Well, that interminable night of the last post seemed to have been a last gasp of something (not to mention, Eleanor's first tooth showed up very shortly thereafter - related? I think so). Sleeping has been SO much better across the board, resulting in very happy babies and parents.
I'm enjoying these days so much. Eleanor is on the verge of crawling, and generally pretty mobile, and Steven is pretty good at getting to what he wants, so they spend most of their time playing together, or grinning at each other while they play and "read" books, or holding hands while they eat breakfast.
I'd say our kitchen isn't always such a disaster, but that would be a lie.
I CAN say that the floor looks much nicer now.
They're so delightful. When they're happy, they grin so hard it seems like it should hurt - Steven's such a happy boy, it's a little tricky to get him to bed... if he's almost asleep, and we have to go in for her, we can't catch his eye or he'll wake himself up to smile and laugh.
