A New Odyssey For The HEAB Family

by HEAB on January 19, 2012

My Food Pyramid for the past few months…

Not pictured: Numerous jars of olives & pickles, and several bags of Kettle chips.

In other words, we’re expecting again!

Oh, and I’d really like one of these…

because we’re having twins. πŸ™‚

P.S. When did McDonald’s stop serving 9-piece chicken McNuggets? Β Had to go for the 10, and those little nuggets never tasted so good!


Sarah January 20, 2012 at 9:20 pm

Wow. I haven’t checked up on you in a while. Congratulations! I’m 10 weeks myself.

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 9:22 pm

Congrats right back at ya Sarah. So exciting. Hope you’re feeling well! πŸ™‚

Gina January 20, 2012 at 9:11 pm

Heather, congrats! I don’t even know if I ever congratulated you on your first little one. I haven’t been on the blog scene for awhile (this is Gina from Vegan Strong). I had a baby a year ago and got a new blog started. Can’t wait to follow your pregnancy, congrats again!

jen January 20, 2012 at 9:04 pm

Oh my gosh!!!!!!!! Congrats!!!!

Ammera January 20, 2012 at 8:30 pm

Wow, congratulations Heather! Now the ice cream and chicken McNuggets make sense!

Abby January 20, 2012 at 7:40 pm

Oh my goodness! I know I don’t know you in real life, but I feel like this couldn’t happen to a more deserving person! You show just how much you love Summer and how grateful you were to have her. I am soo happy for you and CD!!! Congratulations!

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 8:10 pm

Thanks Abby. πŸ™‚

Kat @ Big Apple Little Kitchen January 20, 2012 at 7:39 pm

OMG!! I’m 14 weeks too! No official announcement on my blog that has seriously taken a back seat (morning sickness is no joke…) but it’s coming! Congrats again hot mama!

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 8:12 pm

Congrats, and believe me, I feel your pain. NOT a fan of the first trimester. NOT at all, but I’m over the worst, and I hope you are too. The end result is so very worth it…obviously, or I wouldn’t be doing this again. πŸ˜‰

Allie@LiveLaughEat January 20, 2012 at 7:32 pm

Oh my goodness, Heather!!! Congrats! TWINS eeeeeeek!

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 8:12 pm

Thanks Allie. πŸ™‚

ilovefetacheese January 20, 2012 at 6:57 pm


Annie@thisladybakes January 20, 2012 at 6:54 pm

Oh my gosh Heather! Congratulations! I’m probably more excited than I should be about this news since I don’t even know you, but I am so incredibly happy for you and CD and Summer πŸ™‚

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 8:12 pm

Haha, thanks Annie. That makes me happy. πŸ™‚

mona January 20, 2012 at 6:51 pm

oh my gooodness heather! congratulations!!! thats crazy in the best way possible!

Deirdre @ Oh Well Whatever January 20, 2012 at 6:44 pm

Congratulations! What a blessing. You will do great. So happy for you.

Lindsey January 20, 2012 at 6:43 pm

YAY! I’m a twin and it is the best!!!!!!! Lucky you!:)

Also, my parents say twins are surprisingly low-maintenance— with us they say we just entertained each other and went with whatever!

congrats !!!

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 8:13 pm

So good to hear, and I’ve heard only good things about having twins from parents of twins or people that are twins themselves. πŸ™‚

Susan January 20, 2012 at 6:26 pm

AAAHHHHH!!!! I’m speechless.

Okay, wait, I’ve regained my composure. First and foremost congrats to you and CD!! My best friend just had twins three days ago, with a two year old at home. Her and her husband were terrified when they first found out (okay, and still a little terrified with the two newborns and a toddler). But, the babies were born healthy and despite the apprehension she really couldn’t be happier with her family of five! Plus, my friend is barely 5’2″ and didn’t even have to go on bed rest. Hopefully you’ll make out okay with the few extra inches πŸ˜‰

Lots of love to you and your growing family! xoxoxo

P.S. I hope you don’t have an almond butter aversion this time around

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 8:16 pm

Hi Susan,
Thanks so much, and congrats to your best friend. So exciting! And yeah, we’re excited but there have been a few terrified moments when I think of the possible complications and then having two newborns. Your comment was very reassuring!

