I find trying to have a shower one of the most frustrating things because I am home on my own during the day. Sometimes it can be lunchtime before I am convinced Ryan is sound asleep and I can make my dash for the shower. Nush you are very lucky with Ella sleeping that long. Ryan tends to go from 6pm till 1am but the 9 till 5 sounds alot better to me cause i find myself in bed by 7.30pm now.
Ryan is still coming along in leaps and bounds. He had his needles this morning which wasn't as bad as i'd feared. He has also gone from the 50th percentile (at birth) to the 75th percentile in length and the 10th percentile to the 50th percentile in his head circumference which explains where all the weight he has been gaining has gone.
Keep enjoying your bubs and take care
