Thank you to those who checked out the info on iLatch and donated if you could! All opinions are welcome, but I believe we need to encourage and support one another. However, if you can juggle multiple, crying kids in an airport security line or from the front seat with toys that they won’t throw, talking to them or any other method, more power to ya!

Knox & Sloane are five weeks old
We have had a good week. Brent’s been back to work the first part of the week and he was home most of the day yesterday and today. I think we may take the babes out to lunch today.
One of the days, both babes seemed pretty fussy around feeding and play time. I think they are eating more and growing more.
I know I probably blogged this already, but so I’ll keep record in their specific posts..We went to the doctor on Monday and babes are doing good. Sloane weighs 8lbs4oz and Knox weighs 7lbs4oz.
It’s amazing how different a pound feels. She just seems to much bigger.
Knox needed a little silver nitrate on his belly button for it to heal up.
I also asked the doctor about his little lazy lid. It’s actually called Ptosis. The “p” is silent. We are hoping it heals on it’s own. The doctor just said he will keep an eye on it to determine if it is interfering when he starts to see more. I did have this one I was little, but I’m not sure if was quite as bad as Knox’s. Well, I shouldn’t say bad. The doctor didn’t really act like Knox’s was all too bad.
Sloane’s eye lashes and hair have both seemed to grow this week.
Knox loves to move close to Sloane in the crib.
They are going to bed about 8:30…waking up close to 1am to feed and then again about 6. Not too bad!
Their nails need to be cut, but I’m not brave enough yet. Laura, from Moms On Call, cut them while she was here and showed us how. Brent did one of Sloane’s hands this morning, so that was nice. She started getting wiggly so maybe the other hand later.
A lot of you have asked about their personalized outfits. I figured they would be in some preemie and newborn things for a while. So, I bought plain white onesies and had them jazzed up Most of them were created by Mary Kate’s Monograms. You can see some of them in this post, here, here here and here.
The babes are doing great at tummy time. In fact, here they are this morning with dad….
Both are really doing good holding their heads up as well. Every time we are holding or burping Knox, he acts like he just wants to hold his head up on his own….
While we were at the doctor’s office, Knox discovered my hair. He pulled it for the rest of the day. Here is grandma and Sloane at the doctor’s office.
They love lounging in the sun….here is Knox at the doctor’s office and Sloane waking up from a nap.
These pictures crack me up. The picture on the left if Sloane’s ‘I need to potty’ face and the right picture is her ‘all done’ face! haha
Mom, is that a dog?
These next few aren’t exactly from this week, but I wanted to post. Knox watching his first Razorback football game…
Don’t worry, they both fell asleep within seconds…
A few people have asked about all the cute clothes I stocked up on before Knox & Sloane arrived. Well, I didn’t buy too much for the newborn stage nor 0-3 months. I mostly have onesies for those times.! I knew wouldn’t be hanging at home the majority of the time. However, I do need need to get better about putting them in some of the things since they mostly are cuddled in their blankets.
Watch out Toddlers and Tiaras…
Here is Mr.Knoxy. No outfit for him this day…
Knox & Sloane got their first L.L. Bean totes this week I had actually debated on getting them some a while back, but could never decide what I wanted. My childhood friend, Ashley (who has 4 kids including a set of triplets!) gifted them They are the small ones and so cute. I know they will get great use!
When I was working on the nursery, I found Whimsey & Co on Etsy. Well, I found Sloane a pillow I loved that for the nursery. I ordered the pillow and a few other things and then Whimsey & Co sent a few other fun things. So nice of her! It’s all so cute!
Don’t forget about the Moms On Call special offer and giveaway! You have until Sunday night!
Have a good day