Lots of love to you as well – so sorry I haven’t been around much. Been so sick, and yeah, no almond butter for me these days, but I never did have a peanut butter aversion this time around. πŸ™‚

sarah January 20, 2012 at 5:59 pm

Congrats! Now you get to pin all those baby photo ideas and actually use them. Somehow I don’t think my 7 and 11 year olds feet would look cute curled up in my hands in the shape of a heart…
but twin newborns! Can’t wait to see what you have in store…
All the best!

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 8:16 pm

Yes, exactly! I’ve pinned a few on Pinterest that I’d love to recreate. πŸ™‚

Gina G January 20, 2012 at 5:34 pm

o my goodness, CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am so, so HAPPY for you and your family! πŸ™‚

Jessy (squeezetheday) January 20, 2012 at 5:26 pm


Michelle January 20, 2012 at 5:08 pm

Awwwwww, congratulations!!! This post brought a huge smile to my face πŸ™‚

Hilary January 20, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Congratulations! I love your blog and am so happy for you!

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 8:17 pm

Thanks Hilary. πŸ™‚

Candy @ Healthy In Candy Land January 20, 2012 at 4:59 pm

Holy moly! I was not expecting that at the end at all! Wow, congratulations! Can’t wait to follow along on your journey.

caroline lunger January 20, 2012 at 4:53 pm

hi heather! i cant believe you are expecting again with twins.. i just wanted to tell you that you have been my inspiration about blogging. i just started my new blog today at http://gutsyhealth.blogspot.com/

and i really hope that it turns out as good as yours. I love butter and meat too!

Carrie January 20, 2012 at 4:50 pm

Okay, even though it’s freezing and snowing here, I actually had to look at my calendar to see if it was April 1st. (It’s not.)


Rachel @ I'm Loving Today January 20, 2012 at 4:27 pm

Ahhhh!!! Heather, congratulations! That is SO exciting! You’re going to have the cutest little twins ever. So excited for you! πŸ™‚

steph January 20, 2012 at 4:13 pm

This is so exciting!! Congrats!! I’m a twin myself and lurve it! My dad is a twin and my mom has twin sisters! I would love to have twins of my own. Anyway congrats again πŸ™‚

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 8:18 pm

Wow! I see twins in your future. That is awesome! πŸ™‚

Melissa January 20, 2012 at 3:37 pm

Blessed Squared! πŸ˜€ Congrats!

holly January 20, 2012 at 2:48 pm


congratulations Heabs! so much love to you and the family!!

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 3:54 pm

Thanks Holly! Are you still running Country Music in April?

erin January 20, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Congrats! How very very exciting!! I just found you and I love you! πŸ™‚ I just made coconut butter this morning after reading your post about it from years ago. It is cooling on my counter as we speak. I used unsweetened flaked coconut from my local grocery store in my BlendTech. It only took a few minutes and it is not grainy. But I am SOOOO worried about it. I used the only coconut my grocery store had (whole foods is an hour away) and I just looked on the ingredients and it does have some sulfur or something like that in it as a preservative. So, it is terrible? What does that do to my kids bodies? Should I throw it away? AHHHH. It looks and smells so good.

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 3:56 pm

Thanks so much for reading, and no I wouldn’t worry too much about the preservatives, but maybe for you next batch, buy the coconut that is just coconut. You can always order it online. Amazon sells the Bob’s Red Mill brand – one of my favorites! Enjoy your butter. It’s so yummy on everything!

zoe (and the beatles) January 20, 2012 at 2:25 pm

ohmygod!! congratulations, heather and CD (and summer!)! what an exciting time. can’t wait to watch it all unfold for you πŸ™‚ beautiful way to start 2012!

