Uninterrupted Sleep

More to come later for today, but I just had to say, here I sit at 8:35am and BOTH Callie and Carly are still sleeping!! They were put in their crib around 10:45 last night and neither woke up last night.  I sure hope this is the beginning of them both sleeping through the night.  Oh how I have missed the nights of uninterrupted sleep!  I'll keep you posted.

My good little babies didn't wake up until about 9:30 this morning!  I am so proud of them!!!  This transition to crib has been so easy - these 2 are just so laid back. SO different from Mickey who lived by her routine of sleeping with Mommy and HAD to be touching me!  :-)  I love coming in to these cute little faces.  ♥

So, today I worked on tackling Haley and Mickey's bedroom.  Poor Haley Bug - the room is pretty much taken over by Mickey!  But, there is a plan in the future for Haley to have her own room again that she can keep nice and have some privacy.  Anyway - it was a DISASTER.  I worked mostly on cleaning up the area around the closets today and just getting it in semi good looking shape because Mom Mom (Mike's mom), his little brother and sister (8 year old twin boy and girl) and stepdad are coming in town for their spring break tomorrow!  We are SO excited to see them and spend some time with them.  Anyway, the room was a complete eyesore, so I wanted to make it look a little more presentable.  These closets need some serious help in the organization department, but hey, at least it's clean now!  The shoes are completely out of control!  But the organization will come on another day.  Here are the before and afters - gosh the pile of toys in front of the closet was ridiculous!!!

Carly was being a little helper.  ♥

Today we got 3 things delivered too.  The second crib mattress so we can get the second crib up in the babies' room and Carly and Callie's new big girl car seats!  I LOVE THEM!  We got the Britax Marathon 70 in Allison print and they are so cute.  They are super easy to put in the car and easy to adjust.  Super thrilled! I think they look pretty cute in them too (even if the lighting is crappy since it was dark already!)  ♥

Well, Mom Mom is already on her way, driving through the night.  We can't wait for them to arrive in the morning! It's been almost 3 years since we saw Kayla and Cameron (Mike's little brother and sister) and Steve, his stepdad.  We are going to be going up to Maryland with them to visit some family, so I will probably miss a few days.  We are so looking forward to seeing everyone though - just can't say it enough!

Oh, and I almost forgot another great thing about today!  The guys from R.S. Andrews came to start installing the new heating/AC unit!  They will be done tomorrow.  It will sure be nice to get rid of these electricity sucking space heaters!  :-)
