Binky, pacifier, soother, Nuk-Nuk, mute button, and my grandma’s choice nickname, pipe. These items were a lifesaver and a nightmare for me. During a routine daily check by our pediatrician we had noticed a bump on my daughters stomach. She was taken to have an ultra sound and came back with a Soothie in her […]

What do we want? SLEEP! When do we want it? ALL. THE. TIME! Parents of multiples are tired, and for good reason. Keeping up with twins or more is exhausting in itself, but add to that the sleep deprivation, plus inconsistent sleeping patterns from teething, colds, growing pains, or for seemingly no good reason whatsoever, […]

I was so excited that they were eating calamari and broccoli and olives! Their taste buds were […]
