All three are asleep by 9 p.m. (Maddie still sleeps in the pack-n-play in our bedroom for no reason other than I like her nearby. James and Amelia sleep in their cribs in the nursery.) All three wake up around 5 a.m. for a morning snack, then fall back asleep until 8-8:30. James always wakes up first. Amelia could sleep all morning if I let her.
By 10:30 a.m. all three are back in their cribs or pack-in-play for a morning nap. They typically nap until 12/12:30. Their afternoon nap is 3/3:30 until 5.

-Maddie is gaining weight at the same rate as James and Amelia.
-All three have a great appetite and love eating.
-Maddie had an uneventful cardiologist appointment with no major concerns.
-We go everywhere using the quad stroller with relative ease.
