1st Father's Day


The boys are growing like weeds (trust me I know this because we have had a LOT of weeds in the flowerbeds :) The are both over 8.5lbs as of their visit to the doctor on Monday. The are doing great. We are still working on more than 4 to 4 1/2 hours from feeding to feeding at night. Corey and I think Colt is ready to go around 5-7hrs, but Cage wakes up at no later than 4 every time. It's a process. I don't know if it's because Colt is sleeping so good at night, but he has decided to stop sleeping all together during his naps. I try to feed them every 3 to 3 1/2 hours during the day. They then get wake time and go down for 1 1/2 to 2 hours of nap time before they get fed again. He will lay there for about 20-30min wide awake and then start crying and not stop. I am praying it is just a phase. Cage sleeps right through it :)
A little update on me...Things went crazy with me physically, as most of you know, after I had the boys. I developed preeclampsia post pardom. My blood preasure was 187/119...NOT fun. Then my incision opened on the left side and drained...YUCK! Last but not least I have a very large hematoma that covers the area from below my belly button to the top of my incision and is as wide as my hand. It is keeping me from getting my waist back and from what the doctor tells me it will be a good while before I'll be back to normal :( It's a process and I understand that and would go through it all again and more for the two beautiful babies I have...even if one has been screaming for almost an hour as I'm typing this :)
