I love my daughter very much. She's more fun every day, she's happy and she's doing all kinds of new things that are so exciting to witness.
I also love when she's asleep.
We are in the process of transitioning her from three naps a day to two. This has meant more general crankiness as we approach nap time -- because she's been awake for longer -- but it also means wonderful long naps, often two hours long. She also goes to sleep at 7pm and sleeps through until at least 3 or 4 am every night.
I love those sleeping hours.
I love that I can take some of that time to have adult conversations with WH or with other family or friends. I love that I can take some of that time to catch up on housework or other items on the to-do list. I love that I can take some of that time to sit in front of the television. I love that I can take some of that time to sleep myself!
And I love that when she wakes up from her nap or wakes up in the morning, she's back to her usual rested, happy and delightful self.
God bless sleep.
