Mother’s Day #2 turned out pretty nice, despite having absolutely nothing planned for the day. Hurray for spontaneity! I had received two adorable outfits from Feltman Brothers a couple weeks ago and decided that Mother’s Day would be the perfect day to try them on and do a little photo shoot on the porch. (You can read more about Feltman Brothers here). Grumpy faces aside, the girls looked stinkin’ adorable in their little vintage-inspired, hand embroidered bubble rompers. Love them! After taking roughly five gazillion photos, we had dinner and my husband gave me a Mother’s Day coupon book that featured […]
Yep, I still have twins. 😉 Sadly, when the girls hit the 1-year mark and my monthly “photoshoots” came to an end, I pretty much stopped regularly sharing photos of them on here. (Pretty crummy of me since the blog is named after them and all.) In all honesty, I’m not sure how many of my current readers really give a flip about my kiddos. Or how much I should even share in a public space. What started as a personal blog about my twin pregnancy has evolved into something completely different and I’m fine with that. But the truth […]
Eternal Girl is an Etsy shop specializing in handmade jewelry and greeting cards. Julia, the owner/creator, lovingly hand draws all of the designs herself. Nearly all of her pieces — including necklaces, rings, and earrings — are inspired by henna and Mehndi art. Flowers, butterflies, hearts, and celestial designs are the most common themes featured. She also accepts custom orders and can tweak her designs to give you a truly one of a kind piece of jewelry. When I first looked through her shop, I was immediately drawn to the rose pendant (of course!). Since she does custom work, I […]
10 months! Crawling! Teeth cutting! Puffs! Things are getting exciting around here. The girls are VERY mobile and crawling around like crazy. Everly’s first bottom teeth just started poking through over the last 24 hours. Chloe’s are still hiding, but she can sit up on her own, so she’s got Ev beat on that one. They both know what’s up with cereal puffs now, and no longer let them fall out of their mouths. You go, girls. Eat those puffs! They get smarter & sillier every day and I can’t imagine life without these little nerds.
The little rosebuds are a 4th of a year old! Halfway to their half-a-year mark! Holy crapola! To demonstrate how much they’ve grown (ha!), they were much more cooperative during their photoshoot this month. Even before we changed Everly’s diaper of doom. Impressive. Without further ado… here be the photos:
This photo could NOT be more perfect. It tells the story of the girls’ past month better than I could ever explain in a hundred blog posts. Yes, this past month has been pretty damn brutal here in the Rose house. As I wrote in my previous post, the girls were plagued with tummy troubles, filling the house with blood-curdling wails and nosehair-curling(??) farts. It was a challenging month, to say the least. With that said, we shouldn’t have been surprised when the girls refused to cooperate for their monthly photo session. Nevertheless, we dressed them in Halloween-themed onesies, gathered […]
Everly & Chloe are ONE MONTH old today!!! Crazy. One month in… aaaand already I feel like a bad mom. Why? Because my camera battery died. When? Right after I took their first “one month” photo. Yep. I only got one shot before it crapped out. A practice one, at that. So the picture below, of my little one’s (ones’s?) big milestone, was not taken by me. For SHAME! 🙁 Uh… I did edit it though… That’s… something.
Ok, here’s the dealio — I feel like blogging, but I don’t really feel like thinking, know what I mean? The compromise? A nice little bullet-ed list of random thoughts/events/etc… Brilliant! Here goes… Tomorrow I would have been 38 weeks pregnant. It also would have been the date of my scheduled c-section. Crazy. I truly cannot imagine still being pregnant at this point. Sooo happy that they’re already here! Mike and I FINALLY got out of the house together on Friday evening. It was the first time I’d been “out” since being put on bed rest at 28 weeks (mid-June!). We went […]
Here it is! The time lapse project that Mike & I started at 17 weeks is now complete! It could have been longer, but frankly, being pregnant made me lazy. Very lazy. Some days, just getting me to drag my bloated booty upstairs to the nursery was like pulling teeth. Not to mention the fact that I couldn’t be bothered to put on makeup most of the time and was paranoid that I would look hideous. Oh, and then there was the whole “stuck on bedrest from 28 weeks” thing, resulting in a shorter than intended video. Thankfully, despite all […]
Just a quick post to say that the rosebuds have arrived! They were born on Friday, August 3rd (at 34 weeks & 3 days) via c-section, due to my increasingly high blood pressure. Baby A (Everly Autumn Rose) was born at 2:42am, weighing 4lb 9oz. Baby B (Chloe Winter Rose) was born at 2:43am, weighing 4lb 10oz. They both spent about 3 days in the NICU for minor issues and were able to come home with us yesterday afternoon. I’ll write up a proper birth post at some point. — As I’ve been told, babies are big time-hogs! 🙂
Uhhhh… I just found out that “2 Little Rosebuds” is a Gospel Bluegrass song by some guy named Red Ellis. I’m a little weirded out… 2 Little Rosebuds
Tomorrow I will be 15 weeks pregnant with not one, but two little rosebuds. Yep, that’s them in the photo over there, hanging out in my uterus, listening to the Jerry Springer show. (Perhaps I should start choosing more child-friendly background noise?) I refer to them as “rosebuds” not because it’s cutesy & sounds better than “fetuses” (ew!), but because my last name is “Rose”. Sooo… little baby Roses = rosebuds. Alright, fine, it’s a little cutesy. Onward… My husband & I only planned on having one baby. Total. EVER. So it was quite a shock when we went for […]
