8 Months

Today the girls are 8 months old! I can't believe it. It goes so fast. Kayley has started pulling up on furniture but Olivia still has yet to assume all fours.

Routine-wise, they have started sleeping later, until between 7:40 and 8:00. Great on one hand, but it pushes morning nap time back so late that Kayley often skips her afternoon nap and Olivia takes it so late that she ends up staying up until 9:30 or 10:00. It's too early for them to have only one nap a day (mommy needs a break!)! I'm wondering if I may need to started getting them up at 7:00, but I'm just not sure I want to mess with their natural body clock, so I'll give it a few more days and see how it goes.

The last week or so has been pretty tough as the girls suffered from their second cold (mom, too). One day in particular Olivia was very demanding of my time and attention, causing me to neglect Kayley somewhat. I felt horrible. That's one of the hardest things about having twins. You just do the best you can. Anyway, after a few sleepless nights (ah...memories...) everyone's doing much better. I'm just wondering how many more colds we'll have to suffer through before spring. I used to get one cold a season, two at the most. This year I've had two so far and it's only October! And they don't even go to daycare! We've actually been pretty lucky, though, because all they've had is two colds--no ear infections or anything worse--and while they were unpleasant they weren't horrible.
