so the two munchkins have been sharing a room the past three night and it's going pretty well, i'd say. i don't think either of them have been asleep before 9pm but since they've had colds and crazy holiday schedules lately, that's not much different than the couple of days before we put them together. i'm sure sophie would be asleep sooner if mae didn't insist on yelling "BABY, WAKE UP!" repeatedly or bounce around on her bed like a crazed hyena to entertain her (and of course soph loves it. the giggles coming out of their room are seriously cute to the power of ten). but neither seem to mind when the other wakes in the middle of the night, which is one thing i was worried about, and mae hasn't objected if i come in and take sophie out of the room for 20 minutes when she's grizzling, although she has been getting some extra bedtime stories due to the amount of times i had to go into their room for one or the other before they fall asleep. anyway, i'm feeling optimistic about the move and think that once life gets a bit more back to normal and they are used to being put down together, they'll fall sleep easier. and now i can get down to the huge task of sorting out a room that has been a bit of a dumping ground for the past six months...
