Nine Weeks Old

This week seems to be the quickest week of all. I think part of that is that we had an 8 week photo, a two month week photo, and then went right into the ninth week.
 They are both still in newborn clothes (which still swim on them). They are still drinking a combination of breastmilk and formula, although we switched Aiden onto a lower calorie formula some time last week (she's still on the preemie 22 calorie formula). They love the swing and LOVE being held (which is very difficult to do when all three of them want that). Their favorite thing ever is being swaddled though.
We still get asked on a daily basis whether or not they're twins. Ha! Often times though after someone asks, they'll say, "Oh that was a stupid question!"

They sleep a lot still; I'm thinking it could have something to do with the fact that they were preemies. They do, however, often wake up once or twice at night for an hour or so. It's soo much less than Connor woke up, but we're also a lot more tired than we were when we just had Connor. So, we're both feeling pretty tired when that alarm goes off at 4 or 5 in the morning. One night when I was feeling exceptionally irritated that the babies were fussing in the middle of the night, I actually said out loud, "I am soo lucky to have these two babies who won't go to sleep. I prayed and prayed for this." It helps put things into perspective. If, for no other reason, Cole has so taught me to be grateful. I am lucky to be getting very little sleep. Babies are not an inconvenience, they are a blessing! And boy am I blessed with a full heart!
