So Big! and a Conversation With Logan

Yesterday we had to make a trip to the pediatrician. Caden and Colton were doing fairly well on the Zantac until this past weekend when they started showing more signs of discomfort, difficulty breathing and just an overall fussiness. I called on Monday, but the nurse advised me that the doctor would want to see them this time so that we could go over some options to help ease their discomfort.

When we went in we did the usual "weigh in" for the boys. At their two week appointment they both weighed 7# 3oz. Just two weeks later, here are their stats:

Caden: 8# 15oz
Colton: 9# 6oz

I can't believe that my little boys are growing so fast! DH and I started laughing at how much they have gained in the last two weeks. Logan was the same way as a baby too. Even though he was spitting up more than Caden and Colton do (Caden and Colton tend to swallow their spit up once it comes back up) he was always good at gaining weight. I lovingly referred to him as my "chunky monkey" as a baby.:)

The pediatrician increased their Zan.tac dosage according to their weight and told us that if we don't see an improvement in 7-10 days that we could call him and he would call in a prescription for Prev.a.cid or Pri.lo.sec for them to see if one of these works better for them than the Zan.tac. DH and I were both happy with this plan and are hoping that our boys get some relief from their discomfort soon.

Last night Logan and I had a cute conversation about him and his brothers:

Me: What do you think about your brothers being here?
Me: What do you think when they cry?
Logan:'s just kind of annoying. I don't like when they cry.
Me: I know it can be annoying, but you know that is the only way that they know how to "talk" us, right?
Logan: Yes, I know.
Me: And you know that Mommy and Daddy are the only ones who can try to soothe them. If you ever want to give them something like a blanket or hug or kiss them you have to get our permission, right? (I was just reminding him even though we have not had one issue with this)
Logan: I know, Mommy. Because the brothers are really fragile, right?
Me: Yes, they are very fragile.
Logan: Like one million times more fragile.
Me: Yes, one million more times fragile than a piece of glass. Just like you are one million more times fragile.
Logan: I'm not fragile.
Me: Yes, you are. Mommy and Daddy love you and Caden and Colton so much that if anything ever happened to you we would be so, so sad. We love you all so much.
Logan: I love you too, Mom.
Me and Logan: (Big SMOOCH)

Is it possible to fall in love with your five year old over and over again? :)
