7 weeks old

You guys are now 7 weeks old, 2 weeks adjusted. This week has been a hard and exciting one. You both are more aware and awake than ever, looking around and listening to our voices. You both really like playtime and swinging. It's still been to cold to go for walks, but it's starting to warm up so hopefully we will get back to walking soon. Alexander has now rolled over two times from his tummy to his back, I know you will too soon Max, you just have a little more to move :-)

Unfortunatley with all that interests you in the world you no longer believe in sleep, especially you Xander. You have been staying up 10-16 hours per day (Not cool little boy) and most of those hours are at night. Max, you sleep at night and stay awake during the day.There are maybe four hours out of 24 that you sleep together. Those hours are not consecutive. Mommy is loosing her mind from lack of sleep and I think Daddy might be too. We've got to fix this little boys!

You're back to eating 6 times per day, about 125 mils per time. That's a lot! In fact, that's probably the amount you'll stay at for a while, hopefully just bigger amounts at longer intervals. You both have been spitting up a lot, but since you started taking medicine for it, it doesn't seem to bother you as much.

Happy 7 weeks little boys. Let's celebrate with some sleep please.

I hope you get the sleep you guys need. :-) I can't imagine adjusting to TWO inconsistent sleepers!
