Family Photos at Home

Melissa Gayle Photography | Palms to Pines | Romy and Piper Twin Girl Nursery
Recently we had family photos done at home by photographer Melissa Gayle. She just sent the final images and I love them so much, so of course I’m sharing them on here. Lately I’ve been so emotional about the girls – maybe because they turn one next month? So having these photos means so much to me! I feel like Melissa captured so much of the girls personalities in these photos, and what our time…

Favorite One-Pieces for the End of Summer

I seriously can’t believe summer is almost over! Since it’s my first summer after having the babies (and due to that fun weight I gained this month after I stopped breastfeeding) I’ve found myself wearing one-pieces more than ever before. I feel better in them, and they’re easier to keep on while wrangling the babies. There are so many good ones out there right now – here are some of my favorites… White Striped One…

Breastfeeding, Twins, and the NICU

Breastfeeding Twins in the NICU
I’ve been promising a post about breastfeeding for a while now, so I’m finally attempting it. On one hand I want to answer the questions you’ve had, but on the other hand I hesitate to share because I feel like it’s pretty personal, and I think there’s also a part of me that wants to avoid any judgement. But as usual, I do want to share in case there’s anyone who can relate or if…

Baby Items Worth the Splurge

Choosing a Bassinet | Happiest Baby | SNOO
We all know that there is a lot of STUFF involved in having a baby. I did a LOT of research while I was pregnant on what stuff I wanted to invest in. Since I was having twins and knew we wouldn’t have help, I really wanted to find the things that were going to make life easier. We have used a few big-ticket items that are definitely not cheap, and people ask me all…

CHOC Children’s Foundation | Event with Romy and Piper

CHOC CHILDREN’S FOUNDATION EVENT Last month, I was asked to speak at a fund raising event for CHOC. At first, when I was asked to speak, the things I would need to share felt deeply personal and I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to do it. But I knew that I wanted to try, because I am so grateful for the start our girls were given. Blake and I knew from the beginning of…

Shoes in the House with Crawling Babies

Crawling Babies and Shoes in the House | Birdies House Slippers
You know you’re an adult when you own multiple pair of “house slippers”. Or maybe it’s more that I’m now a mom of infant twins who spends lots of time at home in comfy clothes. In all seriousness though, as the girls are started to scoot around on their bellies (and getting so close to crawling!) I can’t contain them on their play mat anymore. I keep watching them put their faces and mouths on…
