A new begining   Leave a comment

So I am going to start blogging more, really I am.  I figure that maybe if I switch my blog and start over, then I will be tempted to blog a little more.  My goal is once a week, so we’ll see how it works out.

I’ll start off with a little bit about my family and we’ll go from there.

I am a stay at home mom to 2 1/2-year-old twin boys!  They were born at 26 weeks and 5 days and they have amazed me from Day 1!  They staying in the hospital for 107 days and came home from the hospital 2 weeks after my due date.  And they came home from the hospital on the same day, which is kind of un heard of from what the NICU staff told us. They are busy busy boys, but I love every minute of it!  I am just so thankful that I have them in my life to make it so busy. Their names are Ethan and Nathan.  I’m not sure what we were thinking, naming them so close together, but we did it, and I don’t think we mix them up that often.  They are not identical, so I think that helps.  They are like night and day.  Ethan, is older, but smaller. And he has dirty blond hair.  Nathan is younger, a lot bigger and had brown hair.  Nathan looks a lot like me, and Ethan is a good mix of both of us!

I am married to a wonderful man named Jason.  We started dating in 2004, shortly after his divorce, and we were married on Feb 3, 2007.  Seems like just yesterday, hard to believe that its been almost 4 years already. Jason is a self-employed lobster fisherman.  Sounds pretty good but its a lot of work. And the funniest party about it is that Jason and I and the kids for that matter all hate lobster.  We wouldn’t eat it if we had to! I think we are the only ones in our family that don’t like it!

I am a step mom to a 10-year-old boy, named Tyler and a 7 1/2 year old girl named Hannah.  They are great kids and I really do enjoy all the time we get to spend together, which would be more time if we were allowed, but that’s not the case, so we enjoy the time that is given.

We also have a dog.  She was our “first” child together, kind of like a trial phase.  I figured if we could raise a dog, then kids wouldn’t be so bad.  Oh how wrong I was!  Her name is Kandie, and I’m pretty sure she doesn’t realize that she is a dog!  She sleeps on the couch and hardly misses anything.  She is def. one of the family.  The boys love her, and she loves everything Nathan does.  He can jump on her, pull her hair and do pretty much anything he wants, Ethan on the other hand can’t even walk by her without her getting up and moving, or leaving the room!

So this about sums up my family.  We are kinda crazy, but I wouldn’t trade any of it!
