Second, Ethan has slept the past 2 nights in his own room. This is HUGE for me. I was initially concerned about Mallory waking up when he wakes up, but with her radio and her humidifier going, his cries are drowned out. Ethan is still waking up about 3am and I'm hoping that his body will get used to that missed feeding. Confession: I am putting a few teaspoons of rice cereal in a bottle for him at 11pm. I figured it would make his belly a little fuller. He's not really used to sucking on a bottle, but I'm REALLY ready for him to start a 6-8hr stretch (now that he's 3 months today!!!) and will try just about anything.
I'm am a bit sad today because it's hitting me that my kids are growing up so quickly. It's an inevitable reality. Time is fleeting. And this phase of their lives (newborn and toddler) are the shortest. I love 'em.
