Jake & Ben, 2 ½ months old
Just thought we’d give you a quick update. The boys are doing very well. Kevin and I are starting to figure out some sort of a routine. We are happy if we get four hours of sleep a night these days. I think your body learns to live without sleep for a while…thank goodness! However, it is more difficult to function on such little sleep. Kevin actually called me from work yesterday to tell me he went to work with two different shoes on…they weren’t even the same color! It was pretty funny!
Jake is about 9 ½ pounds and Ben is almost 6 pounds. Big Jake actually rolled over twice this weekend. It looked like it was sort of accidental but he did it twice in a row, on both sides. He hasn’t done it since but we were so excited! Ben is doing very well too. We have been taking him to the pediatrician for weekly check-ups just to make sure we don’t have a relapse with the breathing issues. So far, so good. They hope to take him off the diuretics by the time he hits 6 ½ pounds which should be next week some time. We think he will thrive even more once he is off these meds. The meds taste bad and he chokes them down and doesn’t really enjoy his feedings. He gets these meds twice a day.
There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t thank God for our boys. I still am in awe at every little thing they do. We love to watch them sleep, eat, burp…hell, we actually get a kick out of changing their diapers!! We actually spent last Friday night giving the boys their bath and couldn’t imagine a better way to spend our time. Parenthood is more then we ever imagined! Our most amazing accomplishment yet!!
