Saturday, May 3, 2008 - Update

Does anyone know what story mommy is reading to me? Lin got it right. . It was Gertrude McFuzz.

I have the most wonderful daughter. Lately, we haven't been able to get her to take longer than a 45 minute nap in the afternoon and yesterday she slept for 3 hours. I think she knew that mommy needed some time to herself. Our afternoons depend quite a bit on what kind of nap she takes, but we have quite the morning routine. We always take a morning nap together. We snuggle up in the recliner and she wiggles around until she finds that perfect spot. When she finds it, she gazes up at me and smiles. . .closes her eyes and goes to sleep. Since her afternoon naps have been lacking, I should really use that time to get things done around the house, but. . .that time is just too precious to me. When she wakes up, I change her out of her jammies, give her Prevacid, feed her cereal and a bottle. After she eats, I give her a little foot massage (with lotion.) Because of all of her heel sticks, she had a bit of an aversion to things touching her feet. Now she loves it and sometimes even rolls her eyes back in a state of pure relaxation. After that we read a morning story and then she sits in her bouncy seat so that I can change out of my jammies. Who knows what the rest of our day has in store.

The picture looks an awful lot like a Dr. Seuss book. I couldn't tell you which one though....
