So I would never normally admit to making a mistake about being a mom, cuz I never make them! aha.... BUT i'm not too sure what to do and before I go crazy this week from "thinking" I am going to ask you all for help. First of all it has been one busy thinking week. Seriously I have never thought so much! Is that how you say it? Well this is why, I have been working on my relief society lesson which has kind of been a challenging one because I don't know how to go about teaching it. It's on 'Valiant in the cause of Christ' It's a simple lesson so I might just keep it that way. Anyways, also I have been getting the last touches on my business and ordering some more supplies. I have made some big changes in it so that is why it is taking so long. Sorry. If you didn't get to see my sneak peek post go here. I will tell you what I am going to do though. (I know i'm supposed to be asking for your help but i'll get to that after this, cuz I got sidetracked so just go with it.) Probably tomorrow I will show you my site (I just want to get one more picture on it) and because I am waiting on some supplies and can't really make anything yet, I am going to take some pre-orders, as in 8-10 at the most. Obviously the wait for these will be a while probably like 3-4 weeks since I have to wait for all my last minute stuff to arive and who knows how long it'll take with the shipping. But I can get all the paper and letters ordered in the mean time. I want to get started somewhere. So here's the deal, if you want a name/initial done, let me know AFTER I open the site. So then you can see my samples and get an idea of what I am doing and all the details, so I don't have to go through it all on here. But ya so if you want one done watch for it to be opened within the next day. After I get 10 orders max I won't be taking anymore until all my stuff comes in. So that's my business update. I am hating how long it's taken but I am SO excited to get going!
So.....back to the help. I made a mistake, a big one in my eyes and now I need help to fix it. It's about Jayci and Presley. Since they were born I have been nursing them and I still am. (yay so proud) Probably about 3-4 times a day. BUT my problem is I nurse them right to sleep for bedtime!....I know, I know, SO bad! It just happened! And it was just so much easier! But now during the day for their naps I can wrap them up and place them in bed together and they go to sleep on their own. But it's nightime that is the problem. They have been going to bed at about 7:30 lately, so I nurse them right to sleep (which usually takes 5 minutes) and put them in bed. Then I do the other one. So most of the time they wake up once before we go to bed but the only way to get them back to sleep is to nurse them again. So how do I get them out of the habit of being nursed to sleep? Kelsey (thank you so much) helped me with a book she bought online and I think it would work, but with twins it's harder. It pretty much tells you to sit by the crib for a couple days and then every 3 days move further away. But with two, they say to just move your chair back and forth from each crib every 5 minutes, and ya I didn't like that. It was just a hard concept for twins. So I looked online for books or something for twins and sleeping and the only one I found which I think would be awesome, doesn't come out until JUNE! ha great! So I know most of you don't have twins, but how do I get them off nursing to sleep and then going back to sleep on their own. I have tried letting them cry, but first of all I hate it, and second they cry forever (last night was at least 1/2hr) and I feel so mean. I know there is other ways. Oh also when we go to bed they rarely wake up, they usually sleep right until about 7ish, but when they do wake up I have to once again feed them. I am getting so tired lately, not sure why, but like exhausted! I guess they have been waking up at about 11pm which is right after we try and go to bed and then we are up until after midnight and Kyla is up before 7am. Also the other night she woke up wanting to sleep in our bed, so random. But ya she was freaking out and would only let me tuck her in. I do have awesome help, Dustin will do just as much as I do, he is up everytime they are up. He goes and gets the babies when they wake up, I feed them and put them back to bed. He is the best help. I know your thinking it's because we have twins, but nope he did the same thing with Kyla. Don't I have the best husband! I have talked to so many moms where the husband doesn't do anything at night and I am so grateful mine does. Of course if he is up earlier or really tired I do it so he can sleep. Also he changes just as many diapers as I do (without asking!) and gets them dressed, and feeds them. He NEVER complains. He was the exact same way with Kyla too. I definately got a winner! I love him. Anyways this is getting long and i'm rambling now. So any help please, and if you want a name done, let me know! I'm excited! (sorry no pictures) next time!
