Another Day!

I am so going to miss having Dove home when he goes back to work next week. It's been so nice to have so much family time. Today we got the boys new shoes which are adorable, went to the guitar store for Daddy, played at the softplay at the mall and went to McDonald's for dinner. I know, bad mommy for feeding them that. They love it though and Wednesday's are family day so we go every once in awhile and enjoy it. They love it! I can't wait to see what fun we will have tomorrow!

Home


I can't believe time has slipped by so fast. A year ago today we were celebrating having spent our first night as family all at home, all together. God is so amazing and has blessed us more than we ever dreamed possible. Lex came home first on September 1, 2006 after we roomed in for a night with him at the hospital. He was in the hospital for 2 weeks and 4 days. Brody and Collin were supposed to stay for a few more days or a week. The next morning we got a call at 8am saying they could come home that afternoon. They came home September 2, 2006 after 2 weeks and 5 days in the hospital. They were born at 32 weeks gestation and come home at 34 weeks, 4 days and 34 weeks, 5 days. They would not start bottle feeds until they hit the 34 week mark(babies do not have the suck, swallow, breath reflex until then), so it was pretty amazing that they came home that quickly after. They start with one bottle feed a day and then add the others on slowly. Our boys were starving, ha ha!

Can we sleep tonight?

Poor Brody has been sick for the last few days. Running a low fever, not sleeping well and really cranky. He has gotten so many teeth lately and I can feel his one year molars so I thought that is what has been going on. Today he has been grabbing at his ear all day though and his fever was a little higher, so I will probably take him to the Dr in the morning if he is still not well. He has also not been able to sleep at night for the past couple of nights, which mean Mommy and Daddy have not been able to sleep either. Or for that matter, Lex, Collin and Indy as well. I gave him Motrin around 6 and he was asleep by 6:45, so we will see. If you get a chance say a little prayer that he is all healed up in no time and if it's teething, they break through painlessly. My poor little man! Nighty-night!
