From Top to Bottom(Declan,Colin, Finn)
These are a little close up but they are the best I have for right now. It is so hard to get all 3 babies to cooperate for a picture. They are really beginning to change and they are really filling out.
Today I am beginning the scheduling of these little guys. They got up at 7am this morning and I brought them all downstairs. I fed them....well the kids fed them, while watching cartoons and before jumping on the school bus. I gave the babies all baths and then at 9:30am they were getting tired so I topped them off with a bottle and put them back up in their room for a long (crossed my fingers) nap. Colin went right to sleep and Declan followed. Finn was wide eyed for quite awhile. They all slept soundly until 11:45 when Colin woke up. Finn woke up at 12:30 and then Declan got up at 1:15. I brought them all downstairs and fed them again.
I was smart to utilize my time during the nap today. I got a shower in for me, took out the garbage, filled the dishwasher, made bottles, did a load of laundry, put away 2 loads of laundry, returned several phone calls, checked my email, cleaned up the kitchen and hummmmm I think that is all. Mairin arrived home from pre-school at noon and is currently downstairs having "quiet time". The 3 boys are laying on the floor in front of me looking around and all is good.
My twins really did a number on me. They were sleeping thru the night (8 hours) by 8 weeks old and I guess that was pure luck because at the rate I am going with the trips we are going to be up at night for awhile. We are stuck at 4 to 5 hours no matter what time I put them to bed and no matter how much formula I try to fill them with. I hope that since they were born smalled that some of this has to do with their size. I am on a mission though to get these guys quiet all night long.
