Mooooooo!

or, the magic of milk....

The last two nights the girls got bottles with 8oz of cow's milk before bed.

The last two nights I got 7 hours of straight sleep.

Coincidence?

Who cares, I'm not messing with a good thing. If this keeps up I may be able to leave the house in matching shoes without having to triple check that I even have feet. It may also mean that they are effectively weaned.

I think I'm supposed to feel sad about that or nostalgic or something. Mostly I feel relieved. Although the boobies are complaining today and I did nurse C a few minutes just before bed to help her relax. (C has relaxing issues. let's just say she has two modes: insane and unconscious) But after all the trials and tribulations we had here with breast feeding, I'm glad we made it a year and even more happy to be (almost) done.

Now that I've said that they'll be up 3x tonight I'm sure.

So glad that they are transitioning to the cow well! And really happy for you on the sleep front. Of course, mine just both insisted on nursing before nap, even though they are technically down to 2X a day. How will we ever wean at my house?

of course I jinxed myself and C has been up a bunch of times sat and sun night. but Z is sleeping through for the most part. I keep praying she will teach her sister.
