Okay, just when I thought I was getting it down pretty well, both napping staggered so I could get them bathed at different times, fed at the same time(kind of but just for the picture), my poor M gets the coxsackie A virus(remember those canker sores you used to get) and has not slept nor ate very much for the last 2 days!!! Ouch!!! I knew something was up, he wasn't sleeping his usual 11-12 hours, and everytime he ate or wanted his bottle he just lost it!!! (What a great time to wean him off his bottle though, we didn't before because we knew we would be leaving for Phoebe) The big hint was giving him some oranges which he just loves(wrong, wrong thing to give a person with canker sores) and he wailed and I saw those nasty little white bumps in his mouth:( Poor baby. He might be teething & getting his first year molars also, we can only hope.
The great thing about having a doctor daddy was he got some medicine to help him, of course, he wouldn't just believe me but was able to see with a flashlight when our poor baby was wailing the white bumps on his tonsils-double ouch!!! The bad news is he said 5-7 days. Don't know if I can handle the lack of sleep, of course I am still jetlagged, getting up at 330 am, but I think my sleep deprivation will cure it.
on my walker!
I can go zoom, zooom!!

Happy in my corner!
So, being a mommy of 2 has not been the most pleasant experience thus far. Especially when one feels really nasty and the other needs your attention because she is so new. I have had help, yeah(from Kathy, Ruth, and Deb), meals coming our way(, and my parents arrive on Monday, whew!! What a blessing it is however to have a baby who is pretty independent, and very advanced for her age. We are hoping that Phoebe was the carrier so we don't need to repeat this next week, but God has provided for that just in case:)
