Sleep training success!

The boys went to sleep for the night at 6:45 pm.

Six.Forty.Five.

The sun was still up! I didn’t know what to do first: eat, drink, cook, bake, prepare work lunches, shower, watch TV, watch an entire movie…

We started sleep training two weeks ago and it has been amazing. If you’re interested in how we did it, check out my post on sleep training here!

I was hesitant to sleep train at first for two reasons: 1) I believed sleep training meant CIO (cry it out) until the babies pass out from exhaustion and I couldn’t bear the thought of doing that, and 2) I learned that even after successfully sleep training babies, they go through dreaded “sleep regressions” due to growth spurts and being more alert and stimulated.

After doing some research and finding a sleep training method I agreed with, we did it! The past week has been wonderful. The boys are in bed early, giving us time to eat, clean up, and catch up on TV shows and watch movies!!! We’ll ride this wave as looooong as we can.

What we’ve been up to lately…

We’re going out for more walks!

The weather was beautiful over the weekend. We hit the 80s!

Gonna have the boys enjoy sitting in this figuration before their feet are too long…

If you were to ask me what is “music to my ears,” it would be a hard decision between the boys’ laughter/giggles and…

SILENCE!!!

There are few things that beat the image of a sleeping baby. So precious, helpless, and perfect:

Check out the cribs…

The boys’ nursery has a new crib arrangement!

We initially had their cribs on opposite sides of the room like this. Then the boys’ Lolo (hubs’ dad) suggested this option. I love the idea of the boys being next to each other and eventually being able to see each other through their cribs. Shot out to our good friends Ryan & Jo for our beautiful maternity photos. We had them put onto canvases and they are now up in the nursery! You can see the rest of our maternity shoot here!

Well, I’m off to go and do something else because… it’s only 8:30! Watch out, I may sneak out and paint the town pink…
