I would never...

~ I would never let my babies share pacifiers.

~I would never dress Lynlee in Brock's sleepers or vice versa.

~I would never put my toddler to bed filthy dirty.

~I would never accidently forget to change my toddler's diaper until he was peeing down is leg because the diaper was saturated...two times..two days in a row.

~I would never pump breastmilk while driving down the road.

~I would never use a used napkin as a nursing pad.

~I would never reuse a bottle without sanitizing.

~I would never be confused on which baby was sleeping on me in the middle of the night.

~I would never go all day without eating.

~I would never eat ice cream everyday for 6 straight weeks!

~The simple things~

 From the time I found out that I was pregnant with Braxton (and years leading up to the pregnancy,) I dreamt of all the things I wanted to do with our first baby. As the pregnancy neared the end, I had every day planned out in my mind. I had the first year jammed packed with dreams. As you know, those dreams never came to fruition. So, there are things that I do with Cayden that are so bittersweet. The first stroller walk with a baby in the stroller, our first beach trip in Florida, walking through a store and stopping so everyone could see him, church dedication, swimming lessons, first swim in the lake. Even the smallest, almost unnoticeable "things" meant so much to me. Watching his little fingers reach up through his carseat cover, smiles in the morning, every new thing, his little voice, etc.

Last week I was able to experience one of my "dreams" with Cayden. I couldn't wait until the day that I could take our baby to the local water park and watch him/her splash through the water. Well, Cayden and I went and had a blast. Yes, I know it doesn't seem like much, but the entire day, I was on cloud nine!! Here are a few pics of Cayden enjoying the day!

(The last picture is actually of him getting ready to go to the lake...but I couldn't resist posting it too!!)

~one month~

WOW, I am really shocked that an entire month has passed.  It just doesn't seem like that long...I suppose the extended NICU stay makes our time at home seem shorter. 

~Brock Adam~

~ I weigh approximately 6.5-7 lbs.
~ I eat 2.5oz every 4 hours.
~I usually sleep between feedings, but I like to wake up 30 minutes before it's time to eat. 
~I am pretty alert and big eyed when I am awake.
~I wear preemie clothes (today is the last day for that) and newborn diapers.

~Lynlee Grace~

~ I weigh 6lbs.
~I eat 2oz every 4 hours. 
~I sleep a lot, but I like to be awake for a little while after my afternoon feeding. 
~I wear preemie clothes and newborn diapers.
~I am finally off of my caffefine, and praying that my monitor will be gone in a few weeks. 
~I showed my first smile on July 2!
