Knox & Sloane are six weeks old today! A month and a half ago we welcomed the most precious loves into our lives
They are growing and changing all the time!
I’m not sure if it was a fluke or what, but Knox rolled over yesterday! Luckily, I was sitting right there and got a pic when he landed, haha. My mom was over and was able to see also.
I’m hoping to get better at taking videos.
Knox went to the doctor this week and he does have some reflux. He isn’t projectile spitting up. It is more silent. I can hear it come up and he swallows it back down. Occasionally, he does spit it up. This is a package deal, of course, so he is fussy after feedings, arches his back, kicks his legs, etc. He was prescribed Axid. I’m not sure if it’s started helping already, but it didn’t seem quite as bad yesterday and today.
Many of you have asked about the schedule and routine we have going right now. I’m working on that post. I will aim to post it on Tuesday!
Knox & Sloane have really been doing good with bedtime and naptime (why does it spell check say bedtime is one word and naptime should be two?)… So, last night they were in bed by about 8:45. Not a peep until 2:30am. We got them fed and they were back in bed by about 3 and then woke again at 6:30am to eat.
I have noticed Sloane kind of hanging out more during nap time and sleeping a little less. So maybe that is helping her sleep better at night? I’m not sure. It could just be that she has chubby rolls storing her milk! ha
A few more grins this week. Brent and I get so tickled at all the faces they make. We laugh and laugh at them. You’ve probably guessed by now, Sloane is our more photogenic babe. I’m starting to think she actually poses for the camera.
At Knox’s appointment on Tuesday, he was 8lbs. Last Monday, he was 7lbs4oz. Growing boy!
I think someone asked about the new glider. I don’t think I’ve posted a picture of it. It is from Buy Buy Baby.
Now, how about lots of sweet baby pictures?
A lot of these pictures were taken from about Thursday-Saturday last week. I had intentions of posting on Sunday, but never got around to it. I want to journal our days with these sweet ones, so I’m doing that now
If you have Twitter, you have seen a few of these pictures already. I simply can’t resist sharing as I take them. I really need to work on using my real camera more often, but the phone is also much more handy.
So, Brent was home with us on last Thursday & Friday. We got out a bit on Thursday for lunch and again on Saturday.
Lunch on the river…
Sweet faces snuggled up
Before lunch on Saturday…
I blogged a bit about the Arkansas game and Brent losing a bet and having to sing the Bama fight song. Here were a few others from Saturday.
Tummy time. The one of Elton watching, too, cracks me up.
Learning what a rubber ducky is….
Let’s talk abut the sweet little guys face. Adorable. He was snuggling in bed with me one morning when the sun was coming up Brent loves the last one.
Oh, and Sloaney this week. Isn’t she something…
They are my favorite….
We aren’t obsessed or anything, ha!
Brent made a trip to Arkansas this week and brought us all back some flair. The kids scored these cute onesies.
Believe it or not, they really don’t have a ton of razorback stuff yet. Most of what they have, they have to grow into. I’m also on the hunt for miss Sloane a bow.
My sweet friend, Katheryn, sent Sloane a beautiful gown and blanket. We love them and hopefully fit into the gown soon!
I guess I’ll go ahead and blog this in case any of you have experienced. On Wednesday, I was nursing the babes and started having some weird breathing. I could feel it low in my throat/high chest..middle, by collar bone..hard to explain where. Anyways, it lasted for about ten minutes. Later that night, it started happening again and seemed to last longer. I decided to check my blood pressure. I don’t even remember what it was, but my pulse was 43! That is LOW. Much lower than would it should be. I monitored for about an hour with the machine and my hand and it ranged from 37-46. I had my 6 week postpartum check the next day so I was hoping I could have it checked out then. That was yesterday. My OB had some blood work drawn. He said Lance Armstrong and athletes have low pulse, but I’m not currently in that category. He said it wouldn’t raise much concern if I weren’t having the little breathing spells with it. So, he had me schedule with another doctor to get checked for bradycardia. Kind of freaks me out, but I’m hoping it passes. I’ve still been checking randomly, and it’s still low…in the 40’s. I’m going to chart it and my blood pressure to take to the doctor on Monday.
