Where has the time gone?

Geez...where do I even start. Since my last blog things have been happening so fast! I have been back at school now for 2 1/2 weeks and miss Paityn and Conner during the day like CRAZY! I love teaching but could definitely be a stay at home mommy :) Matt and I are adjusting to the new schedule with having to get up earlier, get ready, get the babies ready, and be out of the house in order to make it to work on time. So far, so good LOL I thought the days when I was home went fast but now it seems 10 times faster. The babies will be 12 weeks tomorrow and are growing like weeds. Several people have been asking about Paityn and Conner so I wanted to give an update.

Paityn, as of last week, weighs 12 lbs 6 oz and loves to eat! I think she would eat constantly if we kept feeding her LOL Also, almost 3 weeks ago she started rolling over from her tummy to her back and has begun to make a few coo sounds. On Monday she slept through the night from 9 pm until we woke her up at 7 am :) I had to go in there a few times and check on her but she was sound asleep! She also lets you know when she wants something and will not stop screaming until she gets it. Matt always says she is going to be our little trouble maker when she is older LOL

Conner, as of last week, weighs 12 lls 1 oz and is such a calm, laid back, and happy baby. He was placed on a reflux medicine about 3 weeks ago and it so far has made a tremendous difference. He has been making some coo sounds and now has started laughing ocassionally and sometimes smiles responsively :) He has not slept though the night yet but normally only gets up around 2:30 am or so which isn't bad. Matt says Conner is going to be a momma's boy LOL

Ears Pierced!

After the babies 2 month check up we took Paityn to get her ears pierced. I had my ears pierced as a baby and most people I talked to said to get them done as a baby. She did very well and did not cry nearly as much as I thought she would. She cried when she heard the first click and when she was finished I gave her a pacifier and she quit crying right away :) She looks so cute with her diamond studs!!

2 Month Check Up

On Thursday we went to see Dr. Meyer for Paityn and Conner's 2 month check up. Everything went very well and she said the babies are growing great for being premature. Paityn weighs 11 pounds 9 ounces and is 21 3/4 inches long. Her corrected percentiles are: 95% for weight, 95% for length, and 90% for her head circumference. Conner weighs 11 pounds 1 ounce and is 21 1/2 inches long. His corrected percentiles are: 95% for weight, 75 % for length, and 75% for his head circumference. Both babies have more than doubled their birth weigh and have grown over 3 inches in length!

On Monday I am returning to school. It will definitely be very hard for me to leave Paityn and Conner :( I am already preparing myself. I keep telling Matt that I am sure I will cry in the morning. So we will see how it goes. I only made it 4 days into the school year in August when I was put on bedrest so I really haven't worked since May. It will an adjustment going back but I love teaching so it will help some.
