Happy Monday...

This past weekend was a somewhat good one for the kids, although they both can get fussy at the drop of a hat. Makenna will have an occasional tantrum, but I think we've got her figured out. Her outbursts don't last as long as they used to, probably because we've stopped reacting to them. Once she sees that we've stopped paying attention, the fussiness usually stops and then she's back to normal. She's been a lot of fun now that she's become extremely mobile. Now when she wakes up from her naps, she likes to walk down the hallway rather than being carried! What a relief because she was starting to get really heavy!
Isaiah, on the other hand, still has us puzzled. He's still doing the thing where he'll be sound asleep and then he'll startle himself, which then escalates into a fit of crying. Lately he's been extra gassy, so that just tells us that most of his fussiness is obviously due to miscomfort. He did, however, sleep through the night for the first time this weekend-a full 7 hours! What a relief for us! Of course that's not to say he'll do it all the time, but at least we know he's headed that way. The interesting thing is that he pulled his all-nighter at the same time that Makenna did, which was at the end of their 7th week. Coincidental? I think not!
