From Summer to Fall

A few nights ago, it got as low as 31 degrees.

Yep. Below freezing. 

Now, I don't know about you, but I'm not really ok with that. Thankfully, it's otherwise been in the 50s.

Whatever. Summer is officially over. But it was a good summer so I'm ok with that. Being pregnant and super uncomfortable and then having the boys earlier than expected, there really wasn't much done in the way of excursions, but we kept busy. Ok, we kept Keira busy. And hey, that's what was important.

And now it's time to get ready for chilly temperatures. The coats and hats are coming out. Some thicker than others. Last years snow clothes still fit. In fact, they fit better than they did last year. I love that.

Know why? Because last week reaffirmed my hatred of shopping. Toddler slippers are apparently my Archenemy. Yep, with a capital A. It took going to 4 stores to find these cute little fuzzy foot covers.

And one of my favorite things about colder weather? Our pellet stove kicks on. I seriously love our stove. It blows nice toasty warm air and is so cozy. There is nothing like snuggling under a blanket in front of it.

 30 degree nights? I've got plenty of pellets and loads of coffee. I'm ready.

Back in the Saddle Again

Lets face it. 3 kids, all under 3 years old, is not conductive to productivity. Especially when that productivity requires sitting at a computer. And with 2 of those 3 being newborns, let's just say, sleep is highly valued around here and we take what we can get. 

But I love blogging. I do. I love writing up these posts and showing off my crazy adorable little hellions angels. I love sharing what we've been up, what crafty things I've done or how the kids have grown.

So I'm going to try posting more often. Maybe one or two a week to start. I'm not sure how well I'll do, all things considered. But hey, you have to start somewhere, right?

Photo Post

I know. This is what you want. The reason you all look at my blog. To see photos of my kids. Lets face it, they're cute as the dickens. Not that I'm biased or anything, right?

And yeah, I've been a bit lax on the updates. There's been a ton of stuff going on around here, to say the least and blogging has taken a bit of a back seat. Hopefully, a lot of it will settle down soon and I can get back into the swing of things.

So here's a couple cute pics of my little trio. Enjoy.

2 Month Update

I can't believe 2 months have gone by since Lucian and Remy were born.

They're amazing. Their doctor is thrilled at how good they're doing. They've more than doubled their weights.

Lucian weighs 11 pounds and 7 ounces and is 22.25 inches long. Remy weighs 11 pounds and 4 ounces and is 22 inches long. These numbers put them around 30th percentiles for height and 45th percentiles for height for actual age. For an adjusted age of 3 weeks, it puts them in the high 90s for both. Yikes. (I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. Keira was 97th percentile for her first year.)

They even look so different from when they were in the hospital. They're filling out and getting more hair. Their eyes are turning brown and they're looking more alike than ever.
