Thank you all for your comments and well wishes regarding the girls' sleeping issues. Last night, we moved the gate to Em's doorway and Rich stayed with Anna until she fell asleep, which was about ten minutes. We are too cheap to go out and purchase another gate, especially knowing that we may not need it for that long, but my sister-in-law believes that she has one that is not being used that she can pass along to us.
Em was better behaved, especially with gate, but did not fall asleep until 9:45ish last night. She told me a few times that her throat hurt. Tonight, she was asleep around 8:00. Thank. Goodness. And all three stayed in their beds all night last night. Thank. Goodness. I did have to run into Allie's room twice as she still has a bad stuffy nose and woke up coughing.
I took these pictures last week after the girls dropped their nap and then Em and Allie both proceeded to fall asleep on the couch.
I could not stop taking pictures of Emily. That is her in the pink shirt.
She was too cute for words.
I don't know how that could be comfortable either.
And then there was Allie.
It doesn't get any cuter than this.
And what was Anna doing?
Eating crackers with peanut butter while watching Sesame Street.
