Time for a change

Change is good, if it is for the right reasons.    And I think my reasons are good so I am going to be changing this little blog up a bit.   My poor blog has been neglected lately and I aim to do something about that.   I have been doing some thinking(scary) and I do believe I have come up with a few good ideas to make this blog more fun and maybe draw in a few more readers.  I am trying to get into doing blog reviews for children's products and I would like a bigger following on my blog as well as pinterest.   I also just like to "meet" new people,  I live in small town Iowa and can use all the friends I can get.  :)  So if you read my blog and are not a follower please become one,  all you have to do is click the "Join this site" button on the right side of the page. 
   So starting Monday I will be trying some new things,  different kinds of post, food and menus,  maybe some guest bloggers and product reviews( I will show you some of my favorite baby/toddler products)  and I will still keep you up to date on my big girl and the little duo.    I hope you all will find the changes to your liking and share things you might find interesting with others.  I would appreciate it very much.

The Sunshine In My Day

 Blake and Brenna are now 2 1/2 months old and are growing like little weeds.  I think Brenna is going to be a chunky monkey just like her big sister was.   When they got out of the hospital we joined a "formula research" and all of our formula was provided and the little ones were given gift cards each month for participating, sounds like a great deal right.   Well to make a long story short, it did not agree with Brenna's tummy and I had a very unhappy baby, so we switched formula(happy baby).  Blake seemed to be doing ok, but the Dr. wanted him to be eating more,  which he did not want to do and he began only taking 13 or 14 oz a day (instead of 24oz) and would cry after every 1 oz or so.  So we switched his formula also,  we saw a difference in him overnight, he now eats as much as he is supposed to with no fussing.  So I guess my kids did not like being "test subjects",  it was a great idea, but I would rather have to pay for the formula then have babies that are not gaining weight and are fussy.
 Piper is loving her job as big sister,  she is really enjoying them now that they are smiling and beginning to "talk" to her.   These three make everyday special(most of the time).
 And other big news is that the duo is now sleeping through the night,  WHOO-HOO!   They usually sleep 9-11 hours at night.  Actually I could not complain before, because they were only getting up once in the night anyway.  Usually at the same time so Eric and I would have a little date time(feeding babies) in the middle of the night.    So glad my husby helps with them, it is wonderful.
These two really do love each other.  If they are laying on their backs next to each other this is how you will mostly find them, arms intertwined.  Yesterday Blake was holding Brenna's hand but by the time I got the camera the moment had passed. :)     
   Hope you all enjoyed the update, I plan on keeping the blog updated more often now that I finally got my new computer hooked up.   The old one would take forever to upload photos and sometimes not even do that so that is my excuse for not updating(not that I have twins and a 4year old and a house to keep up).

Our Life(now)

 Getting these two to look at the camera at the same time(and not cry) is just about impossible...especially when they are wearing cute clothes.
 Our morning routine,  Piper helps for about 5min or so,  love that girl.
And wouldn't you know they are wearing jammies so the decide it is time to look at the camera.
We are enjoying our double blessing very much,  hope to have more updates for you soon.
