Wednesday's Wisdoms

Today I FINALLY learned how to get Ian to take a long nap!  (I just pray he's not actually getting sick)

He was feeling extra snuggly today and wanted me to carry him around everywhere.  So, I got out my handy K-Tan sling.  I love this sling!  I haven't had it out for along time because he has become much more independent.  I put it on and he loved it.  It felt so  good to have him snuggled into me so closely.  He fell right to sleep as I cleaned the kitchen and I slid him and the sling off of me together.  He remained all wrapped up.  He has slept for 2 1/2 hours and is still snoozing away!  Usually he sleeps 20-30 minutes.  This might top the list of things I have learned this year!

I apologize to all those parents that I had once thought were awful when they would say that they treasured nap time.  I remember when I was pregnant with Livia, I seriously thought that I  would never want her to go to sleep.  That I would want to spend every second with her.  Well, I soon learned everyone needs a break.
Yes, nap time is cherished in this home!


  1. What a sweet baby. Have I mentioned how excited I am to finally meet them?! love

  2. Amen to nap time! Before I had kids I always used to feel sorry for little ones when it was bedtime. I remembered how much I hated going to sleep as a child...well not now! I am always happy to see bedtime roll around, as it's my first real break in the day. So funny how our perspectives change!
