Happy Adjusted Birthday!

Well today marks the one year adjusted age for the boys, due date Feb. 7, 2005. They are crawling, babbling incessantly, eating baby food, holding their own bottles, sitting up, laughing, smiling, playing... It is so hard to believe they have come so far from a year ago. My little boys are growing up so fast and I LOVE IT! Why you may ask? Because they are growing up of course! I mean these little preemies have overcome the odds in so many ways, it is such a blessing to be able to watch them everyday. Even with all the trials and issues we continue to face, I feel so very lucky for everyday I have my little boys in my life.

More good news- the nutritionist came by yesterday and said that Collin has gained a ton of weight since last month! Woo Hoo! All that calorie pushing seems to be working, thanks to Beech Nut baby food, extra calorie powder, and 30 calorie Pediasure. She even said that Collin measured longer than Cyrus! What a growth spurt, little man. Collin is now 19 lbs. 3 oz., 29 inches long; Cyrus is 21 lbs. 1 oz., 28 3/4 inches long.

The pipe dream about me sleeping through the night apparently was a temporary ordeal, because they are up two times a night now. Cyrus was up this morning at 7:30 AM! What was he thinking? And since I have been lazy, I have been feeding them and going right back to bed. I guess I should buckle down and try again .Craig keeps getting on my case about not sleeping, saying I should go to bed earlier. But in my mind, broken sleep is no better with an extra hour or two, even if I could get my night owl butt in bed before midnight. We shall see. If I can consider getting up at 10:00 AM sleeping in (and for those who do not know me so well, that was NOT sleeping in before the baby's were born), then maybe I can get the boys to sleep straight from 1:00 AM to 8:00 or 9:00 AM. Because we all know that is far more likely than me going to sleep before midnight.

And now for your viewing pleasure...

Baby Butts!! This adorable pic would have been SO much better if I could have
gotten my knee out of the way in time (they are fast little baby butts), but whatever. Its still pretty darn cute. Now you all can tell who is who right?

Here they are hamming it up to the Baby Paparazzi again in their playpen, which takes up much of our kitchen. Collin doesn't look taller then Cyrus...

Everyone does it, I took a picture of it. Cyrus with a mohawk. I meant to take a pic of Collin too, but Cyrus always grabs at Collin's hair when I do that. He distracted me from my shampoo photo opp. Next time. The boys are just about ready for another haircut... see Cyrus' hair is so long that it curls over, again.
