Hello Blog World!

Hello blog world.
It's me - Kristin.
I've missed you.

I have so much to write about.

My Snowflakes are one! I can hardly believe it.

We still aren't sleeping over here. Which may or may not be contributing to my lack of posts. I think if you took the last three nights, my husband and I may possibly have hit a combined total of five hours of sleep. It's exhausting. I'm not entirely sure why the babies are so off their usual 1-2 feedings a night schedule, but they are.

Let's see... what else?

My little Snowflakes are now 20 and 21 pounds, which explains why my knees pop when I carry them up and down the stairs! Bubba is talking up a storm saying "hi," "momma," "dadda," "hi dadda," and "all done!" Squeaks surprisingly is not one for making small talk, lots of noises and squeaking but only a few words - "hi," "mom," and "dadda," but she has been getting busy walking - she takes six to eight steps when she feels like it, then goes days in between when she doesn't.

Writing has been keeping me busy, busy, busy - or I should say attempting to write has been keeping me busy, busy, busy. I am in a mad dash to complete editing my novel in time for a writer's conference coming up this spring, although 'mad dash' may not be the right term because most nights, by the time the babies are put to bed and I sit down to type, I realize I am too tired to formulate coherent sentences and I give up. In fact, right now, I'm giving up. The babies are napping. I think I should be too.

Till next time...


  1. Glad to see you back. Even happier to see that things are going well (all except the sleeping thing). Sleeping: my kids tend to forgo their "schedule" when they start milestones like walking/talking...

  2. Glad to hear from you. Wow I can't believe the kids are already one! It seems like yesterday you were pregnant with them. Well it sounds like they are growing and blossoming just as they should, on their schedule.

  3. Can't believe they are one! I've been following you for a while and it just seems like the time flies in the blog world as quick as the real world! The lack of sleep will pass, I promise. I had one that nursed through the night until 18 months... and I thought I would never sleep again! But I do. And you will too!

  4. Awww...I can't believe they are already 1!!! Sorry about the sleep. This too shall pass. I need pictures of those babies. (In my head, they are still small babies).

  5. I hope you start getting some more sleep soon.

  6. So hard, isn't it? Sleep is SOOO elusive...and yet, you don't want to waste their sleep time on your sleeping because you want to get so much accomplished...but it's not a waste! You NEED sleep! Give yourself permission to nap when they are (if you can!)...bless your heart. Sending sleep vibes asap!
