Sleep Improvements and Schedule Changes

Luckily the girls have been sleeping a little better lately. Today Kayley slept until 7:30 and Olivia, who had been waking between 6:00 and 6:30, slept until 8:00! Yay! Kayley still wakes up just about every night sometime between 10:30 and 1:00 but goes right back to sleep when I rock her. Yesterday and the day before they slept until 7:00 so I'm thinking we're back on track. I wonder if they'll even start sleeping until 7:30 or 8:00 consistently which will push back lunch and nap an hour or so. As it is, we can't leave the house until at least 3:00, if not 3:30 or 4:00, unless we do errands in the morning after breakfast but: a) I haven't showered yet (I usually shower during naptime or sometimes after breakfast with them in a pack and play) and b) by the time we're done with breakfast and ready to go we only have like a 1.5 hour window before we have to be home to squeeze lunch in before naptime. I think that on days I have errands to do I'll have to get up before they do and get my shower out of the way so that we can do our running around in the morning as opposed to after their nap.

Anyway, the girls turned 13 months last Saturday. Olivia is finally walking now (I say "finally" only because Kayley has been for 2 months). They love to play outside now and walk all over the driveway and alley and play in the rocks that line our neighbor's fence. They got a wagon for their birthday and love being pulled around in that. If only the weather would warm up so we could be outside more and start taking them to the park in their wagon. Also, I'm dying to walk to Starbucks with them in the stroller one of these mornings after their breakfast but it''s just been too darn cold and rainy (or snowy, even! Hello! It's late March!). I really can't wait for spring.
