The teasin' has begun...

The girls have started "sleeping" through the night sometimes. It's still hit or miss and it's not every night. Here is how are schedule is looking these days...



Between 6pm and 7pm the girls are getting rice cereal. Thankfully it has helped tremendously with Coralee's spit up issues.

At 10pm we go upstairs, put on pj's and sleep sacks. Then Jon and I each take a girl and give them their last bottle with the lights dimmed. Once they finish we snuggle, burp and off to bed they go. On Sunday night and Tuesday night they both slept til 7am. The other nights Brennan woke between 4 & 4:30. She sucked down a bottle in 15mins. Then I woke Coralee, she took a couple of ounces and was back to sleep. Note- I'm still waking Coralee, especially on work days because I don't want her to wake at 6 when i need to get ready. This was the piece of advice I got over and over again before the girls arrived, "Keep them on the same schedule." I do think she would sleep through the night, but I'm not ready to risk my sleep.


Dade did this very same thing before he started sleeping through the night. So I'm hopeful that 8 hours of solid sleep are in my future and moving the girls out of our room.
