When She Doesn’t Sleep…

I call her my monster.  I know, I know.  Enough with the pictures in the exersaucer already.  But seriously, I couldn’t help myself.  The fingers, the shy smile and the shirtless torso?  Too much for me.  Today was a little crazy nap-wise.  Yesterday, I got Avery ready for her morning nap around 10.  Put her down in her crib fully awake and closed the door.  She babbled for a while and fell asleep… for two hours.  I thought, Eureka!  I’ve been doing this wrong all along.  I think it was a one time deal.  It hasn’t happened a second time.

There’s always a little something to tweak.  I’m very much looking forward to having our game down.  When does that happen?  Around 1?  9 or 10 months?  I’d say that’s forever from now but I know better than that.   It’s hard to not be frustrated by not being able to get her down for a good nap.  I got all wound up in the middle of the day but finally concluded that since she was fine and went to bed ok that it’s just not that big of a deal.  The fact that Chase has been out of bed three times already?  That’s a different story.

Other than that, it was a pretty good day.  We planted our compost pile salvage pumpkins in the earth box and some tomato plants in our big pots.  Ok, I gotta get crackalacking.  Time to go dig out the basement.  I have ten dollars in quarters.  Maybe we’ll actually sell some of our crap tomorrow.
