Hello Toddlerhood. Goodbye Sanity.

Total blog slacker here, I know. Things have been a little hectic lately and blogging has been on my mind but pushed to the side. My nerves are worn and my sanity pushed to the limits with these little blessings lately! I must admit with the big 2nd birthday just around the corner (HOLY COW!) I can see the "terrible twos" running full speed in our direction. My precious babies are turning into mischievous little....dare I say it... ttt....toddlers! Every time I turn around someone is ripping up, climbing, eating, throwing, or getting into something. This is just SOME of what's been going on in our house lately and just a FEW of the reasons this momma is needing "Mom's Night Out" more frequently!
Here we have Korbin and onlooker Baxlyn attempting to make an escape out the front door.
My little innocent Kylee reaching in for the Christmas tree (one of the biggest no-no's right now)
With age comes independence. Miss Thang here REFUSING to ride in the choo choo with her bros and sister. Notice them WAY ahead of her as she struts along with Mickey through the aisles of Target.
Korbin reaching for the candles...
Below - quadruple the trouble. The rule is you can sit on the couch not stand, climb, pull on OR swing from the blinds... "Yeah OK Mom, sure"
Another group effort to completely destroy the boys' room. Situations like these I walk in and am guaranteed to look down and hear at least once little innocent "Uh-Oh?!".
Once again, Korbin using the bins to his advantage and reeeaching up to the counter.
Here we have the boys searching for the long lost rattle under Kylee's crib. While they're down the girls see the perfect opportunity to yank hair and stomp on them. Ahh my sweet little darling girls...
Here we have 3 acts in one. Brody and Baxlyn getting after the tree and Korbin making a run for the window sill and blinds...Last but not least one baby pulling out the wipes as fast as he can while the other attempts to put them all back in as quickly as possible...
Stay tuned! Coming up our visit(s) with S A N T A !


  1. I have been reading your blog for awhile, but I don't think I have ever commented. I am a Mom of triplets (2 boys and a girl) who are 21 months. Yes, 2 is just around the corner! Can I just say, "AMEN" to everything you said!! I feel my sanity slowly slipping away these days with all of the constant motion from these kiddos. Getting into everything, always on the go, and testing their limits AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE! Good luck to you and just wanted to say that I can completely relate and it's great to know I'm not alone in how exhausted I feel mentally (and physically!) right now. With all that being said, absolute blessings they are and I wouldn't change a thing! (Mine were born at 28 weeks 5 days in March 2009, similar to your quaddies!) Have a blessed holiday season!

  2. Heather, Our lives sounds exactly the same right now! Every picture you've posted is a scene from our house. Good job on attempting to blog. I've been sticking to facebook for the time being.

  3. Oh, how entertaining is this!!I have laughed all the way through this. I know this is frustrating and tiring but like Jenn said, you wouldn't have it any other way. Oh how we have all prayed for these babies/children. God Bless them and YOU!! And THANK GOD they are able to do all these things!

  4. I think it is great, alot more work for you but just seeing them doing everything they should be doing at their age is a miracle. Very funny post. Keep your sanity and patience you have help don't hessitate to ask for it.

  5. I don't know how you do it! :) You'll look back on these pictures one day and giggle at them.
