Finally an Update!

Okay so I know I have been just horrible about blogging these days, but I have a great excuse now, lets see you guys try and find time to blog or do anything for yourself with 2 boys it is not easy anyways okay so I know melica and april both did an update for me when we had the boys so thanks guys well now I am going to tell all!
K well Pat and I had 2 beautiful little boys on Feb 15th Pat's B-day what a great b-day babe. Anyways we arrived at the hospital at 7:30 and was supposed to have the boys around 9. Things were a little delayed with my dr. assistant so it was alittle longer but they finally arrived Caleb was born at 9:56 weighing 5lbs 5oz and 19 inches long and Ayden was born at 9:58 weighing 6lbs 2oz and 19 1/2 inches long. I had a C-section so I did not even get to see my boys when they were born they were both sent to the special care nursery right away to make sure they were okay, so after that they got me put back together and got me settled back into my room and about and hour after delivery Caleb was brought to my room, but not Ayden well come to find out Ayden had some respitory problems and had to be put on oxygen and hooked up to some IV's and all so I actually did not get to see him about 10:00 that night for the first time, but I was the first person that got to hold him, his dad didn't even get to hold him until 2 days later so that was cool. Anyways Ayden ended up staying in the special care nursery the whole time we were in the hospital, we were there from sunday to thursday and we were told that he was probably not going to be coming home with us and that he would have to stay a few days longer. So thursday came and we were getting ready to go home and the dr. came in and told us the good news thatb Ayden was doing much better and he had a wonderful night and that he was going to get to come home with us I was so happy.
Well we got home and started trying to find our routine...yep we are still trying to find that hehehe, anyways I am finally starting to recover I went through alot more then I was planning it to be but I am finally doing much better and starting to get back to my normal self, no more bauling over every little thing, and I am enjoying the heck out of my boys. I find myself just staring at them constantly and never wanting to leave my room just so I can be right by them at all times, but I am getting better about coming out of my room now and taking the monitor around with me so I can get things done that need to be done.
K so I am not sure what its like to just have one kid, but holy hell it is crazy with two, I feel like all I am doing is changing bums and feeding and burping and doing loads and loads of laundry and never sleeping good times.
Well I just want to say I would have never made it through these last 2 wks without pat he has been the best throughout this whole thing, I could never ask for a better guy and a better dad, while we were in the hospital pat had to do everything cuz I was down for most the time and I couldn't do much so pat was going back and forth between our room and the Special care nursery to feed Caleb and then feed Ayden(once he was able to eat on his own) Pat was amazing and I love him so much. Thanks Babe!
Well lets just say things are much better now and we have finally got the boys on a good schedule and they are sleeping about 3 1/2 hours to 4 hours in between each feeding so thats been kind of nice so pat and I are getting at least 4 to 5 hours of sleep a night so I guess that is pretty good with twins.
K well we went to there dr. appt today and both boys are doing very well, Caleb has gained 11oz he went from 5lbs 2oz to 5lbs 13oz and 19 1/2 inches. Ayden went from 5lbs 10oz to 6lbs 5oz and 19 3/4 inches so they are both gaining weight and growing and just both cute as ever. Okay well sorry for rambling on but I just thought I would update you all on what it has been like for us for the last 2 wks.
Also just wanted to wish Mav a happy 18th B-day and tell her how much I appreciate everything she has done for her dad and I to help out with the boys she has been the best help throughout this whole ordeal she is a great big sister. Love ya Mav.
K here are a few pics of the boys!
