1 month

Crew is 1 month old!! I can not believe how fast this month has gone. I sit here and ask myself..."what have you done this past month?" All I can say is..."I loved my babies!"
This past month has been a HUGE life changing experience. Adjusting to two children is much more difficult than adjusting to one (at least for us). For a little info on our every day life take a look at this schedule (it's approx. and isn't exact of course...but we try):

7:00 - feed/change Crew
8:00 - feed/change Cooper
9:00 - Cooper plays, Crew naps
10:00 - feed/change Crew while Cooper snacks. Change Cooper.
11:00 - Cooper plays, Crew naps
12:00 - lunch for Cooper
12:45 - 1:00 - Cooper goes down for nap
1:00 - feed/change Crew
2:00 - 3:00 - Crew naps, plays, cuddles with Mom (this is the time I take to clean the house or nap)
3:00 - 4:00 - Cooper wakes up between then. feed/change Cooper
4:00 - feed/change Crew
5:00 - play time for Cooper, Crew naps
6:00 - dinner for everybody
7:00 - feed/change Crew. Cooper gets ready for bed.
8:00 - Cooper goes down to bed. Crew naps.
9:00 - clean house
10:00 - feed/change Crew and put to bed.

It's seriously all "feed/change" the boys! They both eat ALL the time! And they both pee a lot! I know the schedule looks pretty crazy...but believe me - it doesn't always work out this way. It's a good day when it happens like this :) I try hard to have us all on a schedule. Our days go by much smoother.

Crew has changed a lot in the past month. He's awake more, smiles more, and hardly ever goes cross-eyed! He eats good, sleeps great, and hardly ever cries. If he's crying it's because Cooper hurt him or he's very hungry. He was pretty whiney for a little while but that's improved. He's now sleeping in his own room and I don't really like it...but we are getting more sleep at night.

Overall, Crew is an amazing boy and we love him so much!!

ha! This sounds like my schedule about two years ago, except I only had one mouth to feed (if you don't count my hubby). It's definitely a lot of repetition! I just try to remember to embrace each moment because it goes by so fast!
