Well, we finally decided it was time for us to start letting the babies sleep 12 hrs. I know, you are probably thinking "What? LET them sleep 12 hours???" Yeah, LET them sleep 12 hours, you read right. Todd & I have actually been holding on to the 5am feeding for our own selfish reasons. Todd likes to see them awake before he goes to work & I LOVE to BF them all 1st thing in the morning. We both knew the minute we let them sleep longer, they would & sure enough it happened just like that.
We decided that today we would transition them to not eating at 5am. Sofi & Ian never even woke up but we knew this would happen b/c we have been waking them up for the 5am for quite some time now. Gabi woke up a few times at 4:15, 5ish, & 5:45 w/ a squawk or 2 but went right back to sleep. I have a feeling tomorrow she won't wake up at all knowing that she isn't going to get the boob. WAAAAA...I'm so sad! I LOVED to feed them in bed! It just isn't feasible w/o someone here though so I'm back to giving BM in the bottle for the girls. Maybe I can still BF on the weekends w/ Todd's help. So, we now have another "new" schedule...
7am ~ Wake up & play (they are use to playing right after they wake up)
8am ~ BF/Bottles
8:45 ~ Cereal & fruits
10:00 ~ Nap time!
11:30 ~ Wake up & play
12:00 ~ BF/Bottles, play afterwards
12:45 ~ Lunch is coming soon...possibly by the end of the month.
2:00 ~ Nap time!
3:30 ~ Wake up & play
4:00 ~ BF/Bottles
4:45 ~ Veggies
5:30 ~ Family walk
6:45 ~ Bottles (formula w/ a tbs of rice cereal)
I haven't decided whether or not I like this new schedule. I can tell you it was nice getting 8 hrs of continuous sleep although I was up every time Gabi woke up. I think it may work out better this way. We'll see!
When Sofi isn't in the best of moods, she sucks on her paci & puts a burpie cloth over her head. She is very content this way.
Here are Gabi's 2 "Ike's". It was HELL getting this shot, LOL!
I LOVE this picture of Ian b/c he looks like he got caught doing something he shouldn't be.
