Sleeping, Playing, and Decorating

Neely is FINALLY going to sleep on her own. I've found the key to getting this to work is to put LOTS of stuffed animals in the crib when I put her down. She usually plays for a few minutes and then folds herself in half and falls asleep. After a while she gets laying flat, but I think it's too funny. Here she is a few minutes after she fell asleep for her nap.
On Wednesday, we met with a playgroup that we just joined. There are 6 babies in it and they are all between 8 and 10 months and they are all only children. It's been fun getting the babies together and visiting with the moms. The great thing about this is that when we leave Neely is EXHAUSTED. She took a 2 hour nap on Wednesday!!!
Today we went to Kindermusik and then to our Sunday School class playgroup. This is always a fun day because Neely gets to hang out with a bunch of kids and I get to get to know my class members better. Neely took a nap for an hour and a half today. PRAISE THE LORD!While Neely napped today, I worked on recovering my dining room chairs. They were an ugly brown fabric to start with & I covered them with a really textured lime green fabric. The picture doesn't do them justice, but I love them. Brad said he really couldn't tell the difference. Boys.
Tonight I start Bunko. I've never played before, but I'm really looking forward to it. Brad will be putting Neely down for the night for the first time. Keep your fingers crossed it goes well.

Gosh, I hated it when my children took naps--I wanted to be with them all of the time, day or night...esp. night...24/7 ;-)Amanda--LOVE YOUR BLOG. Neely is so very adorable, and you are wonderful writer.
