A new look

I decided it was time to make-over the look of my blog since I still had our family of three in my header. A quick word about that picture:


When we went to Florida in June, Kelsey suggested we take some family pics. "Great idea," I thought. "We can use those for Christmas cards, unless of course we happen to get a baby between now and Christmas." Well of course, we took those pictures on June 12 I believe. The twins were born June 20. So now I have these awesome pictures that are already outdated. Oh well, I love them, and I still printed off a few and have them displayed, and the one of Tyler is adorable.

I also have been thinking about my blog title. When I started my blog (almost 2 years ago, wow time flies) I thought, who would want to read about my life, it's so boring. That's when I came up with the idea that although my life is ordinary, it is still mine and therefore unique. But now I feel like, while I'm not suddenly special, my life isn't quite so ordinary anymore. I'm an adoptive parent, and a MoM (moms of multiples), and my blog title just doesn't seem to fit quite the way it used to. But then again when all you do pretty much all day is feed babies, change diapers, and read blogs, I guess your life is rather boring, and who would really want to read about that?

I really do love your blog title, though. You are still ordinary in many ways (you do still take care of your kids, do the dishes, etc), but so unique in that you are an adoptive parent, MoM and YOU! Cute new family picture! Hope your stroller is working out great!
