How I've Missed You, Sleep

I'm so tempting the sleep gods by posting this, but I had to make of record of this. I put the babies to bed at 6:30 last night, Emma woke at 11, then they both slept until 6. We fed them and put them back down hoping they'd go back to sleep, but not really expecting to. They slept until EIGHT!

Emma's been sleeping better now. She typically wakes twice a night around 12 and 5, but Cora has been waking around 6:15, so that 5am wake-up has been tough on both of us since I get her up too. I can let her sleep an extra half hour without it messing up our schedule, but they'll be up at different times throughout the day if I let her go longer than that. Some nights, she'll wake around 2 instead then they both wake at the same time in the morning. I'll take it! It's so much better than the every hour waking she was doing a few weeks ago.

Tired of Winter

Abby has been wearing dresses and bathing suits around the house all week. She is so ready for warm weather!

7 Months

Picture-heavy to distract you! Today was a big day for the babies. Cora finally decided to sit for minutes at a time, and Emma rolled halfway across the room! Usually, it's the other way around: Cora's typically army crawling every where, and Emma's content to sit. I'll be back with a proper 7-month update (if I remember), but here are some of my favorite recent pictures in case you don't see the pictures I've uploaded to flickr (check the badge in the left sidebar periodically).

Cora Sitting. I got the shirt at The Children's Place outlet for $1 last summer. I would've like to get it for Abby, but they only had one in the babies' future size. It cracks me up to see Cora in it! It doesn't take much to make me laugh apparently. It's hard to see the whole shirt, but it says "I heart being a BIG sister."
Cora's finally sitting!

Why we call her Cheeks! They're so smoochable

Cora's gotten much better moving around since

Can't leave the biggest sister out. I love this one. Abby's clearly enjoying herself so much!
