So I had my own MD appointment today (everything is fine - just another check up since the babies were delivered) and Brent took a day off of work to stay with the short people. It was the first time he'd had both of them together by himself and for an indefinite amount of time. He did a FABULOUS job!!
The other day I asked him why it was that when moms are with their children it is considered parenting but when dads were with them it was considered baby sitting. He flatly told me that it was my job to do such. ha - needless to say, after a night of no sleep that was the wrong answer. But then again, it was a loaded question so I suppose he ought to have just smiled and stayed quiet if he really wanted to get out of a sticky situation. (or I could have kept the obnoxious questions to myself right?) So it's not always roses here, but we are a team none the less and I must commend his efforts wholeheartedly - I'm the first to admit that I'm not a dream to live with!
Anyhow, when I walked in, both babies were fed and sleeping! Amazing! Truly, just another example proving what a lucky girl I am.
Things are going well overall here. Mary Louise has gone through quite the growth spurt over the last week or so and looks like a different baby now! David is doing much better with his reflux and has started eating more in the last couple of days - maybe a little spurt is coming his way as well? Brent and I are learning to function on about 4 hours of intermittent sleep (at least we like to think it's functioning). All well worth it!
