big shots for big girls

well, the shots went surprisingly well yesterday. Both girls screamed for the minute they got the shots and then promptly went to sleep on H's shoulder and stayed asleep until the tylenol wore off. at which point I nursed both and drugged them right back up with more tylenol.

Today brother Fi is here and they've been angelic. sleeping in between all feedings and going for a good 3 1/2 - 4 hours in between. Heaven. Now if they would only keep that up... I have a feeling it's short lived and due mostly to them being tired from the vaccinations.

It's 11pm and I am headed to bed. H and Brother Fi are watching tv and babies. I think I will shut the booby bar for the night and let them have their bottle feeds overnight. maybe I will get some sleep... highly doubtful.

tomorrow is my birthday party. I will be 30 on Monday. Oy. I will officially be in my 30's with two kids. double oy.

A Scream A Minute

we are the house of farts these days. and for the first time ever, I'm the least gassy. It wouldn't be so bad if they didn't scream all day and night. oh and did i mention the hiccups? So much fun

I bought mylicon (which gets spit back at me 90% of the time) and gripe water, but neither seems to be doing all that much. I'm exhausted, and I think H may just stay on the train one night and see where it takes him.

Tomorrow we are headed to the pediatrician for our 2 month shots. That should make my day so much more fun. The doctor suggested tylenol before the appointment. He's under the impression it will make them sleep. Ha! fat chance! I'll let you know how it goes. I have much fear and trepidation.

anyone have any bright ideas on how to deal with two babies who don't like to nap? I don't know where they get this from, I personally love to nap. I'll do it anywhere. not these two. Right now I have two seconds while C sleeps in the sling and Z makes eeking noises in the crib. I just stuffed 1/4 of a bbq chicken into my face, cold, using my hands as it's 4pm and all I've eaten today is a bowl of cereal.


oh and if you really want a fun story, ask susan about tailgaiting at the police concert last night with me and felipe the breast pump. Nothing says "good times" like a woman pumping breast milk in a parking lot, except for maybe a woman pumping breast milk riding down the palisades parkway at 70 mph. Hot stuff I'm telling you.
