Time change, change?

Man this time change is throwing us off!  Combine that with 2 babies who grow and change everyday and I'm all confused.  When do we get up?  When do we nap?  Some people probably think I'm overboard with my "schedule" for the babies but I have to be in order to have any sanity for myself (time to start laundry, dishes, shower for work, etc)!  I'm not one of those mom's who can fly by the seat of my pants when it comes to our daily routine....it's just not practical when you have two babies.  We've got a pretty good schedule going and it works for us and that's all that matters.  Until...we changed times this past weekend and we "sprung" forward.  Most of you would say, great...we all get to sleep a little bit later each morning....well, that's what I thought initally too.   But, that puts us to bed a little bit later too (9pm.. and this mommy needs some mommy time before I crawl into bed at 10 and by the time we clean up, eat dinner and make bottles it IS 10pm) and that on top of I think the babies are trying to eliminate their third nap, which currently is just a 30-45 minute "cat" nap.  This is fine by me because over the past few weeks it's been more of a question and sometime a fight then it's worth!  Will they take it, or won't they, will they cry to be put down because they really aren't that tired? (typically they both lay right down for their naps and put themselves right to sleep)  We'll figure it out, we always do.  Maybe I'll just start waking them around 7 (which was their typical time to get up), "gasp, never wake a sleeping baby you say?!?"  Well, I've done it before and I can do it again...that rule does not apply when you have twins!

I know, I know. I always comment. Can't resist all this cuteness. Love the close ups of their sweet little faces. And their fingers. And their smiles. And their... On and on. :)
