Busy Sping

I've not had much time to blog lately - other than posting some pics. The twins need to eat every 3 hours - even if they are sleeping and since it takes about an hour to feed them there's no way Cody and Allison can do it on their own - so I try to go down ever other night or so and do the midnight, 3am, and 6am feedings. So yeah, I'm exhausted. But I love it. Its grandbaby time so I'm not complaining in the least. Soon they'll be past this stage and I may not get that kind of time with them again so ... what's sleep anyway.

Last night I officially mixed the babies up. Cody and I went to feed them at midnight and I picked up who I thought was Owen. They've both grown a lot lately (Eli is 8lb 8oz and Owen is 7lb, 10oz). I was commenting about how much more like Eli, Owen is looking. I said a few times that he looks like Eli did a few weeks ago (because Eli has always been a little bigger than Owen). Cody was agreeing, then suddenly had a funny look on his face and said, "Wait... we switched them... that is Eli". I knew it was bound to happen. I'm kinda proud that it took me a month to do that.

And the tulips I planted last fall are beginning to bloom. They're a mid-season variety that make me wait ... and I hate waiting ... but they are really beautiful when they bloom. I'm thinking in another week they'll all be bloomed out and it should be pretty stunning.