Andrea of Care to Breed January 20, 2012 at 2:18 pm

Even if I hadn’t seen comments on your Facebook page, I would have immediately known you were expecting based on those food photos! Where are the Pop Tarts?!
Congrats to the HEAB Family!

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 3:57 pm

Haha, no Pop-Tarts this time around. They’ve been replaced by cheese and Kettle Chips. πŸ™‚

JessicaE January 20, 2012 at 2:18 pm

This was so fun for me to read because I am 14 weeks pregnant today with my first child πŸ™‚ Its going to be very fun following along an expert’s journey who is at the same spot as I am πŸ™‚

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 3:58 pm

Oh, that is so exciting to hear. Congrats to you, and how fun that we can be on this journey together. You have so so SO much to look forward to! πŸ™‚

Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday January 20, 2012 at 2:15 pm

That makes 3 little heablets then eh? What a handful! If anyone can handle it, it’s you.

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 4:00 pm

Yep, three…under the age of 2. Definitely a handful, but we’re up for the challenge!

Margie January 20, 2012 at 1:46 pm

!!!!!! So excited for you, Heather!! Best post ever!

natalie (the sweets life) January 20, 2012 at 1:45 pm

Casey @ Pocket Full of Sunshine January 20, 2012 at 12:57 pm

Oh my goodness—congratulations!!! How exciting. πŸ™‚ I have a twin sister, and I can tell you it’s such a special thing—your babies will be blessed with an incredible bond. And an already wonderful big sis and parents, of course!

Whoa, oh my goodness, so glad I clicked on your post this morning! What wonderful news – I am so happy for your family. Twins, oh my! Get ready for the experience of a lifetime, Mr. & Mrs. HEAB!

Diana January 20, 2012 at 11:39 am

Shut UP! Oh man, HEAB, congratulations to you, CD and Summer! You have gone forth and multiplied–I love it. Selfishly, I just can’t wait for more swoonworthy baby photos because Summer is such a perfect peanut. πŸ™‚ Now I get HEABbabies-CUBED!

Holly Smith January 20, 2012 at 11:29 am

Heather CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I’m not sure if you remember me but I’m the one that has all the parallels with you. We were married only a few days apart. I am a massage therapist and my daughter was born just a month after Summer. I recently found out that I am pregnant once again and I seriously wondered, “Wouldn’t it be funny if Heather was pregnant too?” We are pretty sure we are not having twins though. I am only about 6 or 7 weeks. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I am so excited for you and can’t wait to read about this new chapter! — Holly S.

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 2:09 pm

Ha, no way!!! So happy to be going through this journey with you yet again. We are soul sisters – I have no doubt! Hope you’re feeling okay. Take care, and I’m so happy for you!!!

Anne January 20, 2012 at 11:29 am

AHHHHH! Congrats Heather! I can still remember the day when you announced you were having Summer..I am so excited for youuu!
The minivan will definitely be needed πŸ˜‰

Kilee January 20, 2012 at 1:31 am

CONGRATULATIONS! That is so exciting! I want to hear all about if your family has a “twins gene” or if you were even expecting to become pregnant with twins. I’m so happy for you!

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 2:21 pm

Hi Kilee, nope no twins on either sides of our families. Ours will be the first! I was taking fertility meds, and I’m considered an “older mom”. Therefore, we knew multiples were a possibility. Still surprised though. πŸ™‚

Allison January 20, 2012 at 2:38 pm

That is so wonderful! Also, I admire your willingness to talk about problems with fertility / taking fertility meds . . . not that it’s anyone’s business if you keep that to yourself but I think a lot of people struggle with fertility and putting it out in the open detaches some of the stigma. If I see one more “older” Hollywood mom pop out twins and claim they weren’t using any sort of fertility treatment . . .

All that aside, how awesome for your family!!!!!

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 3:37 pm

Yeah, it’s not a secret – I just never blog about it, but I’m happy to answer anyone’s questions if it helps as I know how difficult it is when you think a baby is just never going to happen.

