Good luck Tess!

I think Valentine might have an egg allergy. We gave her an egg for dinner last week and she woke up a few hours later vomiting everywhere. I really hope it was a fluke but I think we're avoiding eggs until we see her doctor. Ugh.

I’m sorry Mrs K. I’ll keep my fingers crossed it was a coincidence.

I hope everyoneís well!
I canít believe Iím almost 6 months into this pregnancy, this one has FLOWN by so far. I feel unbelievably tired and the size and weight of my bump is starting to prove quite a challenge with a baby whoís on the move. Layla is almost walking too, boy am I going to have my hands full!

We have chosen our girls names also:

Esmae Grace (Grace being after OHís grandmother)

& Alexia Florence (Florence is a family name)

Now for the next 3 and a bit months to get through!

Do we have any other
Ďs ?

Wow! I can't believe you're 6 months pregnant with twins right now!!

I was actually just saying that Chloe is almost the age Nora was when Chloe was born. I can't imagine adding another newborn into the mix right now! No lie - it's going to be insanity for a while. Buckle up, girl!

That said, now that we're on the other side of the infant age and starting to gain some independence, it's been absolutely worth it. I love that my girls are so close in age. It's going to be amazing as they grow together. The only thing I don't like is that, because of their birth dates, they're slated to be in the same grade. I really want to give them their own space for that. So as long as we feel like Nora is ready I think I'm going to try to petition the schools to let us put her in the year before. She misses the cut-off date by literally 4 days.

Beautiful names! Is Esmae pronounced Ez-may?

Wow, sounds like things are going great! I love the names! Three kids under one sounds terrifying, though

What's everyone up to? Valentine is a busy bee. She's not crawling but that doesn't stop her. She's such a fun little baby, she's always in a good mood. She's been mostly sleeping through and in her own bed again since early May, which has been great.

I can't imagine - two kinds under one was a trip! But time flies so quickly and before you know it you'll be in a routine. Life tends to move forward like that, haha.

Chicago! I'm kind of glad to hear that V isn't crawling yet. Chloe is so so close - but she hasn't quite figured it out. Just recently she did work out how to push backwards and scoot around, though. So I suppose she's technically mobile.. just can't move forward. haha. Anyway, 9.5 months old now so all the charts say she should be crawling now.. but as we've discussed before she and V are, gestationally speaking, the same age - so it's good to hear she's on track with other babies and not "behind".

(yes I know that babies develop at their own pace but it's hard not to compare sometimes!)

Anyway, the babies are doing great. Chloe is the happiest baby you ever did meet and I FINALLY caught a glimpse of a top tooth getting ready to poke through so that's exciting. Nora is 19 months now and is starting to turn into a full on toddler. re: I want milk. Can I have some milk, please. Cue huge meltdown when I offer her some milk. I mean, what was I thinking??

She's fun and sweet and thoughtful as well. Just toddlers, man; such big emotions! We're in the home stretch of her adoption though which is amazing. There's a possibility it could even be this month!

Layla will be 13 months when the twins arrive, but yes I have no doubt itíll be extremely hectic and iíd have probably gone insane by Christmas no all jokes aside. Iíve alwahs wanted a big family (4 children) and I donít mind them close together at all. I like the fact that playing together will be more fun if theyíre similar ages, things like being in the same schools, and obviously the whole re using baby clothes is handy too!

Everyone sounds like theyíre having a fun time. Yes sava itís pronounced ezmay. Apparently the spelling Esme can be pronounced the same way if you add ť to the end? So Esmť=Esmae.. however if I see Esmť I automatically think ez-mee so we went with Esmae to avoid confusion hopefully

I brain goes Esme = "Ez-me", too. I think the way you're spelling it will lead people to the pronunciation you're looking for.

Here's a fun game - Now that we all know our babies, what other names do you think could've fit them? Chloe's other front runner was Callie, and I'm SO glad we didn't go with Callie. Still love the name but it's not her. A name we considered but honestly didn't spend all too much time on was Hannah, and I think she definitely could've been a Hannah. It would be so much easier to name babies after you know them a bit!

I bet having them so close will be great when they're old enough to play together. I know Teddy wishes Val could do more with him.

I can't imagine a different name for Valentine. She's just always been Valentine, there were so other contenders. I think we made a good call on her middle name, though. She's not the delicate flower that Helena or Cecilia would fit, she's definitely more of a Ramona.
