Double The Fun

I'm Brianne and I am a local TV producer and videographer in York Region. My job enables me to share stories and experiences with my viewers. At the age of 32 I am now writing a new chapter of my own...I'm a first time expectant mommy of not only one but two bundles of joy! The journey hasn't been an easy one. It's included a devastating miscarriage, infertility fears, followed by the unexpected yet amazing news that my husband and I will be welcoming twins in the spring. I started writing my blogs as a way to share my experiences, the good and the bad, as well as a way to help other moms and dads out there that might be going through something similar.

Cold and Flu Season

Well it's that time of year again, time for the stuffy noses and coughs not to mention the fevers and aches. I should've expected it, especially with the twins starting preschool, but it actually caught me off guard. First came the earaches, then the stuffy noses, followed by coughing. It had been so long since the girls had been sick that I was left scrambling to remember what to do to help give them some relief. Did we have any...

You’re Still So Little

You wanted to talk when you were just a tiny baby. You would make noises that sounded like attempts at words before you were even one.

Big Changes in a Short Time

I hope that I'm not jinxing myself by writing this blog, but I honestly feel that we've entered an awesome age and stage with the girls. Don't get me wrong, all stages are awesome in their own rite, but some are definitely more 'trying' than others, and when caught in that moment, we often forget to appreciate it. It wasn't that long ago that I was writing a blog about how life with three year olds was one of the hardest stages we had gone...

I’m Proud of Breastfeeding

From the moment I found out I was pregnant I wanted to breastfeed my babies. That was the plan until my son was born with health issues and had to be formula fed. I was devastated but there was no other option. When my daughter came along I knew I was going to give it another go and she took to the breast like fish to water.
