a milestone, among other things

kids' room

The boys went to bed by themselves three nights ago for the FIRST. TIME. EVER. They didn’t even attempt to leave their beds. There was a bit of crying and begging from both on the first night, but here we are, three nights later, and you’d think they’d been doing it for years! This is big – no, huge – for us. My husband claims he’ll gain an extra 8-10 hours per week of free time. I know, I know, they should have been doing it long before this. I think we were just so used to our routine, and no one wanted to rock the boat. Sleep is a very precious and fragile thing in this house. The boys share a bedroom and every night we read to them, and then one of us would stay in there until both were asleep. Usually my husband would be the one to stay (this allowed me to rebuild my sanity). He would fall asleep too, though, and not wake up for a couple of hours usually. Now, we still have our reading time, then we tuck them both in, turn on some music, check on them a couple of times, and (sigh) enjoy the silence.

The next milestone (that I know of) in our household will be Fred’s 3rd birthday. Every year I fret over what to do for the boys’ birthdays. I always want to make them some things, even though I know I am the one most excited about those presents. I’ll be sharing some of them with you as I make them. But before I start Fred’s things, I need to finish up start sewing some things for my sweet little niece, Avery. The only thing I actually have done so far is make this Kidlet wall pocket for her room, designed by JC Handmade. You can find her great tutorial here.
