Next nap was a bit easier - I swaddled them both right away, rocked Lily (who went to sleep almost immediately) then picked up Charlie and rocked him for a minute or two (but he didn't really need it, as he's pretty good as self-soothing with his binky - I just wanted to be fair!). They slept again for about 40 minutes, then did it again for another 40 later in the afternoon. Woo hoo! I was afraid this good napping was beginner's luck and was sure I'd be in for it today, but right now they are on their second crib nap of the day! I really hope they can keep it up! If we can get the napping down pat, my next goal is to work on getting them to bed a little earlier. Right now we try to feed them their last bottle around 8:00 pm and get them to bed by 9:00 pm. I'd like to start getting them to bed by 7:30 or 8:00 pm so we'll see about that soon.
Sweet dreams, babies!
(PS: Joe is going to make fun of the amount of exclamation points in this post, but I don't care! Sleep is exciting!!!!)
Charlie and Mommy sneak in a cuddle. (And yeah, I'm aware that I look about 12 in this picture.)
Charlie and Lily playing in their rocker. They won't be able to fit in there together much longer!
"Hmmmm...what is that red bird up to now?"
Charlie and Daddy "wrestling." Charlie always wins.
