dilbert on a daily basis, you… Read More
