Daily Dialogue

Frannie- I don't wanna take a nap. I'm not sleepy.
Me- You don't need to take a nap. But you have to have quiet time.
Frannie- I don't want quiet time I want to stay down here.
Me- But I need quiet time, so you have to have quiet time too. You can draw pictures in your tent.
Frannie- (exasperated) ooookaaay (and takes the pencil and paper I'm offering).

Every single time.

I woke her up with the flash. She slept for 2 1/2 hours.

Here are the other sleeping beauties.

These are just two cute pics from the weekend. Adam is always getting on the floor to lay next to Nattie. Uncle Bryan comes by to visit.

lovely pictures of your beautiful babies : )

Um, do you still want/need the bouncy seat? I haven't seen you since Natalie was born so I still have it.
I'll come to the park next week if you want it

Do you actually get all three to nap at the same time?

Hi Yara,
I've been taking the infant carseat into the house and using that to put her in when I need to set her down. I won't be at the park for awhile probably because Frannie has swim lessons at 9:30. So, I want it, but I don't know when we'll realistically see each other again. :(

Yes I do. It's probably the best thing I ever did- being sticklerish about sleeptimes. I always made Frannie take an afternoon nap. When Adam came along he took naps too. The way I got them to nap at the same time was just to have Adam take the lead. So if he went down at 1pm then I sent Fran to her nap at that time. If he went down at 2pm then I sent Fran at that time. She was older so she was more flexible. Right now baby is sleeping at noon, so that is when I send both of them. Let me know if you want more details about how to do it.

Awesome naps at the same time!!! They all look so cute when they are peacefully sleeping!
