Dare I Say It?!?!

I think Taylor is finally sleeping through the night consistently! (Ok watch, tonight, she won't sleep through the night). Emily is hit or miss. Last night she slept through the night. YEAH!! That means I got uninterrupted sleep last night. =) That was nice. Of course my body still woke up at 2:30 and was like what's up? Let's wake up now. ;-) Um, NO! But I did end up having to wake up at 4am. One of the girls kept crying out. By the time I looked at the monitor I couldn't tell who it was. Sometimes it sounded like Taylor and sometimes it sounded like Emily. It was probably each of them at different times. So I woke up and took a shower and started to get dressed. I didn't actually have to go in their room until 4:50 though. =) So I got to sit down and watch tv for like 10 mins. Of course Connor decided to wake up at 4:40am. So he went into bed with Daddy while he finished sleeping. Kids.

ETA: Since Joanna commented about her's sleeping from 11pm - 6am I guess I should say what time, huh?!? Let's see, Taylor is sleeping from 8pm - 4 or 5am. Emily is 8pm til about 1:30 or 2:30am if she wakes up and then I get her up at 5:30am. So there ya go! We actually start getting them ready for bed (bath, change, feed) at 7pm. Depending on how long it takes them to eat depends on what time they go to bed. Sometimes it takes them an hour to eat (if they are falling asleep and/or playing with the bottle). I'll give one of them a bath (which ever is more fussy) and dress them for bed and then hand her over to Surbjit to feed. Then I do the same to the other one, but I feed this one. Sometimes we'll end at the same time depending on how they do eating wise. =) And of course by the time we start getting them ready for bed Connor "should" be bed. We usually put him to bed by 7pm, 7:30 at the latest. I know I always have a TON of questions about what people do at night so I hope that helps!!!

Oh, hurrah! Hopefully Emily will join in soon.

Ours have been sleeping, for the most part, from about 11 PM to 6 AM, but that's still sometimes hit or miss.

Good luck! I hope Emily starts sleeping soon.

Oh, off-topic, but your scrapbook pages at the top of your blog are gorgeous!! Do you make them digitally?

Congrats on the sleep success! Naps are finally going okay for us now, but nights are awful. Sounds like you have a good routine going!
