Happy Belated Birthday

Wyatt and Parks celebrated their two month birthdays on July 15th with copious amounts of breast milk, pulled an all-nighter with minimal sleep for all, played their white noise machine a little too loud, and some blood was spilled...on testing blood sugar. It was rockin'.

They got weighed this week. Wyatt is now 5 pounds, 12 ounces and Parks is 9 pounds, 2 ounces. They are both gaining roughly an ounce a day. Wyatt is eating about almost 3 ounces every feeding, which is outstanding for a baby his size. Parks is eating around 4 ounces. Unfortunately, often when their reflux acts us we ending up seeing a lot of this milk twice. We have also started adding rice to Parks's food to help with this, and, as an added benefit it should assist with weight gain. Maybe we should give Wyatt some as well.

It has been pretty tough around here recently. We are still trying to figure out their sleep behavior and get them into a reliable routine. They are starting to do a bit of a role reversal with Parks acting out during nap time and waking Wyatt up. We are trying a few new things to get Parks ready to sleep through the night in the nursery. This means kicking them out of our bedroom at night and the investment in a good video monitor. We are so fortunate to be able to afford (although barely) all the technology and the night nurse to give us the help we need.

I know you don't want to hear this for the 1000th time but it will get better. Pretty soon you will have two of the best sleepers in the whole world.

Love,
Amanda

Invest in all the help you can. You need as many breaks as you can get. Again...the night nurse is a wonderful idea. My thoughts and prayers are with you always.
