Before my parents left we started "schedule bootcamp" where we changed their eating times and began training the babies to be on the 'eat, play, sleep' cycle. The first few days were rough, but it has slowly gotten better. The nights have been much more peaceful; they still have their moments of course, but go down easier and stay asleep longer. We're still eating every 4 hours because Levi and Allison can't go any longer than that, but we stimulate them as little as possible at 10pm and 2am. All the babies have been enjoying our morning walks- I take the 6 seater stroller and Maggie around the neighborhood. We do get some double takes!
Another schedule we've been working on is the volunteer calendar. I'll admit I was anxious about enough people signing up, or coming once and never returning. I can't believe how our friends, family, and neighbors have stepped up! It's only been a couple weeks, but we've had plenty of help (and food!) and I've been able to catch up with some old friends and make some new friends too. Saying thank you does not do these people justice- especially the ones who come everyday and even spend the night!
