Two Milestones, Maybe

Both our kids have possibly hit major milestones, although as I write the jury is still out if they're there.  Aaron took solid foods for the first time this afternoon, and not coincidentally reeled off a two-hour nap in the middle of the day, an unheard of length for him.  We're hoping solids twice a day will help him sate his belly enough to sleep longer than three hours at a time at night and to not unleash his ear-piercing scream.

As for Jada, we disassembled her crib and moved it up to the third floor in preparation for it being a part of Aaron's new room.  So we've put a temp mattress on her floor and called it her "big girl bed."  She tested it for the first time at this afternoon's nap, and like a new car owner, she kicked all the tires for over an hour before settling in to sleep.  But tonight, she had much more difficulty getting comfortable - she's a creature of routine, and not having the familiar walls of her crib must have been awfully unsettling.  Amy had to go into her room several times this evening to assure her before she finally got quiet.

So both our kids are slogging through new things, and hopefully they'll soon be on the other side and able to sleep sounder and longer.  Their parents pray that day comes sooner rather than later.
