Personal Pacifier and Sleep Deprivation at its best!

Wow these boys are getting the best of mommy's energy! The first week I thought I had total control and then the total sleep deprivation has totally kicked my butt! I have yet to nap when they nap, considering their nap schedules are not the same, which I learned the hard way yesterday when I decided I would take a nap with Luke while Vincent took his! I got my mind totally set on a nap so I fed Luke and low and behold a nap was not in his agenda! He has had some horrid gas issues and it has him REALLY upset at times, and it was one of those times! His high pitched screams are killer, especially when you try EVERYTHING to stop it and ease the pain or fix the problem. Also, he WILL NOT take a pacifier which has turned me into his personal pacifier, which gets old! I was to the point of complete tears emotional breakdowns twice in the past few days, I was ready to try anything! 

We tried Mylicon a few days and nothing, so I decided to get Gripe Water and give it a try yesterday, well I must say he was an angel last night and today...I am not sure if it is just a coincidence or not, but I am a much happier mama! I feel so much better that he is getting relief and I hope it stays that way! So thank you Gripe Water for helping my gassy little man and also for helping me to get 3 hours of sleep at a time! :) We're slowly but surely going to get through the sleep deprivation and gas! :)

But regardless of the gas, Luke is doing amazing and growing like a weed!

Vincent is also doing great! He is a riot and loves riding in this little wagon for his blocks! 

and he now knows how to pull it behind himself...It's only a limited time until he will figure out that Luke will fit perfectly! :) 

Until next time...xoxo

  1. I was the human pacifier for Alex and Jordan for six months, you poor thing, I feel for you. Hang in there, it will fly by as I cannot believe that Luke is almost one month old already.