Kelli January 20, 2012 at 1:00 am

I am such a nerd, I started tearing up when I read this. I don’t even know you, but I am so excited for you! Congrats x 1,000!

Thanks Kelli. πŸ™‚

Mandy January 20, 2012 at 12:58 am

Will you find out what you’re having or are ya gonna be surprised? Oh, I can’t wait!

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 2:23 pm

Hi Mandy. Thanks so much. Yes, we will find out the genders at our next OB appt. in 5 weeks. Can’t wait myself! πŸ™‚

Kari Jenkins January 20, 2012 at 12:34 am

Mmmmm….Hot Mustard is the way to go! Congratulations, Heather! I’m very excited for you and your family. And don’t hesitate to ask for help.

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 2:29 pm

Hi Kim.
Haha, thought of you so many times these last few weeks. We kept the pregnancy hush hush as we wanted to make sure everything was A-okay with babies before sharing our news. No Pop-Tarts this time around, but I definitely think there is at least one girl in my belly as my food aversions/cravings/nausea are just like they were with Summer. The exact same. NOT A FAN OF THE FIRST TRIMESTER, but end result is so worth it.

Denise January 19, 2012 at 10:03 pm

congrats! Double Blessings!!!

Michelle in N. Cal January 19, 2012 at 10:01 pm

Oh my goodness! I came to your blog just to see pics of your daughter and how’s she grown and this was the post! CONGRATS!!! Sooooo incredibly exciting!!!!!

Marty January 19, 2012 at 9:58 pm

Heather, CD and Ms Summer! Oh, blessings, blessings on high! There are no words that express the joy in my heart, speechless at your glorious news! No wonder why you posted recently that you’d be blogging less and spending more time with your family! I can’t imagine the bundle of emotions you and CD are feeling, all good and life changing! Oh Summer will have two siblings to a big Sister to, what a gift!

The pyramid? Would love, love those ice cream sannies! And where is that big container of yellow mustard? You’re really going to be a busy bee in the kitchen now! I too love that brown paint color in the 14-week picture with that little Heablets Bump! I’m sure your families are so excited!

Whoohoo!!!!! Blessings times three! Xoxo

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 2:33 pm

Thanks so much. Haha, the mustard. I totally need that big container, but I’ve been buying smaller ones b/c some days I feeling regular mustard, other days, it’s Dijon, and I even went through the McDonalds drive-thru and ordered 10 of their hot mustards. They laughed and immediately knew I was pregnant. Oh, and I’ll eat an ice-cream sandwich in your honor. Dang, they’re good. Love you!
P.S. Paint color is Benjamin Moore’s Whitall Brown.

Nancy January 19, 2012 at 9:47 pm

Yeah! Congratulations!!!! That’s terrific news πŸ™‚

Nicole of Raspberry Stethoscope January 19, 2012 at 9:38 pm

OMG TWINS?! Congrats!!!!!!!!

danielle January 19, 2012 at 9:37 pm

OH MY GOSSSSSSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Congratulations x2!!!! Summer is going to be one busy big sister!

Rebecca @ All-American Vegetarian January 19, 2012 at 9:24 pm

I knew something was up as I was reading and seeing those photos…and then the chicken nuggets πŸ™‚ lol Cravings are such a crazy thing. I lived for American cheese, Wheat-thins, fruit smoothies for my girl and green olives and donuts for my boy.
Congratulations! Wonderful news to end my day. Much happiness and love to your family.

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Thank you, and I CANNOT GET ENOUGH OLIVES. Hmm, makes me wonder if there is a boy in there? Bought 2 more jars today! πŸ™‚

Rebecca January 20, 2012 at 2:51 pm

I would shovel the olives into my mouth… and it was those little salad ones with the pimentos. Not one in my mouth at a time, but several on a big tablespoon! OMG!
I’m thinking you might have one of each in there πŸ™‚ – a friend had a girl and all she wanted was oranges. Hmmm
Are you going to find out?

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 3:34 pm

Yeah, I’m feeling one of each as well. We find out in 5 weeks – can’t wait!

