a) she must be waking up at the same time because of the light from her window
b) her morning "nap" really is just an extension of her night's sleep because she is waking up too early
|at least she ALWAYS wakes up with a smile|
And then Stockton will show up and shift everything around again : ) The joys of sleep training!

It's been a pretty quiet week, other than some sensitive-induced freakouts, but we are enjoying our days. We usually go on a walk in the morning, do errands after lunch, go swimming before dinner and then play until bedtime. It's crazy that by the time Austin and I go to sleep, Natalie has already been sleeping for three or more hours! I love love love LOVE LOVE LOVE her early bedtime.
|caught an in-between moment between smile and more smile after a nap|
|haters gonna hate|
Last week I accompanied for auditions at the playhouse, and this week I finalized the arrangements to be a music director/pianist for a children's theater company in town, at least for the next two shows (Seussical and Annie). I'm grateful for the extra income (and flexible schedules) of these opportunities, and it's especially gratifying using my degree to help support my family. It was a reality check trying to work rehearsal schedules around having our second baby! I asked my husband if he would be okay handling both kids if I took this job, and his reply was, "of course! I will be Super Dad : )". Super Dad, indeed.
