Catching Up

The days are busy, I am spread thin. As a result my blogging suffers--I apologize.

Thank you so much to everyone who continues to follow us on this journey. Here are a few updates:

My husband was laid off in August.

This week marked 20 beautiful months since the Snowflakes were born. It is hard to believe how quickly they have grown, the time is truly flying by. They are saying some words (more Bubba than Squeaks surprisingly) running and jumping everywhere. They love books, give kisses, and do lots, and lots, and lots of giggling everyday. They also have hit some really cool milestones, like ENJOYING putting their toys away at the end of the day, so that's awesome. With twins, so much of each day seems to fly by that I almost can't believe it when I sit back and see how much they have changed right before my eyes. Blink and you'll miss something it seems.

They are healthy and happy and such joys. 

Here is a fairly recent picture. It's not as easy as one may think to get a pic of two toddlers looking at the camera, as is evidenced here, but I can't help but think those rays of sunlight are Peyton, and that all three of my children are with me in this one. Bubba is in my arms, Squeaks is in the background pushing her car.

And here is a closeup of them:

Bubba left, Squeaks right.

I hope this post finds you all feeling some measure of joy in your day to day life, and that those still early in their loss, or struggling with infertility, can see where my family is, versus where it was two years ago, and know that this is possible. 

There is joy waiting for you after the sorrow. 

There is a light at the end of the tunnel.


  1. The idea of Peyton as the rays of light make me smile.

    Also, Squeaks' hair...OMG! <3

  2. What a beautiful vision of Peyton as the rays of sunshine. Beautiful.

    I'm so sorry about your husband's job. I hope something comes through ASAP...

  3. I can't believe how big they have gotten!

  4. Thanks for checking in. So sorry to hear about the job. That must be hard at a difficult time in the year to begin with. Prayers for a new, better job soon. The Snowflakes are adorable. It was especially nice to see your big smile in a picture along with all three kids. :)

  5. WOW! The twins are totally different now! They are no longer infants but children! So cute...I love their crazy kid at that age. Thank you for the update, hope see another soon. Hugs-

  6. That picture with the sunshine...just precious. I love it.

  7. Oh my gosh they are adorable and that ray of sunshine is absolutely Peyton shining on all of you.

  8. Life with my little Rainbow Lorelei has but my blogging in the back seat too. Seems to me that is you are blogging at the same capacity right now you are not as present for your snowflakes or something is truly troubling you. I am glad for the update. We have the week off this week so I hope to get a little blog time in, I have too many ideas ping ponging around my head. HUGS!
