Tuckered Out

For the last three days, Moses has put himself down for a nap--something I've long dreamt about.

His naps at home are great (one nap, 3 hours long) but still usually involve a bottle of milk , and recently, the PDO naps inexplicably shortened to only 15 minutes a day so we'd have a very cranky toddler on our hands from 6 p.m. until bed time.

This all changed last Wednesday. In the early evening, Moses decided to lie down on a couch pillow that had fallen on the floor and Dave rubbed his back for a little bit. Well, Moses conked out for 3 hours! I was tempted to wake him since I thought it would mess with his sleep schedule but decided to let him sleep since he'd just gotten over a cold and he probably needed the sleep. When he woke, he had dinner, a bath, and then went to bed at 10. Not bad. Not bad at all.

He's since repeated this twice but earlier in the day and without a back rub. Hooray, little man!
