Hey y'all! I'm sure you've noticed I haven't posted much on the blog lately... 9 months to be exact... ridiculous, I know. I tend to overbook myself and put my hobbies aside in the meantime, something I really need to work on. Hopefully you've been keeping in touch with me via social media and haven't missed too much but in case you have here is a brief summary of the last 9 months...
A & S turned 3 in March, they had their first "friend" birthday party which was a lot of fun. The theme was Minnie Mouse and Thomas and Friends, it was super cute and they loved it. Let's be honest though, 3 is rough... sweet, fun and adventurous but ROUGH! So many things have gotten easier... they communicate, they're potty trained, they can do things for themselves (when they want), they sleep - in our bed- but they sleep, they are sweet and loving but my goodness the will of a 3 year old is strong and the will of two 3 year olds is even stronger. God willing, we will survive this season of parenthood and be on to a new season soon.
I continue to stay at home, write for Oklahoma City Moms Blog, manage membership for our local Mothers of Multiples group, public relations for Oklahoma Mothers of Multiples and soon managing membership for our local MOMs Club Chapter as well. We spend a lot of time attending and hosting playgroups, going to our nieces ball games, participating in gymnastics, dance and soon t-ball and likely swimming lessons. A will have her first dance recital in June, which we're all looking forward to. Participating in extra-curricular activities has been really, really good for their socialization and growth - they're doing so well.
We recently started and by started I mean just that, working on doing some home renovations. 6.5 years ago we bought our first home, with that came along a list of upgrades. Well, life got busy between planning a wedding, going to college, working and having twins, the only thing we ever marked off our list was paint. Now we've started on our master bathroom floors, with rest of the house to follow. My husband thinks he can DIY the floors to save money, we'll see how this goes, I currently have an out of order bathroom. Sharing a bathroom with 3 others really isn't fun. We will also be replacing our roof soon - the joys of living in Oklahoma during Spring.
Other than that, we've just stayed busy with the typical adventures of having 3 year olds. I promise to start posting more often and really focusing on the blog, as it's something I enjoy and would love to get up and going again! Connecting with other mama's is something I'm passionate about so I'll be around more often! In the meantime, be sure to follow me on social media for the latest updates!
