A Look Into Our Lives

When we talk to most of the first things they say is, "How do you do it? It is tough with my one, I couldn't imagine having two!" Then when they find out that both Matt and I work they say, "Wow, ya'll must be always busy!" Yes it is true we are definitely busy but I would not change our lives with 2 babies in it :) A lot of people have been asking what are days our like so I thought I would post a typical day in the Macat household during the work week.

5:30 am-Wake and begin to get ourselves ready
6:15 am-Wake up babies if they are not already talking to themselves in their cribs
6:15 am - 7:00 am- Get Paityn and Conner dressed for school and feed breakfast bottle & breakfast for us
7:00 am - 7:20 am- Matt and I make our lunches and pack bottles and bags for the day
7:20 am- Matt takes the babies to Christ Lutheran, I go to school, then Matt goes to work
7:30 am - 4:30 pm Work
4:45 pm My visit to the Chiropractor and Matt goes to mow at the place he takes care of
5:15 pm I pick up the babies from Christ
5:30 pm - 7:30 pm-  Play with babies, cook dinner, wash bottles, attempt laundry, eat dinner, etc...
Around 6:30 pm or so I feed Paityn baby food b/c she is hungry :) Imagine that! LOL
7:30 pm - 8:00 pm- Matt gets home, eats... we bathe babies and make bottles for the next day
8:15 pm- Feed babies their bedtime bottles
8:45 pm- Put babies down for the night in their room
8:45 pm-10:00ish pm- Wash dishes from dinner, attempt laundry again, straighten up house, showers, etc..
10:00 pm - 11:00 pm- Bedtime for us!

On the weekend things are just as crazy as the week b/c this is when do our grocery shopping, cleaning the house, running errands, visit with friends and family, etc..

Our lives our quite hectic, but to be able to experince two bundles of joy at the same time is such a blessing! We are happy to have such wonderful and healthy babies :)

A New Beginning..

Last Saturday Paityn and Conner joined the holy family when they were baptized at St. Mary's Catholic Church. We were so blessed to celebrate such a happy and excited time in their lives. The day started out a little hectic to say the least! Conner got fever on Friday night so he did not sleep the best that night, it poured down raining early in the morning, then we woke up late. Plus, Conner's reflux had been acting up so he screamed the entire time we were trying to get ready and we left in a hurry leaving our house a disaster. Once we got in the car...God was already with us. Conner fell asleep and Paityn was being her normal happy self. Even after all the running around crazy earlier, we did make it to church at 9:58 a.m. and the baptism started at 10:00 a.m. So we are happy we were not late! The church has been under construction so even through all of the buzz saw noises in the background, things could not of been more perfect! Both Paityn and Conner hardly cried when the holy water blessed them :) After the baptism we celebrated with friend and family! We feel so blessed to have so many wonderful people who care so much about us!

4 Months

My oh my has our life been busy! The last 4 months have gone by so quickly and Paityn and Conner are growing like weeds :) Since my last post, we have made it through our first major colds, started Paityn on baby food, and Conner has now begun sleeping through the night! P.S. I am keeping my fingers crossed b/c I don't want to jinx it! LOL Monday the babies were officially 4 months and we went on Wednesday for their check up. Dr. Meyer said there was no need to correct prematurity percentiles anymore since they are doing so wonderful! So these are percentages for full term babies!!!

- weighs 16 lbs. 14 oz. 90%
- 24 1/2 inches 60%

- weighs 15 lbs. 7 oz. 60%
- 24 1/4 25%

Both Paityn and Conner talk all the time now and have smiles for everyone! It is such a wonderful sound to wake up to in the morning instead of crying :) but we do have those morning too. We also have been enjoying some afternoon walks through our neighborhood since the weather has been so nice!
Happy Girl!

She never knows what to do with her tongue LOL

Cute little grin :)

Love this face!
