Tenley's been practicing her hiccups. She got so good recently I think she can now stop. Aidy and Tenley both had hiccups while they were inside Erin. And Tenley has kept them up, especially when I sit down with her for some cuddle time.

She's pretty loud with them too.

We had a different kind of hiccup on Friday evening, too.

Since we came home from the hospital Erin would start the evening with Tenley, feeding every two hours or so and then around 3 a.m. I would take over trying to help Tenley sleep and stave off her hunger as long as possible, giving Erin a few hours to sleep on her own.

But Aidan developed a fever. We gave him some medication and he went to bed but a few hours later, just as Erin and I were ready to sleep, he was up, hot and uncomfortable.

We brought him downstairs for a while, put cold cloths on his head and feet, and soothed him.  A few episodes of Thomas the Tank Engine helped, too.

The plan changed and Erin took Tenley. I took Aidan. It was man-on-man defence. Thankfully, after cluster feeding from 9 p.m. - 12 a.m. Tenley slept for four hours. I kept an eye on Aidan. He woke up a few times but all in all it could have been a lot worse.

It made for a tired Saturday but recovery is happening.
