Babes in Dreamland
Thanks for all your comments/compliments on the co-bedding post. Many of you have told me how much you loved the picture of Brooks and Clark doing the synchronized thumb sucking. I’ll answer a few FAQs that we’ve gotten from the recent posting….
1. Do the twins suck their thumbs often?
Yes, Clark and Brooks both suck their thumbs ALL the time. They even try to suck their thumbs and the bottle at the SAME time quite often. I know it’s a terrible habit to break, but when you have 4 babies, if 2 of them learn to self-soothe by thumb sucking – yippee! Saves Brad or I a trip out of our cozy bed to find a pacifier in the dark for a crying baby in the middle of the night. We’ll worry about breaking habits later, anyone know of a good orthodontist? HA!
2. Does anyone else suck their thumbs or take a pacifier?
Isaac is our only one who likes a pacifier much. He gets one when he goes to bed for the night and sometimes at church to keep his delightful squealing muffled a bit. Henry (and really all of them) suck their fingers and hands a lot, but I think that’s do to all these TEETH! Clark has one through his gum and one on the way and it looks like Isaac’s are just under the surface! Unreal! And in birth order, how about that? Official Tooth Count: 5
3. Do you own four cribs?
Yes, we do own 4 cribs, just have not put them up for space issues, and we have not bought the mattresses yet.
4. What are they wearing?
So glad you asked – one of my FAVORITE baby products out there. Perfect Shower Gift! They are called Sleepsacks. A bit pricey, but money well spent. These are made by Halo. They zip from top to bottom (so the zipper is at their feet instead of in their face) and are basically a wearable blanket that you don’t have to worry about coming off in the middle of the night and waking them up. Also reduces the risks of SIDS. Genius!
AND……… because it just continues to be sooooooo precious. I had to post ONE more video of our sweet boys in their cribs. This one is so sweet it about brings me to tears. Makes me melt!
I will be posting some great cereal pictures soon – stay tuned, same great channel.
Until then, sweet dreams from Henry, Brooks, Clark, Isaac, Jen and Brad
