Twenty-Eight Weeks Old

On January 8th we put the babies in their nursery in separate cribs for the first time. While I did a HAPPY DANCE that Mr. Howard and I got our room back (we slept with them in our room for the first six-months - which is also what we did with Connor), I was heartbroken to put them in separate cribs. I asked for advice from my Mothers of Multiples group, though, and almost unanimously they said that one of the reasons they were having trouble sleeping might be because they were still sharing a crib. And what do you know? The very first night we separated them, they almost slept the whole night through.

The funny story about this was that Mr. Howard told me he was going to be posting our huge accomplishment on facebook (his actual post was: The babies are spending their first night in the nursery and the wife and I have our bedroom to ourselves! What will we do with the silence?!?) and he whispered it to me. I whispered back something about how funny it was. And THEN we both realized we were WHISPERING FOR NO REASON. Haha! We had no babies in our bedroom, but we are so conditioned to whisper in our room at night.
I'll have you know that this week we took EXACTLY two photos (the one above and the one below). No outtakes this week! That is huge!!! 
Aiden is so trying to use his tummy muscles to pull himself up. He's nowhere near accomplishing it, but it's good he's trying! Isabella's little face is filling out and she's starting to have a more round face. Oh I just adore them soo much!!!!

Good to hear! Ours are still in their rock and play sleepers in our room and we are trying to decide when to take them up to their cribs and when we do if they should sleep together or apart. The sleepers are on an incline so I am a little worried about the flat on the back thing. They sleep all night now and I am not sure I am ready to back track just yet...
