Trying Times

I'm still alive and well - if pretty tired. Between Penny refusing to eat at 2 feedings a day late afternoon and bedtime (breastmilk, formula, breastfeeding, whatever - it is a struggle to get her to take 3 ounces) and Ned getting up at 2 am every night with gas, followed by 4 am feedings for both, it has been a long few days. Good thing the weekend is around the corner and Husband will be on call too. I've found that getting out of the house helps even if it means I'm more tired by the end of the day. For some reason the kids are better out at someone else's house rather than home with me. I stayed in the house on Wednesday and tried to nap when they did but one kid was always awake and fussing. I guess this is what they mean by double-trouble. Good thing they are so cute - as demonstrated below.

I have photos from my in-laws visit and other cute pics I'll post this weekend, along with a rundown as to how I'm surviving without Baby Nurse and with Husband at his new job. He has his first weekly overnight business trip next week! Eek!

Finally - check out this video. I have a totally "mommy freak out" about Ned.

LOL - you really do have "mommy freak out" totally understandable though :) He's going to be fine...babies are trying so hard to focus at this point that it happens a lot.

CUTE pictures :)

Thanks for the voicemail about the newest pics. It's difficult to check computers when you are o9n the golf course all day and then partying all night. It's a tough life but someone has to do it. Mom
