Your One-Year-OldThe child from twelve to twenty-four months of age is a joy to have around - some of the time, that is. This child is growing at an incredible rate, learning to walk, learning to touch, learning to love, and learning to say "No!" for the first time. All of this can be quite a handful for the new parent.In this first book in the series from the renowned Gesell Institute, which includes Your One-Year-Old through Your Ten- to Fourteen-Year-Old, the authors discuss all important questions that concern the twelve to twenty-four-month-old child. They examine the various stages of development between infancy and toddlerhood: what new things the child can do; how the child acts with parents and other people; what the child thinks and feels.

thankful for twins





If I was in charge of my life, I never would have chosen to have twins. Not in a million years, especially not when I had a 2-y-o daughter and a 4-y-o son who were both nursing to sleep every night and still waking several times a night.

I'd read all the books about parenting. And I believed in "attachment parenting", and the idea that no matter what I should be there for my young kids, physically and emotionally, whenever they needed me. And I'd hit the wall: I was quickly becoming a wreck. I was exhausted and felt like I had not an ounce of time to myself, and nothing left to give my kids.

And then I found out we were expecting. And then, shortly thereafter, found out it was twins we were expecting. And all I could do was laugh. Not necessarily the confident laugh of "oh, God must have a plan for this all" - but the nervous, slightly hysterical laugh of someone who knows she's already well past her maternal capacity, who can't possibly do all that she needs to do for the two kids she has. Someone who is sick to death of tandem nursing and sleepless nights. Someone who is suddenly seized with the thought that no, what she really wanted was not marriage and family, but a nice quiet life in a solitary monastic cell somewhere up in the mountains.

Twins. Anyone who tells you that God only gives you what you can handle is incredibly naive. What I've discovered is that sometimes God gives you more than you can handle. On purpose. He brought me to my knees: because I should have been on my knees from the beginning. Because I really could NOT meet the needs of one child, let alone two preschoolers and two babies. Because I'm only human, and because God purposed for me to come to the end of myself so that I might learn to seek His strength and His love to meet the needs of my children.

I don't remember much about the first year of Mac and Bubbie's life. I remember waking up in the recliner next to the crib, and hearing a baby cry, and realizing that I thought I was nursing Mac, but it was Bubbie nursing; that I'd already switched babies at some point in the last hour, but couldn't remember it. I remember BigE and Chickie being so excited when I finally got both babies to sleep, because they hoped it meant I would bake cookies for them and play Candyland.... and all I wanted to do was sleep.

I remember putting Mac in the sling and Bubbie in the bouncer, and feeding them both Cheerios while Chickie and BigE played on the computer, and then switching Mac to the bouncer and Bubbie to the sling when they got fussy - all this time desperately watching the clock and hoping Daniel would be home at 5:06, which he could do if he left camp at five on the dot. Then I'd only have one baby and one toddler to take care of, and he could do something with the other two, and somehow we'd feed everyone supper. Frozen pizza again, dear? why yes, thank you, that sounds wonderful, mainly because I have no clean dishes left.

But I also remember waking up next to the crib and just laughing at the two little swaddled bundles sleeping next to each other. I remember seeing their personality differences early on: Bubbie the early riser, Mac the night owl. Mac the daredevil, Bubbie the extrovert. Mac the sly sneaky child, Bubbie with his heart on his sleeve.

And now, now that we're past the age of preemie sleep-apnea monitors and reflux medicine diapers and three-hour feedings, it's so nice to have twins. They play well together, much of the time. Mac and Bubbie's quickly developing gifts and personalities are always seen in opposition to each other, bringing their skills and interests into sharp relief against each other.

I've laughed twice as much and enjoyed all four children much more, having been brought to my knees - having realized that I cannot, in my own strength or virtue, meet their needs - having thrown myself on God's mercy and learned that He indeed is merciful. Hopefully, now that life is easier for the time being, I will not forget these things God has taught me through this unexpected, difficult, but very welcome gift. Thank you, God, for twins!

Lenny, Lenny & more Lenny!





I'm sure my Flickr friends are getting a little sick of seeing so many pics of Lenny ( even as cute as he is) but I just cant help it!
I think im a little ......worried.... since Louie died. Ive definitely been taking tons of pics, but, the funny thing is Lenny doesnt really DO much. These pics are taken at different times, on different days.
He likes what he likes, a creature of habit if you will.
I love him with all my heart and I cannot express enough how much my life has been enriched since he came into it. It was luck- something im not used to having- to see him on TV that night and then to be lucky ( yes, once again) to be choosen as his forever home.
Granted, he had some troubles adjusting, but now he seems happy to me. I know he's well cared for, thats a priority.
According to Cesar Milan, he might not meet all the critera for a healthy, happy, balanced dog, but I love him with all my heart and I know I will do anything to make him comfortable as well as feel loved- every minute of every day.
Did you know he's such a fussy eater that he gets chicken flavored baby food on his food 2x a day? Whatever it takes.
Im feeling a little mushy tonight, im not sure why.
