Halloween marked the babies three-month birthday. In some ways it seems like it has gone so fast, and in other ways the pregnancy seems like it was ages ago. All of the babies continue to do amazingly well. Three are over ten pounds now--Kassidy, Ryder and Rustin. Kaydence is around 9 lbs and Kyndall finally broke 8 lbs yesterday. They have finally started to sleep for some pretty good stretches at night (by pretty good, I mean 4-5 hours). Because of the time change, they actually went to bed early last night, around 9:15 pm, and it was great!!! We sent home our volunteer and watched this weeks episode of "The Office". It was wonderful to be able to sit down (no bouncing, pacing or swaying!) and watch a TV show without pausing it every couple of minutes to attend to fussy babies! I am hoping that we can keep the babies on this sleeping schedule. We have been following a good bedtime routine this week and rubbing them down with lavendar lotion before bed, which I think has helped.
For Halloween, we didn't take the babies out, so we didn't get them actual costumes, but the Halloween sleepers with the "Boo" accross the bum were too cute to pass up! Riley and Kaiya dressed as Harry Potter and Cinderella and brought home way too much candy.
