Cheryl @ Twinfatuation hosts Make My Monday and I am joining in again. Although its Holy Week and we pretend to be Catholic, nothing Christian is making my Monday. However, another sort of religion is: the Red Sox!! If you are from Boston, or have ever been here, you know what I'm talking about. This is the one religion that everyone here follows, at least from April to October, November if we're lucky.
In honor of this holy sports day, the babies have donned their first Red Sox outfits - thanks Fav Auntie!! They might have to wait until next year to go to their first Sox game, but there's no reason we can't start indoctrinating them now, am I right? Here they are, the littlest members of Red Sox Nation:
The hats did not go over as well...
In unholy news, the twins have had a bit of sleep regression this past week. Wednesday night, Sebastian woke up at 1am for his middle-of-the-night bottle. This was weird because he had skipped that feeding altogether for 3 out the previous 5 nights and when he did take it, it was around 4am. His sister quickly followed suit and every night since then, both babies have woken up no later than 230am for their middle-of-the-night bottle. This, in and of itself, isn't so bad - I'm still only waking up once, its just a few hours earlier. They still get up at the same time in the morning.
But last night, one of my alone nights, they decided that sleeping was not nearly as exciting as crying. Sebastian woke up at 1030 (yes, I was asleep, had been since 9) because he escaped is uber-swaddle sack. Or, his forearms did. Re-wrapped and back to sleep. Then, they both were very awake at 1am, so I fed them, hoping they would stay asleep until 630. No such luck. They were awake from 415 until 515, necessitating many trips to the nursery to replace pacifiers, in hopes of calming them back to sleep. Eventually it worked and they stayed asleep until 630, at which time they both woke up, happy as pigs in shit. Mommy, not so much.
I know that this isn't really that awful. It's more just out of character for them. For the past month, they have been very predictable little sleepers, sleeping through the night a handful of times. So, its seems like this is a big step back and is trending worse with each night. Not sure why this is happening although one person's theory was that if they are hitting one developmental milestone, they may fall back in another. This may be our case since both little ones have been all about their hands lately, which I'll post about later, with lots of pics. Could this be the cause?? My hope is that it doesn't last and we can go back to our nice, calm, predictable overnight routine.