Amy January 19, 2012 at 9:24 pm

Congratulations to your adorable family! This just made my night. Is that weird? πŸ™‚

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Nope, I don’t think so. πŸ˜‰
Thank you!

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 2:35 pm

Not so much, but I’m definitely over the worst. Thank you! πŸ™‚

anonymous January 19, 2012 at 9:07 pm

Holy cow, twins!! Congratulations! I think you will need the minivan. My neighbor has 3 girls and had to get the minivan (Toyota) to fit 3 car seats.

We’re also expecting #2, but you’ll see I’m remaining anonymous on line until my amnio results are in (2 more weeks).

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 2:36 pm

Congrats anonymous!!! And yes, totally jumping on the minivan bandwagon. Never thought I’d be saying that, but yeah, I want one. πŸ™‚

Sylvia @ LifeIsGoodWithFood January 19, 2012 at 9:06 pm

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 2:37 pm

Meagan, thank you and yes, we are excited, especially Chris! I get a little nervous b/c I know three kids under that age of two is going to be hard at times, but we’re up for the challenge! We’re so happy. πŸ™‚

Lindsey Ferguson January 19, 2012 at 8:54 pm

I rarely comment, but…

OH, MY WORD! How terrible exciting! I don’t know why I am so excited, but I am. πŸ™‚

Thank you for sharing your parenting journey with us. You have demystified motherhood for me, and considering my husband wants children but I’m still unsure, that is a very good thing. πŸ™‚

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 2:38 pm

Lindsey, thank you for reading, and I’m so happy to hear my posts have spoken to you in such a way. Mamahood is hard and challenging, but it’s the most amazing thing ever. Wouldn’t trade it for anything.

Alisa January 19, 2012 at 8:51 pm

Julia January 19, 2012 at 8:45 pm

Congratulations!!!! Twins will be so much fun (but also so much work)!

Shannon January 19, 2012 at 8:45 pm

Congratulations, Heather. As a mom of 15-month-old twins, I want to tell you that any help that is offered you should take. You will be exhausted beyond what you ever imagined. Twins are a double blessing, but also double the work. Blessings on you.

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 2:43 pm

Yes, I hear the first few years are exhausting. Fortunately, we’re already lining up friends and family to help, and I’m taking them all up on it! That’s awesome you have twins too. So exciting. πŸ™‚

Oh my goodness. Congratulations a million times! I’ve read your blog for a while and it continues to bring a smile to my face every post.

Melissa January 19, 2012 at 8:18 pm

Heather if you need any advice at all… my twins are turning 8 tomorrow. Really from feeding to swings and slings my husband and i are a wealth of knowledge concerning twindom. Let me know, i’ve enjoyed your site for years and look at this as a way to give back. Oh yeah, it brought back some awesome memories of the first time we heard the doc say “there’s TWO” the two seemed to reverberate in our heads! Good luck!

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 2:45 pm

Oh, I’m so glad you commented as I was just researching slings. I would love to wear the babies as much as possible, especially when they are infants. Would love any recommendations. I’ll email you. THANK YOU!

What exciting news!!!!! (I literally gasped out loud…) I can’t wait to read about your experience. Twins run in my family (fraternal) & I’ve always wondered if I would have a single (I have a daughter too) and then twins. Thanks for sharing such happy news!!

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Yes, I knew you had a baby – I was reading your blog not too long ago. Sorry, my commenting is so sporadic when I read blogs. Your little one was five weeks old when I checked in – she’s beautiful, and you were looking great!

Debra January 19, 2012 at 6:44 pm

Oh my goodness! This is exciting news! I was wondering what was up with all those food combinations and then…TWINS! I’ll be eager to keep up with everything. Thanks for continuing to write what I consider the BEST blog out there!

Debra January 19, 2012 at 6:50 pm

I have an idea for how you can get a sizable down payment on that sweet ride. All your friends/fans contribute $15 towards the Heablet van. I’ll be the first to chip in.

