Jace was having a very happy morning—contentedly playing and entertaining himself while occasionally wanting to just sit in my lap and play with a remote or read a book. We hadn’t hit the grumpies yet (our signal that it’s time for a nap), but he started getting more insistent about wanting my coffee. To distract him, I asked, “Do you want your binkie?” and got it off the kitchen counter. Instead of taking it from me, he walked to the stairs, shook the baby gate and said, “ni-ni".” I gave him the binkie and his blankie (which he immediately rested his head on) and put him to bed without a fuss at all. I love what a good napper he is becoming!
This picture is of our morning routine—Jace enjoys a breakfast of milk and a waffle in the recliner, while Toby begs.
***Disclaimer: Not all naps are this easy. He’s really good at waiting until he’s in his crib to poop, and then won’t fall asleep.***
