Please excuse the blogging absence, we have had our hands full to say the least. Since coming home we are doing our very best to settle in and establish a routine for our family of four. We overcame the jet lag and a nasty stomach bug that knocked out Jack and Mark the first week we were home. Jack actually caught it again last week and then I caught something nasty that is still hanging on. (I did go to the Dr. today, on Day 8 of this crud and got some meds to try and force it to go away). I have been pretty tired and yucky feeling over the last week and am very thankful to some of my friends for stepping in to help out. Also, kudos to Mark who has often been a single parent at nighttime when I go to bed before the kids and pretty much all last weekend...I love you Mark - you're a great Dad!
All of a sudden having 2 little ones under the age of one leaves lots of logistical questions, such as: how do I carry them both, get to the car, go to the bathroom, put them both down for naps, etc. Many of these questions have already been answered and it is getting a bit easier every day. We have transitioned the two kiddos into the same room and it seems to be working. We figured Little Miss would have no problem with the noise sensitivity but Little Man seems to be doing alright too. They both amaze me at their ability to sleep through the others cries and screams.
They are both little cuties and we are getting adjusted just fine...now happy thoughts to my health.
