Busy Busy

Sorry it has been so long since our last post, but lets just say I have had my hands full. The girls will be 8 weeks on Saturday, and they are growing like crazy. I took Lucy to the doctors office this last Monday and she weighed in at 10lbs8oz:) So she is growing like crazy. Madeline is a bit smaller and you can definately tell when holding them, my guess would be that Madeline is about 8lbs2oz. They have their 2 month check next Friday, so I will post their weights after the appt.

Lucy has been spitting up a lot and have some tummy problems so the Doctor switched her to a hypoallergenic formula which is pretty expensive...I think Ethan figured it out to be about $3 a bottle, and we are going to start her on some acid reflux medication , so hopefully that will start to help.

Nighttime is still very interesting at our home. Ethan takes one baby and sleeps in one room while I take another and sleep in another, we found that this is the best way for us to both get some sleep since they wake up at different times crying. I think we are just getting used to having about 5 hours of sleep added up for the night:)

Family has been so great in helping us out during the day, and we are so grateful. It is really hard now because the girls are both pretty fussy and always want to be held, and when I am here by myself it is hard to keep them both happy at the same time. So THANK YOU SO MUCH BONNIE, MOM, ERIN, AUNT JULIE, LOU LOU, and everyone else who has been helping out.

Till next time.......

Can't wait to here about the check up! They look so big! Do you remember how much Jack used to fuss and spit up? As soon as we put him on the acid reflux medication (it takes a few days to work) it was 100 times better. I hope if works for Lucy.

We have thought about you guys a lot lately. We are hoping to bring you dinner (and join you for it!) sometime soon. I have been sick, so once I am all better and you guys need a meal we will get it figured out!
