I always brag that I have great sleepers. They're certainly are in a weird schedule right now.
GREAT: both girls sleep until at least 7am.
GREAT: rorykate always takes a good morning nap, sometimes right after she wakes up.
NOT AS GREAT: sometimes I let rory nap too long in the morning, when leah and i get caught up in too much fun playtime, or less fun chores.
GREAT: rorykate is in great spirits in the morning. who wouldn't be with about 14-15 hours of sleep?
GREAT: leah usually asks to take a nap, in the afternoon.
NOT AS GREAT: rorykate usually seems tired, but actually isn't. probably because she got 13 hours of sleep at night and a 2 hour nap in already.
WEIRD: leah rarely naps. she instead plays and reads quietly.
GREAT: somehow, leah seems fully rested after her "nap" time.
GREAT: rory usually sleeps for a bit in the afternoon, even if just for 30 minutes.
NOT AS GREAT: 5:30 at our house. today, leah was begging to go to sleep. actually begging "please mommy it's bedtime." rory was also begging, but more with just lots of tears.
GREAT: i'm usually able to hold both of them off until 6:30 with food and books and baths. tonight we only made it to 6:10.
NOT AS GREAT: both girls wake up in the middle of the night, rory to eat (because she's been asleep for like 8 hours already) and leah wakes up with nightmares.
GREAT: both girls go back to sleep almost immediately after a nursing (rory) or a snuggle (leahmadison)
it's hard to remember sometimes at 5:30pm or 3am how lucky i am the rest of the day. really, i'm lucky even at 5:30 and 3am as well. :)
