8:14: Teething Troubles - We are doing well however, we have had some very rough days and nights as everybody seems irritable due to teething! Austin does have a tooth! Poor Baby cries alot especially at night. We are using teething tables, baby orajel,Tylenol and Motrin. (not all at the same time!) I feel so badly sometimes! Matthew is drooling and drooling but no teeth yet. So is Emily. We try very, very hard to adhere to a strong rouotine every day so that our nights might get better but unfortunately, they have not! We sleep very little and rock very much!
Crawling - Emily is crawling. Really crawling! The boys still do a bit of a leap and a lunge action! They do move quickly even without fully crawling!!
Standing - Emily and Austin are both climbing the play area walls! It is scary! Sometimes they stand up and can't sit back down!! So, we have lots of yelling!! Mom has to step in and rescue them!
Eating - We love baby oatmeal cereal and have it for breakfast every morning!! We also eat carrots, squash, green beans, peas and sweet potatoes. The fruits have been iffy because we thought that maybe Matthew was allergic to apples. However, after cutting apples out of his diet, he is still breaking out but until we confirm what he is allergic to, we don't want to feed apples. We do eat prunes, pears, bananas and peaches. We are not eating meats yet. Oh, and I am making all our veggie baby food. Have not attempted fruit yet although I have tried mashing bananas and they hated it! I invested in a food processor and it is actually really rewarding to make my own baby food. So far, they love everything I have made! Yes, I know, I simply don't have enough to do so I added one more thing on my plate! hehehe
Mom and Dad - We are still surviving parenthood! It is not easy and we have some very rough moments with very little sleep. We always look at each other and say what a blessing our family is! When I do cry it is simply because I look at my babies and realize that the Good Lord has really blessed us! At times I am still in disbelief that we are so lucky to have our beautiful babies in our life! I am also blessed to be in this with Rob because he is such a pillar of strength and boundless energy. When I am completely exhausted, he knows and sends me off for a quick nap and closes the door behind me.
