Potty Training

Okay, so you know when your son tells you he pooped in his diaper and exactly where he wants to lay for mommy to change it, don't you think it's time to get out of diapers??  He can even tell me if it's a "big poop" or "little poop"...disgusting!  I mean, seriously!  We tried a few weeks ago to potty train him but it just wasn't working out.  He would cling onto us and cry.  Even scream sometimes.  I told Jacy that potty training was a form of child abuse.  I hated it for the one day we tried.  If you have any suggestions or have been through this before, please help me out.  I'm very frustrated about it.

I think I can, I think I can

I can do this, right?!  WHAT a night we had last night.  Grady was up until about 1 or 2 crying and then once we got him settled down and asleep, Reese started.  Oh my, I officially know the definition of sleep deprivation...HELP!

A busy life...

Everyday I think to myself I need to update the blog, but when I have a free moment, I just want to close my eyes :o)  One day when we find our camera charger, I will be able to upload some recent pics I've taken.  Things have been going pretty smoothly.  I guess as smoothly as having newborn twins and a 2 1/2 year old..ha

Last week Landon fell down the stairs twice...not once, TWICE. I know, mom of the year is what your thinking!  And the sad thing is I was fairly close to him both times.  The first fall was pretty harsh.  He instantly got a huge knot between his eyes and the next few days after that had two black eyes.  The second fall was just a bloody nose thank goodness.  It scared the devil out of me!  :o)

Reese and Grady are doing good.  They both have a little congestion, but nothing out of the ordinary for this time of year I guess.  We visited the doctor yesterday and Reese is weighing 7lbs. 8oz. and Grady is 7lbs. 14oz.  They are gaining weight SO fast.  I'm ready to get them off of this high calorie formula.  During they day goes very smooth and they are always in great moods, but from about 5pm to 10pm is a little crazy.  This is Reese's "time to shine".  Grady is a little more fussy during this time, but Reese over does it!  Hopefully she will get through this phase pretty quickly.  They eat about every 3 hours during the day and then we try to feed them around 9:30, 10 at night.  If we stick to that, they wake up about 2:30, 3:00 and again at 6:30am.  It isn't that bad really.  I can function during the day, so that was my main concern.  I have it down to an art now feeding two at a time.

Well, speaking of Reese, she is gearing up again.  We love you!
