Thoughts on Motherhood

“Everything has changed yet, I am more me than I’ve ever been”

– Iain Thomas

    LIVING LITTLE

    It’s so easy to get caught up in life that we forget to actually live and do what makes us happy. This past week brought about a big change in my life (Read more about that here) and a few reminders of what’s important.

    I’ve been moving at a pace of “get things done as quickly as possible so I can get more things done” and I’m having to remind myself to slow down and live at their pace and…

      MONTHLY MILESTONES – 8 MONTHS

      8 Months? Really? Where has the time gone? I love that each month becomes my new favorite. The babes have really made leaps and bounds this month development wise. Easton is crawling and pulling up onto everything and side-stepping. Everly is a little less mobile but her cognitive skills are on point. The girl is aware… she knows when I leave the room, she watches and mimics, she babbles all day, and her spit bubble skills are off the…

        STEPPING OUT

        Stepping out of your comfort zone is never easy. It’s probably one of my least favorite things to do. Funny thing is, each time I’ve taken that leap, I’ve never regretted it. So, I’ve made a choice. I weighed all the pros and cons, I went back and forth, I lost sleep, but I made a choice.

         

         

        I’m stepping out of my comfort zone of the office and into my life at home, full time. I’ve always valued my…

          SPREADING THE LOVE (OR MILK)

          Breastfeeding is hard, really REALLY hard. And no one tells you this…

          When I was pregnant I was determined to exclusively breastfeed our twins. I read all the books and prepped myself the best I knew how. I had a vision of how easy and beautiful breastfeeding would be and it didn’t play out that way.

          MY STORY

          The babes were born 5 weeks early and breastfeeding in the 1st month was a difficult struggle. We ended up having to supplement with…

            BALANCING ACT

            WORK LIFE BALANCE… Is there such a thing?

            I keep hearing about it but in my endless search for it, I can’t seem to locate it (similar to my car keys yesterday but that’s another post).

            Balancing work and being a mom is probably one of the toughest things I’ve had to do. I’m constantly in a state of tug of war with myself… answer one last email or change a diaper, make one more phone call or rock a babe…

              BATHING BABES

              Rub a dub dub two babes in a tub…

              Bathing twins is no joke.  Someone is always trying to drown themselves or the other. We recently made the transition from a baby bath to the big tub because bathing both babes at the same time is WAY more convenient than one at a time and they can sit up and “swim” on their own now!

              Bathing the babes in the big tub has brought on a whole new wave of necessities…
