Feeding, sleeping, and car troubles...

Good times at our house.

Emerson still won't eat from her bottle. Today she at 15 oz, this causes her to wake up several times throughout the night because she's hungry and then we have the same issue trying to get her to eat.

Eli is still screaming his head off for hours when we try to lay him down for bed and it's not crying it's screaming at the top of his lungs.

And our car needs a new alternator so we can't drive it any where until that's fixed since Marcus almost got stranded downtown on his way back home today. Which gave me flashbacks to our biggest and one of our only fights ever.

Right after we were married and and new residents of California our car broke down at Marcus' place of work. He hitched a ride home from work that night from a coworker, but we needed to get our car out of the parking lot so it wouldn't be impounded. Being young, newly married, living away from home for the first time in a new state, and having very little life experience Marcus and I were incredibly stressed out by this car issue.

We did determine that we needed to call a two truck, I looked up a number in the phone book, and then told Marcus to call. Who then told me to call, and I in turn told him to call. This argument went on and on and on and back and forth and it escalated until we were both shouting over who would call the freaking tow truck.

It was really bad. I think I cried, and in the end Marcus did finally call, but it was a production. It's so ridiculous looking back on it now, and we laugh about the fact that this was one of our only arguments,  and it was over making a phone call.

So luckily Marcus made it home and no tow truck was needed today. Although I imagine that we would both be fine with calling a tow truck now. My how far we've come in our 6.5 years of marriage.

Too funny!

I'm sorry the babies aren't doing any better. Has the doctor mentioned adding rice cereal to Emerson's bottle....that way what she does take is a bit heavier and maybe would hold her better. Just a thought.
