That darn tooth!

Benjamin had a terrible day yesterday. Aaron brought him to our bed for me to nurse. He nursed for FOREVER! I am down to two nursings a day and usually they only nurse for about 5 minutes or so. But Benji probably nursed for 15 minutes. And he felt really warm. We took his temperature … [Read more…]

Good Weekend

Aaron and I have this weird radar between the two of us–food/restaurant cravings! One of us will say (usually too late) “I feel like Texas Road House/Chinese/Subway etc” and the other one will say “Me too! Why didn’t you say something?” Well, after sleeping in on Saturday morning (the boys were gracious and didn’t make … [Read more…]

Little Monkey (and other news!)

Micah and Benjamin have been getting really talkative lately. The latest super cute thing that Micah has been doing is making animal sounds. We have this little stuffed monkey that he pulled off his mobile. I say “What does the monkey say?” and then I say “Oooo, ahh, ahh ahh!” (oh the things you do … [Read more…]

LONG week

Well, I survived my Bibliography and Research intensive. It was actually a really good class and I SO enjoyed being back with my fellow English majors, as weird as we might be. We were able to have some great discussions about literature, language, the duty of a Christian critic, and the qualities of “good” writing. … [Read more…]

It is so nice to be with my fellow English majors again. I have really enjoyed the discussion and literature. I really feel like I am back in my … [Read more…]

New Years Resolutions

I was really into resolutions when I was younger, making lists in journals or lavender flowered notebooks of how I was going to improve myself for the year. For the last two years, I have not written any resolutions. Two years ago, my only goal was to graduate from college. DONE. Last year, it was … [Read more…]

A Good Year

In these few moments where I am not being attacked by shrieking, climbing, slobbering children, I thought I would take time to reflect on the last 12 months. We have had an eventful year. Last year at this time, the boys were barely 3 months old and I was still trying to get the hand … [Read more…]

First Tooth!

Benjamin FINALLY cut his first tooth yesterday! I have been waiting for teeth to come in forever- or 8 months to be exact, ever since they were 6 months old. But month after month, there have been NO teeth. The boys are now 14 months old (15 months on Jan. 9th!) and we have our … [Read more…]

Welcome to our blog!

Ok, I am totally a blog stalker. I stalk tons of people’s blogs and am obsessive about checking them. Since I like other people’s blogs so much I thought, hey, it’s time to start my own.  So, WELCOME to the Meng Family blog! Otherwise known as BAM! BAM works on all levels for our family–Brittany … [Read more…]
