This time around


Addicting little buggers.

And not just because they're full of sugar. There is something about the unpredictability- once you bite down, you never know what's going to happen next. Unfortunately, if you are nursing a baby, they make diaper changes just as unpredictable. Once the diaper is off, you never know...

Don't worry, I didn't take a picture of that.

Instead, I will grace you with another fun image:


Our little jaundiced kid soakin' up some rays. Yay for big sisters with style.

He's a month old today. When the twins hit this milestone, they were just reaching full gestation age, Mia wasn't two yet, and I was getting my gallbladder out. I can't believe how different everything is this time around. Even with Zach working 80-90 hours a week, this is hands down 10 times better. I have three little "helpers," one of which can actually help. I don't have to fight with this kid to keep him awake during feedings. My body is in tact. I'm not moving out of state any time soon. I've just got to remember all of this when the girls wake up at the butt-crack of dawn, and I've just finished a feeding that started at 4 and ended with an unpredictable S'more diaper explosion.

And just in case you forgot...



Mia didn't want to finish hers.

She actually wanted S'mLESS.

Whose child is this?

Mmmmmm. Too bad I have almost none of the ingredients for that. I may have marshmallows. Thanks a whole bunch. Not like I'm super-suggestible when it comes to food right now!

I'm sorry, I have to say it: DUH! Of course this time around would be easier!! Did you have any doubts? With everything you had going on while the twins were babies, PLUS having 2 babies (!) there are really very few situations where this one would have been harder. PS those smores look good. I'll trade you some cake balls for one.

I was one child who also liked S'mless. I don't like marshmallows unless they are in rice crispy treats.

That little boy is certainly a handsome guy!
