Sleepless Nights and Staring Contests


Never did I think that I could love someone as much as I love my Wife. These girls have captured our hearts and it's an amazing feeling to be a parent. Sure it's not easy, but when I'm feeding one of them or rocking them both back to sleep, I don't want to be anywhere else. I may moan and groan because I'm being woken up, but once I'm with them I seem to forget where I was a second ago.

Mom and the girls are doing awesome. They had a Pediatrician appointment Monday and Addison is up to 6lbs 14oz and Aubrey is up to 6lbs 2oz. The last few days I think Aubrey has grown a lot more, I think she may be tired of being the "little sister". She has been eating a lot better and has seemed to have filled out a little more. Now Addison on the other hand is a little oinker. She LOVES to eat. She has yet to meet a bottle she doesn't like.

Our lives have certainly changed, our schedules are different and our energy is a little less, but like I said, being a parent is amazing. I just wanted to post a little something to make myself feel better for having neglected the blog for the past week or two. We hope that everyone is doing well and as always we thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers.

All of our love.
