early prep with this group is the key to less grumpies. i tend to pick a few recipes to make and freeze each week to have quick, easy food on hand as well as incorporate some fresh food and leftovers from the fridge. todays lunch was leftover pasta noodles with smashed avocado, turkey meatballs (freezer...

Our first year as a whole family (growing from 3 to 5 members was quite an adjustment). first christmas dottie can kinda 'get' santa first christmas where we didn't have massive construction/leaking in some part of our home (our addition has...

settling in

Routine. That has been our main goal for the past few months and I'd like to think it's working. the boys still wake up way too much at night, but atleast they, typically, go to sleep without much fuss. They've also started crawling, every where. They went from moving backwards to full on crawling and... Continue Reading →

me + 3

the last of our help has come and gone - we are on our own. it's a lot to take in having 3 babies under 2 and just one adult most of the time. but someone's got to bring home the bacon. most days are honestly pretty good. dottie does amazing and the boys somewhat... Continue Reading →

My father-in-law was kind enough to fly in the day after christmas to help us get our... Continue Reading →

4 more feet coming

Funny thing happened. Dots is going to be a big sister. (Guess I'll have to change the title of this section) And to make it even more fun, it's twins - the identical ones - Say hello to the new additions 'A' and 'B': Yes, I realize this is crazy and with all our construction going...

rain rain go away

Construction has stalled for the week and a half of rain we've been getting, sigh. And last night was a doosey, with all the acorns and branches falling it sounded like a war zone inside. Luckily Dottie somehow managed to sleep through it all. Perhaps it was her cozy sleeping den complete with fan and... Continue Reading →
