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!
