Eleven Weeks Old

I am super behind in posting this (in fact, I'm 7 whole days! eek)!

Aiden and Isabella are doing really well. They are still in newborn clothes, although Isabella could easily be in preemie's still (pants). She's just so petite. I so hope she gets her Daddy's metabolism.
 Aiden is eating big quantities each sitting (the other day he ate 9 ounces in one sitting!!!). Isabella is eating 4 ounces or less. Can't you tell from the photos?
I'm going to get real honest here and say that sleep is hard!!!! I think that is what is contributing to my sadness over Cole. It's rough to not get any sleep...or get it interupted every couple hours. Mr. Howard is my saviour because he generally is the one who gets up with them (don't I have the most amazing husband), but I still sit up and make sure they're okay or ask if I can get something for them (a bottle, tylenol...whatever they may need). I, also, am the one who gets up with Connor when he wakes up (and let me tell you, he's been waking up once/twice a night for the last few weeks). We are soooo tired!

We have a datenight tomorrow where we're actually going to leave all three behind for the first time (our last date night, we took Aiden and Isabella with us) and I seriously considered asking Mr. Howard if he wanted our date to be in bed - go drop the kids off, and then come home and cuddle and sleep in bed. Don't worry...he said, "no." So we're going to Dave & Busters instead!

I agree with him on the no bed thing for your date...but on Sunday since you are both off, you can totally bring them here for a few hours to get some sleep if you want. Will be home around 1. =)

OMG, I haven't visited your blog in FOREVER! They are so ADORABLE! I've been such a slacker lately with blogging & blog reading. I'm so happy for you!
