6 weeks :)

The loves of my life are 6 weeks old today! Where has the time gone??

I will celebrate by cleaning my house. They will celebrate by hopefully staying happy, sleeping on their schedule, and not being gassy. Or needy. Yesterday they were quite needy...

They are usually pretty self-sufficient. When they wake up I change them, feed them, play a little, cuddle a little, then I can put them both down in their crib, bouncer, or swing and they will entertain themselves until they fall asleep. But yesterday they both wanted to be held all day. Which was ok with me, I love holding my babies :) But nit was weird to see them like that - they were so insecure... This morning Dylan was all out of sorts for a while. He ate, got changed, got cuddled, ate again, snuggled again, and he was still unhappy. So we went out to the living room and sat in the rocker. Within 5 minutes he was sound asleep... so he wanted some movement, I will have to remember that. I also had put on their Heartbeat Lullabies CD which always gets them calm, but I had to do it in the living room since Josh was still sleeping...

Sleep is still the same with both of them. Riley can sleep through the night, but Dylan still wakes up usually once or twice a night. And he rarely wakes up happy, it's always 0-60 with him. Sometimes he does hang out until I notice him awake, but that's usually in his pack-n-play in the living room and he gets to stare at the ceiling fan. We have 16ft ceilings in our living room, he's always looking at that fan way up there, which amazes me :) Riley will usually wake up pretty happy. She almost ALWAYS smiles a little at me when I get her. She's such a pretty little girl!

And I think she's going blonde! Her roots are coming in all light. I have dark red hair, Josh is blonde, so I am wondering which way she will end up. I can't really tell if her roots have any red in them yet.... Dylan's hair is light auburn red :) Go team ginger!

My SIL and her family are coming for the weekend :) I will be so happy to have some adult conversation! And we plan on getting out of the house for a couple of hours, leaving Josh with the kids. I keep telling myself I won't be one of those moms who calls constantly to check on them, but who am I kidding?

I will take pictures this weekend - Promise!! Sorry I've been slacking - I do take a lot of pics, they are on my phone....

Glad you're getting into a routine and figuring out what your kiddos like...its been taking me a while to figure it out...but I think I'm finally getting it and it definitely makes things move much smoother!!
