No Night Nanny!

What am I going to do without her?? She has been at my house 10 hours a night for 5 months!! We finally weaned the night bottles last week and the babies are sleeping through the night. It took a week for them to get the hang of it... Every night we had someone protesting... But now I have had a full nights sleep for 3 nights in a row. Woo-Hoo!!! (Um, why don't I feel more rested??)

So our sweet Melissa no longer needs to come anymore and I am SO sad! She is coming for 2 more weeks during the daytime, but then I am on my own... I tried to convince Stephen to let me keep her full time during the days, but "tough times are coming" and we are going to be in save mode soon. (Stephen even threw down the B word... Budget. Shudder.)

Baby Update: All girls have two teeth, the boys are bears waiting for theirs. Everyone so close to crawling. Luke, Mitchell, Ivy are 15-ish pounds and Sidney and Brie are 12-ish pounds.

Melissa & Babies (6 months here)


  1. How sad..I'm sure you've made a forever friend though!!
    Yeah for sleep though!!!

  2. They are all so beautiful! Horray for rest-filled nights!! Hopefully you'll filled rested soon as well!

  3. Awww, a bittersweet time! Hey I know a good pediatric dentist and I just happen to be quite in tune with one of the hygienists when it comes time....LOL

    The restfulness...well, let's see, my oldest is 14, the youngest is pushing 10...and well...hmmm...not sure how rested I feel. LOL It is just a different rest!

  4. The "B" word? Dave Ramsey would be so proud!

  5. Aww, this is so sweet. I've had a great time with yall and am going to miss not getting to see yall every day. I'm so proud of the babies for sleeping so well!

    I like that picture! Ivy looks like she is getting squished though hehe.
