Welcome Home


Eli and Ella weren’t impressed with their welcome home sign.

In fact, they didn’t even blink an eye.

Tucked inside their cozy car seats, they slept through the whole thing.

But coming home for the first time is a big event and needs to be celebrated.

So while the babies slept, Mommy and Daddy and Nonnie rejoiced…….

…..and took a nap.

Best party ever.

Baby Watch Day 4


These two peas-in-a-pod have been sitting on my kitchen counter since January.

Dear friends put on a baby shower for the twins and their momma.

 Every cupcake at the party was topped with these sweet peas.

This is how I’ve been picturing the babies on the day of their birth.

Two darling little faces peeking out from their pod, both with big smiles.

And a pink bow in her hair.

Baby Watch Day 6

I came into the world on a quiet Sunday afternoon in November.

The Green Bay Packers lost to the New York Giants 20-3 that day.

Other than that, there wasn’t much news to report.


On the day PB was born, there was an earthquake and a tsunami.

march 9

That should tell you something.

There’s a 50 – 50 chance of snow on the 18th.

That’s a good forecast for twins.

Baby Watch Day 7

wombmatesWhen I was a freshman in college, I spent part of a semester living in a two-person dorm room with two other people.  That makes three people (I told you I went to college) in a little bitty space.  We had a triple-decker bunk bed and I got the top, which was about twelve inches from the ceiling.  We all got along just fine, but after a while, it got a little cramped.  Having two roommates was an interesting experience but not one I’d care to repeat.

I wonder if my twin grandchildren are starting to feel like it’s time to find a bigger place.

They have been good little roommates, but there’s a nice crib waiting for them with lots of room for stretching.
