Noah is now taking a bottle twice a day while still getting continuous feeds. It is sometimes hard to feed him because he sleeps most of the time. That is ok becasue his little body needs the rest to heal. Also, his intestines are working well - we'll spare you the details. He, too, has started having bradys lately just like the others, and bounces back quickly. They say this is normal even for adults but we are a little stronger than the babies are. Noah tips the scales at 4 lbs 10 oz!
Cohen broke his string of "no bradys" the other day. Finn had one and seconds later Cohen had one while sleeping. This counts toward the "7-day" rule so he gets to hang with others for a little longer. Cohen broke the scale at 5 lbs 7 oz!!!
It is amazing how sometimes Finn and Cohen's heart rates will be exactly the same and they'll wake at the same time. Yesterday, Mari nursed Cohen and Finn - at the same time!. It was like a race to the finish. Finn would open an eye and check out Cohen and then they would both start feeding furiously, stop at the same time, and then go at it again.
Our friend, Jenn, from Austin, came to visit this weekend with her baby, Ansley. Ansley is 4 months old now. Holding her was nuts compared to our babies. I realized just how small our little guys are right now, but they are catching up quickly. How our lives have changed! 3 years ago we flew to San Francisco with Jenn for a fun-filled weekend of wine, staying up all night and all kinds of craziness! We are all parents now, and have whine at all hours of the night, and lots more craziness!
It is still weird that we have 4 babies and our lives haven't changed that much.....yet! We went out for a nice dinner last night after hangin with the babies all afternoon. It is so cool to have Mari back in action from bedrest and to be a team again.
