You have become quite the chatterbox this month. You love the mornings and after your 6:30 am bottle  you sit and "talk" and smile with me for a long while. You are taking 6 ounces of milk every 4 hours during the day, you take your last bottle at 10:30 at night, and then you sleep until about 5:30 in the morning most of the time. You are wearing size 2 diapers and are sort of in between sizes in clothes right now (0-3 months are becoming a bit snug and 3-6 month clothes are too long). You like to be held upright against my chest and sometimes when you are cranky the only way to calm you down is to walk laps around the house! You have been such a joy to your Daddy and me. You have changed from such a serious little guy into a happy, cooing, smiling baby.
Love you to the moon,
Your Mommy

You have also learned to smile and "talk" this past month. You will ooohh and gaaaa until you wear yourself out as long as someone is sitting in front of you and talking with you. You are not much of a morning person. You are the happiest/smiliest at about 8-9:00 at night. You are wearing size two diapers, take 6 ounces of milk every 4 hours, and are in between the 0-3 and 3-6 month size clothes. You sleep so well at night and most days we have to wake you up for your morning bottle. You and your brother are still sleeping in mommy and daddy's room and when we go to get you up in the morning you always have both arms over your head fast asleep! You like to sit up against the corner of the couch in the evenings and you looove to stare at the tv. I can't wait to see what you can do by the end of this month! 
Love you to the moon,
Your Mommy

To my Husband

Jason, You  go above and beyond in every area of your life. When we found out we were finally pregnant and you ordered 6 different pregnancy and parenting books from Amazon, I knew how seriously you would take your role as a dad. haha! To say you go above and beyond in loving and providing for our family would be an understatement. So Happy First Father's Day. The little ones and I are so lucky to have you.

Happy 3 Year Anniversary to Us

Today was a strange day. In one way it is a great day because three years ago today I made the best decision I ever made and married my bestest friend. Happy 3 year anniversary Jason! You make me feel like the most special girl in the world! I love you so much! 

And it was also a really rough day. I went back to work today. After being off since December it was finally time to suck it up and go back. And it SUCKED! But I can't complain too much. I am only returning to work part time (3 days a week). Jason works 4 ten hour days so he is able to keep the babies one day through the week, I will stay home with them two days through the work week, and we are very fortunate to have family to come and keep them the other two days in the work week. This makes it a little bit easier knowing they are being well cared for. But it still SUCKS. So if you saw me today and I looked a little on edge, this is why. I'll get over it eventually....maybe!
