13 weeks, the sun is coming out from behind the clouds
Little boys I love you. You are 13 weeks old today. It turns out that the 23 weeks mommy was on bedrest, the 23 nights she spent in the hospital, the traumatic events of her 29 hour labor and your birth, along with your following 9 days in the NICU left her quite unsettled. After some counseling, and a month on antidepressants she is feeling better though, and is finally able to really enjoy every moment with you. She loves loves loves enjoying you two, and doesn't like to share :-) You are both growing into such little personalities, talking and smiling and discovering the world. You love each other and daddy and I and we love you. You are doing quite well in your own room. Xander you rolled over again this week. Max, Last Sunday morning at 5 am we heard music coming from your room. You had scooted and turned yourself so that you could kick a musical toy mommy has hanging on your crib. It woke your brother up and you were rather proud of yourself. Mommy still cloth diapers you and it is still going well for us. Your hineys seem happy. We set up a bigger play place in the living room since your cribs take up your whole room now and you like it. You like when mommy rattles rattles and reads you books. You still love your swings and going for walks. You both love bath time and cry when it's over. You eat close to 6 ounces 5 times per day now. And you sleep from 11-6:30 consistently. Sometimes mommy and daddy talk you into going back to sleep until 8 with a pat and a pacifier. I love you my little boys, being your mommy is the best thing in the world. Happy 13 weeks my darlings!
