I haven't been on here in while. How is everyone? How are the new moms holding up?
Update on babes?
Brad and kaylee are great. Growing like bad weeds. Both are still bfing and brad loves it! I'm thinking Kay is close to weaning though they are starting to climb onto everything. I'm loving this age. I forgot how much fun it is. They are learning so much. Madly in love with them. And IM GETTING SLEEP! Brad consistently STTN and Kay is only waking once a night. No more complaining from me!
That's awesome! We're not sleeping yet but the days are certainly better. My boy is up once to nurse but it's after like 9 hours of sleep, so that has to count as sleeping through the night, even if I have to get up at 5am to feed him. My girly is still up every 3 hours. The past couple of nights have been especially rough, but I think her poor belly is getting used to the new solids.
We are doing well - the boys are working on STTN. We are headed in the right direction. Other than that, we are just working on still getting to know each other - one boy seems to be more calm and serious and the other is more playful and smiley.
My girls turn 3 in two weeks. So, we are in the trenches birthday party planning. They are interested in inviting some friends. They have also picked out what they want on their cakes. Not sure how I am going to handle that yet. Cupcakes for the invitees and small individual round cakes for the girls? We are now at a stage where they probably both need their own cake. They understand those things now.
Shelia- since the time change brad has been waking @ 5. I'm a mean mom and make him stay in there till 6. He's gotten the idea know because he stopped waking that early.
Erica- I can't believe they are almost STTN. it took me over a year to get my guys to do that. Beware of 4 month regression though! I used to brag about how great my NBs slept and then they turned 4 months. We are just now getting back on track!
Mel- 3? Whe did that happen? Happy birthday babies what did they pick for their cakes?
I will. They aren't eating at all during the night, but they still wake up, cry out, etc. So, I'm sure I still have awhile to go.... It's just nice not to have to change dipes and make bottles at 3am!!
