Welcome to Multiples and More!

Thank you for stopping by our blog, Multiples and More! Started in 2009 by Amanda Nethero and Lani Lyons, we thought that it was about time we got together, and form a network, of families of multiples, and our friends who support us. Blogging is great for so many reasons, but the aspect of support that we gain from reading about others lives, learning from their experiences, and sharing our own is immeasurable. This led us to think- why not expand the “circle”, if you will, and create a blog network where people can connect with others that they would otherwise have never met, find families that have had similar experiences, and learn from those who have had different ones. We’re talking relevant articles, product reviews, featured bloggers, and lots of giveaways! Just consider us your Virtual MoMs Club!

About Amanda:

Amanda Nethero is a 20 something  MoM of fraternal boy/girl twins that are 4 years old. She’s also the wife to an amazing Southern gentleman, Scott, who works in security.  Originally from Chicago, Amanda now lives outside of Orlando, FL, but sadly does not have the tan to prove it. Some of her favorite things to do with her family are check out the theme parks, go to the beach (with SPF 3000 at least), and cook. When she’s not running Multiples and More and all of the awesome opportunities that come with it, you can find her at Twice the Love…Half the Sleep, on Twitter (@amandanethero or @multiplesnmore) or on Facebook.  Feel free to contact Amanda with any questions, comments of concerns at multiplesandmoreblog@yahoo.com

    What a great story…I love hearing the story of how people met and how they ended up with multiples. Thanks for an amazing website. I do have a question though. I posted your button on my site the other day and I am still not listed on the right side column….What am i doing incorrectly. thanks

  2. Cool blog. I’m always looking for realistic twin strategies!

  3. I was so happy to find your site. My twins are older and sure wish i would have had these resources when they were babies. We have two sets of twins. (BG 14 years, BB 9 years)

    I just found your site on the ultimate blog party site. So happy to see a blog for Mommies of Multiples.
    My story is a little different, I am SAHM to BG 24 month old virtual twins adopted from Vietnam when they were 7 months old. I am Mommy to five kiddos in all and raising Twins has been my biggest challenge yet. I also have faced and still face challenges unique to raising adoptive twins.

    I am featuring a double stroller giveaway($250 value)that might interest some twins Mommies here. All I am asking for is a $10 donation for a chance to win the stroller. All proceeds are going to build a house for a needy family in Vietnam. Here is my blog: http://wwwjourneytoourdestiny.blogspot.com/2009/03/double-stroller-giveaway.html

  27. Conley Family says:

    so glad i found this site. I’m a SAHM to 9 month old twins!

  28. What a fantastic site. I am so happy to have found it. I moved away from Orlando last Aug. when I was 6 mo. pg. with my identical boys. I wish I was still there so I could join your twins group!

  29. The Gamble Triplets says:

    Thank you for the invite. My husband Steve & I are parents to 4 year old triplet boys.

  30. Les Jacobs says:

    I’m a stay-at-home dad of triplet boys, aged four. Glad to see there’s another site about multiples out there!

  31. Love the blog and found it thanks to “Meanest Mom”. I’m a SAHM of six; the first 4 came in a timely manner while still in my 20′s. The last two came in a package, (BG) when I was 43! Shocked; surprised; you name it, we felt it. The frats are now 3 1/2 and have more energy than I have time in a day. I also take care of our mentally handicapped daughter. She is 22 but has the mental abilities of a 2 year old. I’m busy but wouldn’t trade my life for anything! Thanks for putting this together!!

  32. The Wilcoxson's says:

    I just joined and that thought this was a great idea. I am mother of 5 ages 2 and under. I have a son who is 2.5 and set of triplets (spontaneous triplets with no drugs) who are 22 months and I have a final surprise of a girl who is 9 months.

  33. I just discovered you guys and love your site. I grabbed your button and am a follower. I have a five year old son and GGB triplets born in July 2008.

  34. The Myers Family says:

    I just love your blog ladies! I had written for how do you do it-in the past..but time just ran short for time, running around chasing my 28 month old twins and a 4.5 year old that is in Pre-k, 5 days a week. I think you gals are doing a great job..and now that life is slowing down i'm going to have to find more time to start reading blogs again! :)

    Jealous that you all live in FL..TX just doesn't have those beautiful blue beaches as does FL!

  61. i’m not technically a multiples mom, but i will have three under three as of oct… that’s got to count for something, right??? i’m in oviedo – do you ever do meet ups?

  62. chezperky says:

    This is such a great idea, I love it! I have seen the badge for your site a couple of times, but today was the first time I’ve had a chance to stop by and peruse the articles on your site – and I’m sorry I didn’t stop by sooner. I can’t imagine what could have kept me away before… couldn’t be the four kids, could it? Heh.

    I’m mom of 20 month old BGG triplets (and a 5 1/2 year old son). I’m so glad I found your site!

  67. Just fund the site today. In 2005 we were blessed with a son in January and twin girls in December. Our son is now 4 and the girls are 3. Each year in December, they are all the same age. It's quite fun. Most people think they are triplets.

    Hi!

    I've just started following this blog: it looks like a great site, & a great resource for parents of twins & multiples.

    I seem to be a very rare breed: a Dad of twins who blogs! I'm also older than your average new Dad. I live in the West Midlands of England.

    At the moment my wife & I are both at home full-time, but come March we plan to both work part-time & share the childcare. We have come to love our babies so much it'll be difficult for either of us to be parted from them.

    Our twins, a boy & a girl, were born in March 2010, 3 weeks prematurely by C-Section. It's been, & still is, tough. But I don't think either of us would change it for the world; they are the greatest gift we could ever ask for.

    I'm looking forward to sharing with other parents here.

    'JallieDaddy'

  76. I'm a new follower with two week old BG twins! Looking forward to sharing here ;)

  77. Johanna says:

    I’m a new follower, just found this site and already love it! I have 14 month old BBG triplets (one is in heaven). I love that this site includes twins and triplets. My babies will always be triplets but sometimes it’s easier to relate to “twin” situations. Thanks for the great info :)

  78. I have been a follower for some time now but just officially linked up. I have created a blog as well and would like to be added with your site.
    http://godjustonemore.blogspot.com/
    I love the atmosphere and all the input the mother of multiples give. I have g/g twins and a 6 yr old son. A big adjusment but our family has matured because of it! God has truly blessed us all when He gave us multiples!
    Wendy recently posted..Odd N Ends…My Profile

  79. Hi…i just found the site too. There are so many interesting things to read, i don’t know where to start. :-)

  80. I just found your site and I’m so excited to keep checking it out! It looks so fun! I have 9 month old identical twin girls :)
