Our son has made some great strides the last 3 nights, and he is about to reach a monumental accomplishment. He has made it through the last 3 nights without having any accidents, and if he goes for 2 more, he will graduate to big boy pants, YEAH! He has done this all on his own, and he is very proud of himself (as are we). He is the last one to make the transition, so once he is done, we can say bye bye to pull ups in the house! Happy Days are almost here!

OK, so I am starting to feel like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day. It was another early morning for me as I sprinted down the hallway into the girls’ room to try and quiet Maris down. She was sitting up in her bed, crying and screaming for Mommy. She woke her sister up, who was asleep in the next bed (had she not, I would have been worried that Lillian may have a hearing problem, because Maris sounds like a plane taking off, but I digress). I guess by now it is to be expected that Lillian would be woken up, but I was really trying to get to her before she woke up Wilson. Mission accomplished, I had quited her before she was able to wake up the ENTIRE house.
I just do not know what is going on here, we have tried putting them to bed later in hopes that they would sleep in (by the way, does not work). We have even tried putting them to bed earlier thinking that maybe they are not getting enough sleep (this does not work either). I guess we should come to grips with the fact that this is the time that she is going to get up (at least for now until I can figure something else out or she just outgrows it).
In other news, I took the kids to see Santa on Saturday. This was the second time in their life that they have physically seen him and let me tell you it was a much better experience than last year! Last year they cried the whole time, this time, they kept telling Santa what they wanted for Christmas. All in all, they enjoyed it, but we will most likely take them again since the pictures I took did not turn out as well as I would have liked (yes, we have become one of those families that pimps out the kid pictures when we can, we are going to use them for Christmas cards).
