8 weeks: sleepless nights and sweet smiles

You are 8 weeks old now. This past week has been another doozy trying to figure out your sleep. You usually have opposing times where you are awake through a nap and take turns screaming at night. We have started to let you cry it out for short 5 minute or less periods. I just don't know what else to do! I think part of the problem is how bad your reflux is, you both spit up tons and tons- that can't feel good on your bellies. We have been switching things around, trying to help. We've changed bottles, given you gripe water, let you nap on your bellies on a boppies (which you LOVE) and last night mixed formula with breast milk instead of water. Wonder of wonders, that worked, so at least at night, that's the plan.

Started cloth diapers today- your little butts look so cute in them! Lots of work for mommy though.

This week your Great Grandpa (daddy's grandpa) and cousins (Mommy's cousin and her daughter) are here to visit. It has been nice being able to visit with them. On Sunday we are having you dedicated at church and tons of family will be there. What special little boys you are to everyone!

Even though lack of sleep is hard, I cherish this time with you so much Xander and Max. You are both so amazing and I love watching you grow!

I can't wait to see the pictures from the dedication! :-) I love hearing about the joy you're receiving from being a mommy, even when there's tough things going on.
