Why do kids get up so early?

That Jeffie sure is cute but at 5:45 am he started to lose a little bit of his cuteness when he decided to start the day! He woke up a couple of times in the night but a paci put back in and cover up with a blankie and he went right back to sleep. The older kids didn't want to nap yesterday (except Ethan) so they finally fall asleep at 4:00 then they didn't want to get up at 5:15 therefore they weren't tired to go to bed at 8:45. At 10 last night they were still awake. I "made" them get up today not too long after Jeffrey so hopefully everyone will nap easily later on.

Reese is obsessed with other kids -- her siblings and any other kid. Jeffrey was making her laugh yesterday and he wasn't really even doing anything other than looking at her. I have to watch him though because he just plows on through so if she is on the floor he will just crawl on top of her. She's tough -- she's been stepped on a couple of times when the kids forgot she was on the floor but I still have to watch closely.

Ethan was up first from nap and Jeffie was already awake. The first time I checked on them Jeffrey was playing with several cars. Then I go in there and Ethan has taken every car away from him. Poor guy! So I gave him some trains and I guess trains are okay with Ethan but Jeffie is not allowed to play with cars -- go figure!
