The girls are doing well, though I think Katie might be getting another cold. She's very sneezy and congested. There's been some debate over whether she's teething or not also....she seems to me to show a lot of the signs. She loves to chew on your finger or the pacifier, she's always chewing on her fist, she's been a bit fussy, her cheeks are frequently red, and she's pretty drooly.
My mother says it's impossible because she's way too young. My mother in law says it's definitely possible and PJ had his first tooth at 3 months... so who knows.
Both girls have been SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT. Last night Charlotte slept from 10:30 pm to 6:30 am!!!! It's amazing. Of course tonight they've been unhappy messes but that's a whole other story.
It seems, whenever anyone else watches them for a significant period of time, they are all out of sorts when we get home. This is not a criticism, it happens no matter who else watches them. My theory is that everyone loves them so much, they spend all day holding them and playing with them and talking to them, and the girls don't get enough sleep and get way overtired and overstimulated. Then we come home and there's hell to pay.
We went in to NYC for a taping of the John Edward show today (that's John Edward the psychic, not the Democrat). It was really interesting and I'm very glad I went, but we didn't get a reading. I sort of expected we wouldn't. My mom kept saying, maybe it was just too soon. I, of course really wanted to hear from Jack, or someone saying they had Jack with them and he was okay. But, even though that didn't happen, I still left feeling even more confident that Jack is with us, and he's alright.
Anyway, my mother in law watched the girls all day and they were berserk tonight. SO fussy and unhappy and cranky and wouldn't eat, wouldn't sleep. Right now Katie is half crying in her swing, she's just so overtired. It's been a long night already and it's not even midnight. To top it off, PJ has a stomach virus (you do NOT want to know the details of that, I honestly wish he'd spared me some of them... LOL). So I do not want him anywhere near the girls. My sister in law stayed until almost 11 pm and helped me, thank god, but now I'm on my own. Yikes.
The point of this entry was to say how great the girls are doing, Charlotte's reflux seemed better, they've been sleeping so great.... and of course, as is always the case with babies, it's already started to go to hell... :) Hopefully tomorrow will be better....... even if it is Wednesday.
