I'm about a week late on this post as the girls turned 7 months on the 21st. We had a really rough week last week, so I purposely waited to write this when I was in a better mood and had lots of nice things to say about the babies. :) Last week, Eden had an ear infection and then an allergic reaction to the antibiotics. The poor baby felt really crummy and couldn't sleep, hence Mommy and Daddy didn't sleep and felt crummy as well. Lydia was jealous her sister was getting all the attention so she was also pretty fussy and needy. The good news is everyone is feeling much better and we all still love each other!
|One day, I left the room and came back and couldn't find Eden. She rolled clear across the room and hid under the swing!|

Sleep Differences: Lydia sleeps on her belly while Eden sleeps on her back. Eden sleeps with a binkie and Lydia doesn't. (Actually we had a binkie intervention about a month ago because they were becoming a problem. I was getting up multiple times a night to replace their binkies and I'd had enough! I took them away cold turkey. Boy, that was a dark week in our house! Then it finally clicked with Lydia and she sleeps so much better now. Eventually we couldn't deal with all the crying and gave Eden back her binkie. I do think the trial seperation was a good thing for her though because she's much better about not waking up at all hours of the night needing her binkie anymore.) Lydia takes uninterrupted naps while Eden almost always takes a nap intermission about 45 minutes in to the nap. After some soothing from me, she goes back to sleep and finishes her nap. Eden is an early riser while Lydia prefers to sleep in. Lydia sleeps the whole night, while Eden usually wakes once a night. Overall, Lydia is a better sleeper unless something disturbs her and wakes her up. If that happens nothing really helps to soothe her and she just screams.
Food: The girls are still big fans of solid food. They definitely prefer our food than baby food. For instance if we're eating Mexican food, the girls would much rather eat beans, rice, and guacamole than their jarred food. What can I say, they're foodies. It can be a bit annoying to try to eat with them shrieking at you because you're not feeding them fast enough.
