Our New Home

Well, we made it to Atlanta.  I started my new job, I passed my test, we moved into our new house, the kids started their new daycare, CJ is working from his new house, the kids are over 11 months old and starting to walk, and life is so so good!!

That was a crazy run-on sentence, but it summarizes nicely the past two months.  It has been crazy here and super stressful at times, but I am so happy!!

I just wanted to post really quickly while I had some time before dinner! The kids turn one in a matter of weeks and I'm trying to figure out if I'm going to keep posting or just keep following along.  Good luck to all of you still trying.  I'm rooting for you and I'm so sorry that you have to go through this (whatever your this is.)  For those of you who have your miracle and angel babies, congratulations!!

Here's what's up with the babies.  They both have teeth...two for baby boy and three for baby girl.  They are mostly sleeping through the night, except when they are sick.  They are drinking 5 x 4 ounce bottle/day of breastmilk or formula and eating 3 "meals" and 2 snacks a day.  They are walking with holding hands and saying mama and dada and babbling.  They love baths and even like hanging out in the bathroom whenever they get a chance to stare at the tub and smile/laugh at their bath toys.  They are pretty much amazing and I really feel like these were the children I was meant to have and I'm so so thankful for them.

Now, its time to figure out dinner and evening playtime!!  I hope you all had a good weekend!!


  1. Wow!! Sounds like an amazing two months! So glad boy and girl are doing well. The best possible news!

  6. Hahahaha I think your cakes and the idea is awesome. Lucky Kate gets all that extra cake! But by all means use a bakery if it's less stress. AJ's cake was collaborative: I found the recipe, Mr Turtle baked it and I decorated it with the help of a friend who arrived early. It was yummy!
