Transformation complete

Well, the last piece of the Mom puzzle is in place.  I sold my little two door car and bought a MomMobile.

In a few days, we'll watch the girls attack their first birthday cake.  Teeny Tiny is cruising and Middie Biddie is doing a floppy crawl like action, and both are clinging to me all day.

I'm starting to wonder how much blogging I'm going to be doing in the future.  While this was originally meant to be an online baby book, because I knew I wouldn't ever sit down and make a real baby book, this blog became a very different story two months after I started it.  There doesn't seem to be much story left.  From loss, to the return of the bitter infertile, to harrowing pregnancy, to post partum depression, through the milestones of two babies.

We're going to transition to toddlers soon.  During the first year, life with babies changes significantly every month.  I'm guessing I've got another 6 months or so big changes (walking and talking) and from there on out, each day will probably be very similar to the day before.  I don't know if I have the writing skills to make what is really a pretty monotonous job, entertaining.  If I knew how, I would probably turn this blog into a book with the first birthday being the last page.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not giving up this space.  This is still the easiest way for me to record those things in life that I want to record.  My kids are going to say funny things and do funny things and I'll need a place to record those things.  But I do kind of feel like I'm writing episodes for a show that has jumped the shark.


  1. I'm also kind of feeling that way about my blog. I don't know what to say. I can update the milestones but I don't know what to talk about. I guess I am glad you are not giving up the space because I like reading your posts even if you don't know what to say and there is a lot of space between them. I get sad when people say "okay I'm done with this blog, good bye!" I'll still be reading, whatever you post. :)

  2. I hope you keep writing. I have 7 month old twin boys and I love reading what you've been going through as your girls grow. Helps me feel less alone. Thanks for sharing in such a relatable style.

  3. I hope you do continue to write more and post more photos too, well if you have time that is!

  4. I check in every day. Maybe even someday I'll see you out in public. We don't live that far from each other. I live in Lynnwood. Congrats on the MomMobile.

  5. I hope you keep writing, I enjoy your blog!


Please share your thoughts! It makes me feel like I have friends.
