Bedtime continues to be pretty smooth and happy here. While Daddy reads the girls their bed-time stories, I'm always sitting next to him and looking at my beautiful little girls and wishing I had a camera with me. So tonight I brought one along.
Aren't they adorable? The pictures of the two smiling girls were taken right after we tucked them into their cribs.
Gwen was taking naps in her "big girl" bed but she had some trouble falling asleep and I had to go into her room lots of times to remind her that she needed to stay in bed and try to sleep. Finally, she climbed back into her crib and zipped up her crib tent herself and fell fast asleep. That was the last time she ever wanted to sleep in her big girl bed and she's shown no interest at all in doing it since then.
Both girls have been having a bit of trouble getting to sleep at 1:00 when I've put them down for their nap. Two days in a row, we skipped naps because neither would go to sleep after more than an hour of singing and hollering and kicking the walls. They're not ready to stop taking naps but they might be ready to have a nap a bit later so we're shifting nap time to 2:00 PM. They should be good and ready by then!
Maddy wanted to move to the "Blue Room" several months ago and she still seems to prefer not sleeping in the nursery with Gwen. Gwen doesn't seem to mind sleeping alone either. I hope they'll want to share a room eventually. I never had a sister and always thought it would be fun to have someone to talk to at night. Maybe when they're a bit older, they'll want to do that. For now, they're doing great in their cribs so we're in no hurry to mess that up and put them into beds that they can get out of. Like the old saying goes: "If it's not broken, don't fix it!"
