Big news!

Last night, both Benjamin and Asher slept through the night!  All week they had been taking turns sleeping through the night, and last night it just so happened that they both did it!  I woke up at 6 am with breasts the size and firmness of nice cantaloupes, so I knew something was up.  I sent Eric to make sure they were both still alive while I started pumping.  Yes, they were both alive, fortunately!  I pumped til I was comfortable, and then we both went back to sleep.  Apparently Benjamin woke up around 6:30 and my mother-in-law started feeding him.  Asher slept a little later, and then my father-in-law brought him in to me to nurse.  I am still really tired (I think I need to catch up a little), but if things continue in this vein, I will be feeling a lot better rested in the days to come. 

The nap thing... still not really happening.  I think Asher would be amenable to it, but not so much Benjamin.  But I will take what I can get in the meantime!  We are very lucky, all things considered.

I have to say that I am pretty sure the boys are getting cuter everyday.  They are getting so many kisses and so many visitors.  I told my mother-in-law that if they got a nickel for every time they were kissed, we would have at least their freshman year of college tuition paid!


  1. That's great!!! Just in time for you to get a whole night's sleep before going back to work - your clients will appreciate it if the boys continue this trend...
