Sleepy girl

Sadie has a knack for playing wonderfully all day and then suddenly snoozing wherever she may lay. Just this week alone, these are the places I have discovered her napping when moments before she was happily cackling and cooing. It is HARD work being a baby. All that eating (I'd forgotten this stage where cheerios find their way into every nook and cranny of our house), sitting up (here she just fell over backwards when she fell asleep and stayed there) and bouncing really make a growing girl tired! Luckily she is easy to transfer to her crib and she is seeming to enjoy it up there in her little pink slice of Heaven these days. From Day One she had been sleeping in the kitchen while her minions ran circles around her but as she outgrew her baby swing, we started using her crib for naps. At first she wasn't used to the quiet up there, but once we gave her Eamon's old noise machine, she is doing a lot better sleeping in her crib during the day. And a well-rested girl is a happy girl. Most people have never heard her cry or fuss at all and don't believe she ever does. You'll have to trust me on this: she DOES have her moments, but they are few and far between.
