It was magic.............

So last night was our 6th night in a row of the "bedtime routine" thing AND it still works. I have noticed that Ella takes a morning nap and is up for most of the afternoon so as soon as she gets out that bath and gets swaddled up her eyes are DROOOOOOOOOOOOOPY!!! Edie had a bit of a tough time falling asleep and staying asleep last night but she didn't fuss -- she just flailed about the bed like a fish out of water. She looks like she has someplace to go -- and is desperately trying to roll over. (she is smiling big at me right now from over in her swing).
Jon had them last night -- he slept with them because I have the worst case of mastitis. Fever. Chills. PAIN. Oh my god the pain. Wouldn't you know it I get a night of sleeping in the guest room and I couldn't sleep because I felt so awful. I told Jon I want a redo. Especially since I am sitting here in agony with 2 babies (who are fortunately being very well behaved) and he is out playing golf. Did he cancel his every Thursday game? Heck no. Will he pay for that? Heck yes.

I have a few new pictures but I want to take a few more so I will post them next time.

Yikes! Sorry to hear about the mastitis. Get better soon!

I'm glad that the bedtime routine is working. The bedtime routine is SACRED in our house. Thou shall not deviate from the bedtime routine.
