Can they look any more alike? Seriously! Todd has always said that if we were to have a girl that they had to look like me. HA! Well, look what happened? Sofi looks EXACTLY like him! Now, if you put Gabi next to him, she resembles him BUT not anything like Sofi & they are IDENTICAL. I'm waiting to see how they will look in a few more months when their heads have had a chance to shape up.
I know I didn't include pics in the last post & was told this. Sorry! I'm including a bunch this time w/ captions to make up for it. As far as everything else, we are truckin' right along. We now have another new schedule. It took me about a week to adjust to it but now that I have, I am much better rested. This is our latest eating schedule, 8am, 11am, 2pm, 5pm, 8pm, midnight-ish, 4-5ish am. I may have also mentioned this before but they get expressed breast milk (pumped milk) during the 8, 11, 2, & 5 feedings during the day. At night they get formula. No particular reason except I only pump enough to give each of them 4 4 oz bottles a day & rather than go every other bottle, I thought it would be more consistent to go 4 EBM bottles then 3 formula bottles. Since formula is known to take longer to digest, we decided to go ahead & do those at night. I'm not too sure about all that b/c they were already stretching their night feedings before we went to strictly formula.
Other than that, my life seems to be a cycle of feeding & pumping, feeding & pumping. Seriously, by the time I finish feeding the kids, I go downstairs, get my pump parts & then pump for 30 min. By the time I am finsihed pumping, putting the milk up, I have about 45 minutes to do stuff. Quite a few times, I have to run back upstairs for Paci Patrol. Yep, that means going up to stick a paci in someone's mouth. For instance, Sofi HAS to have her paci & if she wakes up w/o it in her mouth, she lets me know. What have I done???? This makes it almost impossible to get any kind of project or chore started that doesn't take longer than 5 minutes to complete. Eh, it is ok though. I've resigned myself to this fact & realize that this is only temporary. We will be on to the next phase before you know it & I'll still not have enough time to do what I need to, lol!
This is Gabi having a blast under the playmat. She is obviously enjoying it!
Here we have sweet Ianchito right after a bath w/ his hair standing up straight. I love this picture!
Well, we can clearly see that when Sofi is formula fed, she is not a happy camper! I guess she wanted to tell me where to shove it, LOL!
