3 a.m. Humor

I've been told I'm one of those people that smiles all the time. That makes me sound annoying. I'm not one of those super perky annoying people though, I promise. But, I do love to laugh. I happen to think my husband is one of the funniest people I know. His humor sustains us during the trying times. We've certainly had our share of those times over the past 4.5 years.
Those middle of the night feedings suck. Am I right people? Evan has been waking up most nights to pound down 6 oz around 3 am lately. Typically I get up and change Evan while Collin makes a bottle for us and I feed him. Collin usually has a way of injecting his random comments into these middle of the night feedings that make them easier to tolerate.
The above picture is what Evan was sleeping in one of these middle of the night feedings. As I started to feed him, Collin said 'no wonder why Evan woke up to eat. You put him to bed in shoes. How's a guy supposed to sleep in cleats?' He then rolled over to go back to sleep and I was left cracking up.
Maybe I built that up too much and you won't find it funny at all. Maybe it was just funny because it was 3 am and I was slightly delirious from a lack of sleep. I don't know.
I mentioned in my last blog that Ella had the audacity to puke on the floor 30 minutes after I had cleaned it. That's the pic of her puke. I really shouldn't bother cleaning the floors...

What's going on this week? Babes have an appt for their 4 month checkup. Ugh. Shots.
I have friends coming over Friday to babysit and we are going on a HOT DATE. 
Friday also happens to be the day that we thawed and transferred these two babies into my uterus a year ago.I have so many emotions regarding this...  
We're trying to transition Ella into the crib. It's a slow process. We finally got her out of our room and into hers in her Rock N Play. Next step, getting her into the crib. I'm working on putting her up there for  naps this week. She's currently on her second nap in her crib today. We got spoiled with temps in the 70's this weekend and I have a bit of spring fever. 
Evan rolled over for the first time on Saturday. He proceeded to do it several times the rest of the weekend.
We're still cloth diapering and loving it.

One last pic, because I just adore these babies. It's been a wild 4 months, but it is amazing. I count my blessings every day. I don't want random pics of the babies all over the internet. Maybe I'm paranoid, but anyway, I'm going to remove the last pic in a day. I couldn't help but share it. I am so in love...

Have a great week everyone!!

Yep, middle of the night feedings at our house too. We don't do them together though, so no humor for me. My hubby is grumpy in the middle of the night though, so I'd rather do them alone with just one baby!
Jude pukes all over our floor too :) That picture made me smile. The dogs then lick it up ASAP, so whatever!
Your babies are adorable. They look alike, I think!

OK I just wrote a really long rant and I need your sympathy comments! Damnit, I so hate that my blog has to be private so it doesn't show up in people's feeds!!! :-(
