Baby Updates

Evan and Drew recently had their 2 month vaccinations and check-up. They are big boys now weighing in at over 9 1/2 lbs each! They did not like getting the shots in their legs. Evan cried hard enough to almost make me start crying and Drew screamed like mommy - mouth wide open with nothing coming out...until he caught his breath and then really let it go!

Isaac is still at the NICU in Everett and being transferred to Children's today if all goes as planned for surgery on Monday. Since he is older now he requires a lot more stimulation so the nurses have had their hands full trying to keep him entertained. He gets to swing, listen to music, have a mobile on his bed, and sit in the vibrating chair in his doorway to watch the nurses work (and hopefully get tired). Hopefully he will recover quickly from his surgery and get to come home on Christmas. If not, Santa will have to make another trip out to the Lake.

Brewster is surprisingly a good big brother. He is only jealous of the babies pacifiers and will take off with any left sitting around. He likes to kiss the babies on their heads and often has to be told to stop as he tries to give them a bath. He does not like the unpredictable arm flailing and is confused as to whether or not they are trying to play with him. I do think that Brewster tries to establish his dominance by eating his treats in front of them though. He has no idea how bad things will get for him once these little guys are mobile:)

Some things that I have learned recently as a new parent...

Finger nails are good for getting baby boogies
Finger nails are bad when changing dirty diapers
Baby farts are funny
It is not funny when a baby can't fart
I should always have my hair pulled back when burping a baby over my shoulder
Babies can burp like grown men
I should never wear anything nice
It is so sweet when babies start to grab and hang on to you
It is not sweet when babies pull your hair
Babies know exactly when you get comfortable in bed
Babies hide cheese in their fat rolls
Babies like to pee when changing their diapers with no lights on
and many other things I can't think of due to lack of sleep...
