Cold and rainy today! Not what I was hoping going in to a full week of Paige being out of MDO. We made it to the gym and grocery, and I got the crazy idea of trying 1 nap a day for the twins.
Brilliant. Genius. Best idea I have ever had. Seriously.
The boys had seemed not ready to go to bed lately, even at 8 PM. Their morning nap was extending longer and longer, then they weren't wanting to take an afternoon nap until 3 or later, making them not ready for bedtime. So I decided to give it a whirl, and our day went like this:
Wake: 8, breakfast straight away
Straight to grocery
Nap for all 3: 12 - 3!!!! It was wonderful! For all involved. The kids all woke up in great spirits.
Bottle of milk for the boys: 3:30
Dinner for all 3: 5:15
Bottles for the twins: 7:30
Bed for all 3: 8 (and when I say 8, I mean they were all in bed fast asleep at 8. Perfect).
I am loving this schedule. My mom had planned Thanksgiving dinner to be at 5 PM to accommodate the twins' schedule. But I called her today and was excited to tell her we could do it earlier now : ) It's the little things...
We were running late this morning to get to the gym, so all three kids showed up in their PJs. And we kept them on all day.
I love a boy who is man enough to play with a stroller. I hope he makes a good daddy some day : )
Paige loves to RUN! She has me say, "read, set, GO!" and she takes off back and forth in the playroom.
Have I mentioned on here that Paige is potty trained? Yipee! It was pretty easy, to tell you the truth. We decided at 2.5, it was time (for Paige - I know that every kid is different - some are ready at 2, some not until 3, some later than that). So we put her in panties, kept her drinking a lot of water, and put her on the potty every 30 minutes or so. She took to it right away. In less than a week, I am happy to say she only wears a pull-up at night. Even a trip to the gym, grocery store (gone from 8:30-11) she had no accidents! We are struggling with #2, but everyone assures me that comes in time. I am so proud of my big girl!
Jack and Braley have their 1 year check tomorrow morning. David is coming to help me and I have someone watching Paige, so this will be one of the least stressful pediatrician visits I have had in quite some time!