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 3:00 pm

Haha, CD was all for this idea. πŸ˜‰
Thanks so much for reading and for your kind words.

Heather @ Bake, Run, Live January 19, 2012 at 6:40 pm

Now you are the perfect customer for my site, nannyintheclouds.com, cause I can hook you up with an extra set of hands when you guys decide to take a big family trip on a plane! Again, congratuations.

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 3:16 pm

Tell me about it. Chris and I were thinking of traveling with three after our trip to AZ a few weeks ago…I’m scared. πŸ˜‰ Oh, and I bought some mac and cheese today. Had a moment for you in the grocery store. Congrats – March will be here before you know it!

Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga January 19, 2012 at 5:43 pm

I pretty much knew it. I didn’t want to ask, but I just knew it.


Nothing like pickles, mini-vans and getting one out of diapers and starting again soon πŸ™‚ I hope you’re feeling well it’s gotta be so much trickier this time around b/c you have a little munchkin to take care of and the beat goes on no matter what! I remember that 1st trimester tiredness and hope you have more energy than I did!

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 3:22 pm

Yeah, I thought if anything the Funfetti cake would give me away. πŸ˜‰

And no, I do not enjoy the first trimester…at all! Was just as bad this time around as it was with Summer, but I’m feeling better.

Congratulations! I love the internet- and the fact that I don’t know you in real life, but I really am truly excited for you! Those little babies are sure lucky to get to come to your family.

PS- The odyssey is amazing. We upgraded when we were expecting our 3rd. How did I live before automatic doors? I have no idea. I would definitely recommend it.

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 3:23 pm

Thanks so much Marie, and YES, I totally covet the automatic doors when I see other moms clicking them open and shut in parking lots! πŸ˜‰

I just picked up my first ever block of KerryGold butter from TJ’s today since I was so fortunate to be near one (we moved out to the boonies last summer). I was wondering what your top recommendations for using it are? Favorite dishes? Thanks!

coco January 19, 2012 at 4:35 pm

WOW! It’s funny- right after you had Summer, my sister told us that she was expecting twins! I was so excited that I’d be able to put all my new pregnancy/baby knowledge I’d been learning from your blog to use! She now has two healthy baby boys and it looks as though things have come full circle here! πŸ™‚ Wishing your family all the best in this new adventure.

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 3:31 pm

That’s too funny. Now I can get twin advice from your sister via you. πŸ™‚

Haley January 19, 2012 at 3:36 pm

And TWINS?? Go girl!!

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Rachel January 19, 2012 at 3:28 pm

When I first saw the food pictures, my first thought was “What in the world is Heather up to”?! Good Humor bars and Chicken McNuggets are rarely things seen on HEAB! hehe but twins definitely explain it πŸ™‚ Congratulations to the whole family…I’m so happy for you!

Thanks Whitney. We’ve been thinking about you guys, and I’d love to come by and see the new house. Maybe once I start eating food after 4 PM again, we could do a pizza date!

Rebekah January 19, 2012 at 2:50 pm

Super congratulations! I see lots of oaties in your future – which by the way I made following your recipe to a T and they did not last long. Perfect! I also made some of your recipes that you made for Summer as we’re introducing food and they are wonderful! Thank you! Maybe I’ll see you at the turnip truck hot bar looking amazing.

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 3:39 pm

Rebekah, Oh, I’m so glad you’re enjoying the recipes, especially the oaties, and yes, please look for me at the Turnip Truck. Hope to be back there soon…as soon as I can eat vegetables again. For now, can’t handle them. I just want cheese. πŸ™‚

HEAB January 20, 2012 at 3:41 pm

CD jumped up and grabbed my hand – he was so excited when the ultrasound tech said, two babies, two heartbeats. I started crying – partly out of shock, partly out of happiness, and partly out of fear. πŸ˜‰

Melanie January 19, 2012 at 2:46 pm

Shut up!!!! Congratulations! I have been reading your blog since about a year before you got pregnant with Summer and it has been so fun to watch your life evolve. Yay! I’m so excited for you πŸ™‚
