Baby Steps

Ben went to some tech meeting tonight and I was left alone to figure out how to manage the night time routine by myself. To be honest, I totally expected him to come home to pure chaos. This expectation was based on the fact that the evenings over the last week have been nothing but chaos- and he has been here. To sum things up, Noah has just gotten over his first stomach bug (and we're not talking spit-up anymore, this was the real deal) and Jude has been requiring HOURS of rocking/walking/shushing starting around 5 in the evening.
Somehow though, I am sitting here without a baby in my lap, typing this post! Noah was bathed and in bed on time (7:30)! Jude sat in the swing while I did that and did not fuss! Then, Jude fell asleep after only 20 minutes of rocking and allowed me lay him down without waking! Yes, I know there are bigger accomplishments that may be more worthy of so many exclamation points in one paragraph- but we are taking baby steps in our life right now!
That's all for now- I hear a baby crying.
