Silent as a Stone

I knew my daughters would be different, but I had no clue they would be so different (yet so much the same if that makes sense).

One of the biggest differences in my girls is their sleeping.

Turtle sleeps like a rock.

So much so that I often forget she's in the same room with me (okay, maybe not forget but you get my point, right?).

Half the time she's so quiet that I "accidentally" brush her face or touch her body when I'm pulling the blanket up over her so she moves.

Roo is a crazy, restless sleeper. She tosses and turns, talks in her sleep and often sits up in bed, only to flop back down in the middle of the night.

Turtle is also way better a sleeper than Miss Roo (I think I've mentioned this before). Turtle will sleep for 6 hours straight when Roo would pop up like a turkey timer every two hours.

And I thank my lucky stars for this fact.

I mean, come on, could you imagine running after two children all day long (with one who doesn't nap but is just go go go all day?) while yourself is only running on three hours sleep?

Yeah, neither could I.

Happy Memorial Day!!!

Shey was definitely a better sleeper than Peyton. I wonder if it's the second child thing?
