One year!

I know I have been MIA for a while. It's been a crazy few months to be sure. Around the middle of Sept Alaina started refusing to nurse next to Aiden. So I was back to spending nearly an hr every time I nursed them, since it had to be done separately. That's also about the time I started feeding them 3 sold meals a day. It took a while to adjust to their new schedule. And out of the blue they started waking up a few times a night. It made for one tired mommy.

Then it was the holidays, and-- their first birthday!

Now things are starting to settle into a new routine. But we are going to be moving in a month. So that means lots of packing, and an entirely new schedule to come up with..... Fun, fun, fun.

I just wanted to say hi to everyone and share a new picture. I will be trying to play some major catch up on here tomorrow. The new site setup will take some getting used to.

I still nurse them separately. But now they only take about 5 min each. It's def easier now. I don't know how I'll feel when bf is over. Bittersweet I'm sure...

We aren't moving far. Only about 2-3 miles down the road.

Happy Birthday! It is amazing how fast that first year goes. Those two are so cute. I love the picture. Did you make the tutu yourself? I have material to make tutus for my girls, but I have been afraid to try it. I am not at all crafty.

I did. It's very easy... No sewing at all. Just cut the tulle into strips about 2" wide, fold in 1/2 and make a loop knot around a ribbon or elastic.
