I am sitting in the boys room rocking Dax to sleep. I can't help but feel that I've wasted so much time already. They are so big. Did I worry too much about getting them to sleep and miss out on the precious sleepy smiles I get when they are just about to doze off? Dax has given me 5 just in the few minutes I have sat here with him. I sat my sweet friends 18 month old yesterday while she had surgery. As I was rocking him I realized how full my arms were! I can't believe in not long my boys will be that big. They still have their infant cries, their barely giggles, their cute grunts and groans. They are just finding their hands and before I know it they will fill my arms. O I love them small, I need to enjoy it more!

The boys are 10 weeks old...wow time has flown. I have been posting a photo every day on my photo blog, but here are a few as of late. I am so in love with these boys. They are just starting to smile and coo at us consistently.
Barrett is definitely the hard baby as of late. He is touchy! When he needs a nap, it is a scream war til he falls asleep! I feel so bad. If I put him down while he is still happy and playing, he will just play himself to sleep. BUT IF I wait until he shows me he is tired with one little cry or rubbing his eyes, we are doomed! He will cry for 30 minutes straight, sometimes longer. Poor kiddo! He loves his carseat though, he is constantly happy or asleep when we are out and about. He is such a KICKER. He loves loves loves to kick. He usually only has 1 sock on, and is always working on getting the other one off. He is stingy with his smiles, but when he smiles, they are beyond adorable, as you can see in the pictures! He is getting a little better at eating...but it is a day to day thing. Right now I am still breastfeeding and then giving 2 bottles of expressed milk a day to make sure that he is getting enough. I tried to give him 1 ounce of formula the other day and he gagged and GAGGED! He wouldn't even swallow it. Better keep up my milk supply:) He eats his hands. Even when he isn't hungry he is trying to see how many fingers can fit in his little mouth, it's pretty cute.
