Time Change for the Better?

I figured that the time change would mess the kids up for a couple of days, then they would adjust and go back to their normal sleep and wake-up times. That doesn't really seem to be the case, especially for Roanen. He usually doesn't wake up until at least 7:15 or 7:30 now, which I can definitely deal with. Josey also doesn't wake up until well after Russ has gotten up too. As for bedtime, if Josey doesn't sleep past 4:00 in the afternoon he's good for an 8:00 bedtime (which usually doesn't happen), but Roanen definitely won't go down at 7:00 anymore. More like 8:30 or 9:00, but he hasn't been waking up more than once, and has slept right through about half of the nights in the past week. The one day he had only one nap I tried to put him down at 7:45 because he was tired and he screamed and fussed for an hour, then woke up about 5 times and wouldn't stay asleep unless I was in bed with him. So we've had to make adjustments, but I don't mind because I'm sleeping way better than I was a month ago.

Yay to better sleep! I hope it only gets better as it gets lighter later in the evening as well. They'll both actually sleep better as the weather gets nicer and they wear themselves out playing outside. We'll cross our fingers that the bugs won't be as bad at this house as they were at the old place.
