This week: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

We've had a lot happen this week. First, the good.

1. The babies are 3 months old!

2. Notice anything about sweet Carter, on the left?

Yes, no more oxygen! Finally, we are off the oxygen. We spent 4 hours at the pulmonologist's office, and he passed his test. We are thrilled that he is doing well, and that we no longer have to cart around the oxygen tank. Here he is doing his study at the doctor's office.

3. My house is clean, and I didn't have to clean it. Dan knew I was struggling in keeping up with everything, and so he hired someone to come in and clean. She's coming back in 2 weeks. I love her.

4. You'd think I never did anything with Tyler by the looks of my posts, but hey, I am a good mom. We've been to the park and the library within the last week, with the twins in tow. I am starting to get the hang of it.

5. Last night, Brady slept for 7 hours, and Carter slept for 8. YEAH!!

The Bad
I got a migraine Monday night. I am actually surprised I haven't gotten one sooner with the stress and lack of sleep. I am very grateful that I only get these 3-4 times a year, and that mine are not debilitating. I am also glad it happened in the evening so I could just go to bed and Dan was here to take care of things.

The Ugly
Whatever, no ugly here. Just cute babies!

Yay! No more oxygen!!! And good job boys for sleeping through the night. Oh that makes such a difference when you finally get that much needed block of sleep. Way to go Dan on taking initiative on the house. You should give that idea to Jeremy:)

I can't belive how big they have gotten. Tyler is so cute and we miss you all so much. We will be coming in December because the schools are all on break. We look forward to hugging and kissing all those sweet babies. Oh I know Tyler you aren't a baby but we sure look forward to kissing on you as well. Love to all Grandma Stansel and Grandpa Stansel

They are getting so big and cuter everyday. I can't believe how big Tyler is getting. I bet he is a big help when it comes to the babies. We are looking forward to seeing you in December. Lots of hugs and kisses.

What cuties. Glad that Carter is moving along.

Reed also slept all night last night for the first time. . .wish I could expect it again, but, I don't

Did you find yourself waking up every hour after 3:00 A.M. just wondering when a baby would wake up-I did. What a waste of a perfectly good night for me.

Carter and Brady are absolutely adorable and so well loved! What wonderful news that Carter no longer needs oxygen. You are so wise to hire cleaning help! Take care and enjoy every minute with those sweet boys. They will grow up all too quickly!
