What We've Been Up To

Posted by Picasa
Wow! I can't believe the boys will be 5 months old next week. This last month (and previous 3) have flown by so quickly. What have we been up to?

1 doctor visit for Evan's lumpy head (apparently it is normal tectonic plate movement)

1 doctor visit for 4 month well baby check up - seriously considering not doing all 3 shots at once for 6 month well baby

2 rounds of RSV shots in Everett - learned that the car must be constantly moving which also involves rocking the car at red lights

1 trip to store to purchase new jammies because the boys grew so fast

Several trips to the store to purchase formula - they go through more than 1 can of formula a day now

2 trips to the store for all new 8oz bottles after struggling to feed Drew for a week - problem resolved!

Fought off pink eye from Grandpa - this was hard because Grandpa is the baby whisperer!

I got my first cold - that was an awful week!!

Now the boys have colds with little coughs - ugh!!

Grandma and Grandpa are sick...again. Poor grandma and grandpa!!

Broken washing machine - this required shopping, excessive consumer report reading, and cleaning the garage full of baby stuff for delivery guys (poor Casey)

Sleep - not a lot

The boys and I are eagerly anticipating the arrival of a new double stroller that will change our lives! Other than the usual trips to the doctors office the boys have had only one trip for pictures and to Costco and Evan got to visit with Great Grandma and Great Grandpa. Once we have the new stroller I think we might be ready to go on more outings. It will still be tough to get out and back before the little guys need their next bottle though:)

It has been such a busy, tiring, chaotic, stressful, and wonderful time for our new family so far and we really appreciate all of our friends and family for visiting and checking in on us and being patient with our tight schedule centered around feedings! We might not be able to get out much but always welcome visitors and enjoy the variety to our day:)

I just packed up a lot of 6-9 month clothes. Could you use them? I would love to bring them over and meet the boys.
