There has been a lot going on this past month.
The crew has been experiencing a shift in their nightly sleep habits. It goes a little something like this…
From 2a-6a. Full throttle not sleeping. Wide awake. Wanting to lay in bed, awake. Wanting to be held, awake. Twins, awake. Big Sis, awake AND not wanting to go into her own bed. Hubby, awake. Five people in one room, in one little bed, awake.
Then magically, or not so magically, I guess it’s what happens when you pull an all nighter, (oh, the days of pulling all nighters when they were fun) all three, Big Sis and twins, fall fast asleep at about 6am.
Accept for hubby and I. By 5am, we typically accept our no sleep fate and give up.
But what is more miraculous is the amount of space such small beings occupy. It’s like each baby requires a king size bed the moment their eyes fall sound.
Closed eyes, arms spread wide. What is that?
|A little chicken scratch for your viewing pleasure.|
|Wing span limited due to pillow placement…|
|Personal space is no object.|
But, I digress. We are getting through, and having fun, minimal sleep and all.
We have said goodbye to summer and welcomed Fall.
|See ya next year dog days!|
The twins have turned 3-months old and Big Sister celebrated her 3rd birthday. All crazy to me.
|Happy 3rd Birthday Big Sis!|
I wanted to share the one and only cake I will probably make and decorate this year. I was pretty excited about it because we all know I don’t bake. Or decorate sugar in the form of cake. This little Barbie, however, was very special. As I was bringing her out to the dessert table at Big Sisters birthday party, she flipped right out of my hands, did a few flips and landed standing straight up. Looking just like she does above. #superbarbie #miracle. I, obviously, am the hostess of the year.
If you are looking to hire entertainment and wanted to do something a little different than a clown for your birthday party, just give me a call. I can drop your very special cake or flip a table full of food, maybe accidentally step on a kid. I am sure I can supply some sort of clumsy, dysfunctional, unexpected surprise for ya. Surely, to entertain a crowd. #momoftheyear
Now let’s get back to sleeping. Or lack thereof. I have found and perfected it in other forms and positions that have helped through the night. Some examples include…
|Consoling two babies, belly sleeping.|
|Holding babies and sleeping with one eye open, because rolling over the baby is not an option in this house.|
|Consoling one baby at a time, because, well, why would they both sleep at the same time?|
Aside from sleep, we have been having a good time. We have reached some really great milestones. The babies are full of smiles and coos. Which are adorable.
|These faces make everything worth while, that’s for sure.|
We have been getting back into a routine of super market shopping and cooking for the week on Sunday’s. Which is a life saver.
|Nothing to see here, nothing to see, just keep walking…|
The whole fam even attended a wedding. Big Sis had a blast tearing up the dance floor.
and sneaking sleep where we can.
So that’s a little bit of what’s going on over here. It’s been a great, busy, sleepless last month and we are looking forward to the holiday season! Here’s to the next month… cheers!
How have you and your families been welcoming in the new season?
