Time Does Fly

Today, well 58 minutes ago, my boys turned 5 months old! I can't freakin believe how fast that went by. Everyone warned me, but I didn't believe it. I thought for sure they would be 4 weeks old forever, surely they were never going to sleep through the night and no doubt post partum depression was something I was going to have to live with forever!

My how things have changed. Once I started getting some sleep and started Zoloft the depression went away...thank God....6 weeks of that felt like a lifetime! The boys also quit waking up every 3 hours...I was convinced it wouldn't happen. At about 3.5 months old they started sleeping 10 hours. Now they go to bed at 7 pm and wake up at 7 am.....HALLELUJAH!!

They have now eaten banana's, applesauce, pears, peaches and sweet potatoes...we will be trying out carrots tomorrow. Who knew we would be so excited about fruits and veggies. But MAN, it is so nice to mix things up now and not just feed a bottle. It's so cool to see their expressions when they try something new and open their mouths frantically, wanting more.

They laugh and smile which makes everyday so sweet. Don't get me wrong, I am not one to sugarcoat and paint a fake picture, they still scream and cry and make us crazy! It is especially nerve wracking between 5:00-6:30...then we starts baths, feed bottles and they go right to sleep in their cribs. But Damn! When they get going at the same time I want to drop them off at the local fire station, isn't it a no questions asked policy...JUST KIDDING!

So, here we are...5 months down the road and I love being a mommy! I can't wait to see all their accomplishments in the next 5 months!

Me with the boys when they were 5 DAYS old! I was leaving the hospital that day and they had to stay...I sobbed like a baby after that picture was taken.

I brought the boys to meet the miracle fertility Dr. They were a week shy of 5 MONTHS old!

Oh Amy... I can tell you dont feed those babies because Mr.Chubbs already has to unbutton his top button! :) I can't imagine having TWO at once! I may have three now, but NEVER had to do the newborn thing at the same time with mine. YOU are MY hero! :) And congrats on mommyhood... we all wonder about the "no questions asked policy" at one point or another... (mom's out there would be lying if they didn't agree... so don't lie!!) :) Congrats on the 5month milestone boys!
