Learning to sleep!

Well, we know how to sleep, but we are learning how to sleep in the pack in play/crib. Mommy put us in here for our nap and we looked at each other, cooed and looked around. This seems pretty cool. Eye lids are getting heavy, drifting off.

Bye Bye,
Bekah and Billy(with mom's help)

7 weeks old

Bekah and Billy turned 7 weeks on Saturday. I can't believe how fast they change. The last two pictures were taken after baths on Sunday. They look so cute all wrapped up in their towels. Both are starting to smile more often, it just makes our day. I'll try to get more pictues up that really show how much they have changed. 

We are starting to get into a better routine. We eat, diaper, play then nap. This is repeated until bed time. We still never know if they are going to go 2, 2.5 or 3 hrs between feeds. For the past few days they were eating every 2 hrs durring the day. My guess is a growth suprt. At this moment they have gone 3 hrs since their last feed. I'm sure I'm going to hear them in a few moments. :) Nights are starting to get better, they are only up a few times a night. I hope and pray they continue to have good nights sleep like this when I return to work on Monday. 

We have been practicing with the bottle a lot so that they are ready when Meloney starts watching them. This is also nice in the evening because we give them a bottle before bed. This way Bill and I get to spend some one on one time with each of them. I fed Bekah last night, so I will feed Billy tonight. One of the hardest things for me right now is getting some one on one time with the kids. I feel like I'm running around taking care of their basic needs, and having a hard time fitting in the fun time. I'm working on it though.

6 weeks old

Time is flying by. I return to work Monday the 20th. Both kids went to the dr yesterday about their reflux. Their medicine was changed from Axid(3 times a day, treats acid) to Prevacid(1 time a day, prevents acid). We are in the transitioning time between medicine and it is pretty tough. Both have been pretty fussy. I can't blame them I would be too if I was dealing with the acid.

Bekah weighed in at 7lb 12oz and Billy at 9lb 6oz. Billy has moved up to the size one diapers and Bekah will follow shortly. Both are starting to transition into 0-3month clothes. The newborn pants still fit our skinny little babies though. To give you an idea, we go through about 20 diapers a day. That means we have used about 920 diapers so far if my math is correct. Yikes!

Since both babies have reflux, we have to keep them upright after feedings. We have been using their chairs to do this. They have also been sleeping in them because it keeps them upright while sleeping. As soon as the medicine really kicks in, we will be working on getting the kids back into their cribs. Please pray that this is a smooth transition.
