Dear Babies.....PLEASE TAKE A NAP!!!

Oh man...things are getting insane around the house! The girls are refusing to sleep for anymore than a half a hour two times a day. This obviously is making for extremely cranky babies by the time I get home from work! They are just exhausted. It sucks. I want awake fun babies when I get them! Not crazy cranky tired babies! For the past week they have been going to bed at around 6:30-7:00 every night. They used to go to bed at 9, now that they are going to bed earlier they are trying to get up at 4 or 5 in the morning for the day. And that just isn't going to happen in my house!

Last night was horrible! Gillian got up at 2 to eat, I fed her and put her back down, then at 4 Finley woke up screaming like a banshee (which she never does) and she wolfed down a bottle then went back to bed, then at about 4:30 Gillian started whining, it wasn't a "I'm hungry" whine either, it was a "lets get up and play" whine! I got up and stuck her pacifier back in her mouth and turned on her projector mobile and hoped she would just fall such luck. So from 4:30-6:00 I tried to get her to go back to bed, finally I asked Gary to go get her and bring her in to bed with me hoping that would help but instead she just flailed like a maniac in bed with me. So that was my morning. Such fun. These kids better start taking naps during the day.

Hi Erin,
I read your blog because I also have twins(b/g) that I birthed on Dec. 11th 2009. About the nap sucks doesn't it? I thought my babies were sick before I realized that they were just tired. But I have good news! I've found that if I put them in the swing at they're most tired time, they will sleep longer and therefore be happy, smiley, fun to be around babies.
Hope this works for you as well.
