Life with Coco and Gigi... and Jack-Jack too!

Life as a Mom, A Homesteader, A Blogger and A Wife.


It has been a while since I gave a general update, so here goes:

Gracie - Well our little princess is making huge strides these days. She is rolling from belly to back (although, like her sister hates to be on her belly) very regularly. She loves to sit up with a little help and even likes to stand with someone to balance her. She doesn't seem very close to crawling but looks like she won't be too far away from pulling herself up and standing. She isn't eating great but has been gaining weight okay. She really is the happiest (and loudest) child around. She is as pleasant as a baby can be about 90% of the time. Unfortunately the 10% of the time that she is mad... BOY IS SHE MAD! The kid has a set of pipes like I have never heard. Thank goodness she is mostly happy. She is sleeping well (usually from 9:30pm til about 7 or 8am) eating reasonably well (3-6 ounces 5 times a day) and playing lots. Her "BFF" by far and away is Genna, man does she love that girl. She also gets a real kick out of Will and Jordan. She is an absolute joy.

Abby - Miss Abby is also making big strides. Her PT is going well and she is holding up her head great. She is the silliest baby I have ever known. Sometimes she just starts to smile over nothing at all. Her laugh is enough to make an entire room full of adults laugh hysterically. She especially loves when the boys dance around and sing. Tonight she was laughing like crazy at Jordan dancing all silly. She is sleeping okay (not great ;>) ), eating well (4-6 ounces 5 times a day) and spends as much time as possible chewing on her toys. She loves her Pop and can't get enough of her Daddy. She has a smile that can light up a room.

The Tired Parents: We are exhausted but good. Motherhood is everything I ever wanted and more. I cannot imagine my life without them. Brian is working his butt off since this is his busy time of year. We are both looking forward to him being off Christmas week. We might even go away for a night! I will be teaching an internet course this Spring. I never imagined I would be working this soon but since I can work from home I can't pass up the money. All in all life is good... crazy but good.

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
