ONE Day!

That's how long it took for Abby to catch a cold at preschool! In all fairness, it is possible she caught it at the "Kids Cabin" at the gym since she didn't start feeling sick until the weekend, but I still blame preschool. She already had to miss a day of school because of it. I really hope the babies don't get it too!


Damon went back to work yesterday, so we're trying to find our groove without him. So far, it hasn't been too bad. Jessica's been a huge help at night. I swear she's the Baby Whisperer! She somehow manages to get them right back to sleep after a middle-of-the-night changing/feeding. Damon and I really struggle with that because they seem to wake up the second we lay them back down. Cora has also recently gone from our mellow child to the screamer in the middle of the night. The last couple nights that Jessica's been sleeping with me instead of Damon, though, she's hardly fussed!

Today, we got brave and decided to go to lunch then Target. Lunch was a little harried because they both got fussy. I ended up having to eat while holding Emma. Target, on the other hand, went very smoothly. The babies LOVE Target! Ok, they love riding in the cart, but still... As long as I kept the cart moving, they were happy.

It's definitely more important to have them sleep through Target than sleep through the night. If you are like me, you can probably live without a lot of sleep, but living without Target is out of the question. Glad you are even making it to Target. I wasn't that brave with ONE baby and one preschooler. Hope Abby gets better soon. Connor has been in school a week and a half, and already he has brought home a cold to Audrey. He went 3 days last year, and we were sick almost the entire school year. I'm hoping this year we've built up an immunity and it won't be so bad.
