Tired Girl

Daddy has been away all week, and Smudge has had Mommy up for hours every night. Yawn! Those darn teeth really do keep a girl up at night, and she gets plum tuckered out. Mommy is dragging a bit this week too after all her sleepless nights with the Wee One. Hurry home Daddy.

As a result of her sleepless nights, Smudge was very tired the other day, but wouldn't settle for a nap. Groan! She came to me for a rock and a snuggle, and wonder of wonders, she zonked out in my arms while we were listening to music and singing together. She usually bounces for a bit, rocks for a bit, and then bounces some more. As I was rocking her and singing to her, I thought she had become very quiet.

Grandpa took a picture and then got a blanket to wrap her in. The music played on, we sat and talked, and she slept in spite of all the noise and activity.
Oh the joy of snuggling with a sleeping baby. What a treasure she is.

Smudge Lesson for the Week - Don't fight taking a nap when you need one. It will do you a world of good, and you will feel so much better when you wake up! Are you ready now bloggers? Grab your blankie, put your feet up and ZZZZZZZZZ!
