First, a paci update: I don't think the boys have any memory of ever being attached to the paci. As a matter of fact, after the initial falling asleep later and waking up earlier phase, the boys have settled into a nice sleeping pattern which includes mostly sleeping 12 hours all the way through the night almost every night. Woo Hoo!!! (okay, I hope I didn't just jinx things)
Second, the school/daycare update: The boys were getting better day by day with a little help from their teddy bears. As of yesterday they stopped crying when we pick them up and they also stayed the entire 3 hours. They still cry at drop off, but stop soon after we leave. Today they were filming at the daycare so they had to wear their uniforms AND go without the comfort of their furry friends... Alex asked for his "beir" once, and that was that. They cried at drop off, but not pick up, and stayed the entire time again. Monday's seem to be a little more problematic since they "fall out" of the routine over the weekend, but, overall, things are good. Woo!!! Hoo!!!
And finally, the what else have we been up to update: Not too much really. We lost internet and phone service for a couple days and it was a strange and very disconnected feeling. We thought about venturing out for a Wandering Wednesday, but we couldn't do our "research" without the internet. So, we went to Loro Parque again and had a great time. Otherwise, it's just been hanging out around the house or running errands (and, of course, taking pictures) Here are a few for your enjoyment...
In a park full of animals, they LOVED the Rolly Polly best!
