Yeah Little Boys!

Let me tell you how excited I am! The boys slept until 3:45 last night. Woo Hoo! That's their longest slept time ever. We feed them at 9:00 (I was asleep by 10:30) and I didn't hear a peep out of them til 3:45! I think they are getting the hang of it. I was telling Jason that I actually enjoy feeding them in the middle of the night more than any other time. I know you think I'm crazy, but....First, neither of them cries while I'm feeding the other. Reed always sleeps longer than Kyle, so he's snoozing while I'm feeding. Then when I'm feeding Reed, Kyle is full and has gone back to sleep. When I feed them during the day it always seems that one is mad that the other is going first...and then the one that was first gets mad that I didn't hold him long enough when he finishes. I think if they could talk they'd be saying, "But, Mama, I'm hungry too!" and "What about me?!" They are also REALLY hungry by the time their middle of the night feeding rolls around, so they always suck their bottle down really fast and never spill a drop. For some reason, both of them have a spitting problem if they aren't starving...I'm sure Jason is tired of seeing me with crusty milk in my hair. And finally, the phone doesn't ring with people trying to sell me stuff at 3:00 AM. Jason and I have learned that salespeople get off the phone fast when you tell them you have newborn twins. One actually had the nerve to ask Jason when would be a good time to call back. Jason said, "Well, I've got 3 kids under 5...how about in 4 years!" Well, there goes Kyle telling me he's ready to eat so I better run...

I'm going to start using that line to the salespeople. I may even go one better. " Four under five!" Mom
