I take a lot of pictures of the kids and when I look through my image catalog there are so many pictures of Juliana and Ruslan laughing and showing their personality. I have fewer pictures of Wyatt and it’s not because I don’t spend much time with him. In fact I spend a lot . . . → Read More: He is Always by My Side
I wrote this the first week of September, but then Ruslan was injured and all of my focus was on him so I never got around to hitting publish.

Where does the time go? I can’t believe that they are 6 weeks old already and my maternity leave is halfway over.
It is much easier to tell the boys apart in pictures now, because Ruslan is always wearing a bib. He has reflux and spits up huge amounts of his food – we . . . → Read More: 6 Weeks
The days go by so quickly between feedings, diaper changes and short naps when I try to take care of the other household activites. And that is with my mom here from 7:45 am to 10:00 pm every day…she goes back to work next week. Here’s what the boys have been up to the . . . → Read More: The Past 2 Weeks at Home
