A Little Update

As the days fly by, I think of our little blog so often when I’m in the middle of doing dishes, working or snuggling a sick kid for the 10th time since we woke up 3 hours ago. I feel sad for missing out on capturing the memories of the day and I find a […]

Sounds that make my heart happy

Tonight as I’m bustling about cleaning the house so Monday doesn’t quite feel so overwhelming I had to stop because I heard something. I heard a sound that makes my heart happy. At this moment it’s listening to Patrick and Sig having one of their nightly parties. She asks him, “what did you make me […]

Happy 4th Birthday Signe!

4 years old! Wow. It feels like I was just figuring out the post for Sig turning 3 and here we are, now she’s 4. In the past year Sig has gone from an adorable 3 year old almost-could-call-her-a-kid to an independent, mostly sweet no-doubt-about-it-you’re-a-kid kid. Man alive, Sig, you amaze me everyday. Today, after […]

It’s the little things

The big things intimidate me a lot right now so let’s focus on the little things in life. This morning Tryg read me a book for honestly 10 minutes. It was like listening to a Chinese audio track with the occasional word in English. He was so proud when he was done. Today Sig taught […]

Her bathroom will be grey because it’s a nice color. ┬áMy bathroom should be black because it matches my computer and my mouse for said computer. “It would be a nice color don’t you think?” I appreciate the […]

Sick, tired and funny

And it’s June. Where did May go? For that matter, April seems to have disappeared too. My mom told me long ago that the older you get the faster time goes by and I guess I’ve reached that critical point because it’s flying by and I’m just getting more behind everyday. We’ve been dealing with […]

Postpartum Depression

Let’s take a post to not focus on the kids and talk about the biggest thing going on in our lives for the past year – Postpartum depression. Early into my pregnancy with Tryg depression set in. I was in counseling during my pregnancy trying to keep it under control and I was low but […]

Happy 1st Birthday Tryg!

One year ago I was in the final week of pregnancy and looking forward to my appointment on the 25th when we would schedule my induction. Little did I know less than 12 hours after that appointment (that I moved up from 4 pm to 10 am because I had been in labor the last […]
