Feedings, Feedings, and More Feedings!

The shifts have officially started. We still only have three home. Landon is doing great. He had surgery on Memorial Day for an umbilical hernia. They never had seen one that big. I am glad they fixed it. I will post some pictures of it later. Jenna was doing great and ready to come home on Memorial Day, but she started having high blood pressure. They are running some tests to see if they can find anything going on. Hopefully she will get over this hurdle so she can come home. Landon is almost off of all oxygen. Once he does that he can come home. I am ready for them to be home because they don't know who their mommy or daddy is. I haven't been able to post anything new because I washed my SD card to my camera and couldn't take any new pictures. I will have to get down to the hospital and take some new pictures of Jenna and Landon. This morning I called and checked on them. Landon weighed 6lbs. 12oz. Jenna was 5lbs. 8oz. Yesterday at the doc. office Peyton weighed 6lbs. 4oz. A week ago Sydney was 6lbs. and Ethan was 7lbs. They are getting so big! The pictures to the right are of my night shift crew for Tuesday nights. They did great! Thanks to everyone for helping me out. I couldn't do it without you!!!

The Amazing Trio!

We finally got Sydney home on Wednesday. I was so ready to get a girl home. She already has her daddy wrapped around her little finger. It is so neat to see the difference between the boys and her. She doesn't cry ever. We can change her diaper, clothes, or even give her a bath and she just lays there. Last night when we put her in bed rob said, "She's so cut I just want to gobble her up." He is such a good daddy. We put all three together for some pictures and the two boys hated it. Sydney just sat there. She is so funny. The first two nights were TERRIBLE!!! Ethan and Peyton regressed back to whining at night. We had them somewhat trained before she came home. Her first night here we had to try to get her on the boys schedule. Finally, last night we got them settled and in bed around 11:00. They slept till about 4:00am and we fed them then they slept till 8:00am. That was the best they had done since before Sydney was home. I didn't think that three would be that different from two, but I was wrong. It has become the hardest thing I have ever done. They seem to be falling into place and smoothing out. They did great last night and hopefully they will continue down that path. They are just so cute! I always thought people were weird who took millions of pictures of their kids, but we have so many pictures that look exactly alike because we just take one right after another. They are very good babies. During the day they just sleep, eat, and poop. They don't cry or whine at all. Ethan has terrible smelling gas. The others are gassy like him, but you don't smell it. He clears a room. We walk into the nursery at night and it about knocks us over. He is already on a special formula to help that, but I'm not seeing a change yet. At least he doesn't fuss with the gas.

Double Trouble!!

Ethan and Peyton are both doing great! They eat and sleep and poop. They are great babies. Ethan is a little more high maintenance than Peyton, but we are very blessed. I took a picture of them the other day in the recliner and didn't know they were smiling until I looked back at the picture. Isn't it good!! I can't wait for them to look at me and genuinely smile at me. That will be so neat!

Finally they're home!

Well, I'm sure all of you know that Peyton is home. He cam home on Saturday, April 29. He didn't sleep very well the first few days. We have him in his room with a light on and an alarm clock and a noice maker thing. He didn't start doing better until his big brother Ethan came home. On Tuesday, May 1, Ethan came home to meet his brother. They are best friends. Peyton sleeps great at night now. They did so good until last night. Ethan isn't adapting to the bottles we use very well. I think we may have to get some from walmart that are similar to the NICU ones. Other than the feedings they are doing great. Sydney will be coming home tomorrow, May 8. I hope she does well. I am really excited about getting a girl home. It has been a little busy here so I didn't have time to update the blog last week. I will try to update at least once a week. We took a lot of pictures of Ethan and Peyton together. They are so cute together. I will get a picture of Ethan, Peyton, and Sydney on here soon.
