Rough Night

Last night was rough. Both boys slept fitfully from midnight to three, and Sydney woke up at 1:30. Braden finally went to sleep after the three o'clock feeding, but Brock was awake until the seven o'clock feeding. If they keep doing this, I am not sure I am going to make it. I require sleep. Period. I do not function happily if I don't get sleep. I am normally pretty calm and patient, but all bets are off if I don't get sleep. Did I mention I didn't get much sleep? I do have a wonderful friend named Michelle who voluntarily came over this morning so I could take Sydney to school and then get some sleep while she cared for the boys for a few hours. This was a gift straight from God. He must have known I would require this today and set it up for me last Friday. Again, Michelle, HUGE thank you to you and many blessings on you. You are the best!
My dad arrives tonight just in time to help me out this week. This will be a big help because Tony is working all day tomorrow and then going out of town until Saturday night. But then he is taking off the next three weeks! What a wonderful time this will be for our family to get to spend together bonding and surviving. It is our plan (and hopefully the pediatrician's) to get the boys on a schedule that will have them sleeping twelve hours at night by twelve weeks old and having both of us at home to get them there will be awesome. We can just take turns sleeping and staying up with the boys.
A big thank you to Lori for the blog cuteness info. I hope you all like the spiffy new look for my blog. If it changes again, it's just because this website has so many cute options!
