Twin Adventures

Twin girls now rule the house.

You Think You’ve Got it…

on April 24, 2012

….and then it all falls apart.

You think, “Have I learnt nothing over the last ten-and-a-half months?!”

Last night was a night like any other. Bedtime routine went smoothly. Both girls were bathed, clothed, fed, and in their beds by eight o’clock. Anton and I retired to the living room to watch a movie. Not a peep from the girls all evening. 11:30 rolls around and Shula wakes up. Soother… check, clean diaper… check, small bottle… check, Orajel and Tylenol… check. I swear we hit every single mark in the book! Nothing worked for our poor baby. After listening to her cry for a while, I decided to lay down with her on the couch. That didn’t help either. She couldn’t seem to get comfortable. Laying together didn’t work, laying on her own didn’t work. She eventually fell asleep in her rocking chair… at 2:30! Ugh.

I like to think this doesn’t happen very often; usually I’ve got it together, a “Supermom” if you will, but last night I felt helpless and little lost.

    It happens around that age. Babies are usually cranky and miserable and off their routine for a bit while they’re processing something new.

    Watch in the next couple days and see if she does something new – or it could just be growing pains… :p That’s normal for around that age too 🙂

      Yeah, we are gonna go with growing pains plus teething pains. On a plus side; last night went great. Only had to wake up once to retrieve a soother. Thanks for the support Jane. It’s always nice to hear from someone who’s been through it!
