A day in the life of.....

The boys are already 6 weeks old. It's hard to believe, but time is flying by.
I am so thankful everyday that these boys are healthy. Ian, the chunk, was 7 lbs 12 oz, Travis was 6 lbs 12 oz, and Logan was 6 lbz 11 1/2 oz at their 1 month old visit almost two weeks ago. The pediatrician is extremely pleased that they are growing like weeds.

The boys are eating 28-32 oz of formula or breast milk a day EACH. So we are going through a can of powdered formula a day and at least 24 diapers a day!! Our day consists of feeding the boys every 3 hours, washing bottles, making formula, changing diapers, and doing laundry. Very little time goes to eating, and sleeping for us. We do have alot of help and that is the only thing that keeps us sane. We have Mike's mom spending the night M-TH to help with the late night feedings and I have a friend that spends the night on Sunday and she does the feedings all by herself in order to give Mike and I a full nights rest.

Lauren is still in love with her baby brothers. For some reason she doesn't like to feed them anymore. I've gotten her to change pee-pee diapers, but boy am I still working on her to change those poopie ones (not sure if I will ever get her to do those - heck she refuses to even touch them to throw them away). School starts in two weeks and I think she is going to have a hard time leaving these boys all day.

Guess what? It's time to feed the boys again.
