Hi all

We had a quiet weekend. Daddy got home safe and sound on Friday. He was a bit jet lagged so we didn't do much. We went out to Del Pueblo, our favorite mexican restaurant. They have the best margaritas, don't they nana! hehe. Saturday Michelle and Chris stopped by to show us their new Enclave, that thing is niiiice!! It is so classy looking. Ashley went home with them to spend the night. Me, Aaron and the babies went to Dustin and Tasha's to help them move some furniture. They got a new couch that is also very nice. Sunday was church. After we got home I went and picked up Ashley. The weather has been so nice here so we worked in the yard and Aaron washed the car. The babies even came outside and played in the pack n play.
I weighed the babies this morning Preston weighs 13 lbs 4 oz and Lily weighs 10 lbs 7 oz. Lily has a dr appt tomorrow for her eye. She has yellow stuff coming out of it again and the drops aren't helping. I am going to ask him about her weight too and see if there is something we can do to put a little meat on her bones. She eats the same time as Preston but he eats 6 to 7 oz and she eats 4 to 5 oz then spits up alot of it. We started Preston on cereal. Not too get him to sleep longer but to make him fuller. We gave him a little last night and he loved it. he kept opening his mouth real big when Aaron would get the spoon close to his mouth. Lily isn't ready for cereal yet , she can barely handle formula. The funny thing about cereal is that people think it's like a magic potion to get your babies to sleep longer. It doesn't! At least not mine. Preston still woke up at his regular time, midnight, and ate his regular amount. I had to wake Lily up to feed her. So they ate at 7, midnight, 4 am and 8 am. Not bad.
Aaron is feeling a bit under the weather so he is working from home today. Me and the babies went to Jazzercise and brought daddy some lunch home.

Remember Presley spit up most of her formula, the only thing that helped, was, as she got older, we put a little cereal in her formula in her bottle to make it a little thicker and she would keep most of it.
