And here we are – Molly and Clara are 5 months old.  What has happened on this blog over the past 30 days is a pretty good indication of how much free time I’ve had.  It’s been crazy.  Wonderful, but absolutely crazy.  The girls get more and more fun every day, and it’s hard to […]

There is a fancy grocery store near my office that I sometimes stop by when I need some particularly hard-to-find ingredient (read: overpriced and imported) that I will inevitably carry around in my purse all day long.  (This sometimes results in disaster like that time I broke an entire bottle of kalamata olives.) On Thursday I stopped by […]

Molly and Clara – 4 Months

I was looking back at old blog posts, and rediscovered my own wonderings about what the future would hold almost exactly a year ago, only a couple weeks before we knew that the future would hold a baby (or babies as the case would turn out to be).  Sometimes I still feel glimmers of that sense […]

I crave community in this big city we call home.  There are glimmers of community all around, but sometimes we have to go looking for them to remember that we have our own niche among the masses.  Having the girls makes me realize just how important it is that we continue to carve out a corner […]

Vegetables.  I remember those.  I think we used to eat them back before we had two newborns and the washing machine wasn’t running on a 24-hour cycle. Kidding.  We’ve totally been eating vegetables.  There are pickles at the bottom of the chicken shawarma we order from the Lebanese take-out place. This Farmer’s Market Polenta is a solid […]

I always want to walk in the door now and scoop up both my girls, but it’s surprisingly difficult to hold two wriggly 3-month-olds at one time.  Fortunately, after 3 months of practice, I’ve learned to hold one girl while doing a variety of other tasks, including folding laundry, putting on make-up, and reading Squishy Turtle […]

Clara and Molly celebrated their third month birthday last week are already barreling towards their fourth. In another season of life, I’d be disappointed that I didn’t get this snapshot of life recorded on the exact day I’d hoped to, but life has changed now in so many welcome ways. It’s hard to think about […]

First, a moment to celebrate the fact that the little ladies slept from 7pm to 3am last night.  I fed them, declared them the best babies that ever lived, and put them back to bed.  The good night’s sleep resulted in lots of smiles when they woke up again at 6.  I ate half of one of these […]
