progress

well since my last two posts we have been making progress.. although a bit painful at times i am beginning to see some great changes.. thanks to my friend julie who gave me amazing advice as well as the encouragment i have received from so many of you my blogger friends..
the boys have been on a better schedule and have even been napping in a regular pattern of 45min to an hour, then up for two hours and napping again and so on.. the nights have been good too.. seperated the boys into two seperate cribs and have only had minimal crying in the middle of the night.. night one - 22min for one and 17min for the other. night two - 30 min for one and 24 min for the other. night three - no minutes for one and 12 min and 4 min for the other at two seperate times.. feeling better for sure..
they are put down around 7:30 or 8:00 and other than the small bouts of crying around 2ish they then will sleep till 5am when i will feed them and they will sleep till about 7:30 or so.. its working its really working and they seem that much better for it..
i'm encouraged that i am doing the best thing for them.. they are still smiling and laughing and being just great babies! tonite at church i was reminded how blessed we are... they are so content to just play with their toys and sing when everyone is singing... its so cute.
gotta run. lots of love to you and yours...

yay!! I am soooo glad it's working out for you! It's a really long tough road, but in the end it's totally worth it for you and the boys. Lily is asleep right now in her crib and when I put her in it she just look up at me, rolled over and went to sleep, no fussing!! That's after only 2 weeks!!

I'm glad things are improving. You are a great mom (and dad!) for doing a good but really tough thing, for the sake of your family. Remember, there may still be rough days and nights, but you ARE making progress. Keep us posted!

heather! we finally got net access at home yesterday! it was so good (and painful) to read about your latest adventure with the biys. oh man, you are so amazing... you have done SUCH a great job, way to stick it out..it's inspired me how you have found this community of support online too. so weird to think i'll be going back to new-born land in just over 2 months, with a whole different kid. crazy.
love you SO much,
jo
