Nap Time

In the beginning, we had to "teach" Sadie to take naps. We had to let her cry herself to sleep for naptime because she always wanted to stay awake. After about 3 days of this, she was a great napper and went down without any crying.

Lately, her nap times have been getting longer and longer...a day that I never thought would come. A long nap for her used to be an hour tops, and now she usually sleeps at least 2 hours. It is so nice.

Anyway, these days when I put her down for a nap, there is never any crying, but sometimes she will stay awake in her crib for a while just talking and playing before she falls asleep. Today this is what I heard coming from her room...

"Daddy??"
"Daddy??"
"Mommy?"
"Mom?"
"Wa-wa?" (Grandpa)
"Wa-wa?" (Grandma)
"Eba??" (Evan)
"Nanna?" (Shanna)
"Emo?" (Elmo)
"Emo?" (Elmo)
"Nanta?" (Santa)

It was so funny. These past few days she has been asking for all these people and I always have to tell her that they are all at their own houses. She is so funny. I love being a mom!
