Birthday Countdown – Month 5

December 2007

And then, the next thing we knew, it was December!  The holidays were upon us, and the kids were 4 months old.  What an improvement!  M’s family visited for Hannukah and his birthday, and then the preparation began for our first flights with the kids.  The way there went alright, the way home was a disaster.  But, live and learn.  The trip itself was a whirlwind, and difficult when so many wanted to see the kids, but they were still napping frequently and crabby if they didn’t get to do so.  Balancing the needs/wants of each branch of my family tree was difficult, but we made it.  While better than the newborn days, they still weren’t great sleepers. Daniel took nearly all naps in the swing, Rebecca seldom napped for longer than 45 minutes at a stretch, and they were both still swaddled (in very elaborate fashion).

Pretty easy to prop into a sitting position, now.
