To sleep, perchance to dream...

What does it really mean to "sleep like a baby"? Well, here's what it looks like:

Awwww, melts my heart to see my babies in dreamland! Unfortunately, Kira rarely goes to sleep without a fight, and Calvin is up every couple of hours throughout the night. *sigh!* As a result, I'm often feeling in a zombie-like state, and haven't slept more than 4 hours straight since Calvin was born. I'm looking forward to brighter days when, hopefully both kids will be sleeping through the night.

We had an awful time with Kira's sleep from the time she was born, and we approached her sleep in all the wrong ways. As a result, we're working hard at establishing a good bedtime routine for Calvin. So far so good (he consistently naps at regular intervals and is down for the night sometime between 8pm to 9pm), except that he wakes frequently at night. Kira sometimes wakes up at night to pee on the toilet, but that's a welcome step in her development. She still fights us at bedtime unless we exhaust her with lots of running around and outdoor time. Both kids come into our bed around 6 or 7am for morning cuddles, and Kira almost always squirms out of bed to watch cartoons until Mommy and Daddy are ready to start their days. :)

Although I'm dying for a full night's sleep, I also wouldn't trade these times for the world because once they're gone, they're gone!
