Room Switching, Bed Moving, and No Sleeping...

Well, hello there blog, I've missed you. No, really. I've had such a hard time getting back into my blogging groove. I don't know why, you know I have tons to say. So, this will be a bit of a catch-up post, and then hopefully I can get back into the swing.

Jason's parents gave us the crib that they had used for our nephew and nieces, that no longer need it. So, I decided that it was a prime time to move things and babies around. We have a plan of having boys sleeping in one room and any potential girls sleeping in another room, and all the dressers and things in the bigger room. Our living room is essentially the playroom, so there is no need to have toys in their rooms. We attempted to put the boys in the same room, but they are both waking up so much still that they were waking each other up and nobody was getting decent sleep. So we moved Christopher's crib into the living room. The problem with this is when Dominic isn't asleep when Christopher is. So I knew this couldn't be a permanent fix. We don't have a third bedroom upstairs, we have a small room that Jason (sort of) used as an office. Well, I took it away from him (what a mean wife!). And we put that extra crib from Jason's parents in there, but wait...that's apparently not enough change for me! Dominic's sleeping hasn't been that great lately. As in, he wakes up in full freak-out scream, and only calms down when we're holding him. This has resulted in lots of sleeping w/ momma and daddy because, let's face it, we're lazy at 2AM. So, I decided that maybe we would try setting Dominic's new crib up as a toddler bed, so that we could lie down next to him and maybe calm him to sleep.

That works. 4 or 5 or 6 times a night it works. Poor Jason.

Sigh...this is one of those times that we have to remember that these moments, as long as they seem in the middle of the night, are fleeting. We will someday miss the fact that our boys don't want to cuddle up next to us, when they will not sleep the best with their feet firmly planted against one of us and their heads cuddled in the crook of the others' arm. But, it's hard to remember that in the middle of the night.
