Last week was a first for Estelle - a 90 minute nap.. in her own crib! Of course this is no big deal for so many babies, but our itty bitty girls seem to love sleeping in the carseat, our arms, the swing, etc. but cetainly not an actual bed. So while most days we try to encourage some bed napping, this long snooze came as a lovely surprise for mum, who, after checking about seven times to see that Estelle was actually okay, was able to cook and clean and fold laundry! All of the things I'm being paid to do right now.
A long nap makes for one happy baby.
(In case you're wondering, the following day's nap lasted about 10 minutes! It's a work in progress...)
Footnote: Alice has been sleeping well in her crib since about this age, 3 months.
