Well we have officially survived our first night at home with 2 children under 2. It was a success, almost to good to be true! First, let me tell you about sweet, sweet Eli. He is a complete joy!! He looks around, tracks objects, smiles, bats at toys and is content swinging in the swing. We have a lot of work to do on his sucking, he can barley finish a 2 oz bottle, hence the reason for the NG tube. We are going to be working with him so he can feed all day on a bottle and the just use the ng tube at night. Got any tricks for sucking? We never had the issue with Malachi. Eli is 7lbs 10oz at 10 weeks old, hes a little guy but oh so cute!! Its hard not to just hold him all day!!
Last night Malachi went to be around 9 and Eli finally feel asleep around 10 (he was WIDE awake for 5-10). Both boys slept through the night which is AMAZING!! I even said to Josh "this is easy" I think I might have jinxed myself!! We will see how it goes the next few nights. The NG tube is WONDERFUL at night! We just set the pump to feed every 3 house, put enough milk in the bag and hook it up. I did learn this morning that he can not be moved after he eats or he will loose everything! He is currently hooked up o the pump getting a feed to cover what he lost, he is skin and bones, we need to thickin him up a bit!! Well I am off to shower and get ready for visitors!!
