Miracles do Happen!

Below is a very blurry, very zoomed in picture of my baby.

I took it from the door without going in the room.

I almost didn't take it at all for fear of waking her just by being there!

Today, for the first time ever, on purpose, for me, she fell asleep all by herself for a nap on a day that Daddy is at work. Without nursing. And without me in the room!

After lunch and a fresh diaper. I took her to the room.

We read If You Give a Pig a Party.

Then I asked her if she wanted to read books or lay down and I sing her a song.

She wanted to lay down. I gave her the option of putting her blanket on or putting pants on. After several attemps she wouldn't cooperate. So I told her, 'no pants, no song.'

She still refused. So I gave her stack of books and told her to stay in her bed, "first, look at books. Then, lay down and rest."

When I came to check on her later, much to my astonishment, she was asleep!

Totally doing the silent happy dance!!!!

She definitely gets a lollipop when she gets up!


  1. What a moment! Hope on the horizon!

  2. Good feeling! I remember when my kiddos finally fell asleep after all the struggles. I'll dance with you :)
