Wow, time just flew by this summer. Way too busy with work which means I spent much less time with the girls than I would have liked. Things are easing off now and I might have a holiday this year yet. Here are a few pics over the past couple of months:
I can't really put into words how much these girls mean to me and how much they have changed our lives forever. Love.
I hope everyone is treating their Mom like they deserve to be treated. If you aren't going to see your mom, make sure you call her and tell her how much you appreciate her (if you do, of course). Tell her how much she means to you and how thankful you are to have her in your life.
7:30am is the worst part of my entire day... excluding weekends. This is the time where I have to kiss my girls and head to work. I hate it (the going to work part obv).
The updates have been very minimal lately and for that I appologize. I can't seem to find the time or the content at the moment. I don't want this to turn into a photo blog, but some of my readers probably prefer it... LOL
Writing is not my strong point, but I wanted to create this space so that I could look back at it one day and have a good laugh. It's an easy way to document my thoughts and feelings on this whole "being a Dad" subject. So far, not so good but I hope to keep at it and hopefully have a few funny stories as time passes.
Little things are happening each day. For example, last week Lily had her first tooth pop up! It's a sharp little sucker that can't be too comfortable for her.
I'll try to post more frequently and also add pics as I get new ones.
It's the day before the big day. Sleep training will commence tomorrow morning when we wake them up on their new schedule. 7am start time with a 6oz bottle. More food! The goal here is to get them in bed by 8pm each night. Routine, routine, routine.
Last night Lily didn't even wake up so she is well on her way. Except when I went in to see her fussin' at about 7am she had done a slip and turn. She somehow slid out of her sleep sack and did a backspin 180 and was facing the other way towards the baby monitor.
They sure are developing their own little personalities. It's fun!
This sleep training is going to be a grind but if we are persistent and don't give in, we will win.
The wife and I were trying to think of a night recently that was worse than last night and we could not come up with anything within the last two months. We were up with the kids at 1am, 2am, 3am and I was up again at 4am. I got them back to sleep instead of the usual feed. I finally woke them up at 7am. I guess this is a good thing since they didn't need to be fed, but the lack of sleep and the little fights that the wife and I get in are straining. We have to constantly remind each other to think big picture and not get on each other about small things like dishes. We can't compare what each other do on a daily basis because our roles are so drastically different. Her job is so much harder than mine and I really am so proud of how well she is doing with everything so far.
