Sam is a great sleeper.
There, I said it.
Sometimes I hesistate to talk about it or I'm tempted to apologize to moms whose children have other skillz. But I don't expect them to apologize for their child's expanding vocab, desire to snuggle, ability to wave bye-bye or blow kisses so I won't either!
I do have to comment on today...it's weird. Sam slept about an hour later this morning than normal. Because of that, he didn't take a morning nap. I had a dentist appointment so he stayed with a neighborhood friend and played with her daughter who just turned 1. (Apparently we need to get him a Cozy Coupe b/c he lurved her's).
Anyway, he was a tad overtired since I picked him up around 1:30...this is when he normally goes down for an afternoon nap. He settled down in the car on the short ride home (under 2 minutes). He has now been asleep for over 2 1/2 hours. Rarely do we encounter a nap of this length.
Days like today are great but they just beg the question, "what was different?" Is it the rain? Is he having a growth spurt? Was it the fact that I gave him some of what we ate for dinner last night? Bruschetta Chicken Bake
To those questions, I answer, it MUST be the rain since I've had the overwhelming desire to take a nap all day too.
