I cannot believe it has been so long since I wrote. I don't even know where the time has gone!! I have never been so tired in my life. The boys are doing really well. I can't believe how much they eat. Mason and Justin are up to 5 ounces every 4 hours and Noah is at 4 ounces every 4 hours. We try to keep them on the same schedule but that doesn't always happen. Mason is such an easy baby. Thank Goodness. He sleeps A LOT but is alert and content when he is awake. The zantac has done wonders for all of them and Mason has stopped throwing up for the most part. He has got to be well over 10 pounds at this point but I won't get him weighed until Tuesday. He is huge! I can't believe he is 3 times his birth weight. He looks a lot like Logan did as a baby so I wonder if they will end up looking like each other more than he does with the other 2. Justin and Noah are definitely more fussy. Seems the witching hour is from 5 to 10 at night. It is absolute chaos when Logan comes home and all the babies are awake. Justin gets really fussy around 8-10 at night. He cries and screeches and acts like he is starving. We always end up feeding him a little more even though he might have just eaten and then he seems fine so maybe he is gearing up to have a full belly before bed. He has red hair which is a McCoy trait and I think he looks a lot like my sister but no one else seems to think so. He has beautiful blue eyes (thanks to the Commacks) and an adorable dimple. His face is really filling out and he is about 9 and a half pounds. (I weighed him yesterday) . Noah is still a screecher. He is one of the loudest babies I have ever seen! He is over 8 pounds now but won't know his weight till Tuesday also. He still looks like a preemie but is really starting to fill out. He went to the urologist last week about the duplicate collecting system and he said he is perfectly fine and won't need any follow up unless he develops an unexplained fevers. Great news!! He has the biggest and brightest eyes and perfectly curled eyelashes. He gets fussy sometimes and has this loud screeching cry. It can be piercing especially when he is sleeping soundly and he all of a sudden yells out. He is also bothered by everything. If you switch positions while holding him he gets all annoyed. And he hates the hiccups.
But all in all they are wonderful babies and it is so awesome to have them.
Logan is doing well. He is having some issues sleeping that I am sure are related to all the chaos that has become our house. I feel so bad for him because I know how tired he is. He is such a great kid. He really is pretty good with the babies. He tries to give them fishies (the food) and I have to tell him they don't have teeth. He cheers his milk to their bottle and tells them to eat. He is adorable.
My parents went back to Florida this week and a friend of the family Leslie came ans has been with me all week. It has really been fun. She has raised 4 really great boys and I have learned a lot from talking and watching her. We have had a really good week and I will miss her when she goes back to Florida. My parents are back tomorrow and I can't wait for them to see how much the babies have grown. My sister as always has been a huge help and comes over in the evenings to help out. She cooked us dinner twice! What a huge help that is since I never feel like cooking! I have hired a very nice 14 year old girl to help out after school when Logan gets home and Bob and I decided we needed more night help so we got a night nanny with experience with multiples to come 3 nights a week. I know the sleep will make me a better mom.
All in all I feel so blessed to have all 5 of my boys. Bob is a really great father and he is so good with the babies. I know he is exhausted at work and I feel so bad for him so I am glad that with this help he will be able to sleep. Last weekend was the worst. By 6:30 on Sunday morning when Logan got up Bob and I could not keep our eyes open. I just thought there is no way I can begin my day right now. I had to call my sister and Mom to come over so we could sleep for 2 hours. When Logan is home all day it is just impossible to nap. Plus I don't want to. I miss him and want to hang out and play with him. So I am hopeful that all of this will make things a little less chaotic.
That's all for now. I am posting a picture of the boys taken this past week. Thank you all for your support!!!!
