HOUSTON: We have sleep

I am happy to report that things are coming together in Infantland. Little Bro is becoming quite a team player.

We are easily up to four hour stretches of sleep at night and we enjoyed a fluke last Friday. It snowed in Houston and the baby slept through the night for the first time. Just once, but an early Christmas gift all the same. A gift of hope.

I'm starting to feel human again. And I'm rested enough to enjoy delightful moments with a precious baby. Is there anything more sweet in the world than those first few smiles and soft coos or the way they crumble in your arms and fall asleep? Entirely trusting.

Big Brother is so protective and loving. I am getting to know a whole new side of him, as well. This is going to be my best Christmas ever. I'm looking forward to it as if I was the four year old.

As life settles back into place, I'm missing my blogging. My computer got an STD so I haven't been able to log on in weeks. I had to borrow my brother's laptop to get my "fix." It took a day to go through emails. Maybe I'll get to do a real post this week. My hands are shaking, this feels so good.

human? What's that? Mine are 4 and 9 and I still get woke up in the night...ARGH! Happy to see an update from you though!

Yay! Glad uninterrupted sleep is getting longer :o)

My manager just had twins (a little over a week ago, no kids before these two) and he stopped in yesterday and looked like he was not getting more than 1 hour of sleep at a time. The man looked *tired* but seemed like he was enjoying it, nonetheless!

I'm glad things are settling down a little. And snow in Houston~ I heard! That's cool.

I am sorry I'm so slow to come by and say hi. :) I'm happy to hear that things are settling in for you and your family. You sound so sweet when you talk about your boys....I wish I sounded that sweet. I need to remember to try and sound like that. If I try and sound that way...maybe I'll start feeling all sweet to them again. Ha!

If we don't hear from you before, have a wonderful Christmas.

Hi there, just wanted to stop by and say hello. Was thinking of you and wondering how your Christmas was with two little ones this year.

You left a comment on my blog a few months ago about where I got the letters that I hung in my daughters nursery. I found it the other day and remembered you had asked about it. Here is the link:

Congratulations on your beautiful new baby boy!
