Enjoy the Silence!


(Ok, some of you may recognize the title of this as a nod to one of my favorite '80's groups...)

Anyway, truly, for the past two nights I have been enjoying the silence of a peacefully sleeping baby, and I am just shooting off a quick post to check in and then I will hopefully enjoy the silence for another blissfully, sleep-filled night! I attribute this to a combination of things -- the diligent napping schedule, and the removal of the extremely effective yet possibly too invigorating VaporPlug. I think an additional part of the sleep deprivation problem (hers -- not just mine!) is that she's been sick and not getting enough sleep is not helping her to get over her cold.

I have lots of things to catch up on that I will share later this week -- the Christmas project that I did for a special someone -- it's a simple, yet thoughtful gift to give a family member or friend for any occasion.

Also, it's late for this past Christmas, and early for next -- but I have a picture to share of the cute Rudolph cups that my girl and I made (a variation on the Thanksgiving cups we made that I shared with you in November) -- they came out even cuter than I imagined!

And, the bustle of our soon to be 7 year old's birthday party preparations!

But I'll save all of that for later -- right now, I wish you and your children a peaceful night's sleep, and I'm looking forward to the same!

Yeah! A sleeping baby always makes Mommy happy. So do you think the plug in is too much for her? Enjoy your quiet evenings and good night sleep!

I'm not sure -- it works GREAT when your child is super stuffy and can't get to sleep, but I was thinking that maybe when she was just a little congested and overtired, perhaps the nightlight (that is part of the VaporPlug) and the strong scent was a little too stimulating. At that point I'd try anything to get her to sleep, so out it went!
