If I missed something, let me know! I have a list of posts I’m going to do for more specifics.

What did you used to do for work before you had your sweet babies? Do you think you will go back once they are a little older?
I might have answered this in the part one of answers. I worked for the local Home Instead Senior Care office. I visited people in the community had spoke with seniors. My goal was to let everyone know about our services. I also met clients and their families. I really enjoyed the job. I’m really not sure on going back when they are older. That’s kind of play-it-by-ear 🙂

Our babies are about the same age so I can’t wait to read your answers!!
My question is how do you handle gender differences between the twins.. My son started carrying a bag calling it his purse because he’s heard me call my bag a purse… Does Knox ever do these things since he is so close with his sister? Knox has done this a few times as for the purse. I think he just wants something to carry his stuff in. I’m not sure how or if I should correct this?? I really am not sure how to correct, but I think maybe if you got just a backpack for him and told him boys carry backpacks and girls carry purses? It’s probably something he will grow out of! Another question is your MDO program through your church? Our MDO program is through church, but not our church. Our church has a very limited one with a waiting list. How long do the twins attend, until what age? Knox & Sloane started about 19 months old. They go twice a week from 9:30-2:30. They will probably go another year or two. Will you put them in a preschool or something like that when they are older? Depending on which school system we decide, but probably, yes.

What is your favorite color? This is tough! I like some shade of every color it seems! What would your last meal be? something with a LOT of gluten! Have you ever been to New Orleans? Yes, once. If so, what was your favorite thing? I love the food! If not, do you want to visit? I would like to visit again when I’m not pregnant 😉 The last time I went, I had just found out I was pregnant with Knox & Sloane and it was hard walking around so much! If you could pick any 3 items to take to a deserted island, what would they be? items and not people…. hmmmm. bible, computer and pillow.

I’d love to hear about your daily routine and see more of your cute home! I’m going to do separate posts on both of these 🙂 Also, favorite products:baby, fashion, grocery, etc! Goodness, maybe I’ll do a post on these, too!! For baby, we swear by Seventh Generation wipes. I think the squeeze pouches are great for on the-go or giving them a taste for fridge and veggies as they are learning. fashion….hmmmm, I do love clothes, but lately I’m more into clothes for the kiddos 🙂 Grocery – We like Pirates’s Booty, peaches and fish at the moment! It seems like I’m buying those three things most often this summer. Thanks for the fun q&a! Love your blog! Thank YOU! 🙂

I love to see more of your home as well. 🙂 I’m going to work on some posts for this! 🙂 Also, a blog question..what sort of things did you do to increase blogs views/interaction. 🙂 Hmmm, I started blogging a while ago, before kids and before really busy days! I had lots of time to read lots of blogs and comment on them. I think commenting started good connections. Then, when Twitter, Facebook, IG started mixing in, it became easier to “keep up” and have relationships with people. Honestly, I’m surprise more people don’t find me pretty boring. I will always continue to blog because I love it for journaling! Love your blog! Thank you! 🙂

I also have twins around your kids age (plus a 4yo) and was wondering what kind of car you drive? In the market for a new one and always looking for other people’s opinions!:) We have a Honda Pilot. I think it has great space and I like it a lot! Before it, I had an BMW X5, and I loved it, too. I drove a car for a long time, but I really do love being higher off the ground, if you will. Ideally, I think captain seats would be nice at some point!

I just found out I’m going to be a Nana!! I know that you use organic/earth-friendly when you can and I prefer that for my soon to be grandbaby. I was wondering what your favorite baby products such as wipes/diapers/blankets/jammies and all those other goodies were? CONGRATS! 🙂 For wipes, Seventh Generation work best for us. We’ve tried others, but these just seem all around better to us. As for wipes, we do Honest and Pampers. We don’t do “Baby Dry” Pampers, though. I’ve tried others and I feel like they don’t absorb as well and make a tinkle smell to strong. Jammies, I love Children’s Place and Leveret.

What would you say your worst habits are? I procrastinate and I stay up WAY too late. What was your occupation before being a sahm? I answered this in a question above 🙂 Do you think you will have more children anytime soon? We feel we will not be having anymore kiddos.
Jen August 13, 2013 at 9:03 PM
Just curious about your make-up 🙂 Always looks great! What are your go to lip colors? Thanks so much! I’m going to do a post on this soon 🙂

You have mentioned going on a sort of PCOS diet before. Can you give more information about that, please? I also have PCOS, but was only recently diagnosed with it before having my rainbow, but think I should look into it before TTC for another. As for PCOS diet, really not eating many carbs and sugar is most helpful. Those things help build the cysts. Try to eat as “clean” as possible. Also, when you are on birth control, the cysts are dormant, so often times doctors people people on it right before they are ready to TTC.

Husband occupation & house tour 🙂 I shared Brent’s occupation in part one and I’m working on the house tour 🙂

Where are the brown studded dining room chairs from? I honestly can’t remember. I got them at market about 8 years ago. Are the easy to care for with the children? Honestly, no. I should have just put covers under their little high chair seats and that would have helped!

Long time reader! I loved reading about your twin pregnancy and twins. Thanks! I found out I was having twins last year and I loved being able to use your blog as a resource!
My question: My b/g are 11 months old now and we have recently started noticing that when they fight, it gets pretty bad. They love each other and play well together for the most part, but when they fight it’s crazy! My son is kind of a go getter and he just runs his sister over or steals her toys. She has started fighting back by yelling and throwing fits. Do your kids do this? They do sometimes, but I try to break it up as quickly as possible. I will do the “hey, hey, hey….” and stop them.. just try to get them to calm down and say that we have to take turns and share. I’ve been telling people getting mine to say “okay” has helped a lot. So ask a question – “I want you to let brother play with this for a bit and then you can, okay?” It’s hard to imagine what they can understand, but it’s more than we realize and the more we talk in sentence and teach them things, they pick up. Do you have a dominate one? Sloane use to be, but now Knox won’t give in. She use to always grab whatever toy he had. Now, he will pull it away and run, haha. What do you do to help calm their nerves? I just feel like this type of behavior is so early and I don’t know how to properly help her. Divert their attention. Say, “oh, look I see your new book or your pretty doll”….their attention span really isn’t too large right now so if you can get it on something quickly, they will more than likely forget about it!

Do your littles watch tv or play with the iphone/ipad? They do watch TV. On our phone, they mostly take pictures and look at them. We are looking into a hand held device for learning programs Do you limit time and what are their favorites? As for time limit, I only have kids’ programs on throughout the day. I haven’t watched “daytime tv” in two years. Sometimes they will sit down and watch if they are wanting to rest or cuddle and sometimes they will go on about their playing and I will just turn it off. They love Disney Junior shows, Baby Einstein, Elmo, Winnie-the-Pooh and Barney. We just kind of rotate. Also, what do make for breakfast/lunch? Every morning they eat Van’s gluten free waffles with a little bit of jelly on them. For lunch, I try to do a protein, fruit and veggie. They like the Earth’s Best chicken nuggets, cheese, yogurt, granola bars, avocado, etc. Sloane likes pasta, Knox does not. Do you have picky eaters? Knox is more picky than Sloane, but he’s gotten better with age.
