About Me

My photo
Nashville, TN, United States
I am a mom to amazing twin girls, a wife, and I work full time. I battled infertility for 2 years and over the course of treatments, a twin pregnancy, and raising twins I managed to gain about 80 lbs. I’ve lost about 50 lbs so far and would like to lose another 50 in my quest to become a hot mama.

My daughter did what???

I arrived at daycare to pick up the girls yesterday.  When I opened the door, Stella took off running down the hallway.  After chasing her down the hall and carrying her back to the classroom, I looked at Harper who was sitting on the floor smiling up at me and said "Hey lazy, when are you going to start walking."  Her teacher looked at me and said "Who?  That one [pointing at Harper].  She's been walking all over the classroom today but she won't do it if you ask her to."

Seriously...my kid can walk and I've never seen her do it. What a stinker!

My big girls

My girls are getting so big right before my eyes.  I still can't believe that I have toddlers.  The ones that don't need me constantly but can play all by themselves and push away when I try to hug them. They are doing new things every day that just amaze me.


  • Walking....well running now.  She went from one step here and there to running in 2 short weeks.
  • She loves giving kisses...or at least I think they are kisses....ok, actually she likes to open her mouth and try to bite my lips will drooling all over me.  I'll take it.
  • She is the bully.  She loves to push her sister down if she is in the way and doesn't think twice about doing it.
  • When I ask her to say mama she smiles at me and whispers "dada"...maybe because she knows how bad I want her to say mama. It's really funny.
  • She is such a good eater.  She will eat her meat and veggies without a fight.  It's awesome. 
  • She has 4 teeth and a 5th on the way.
  • She's wearing size 3 diapers and 18 month clothing.


  • She has taken single steps at a time but really just lets her body weight fall over and hopes someone catches her.  She'll get there soon I'm sure.
  • She is my snuggler, especially when she is tired.  I love curling up with her because she doesn't push away. 
  • She leaves her sister alone with the exception of slapping.  She LOVES slapping people. Perhaps its the sound it makes, but there is nothing she loves more than giving her sis a big ole' slap across the face while they are bathing.
  • She is our vocal baby.  She just looks at me and talks on and on in her baby language.  I am sure she is telling me something.  What I don't know.  The girls seem to understand each other.  She can say "mama" "dada" "dog" and "cock."  Seriously.....I am still appalled that that is one of her words.  In all fairness it was because dad was talking about his rooster shirt which he jokingly said "Hey honey, look at this big cock."  Lesson learned. 
  • She is my finicky eater.  I usually put only the meat and veggies on their trays.  She will have a standoff with me until she gets fruit complete with scattering all of the meat and veggies all over the tray and floor with her hands.  She will eat almost any fruit you put in front of her though.
  • She has only 2 teeth and possibly 1 top one coming in.
  • She is wearing size 3 diapers and 18 month clothing as well.
