My boys are growing up, they surprised Mommy last night with a full night sleep. In the past they have slept in as late at 5:45 a.m., well last night they went from 9:45 p.m. to 6:55 a.m. I was shocked and I think it might have something to do with the fact that this was their first full day and night on just formula. Yes, that's right I am weaning off breast feeding for the dreaded day drawing near, my first day back to work. Now don't go getting all judgey, it just no longer makes sense to rent the hospital pump and spend the time pumping to only get 3 ounces, and who knows what I would do when I am back to work. The pump went back and to relieve some of the pressure each boy has been breast feeding about 5 minutes a day, I have a feeling it will be all dried up in just a couple more days. Sad to think we are out of that stage, but for us it makes sense. They got a couple good months of it and now I will have more time to cuddle them instead of pump. I can also now concentrate on eating low cal meals and getting my butt back into shape.
Thanksgiving was fun, and uneventful. I had a few teary moments throughout the day remembering how hard last year was for me and when we prayed before dinner and said how thankful we all were for Noah and Aaden. It was so amazing to see my little angels sleeping peacefully next to the table as we enjoyed our Thanksgiving meal.
The next morning our family of four set out to black Friday, I know nuts huh? And wouldn't ya know it we forgot the stroller. So out plan of going to Kohl's turned into Target at 5 a.m. so that we could each push a boy in a cart. I am proud to say that I am now about 98% done with my Christmas shopping and we got some great deals.
Saturday we went to the Christmas parade here in town. I love the parade and had always dreamed of someday taking my children to it. Again I remember how hard it was last year to watch all the children and parents ring in the holiday season. Well this year was our turn as I cuddled my little bundled up bundles and watched them enjoy the lights.
I cannot express how exciting this Christmas is going to be. The boys are in love with our Christmas tree and I had so much fun telling them where each and every ornament came from as they watched me hang the ornaments. It is amazing that I can go from dreading Christmas to now loving it, thanks to our little blessings.
