According to my breastfeeding app, from 11/25 to today:
Anthony = 12612 minutes = 8.76 days feeding 24/7
Nathan = 13332 minutes = 9.26 days feeding 24/7
= ~18 days of nonstop breastfeeding… that’s a lot of time out of my life sitting around staring at the wall. 🙂
There will be a wall next to the fridge and a custom shelf for the microwave
And here’s the layout
It’s been a little over 7 weeks since the kitchen remodel has started and the last two weeks there has been a lot of progress. The beam is up (the wall isn’t out yet), the floor is all pulled up, and the framing is installed. Luckily Steve doesn’t start work until next week because he’s been really involved with planning. The kitchen is going to look incredible. We can’t wait! Here’s some pictures
I took them with our fisheye to get the whole thing in view (I need to buy a wide angel lense), makes it look like our kitchen is shaped like a wine barrel
Thank you Grandma DeLuca for staying with us for the past week and helping out. We should’ve gotten a cute picture of the boys with her. She was so amazing with them. Somehow she even managed to get them to take naps regularly and in their cribs. It made the nights so much easier on Steve and I. Last night they woke up at 7, 12, 4, and 7… not bad at all!. We miss you already Grandma.
Over the last week or so the boys have both been starting to swat at things with their hands. They especially like this little octopus toy that has big googly eyes.
We managed to get some cute videos.
Anthony has been using his feet a lot. Here’s him kicking at the octopus:
One day last week I walked by his nursery where he was taking a nap and I saw just his feet and his little toes were playing with each other. He has lived up to his nickname so far, monkey man.
Today was a rough day! The boys pretty much ate every two hours and I let them eat on their own so they ended up eating every hour since they were on opposite schedules. Then between eating they would scream and need to be held until they fell sleep for half hour naps. Definitely seemed like a growth spurt to me. Luckily we had grandma DeLuca here to help! Hopefully tomorrow is better…
Oh…and I think the motor on my breast pump its dying…
…my hair that is. It’s falling out like crazy. Guess it’s common after giving birth. So weird.
Last night Nathan was fusing so I went looking everywhere for a pacifier. When I finally found one and went to put it in his mouth it turned out I couldn’t…there was already one there! He is skilled at the paci-cry.
Today is day 3 of being back to work. I’m on my lunch break so I figured I’d tell you boys how much I miss you. I am lucky in that I’m able to work from home which allows me to take a couple breaks during the day to breastfeed and see you during lunch. Plus I don’t have to waste valuable time commuting into an office and back home. Your dad is being an amazing stay at home dad. He gets frustrated at times but he is doing his best to keep you both entertained so I can focus on work. He’ll be in awesome shape with all the walks he’s been taking. It’s the surefire way to get you both to take a nap. One thing that going back to work has done is got me thinking about what I want to do with my career. I need to be working on projects that excite me since it’s taking me away from you. I’d much rather be hanging out with you guys at this point but your dad and I will do our best to find a spectacular nanny starting in April.
