Justin and I can't wait to take the boys exploring every inch of this property. We can't wait to take them fishing, to shoot their first deer (I think I will skip that one), four wheeling, dove hunting, turkey hunting, build forts...the possibilities are endless!

Really?!? Reflux!?! Geez. Can't we catch a break?
So, he got meds he had to take morning and night. They seemed to start helping which was encouraging. Then Stockton started the same thing last Friday night. Of course...what one brother does the other is usually quick to follow. With the Dr's approval we started him on the same meds (Axid) the next morning.
Maybe we caught it early enough for Stockton because he is doing pretty well. You can tell he doesn't feel great...but hopefully we can keep it from getting worse. Archer on the other hand started getting worse on Monday. Yesterday was a nightmare so I called the Dr and he changed our meds to Prevacid. Keep your fingers crossed that this will help my sweet little guy. It breaks my heart to see him cry and refuse the bottle, then look at me with his sad, watery eyes and still smile at me. I just want to fix him!! I want my happy, healthy babies back. How does this 'just show up' so quickly?
To sum the last two weeks for us up...babies crying, refusing to eat, night feedings, momma crying, babies crying, refusing to eat, night feedings...repeat, repeat, repeat. Oh yeah...last night ended with momma putting the babies to bed and sitting on the porch in the dark with a very strong adult beverage. It was much needed and enjoyed.
Anyways...enough about our rough few weeks. We have had plenty of happy, fun and cute moments lately dispite the craziness. Here are some videos and pics of the good times :)
Enjoying some Tummy Time today!
I FINALLY caught Archer rolling back to tummy on the floor on camera. He does it in the crib but has just started doing it on the floor during play time. I really think he is just trying to tell me it's time for a nap in this video.
Archer rolling onto his brother...It may be time they get their own play gyms...
And sweet Baby Stockton has started talking to himself... alot. All the time. Especially in bed. Naps, nighttime...it doesn't matter! I took this little video when I put him down for a nap last week. It's kinda dark, but you get the idea.

They eat at the same time...plug those bottles in their mouths and watch them go!
Boy, am I glad he was in the Boppy and not on my lap this time!!
Yes...I put a pic of my baby's poop on the blog.
It's Thursday...I might not be in the pics but I embraced the poop and so should you :)

We played and cuddled in between loads of laundry.
It was just what we needed...a nice, quiet day.
I missed the boys, but the pooches needed some lovin'.

Everybody is rolling like crazy lately, and it's because they want to and because they can! Both boys rolled from tummy to belly around 4 weeks old, it wasn't consistent but it was happening. Considering they were 5 weeks early the really should have still been in the womb! But, as they grew and got a little bigger the less often they rolled. I still wonder if they just got so mad on their bellies they just flipped on over because most of the time there was some screaming involved :)
And, as of yesterday, Archer is officially a tummy sleeper. I continue to lay him down for naps and for bed on his back but it doesn't take long for him to roll to his tummy. I want him to be able to sleep comfortably on both so I am just going to keep starting him out on his back. During every nap yesterday he never made a peep and I would find him on his belly. When I would roll him over to wake him up he would squint those tired little eyes at me and then promptly roll right back to his belly. Same thing with bedtime...the last few nights he has cried around 12:30am to be rolled over...not last night! I peeked at the monitor at 11:30pm and he was already on that tummy. At least he knows what he wants and how to get there! That, and it's obviously not up to me anymore how he sleeps unless I want to roll him onto his back again every 5 minutes...nah, mom needs some sleep! And there is nothing cuter than that little baby butt sticking up in the air...LOVE IT!
