What It's Like Having 1 Baby After Twins

What It's Like Having 1 Baby After Twins

I’ve been wanting to write a post like this for a while now! Comparing what is has been like having one baby after having twins. I know a lot you have twins and have been on the fence having a third. 1. I know you are all afraid of having twins again. If you have fraternal twins then your odds are a lot higher having a second set than if you have identical twins. Our girls are identical so I knew there was still a change to have another set but I knew I wanted more kids so I was willing to have 4 if that’s what was in the cards for us! And 2. You have PTSD after having twins and don’t want to go through it again. Kidding. Kind of. Having twins in the newborn stage is really stressful, it’s constant and just a lot to manage. So I know a lot of you are just not wanting to have to go through it all over again.

Summer Recap

Summer Recap

Hey guys! As summer comes to an end I wanted to share some of my favorite pictures from these last few months. This summer felt like the busiest summer of my life. We really went on a ton of trips and each one was equally exhausting! Vacations with kids are definitely work, but looking back I'm so glad we did so much with the girls. We spent a lot of time in our bathing suits, at the beach, at the river and in our pool. I definitely got my fair share of vitamin d and am ready for colder weather, sweaters and football season!
