Taking the Babies to the Beach | The Stuff

Beach day with Babies | What to bring
We attempted our first real beach day with the girls last weekend. We were intimidated at the idea of it – mostly about how much stuff we’d have to haul from wherever we found parking out to the sand ;). But I told Blake it’s only going to get crazier when the girls start crawling, eating sand, and wanting to be in the water! The girls did so well, so I guess I’m posting this…

Baby Monitor Solution: Nest Cam

Nest Cam - Palms to Pines | Best Baby Monitor for Twins
Ok, so deciding on a monitor has been a long process for me, considering I started looking when I was first pregnant and now my babies are 8 months old. But we FINALLY settled on an option I love, so obviously now I also love telling people about it ;). The fact that we were having twins made things a bit more complicated – I either needed two separate monitors, a monitor with two cameras…

Preparing to Transition the Babies to their Own Room

Transitioning from bassinet to crib
Ok – so I’m admittedly having a hard time moving the girls into their own room at night. At first I thought it was just because I’m still traumatized from the girls spending their first three months in the hospital. Leaving them at night was one of very hardest parts about that whole experience. I just wished and wished for the first night I’d have them in our room with us to come, and there…

Teething Recommendations

Teething Tips | Homeopathic Teething Remedies
So the girls are officially teething! When they first started, I was in denial because it felt so early. I’d also been dreading teething, because I knew things would get tougher for all of us. I think a lot of people didn’t actually believe me, but I knew their teeth were close. Sure enough, after a couple weeks of struggle, Romy’s two bottom teeth poked through. The very next day, Piper’s came through! Must be…

SNOO Review: Just Get It

Romy and Piper | SNOO Bassinet Review | Best Baby Bassinet
When people see us with the twins, we can always count on a few reactions. Lots of people want to know how we ended up with twins (Was it IVF? Do they run in your family? If you’re wondering the same thing, you can find answers to questions like these here.) Another question we get all of the time is, “Oh my gosh, are you SO TIRED?” We always look at each other, laugh and…

Romy and Piper’s Nursery

Palms to Pines Nursery Reveal | Romy and Piper | Twin Girls Bohemian Tropical Nursery
We’ve actually had our nursery mostly done for a long time now. I got a good chunk of it done early on in my pregnancy, which turned out to be a good thing since I went on bedrest at 28 weeks. The babies came at 30 weeks, and then were in the hospital for three months. On the day I was discharged from the hospital, Blake printed a few pictures to put up by the…

Baby Stuff | Micuna Rocker + Bassinets

Micuna Chair | Twin Rocker + Bassinets | Palms to Pines
Of all of the fun twin/baby things we have in our house, this rocker/bassinet combo is definitely the one we get asked about the most. It’s a great conversation piece for sure ;). After being in the hospital for 3 long months, we walked in the front door with our girls for the first time and realized we had no idea where to set them down. The first thing we saw were these bassinets, so…
