First Night

Not swaddled! IT WAS SO GOOD!

We put them in their crib about 9:20pm and they both of course moved around a whole bunch but Brandon found his thumb and fell asleep and John just needed a little extra cuddling and fell asleep. Around 12:45am Brandon woke up and needed to be held for about 10-20 minutes (not too bad) and John was still asleep until I accidentally woke him up and all I needed to do was put my hand on him and he calmed down and fell back asleep... get this.... they slept till 3:30am! WOW!!
We then woke them again at 6am per our schedule and of course they only ate about an ounce to two ounces then fell asleep again! John slept til 7:15am... his norm and Brandon slept till 8am! Pretty great first night of not swaddling. They seem to really like being free!
