One Month Old Already?

As of yesterday, the boys are now one month old. I can't believe it! They had an appointment with their pediatrician and she said they're perfect. :) Gavin weighs 8lbs 5oz and Landon weighs 8lbs 6oz. They're both 21 inches long! She did say that Landon has a functioning heart murmur, which means there's no structural damage to the heart. Thank God!  She did say that she'll keep an eye on it, but most of the time it's something they grow out of. And even if he doesn't, she said it's nothing to worry about. Still, it's not very comforting to hear there's something off with your baby's heart, whether it's going to cause problems or not. My mom said my sister had one, as well, and that she grew out of it. Let's hope he gets this from his auntie! They go back on August 30th for their first set of shots. I really hope they handle it a lot better than I do!

Last night, I attempted to take some cute photos to compare to when they were brought home. I was in a rush and they were fussy, so they didn't turn out that well. Hopefully, next month I'll be able to get some cute ones!

Two Days Old :)

One Month Old :) 


This last month has been the most exhausting, anxiety-filled, yet happiest month of my life. Although they wake us up several times a night, it's so worth the sleep deprivation when they make the funniest faces and cuddle up to you before they fall back asleep. And you can't get frustrated when they cry because you know they just need you so much and that's the only way to let you know. I know there will be times that I will get frustrated and there's nothing wrong with that. But, for now, I'm enjoying these moments when they need me so much. There will come a day, faster than I'd like, that they won't need their mommy....so, until then, I'm enjoying this.
