Sleepy Time Girl

Nora's sleep patterns have definitely moved away from the usual two-a-day nap schedule to just one, and she's been able to stay awake a lot later so she can have a regular lunch and then an afternoon nap as toddlers are supposed to.

I've been meaning to get a picture of Nora sleeping for some time, but it's not as easy as you'd think...

First of all, in her room you would need a flash, and it's a VERY rare day that you want to stick a camera in her face while she's sleeping and take a picture. Or six, as I did the other day.

As they say "Let sleeping babies lie..."

But finally the day finally came when she had slept LONGER than I wanted her to in her afternoon nap, and I was willing to deal with the fact that a flash just might wake her up.

But it really didn't. I took this and a few other pictures of her sleeping, with the flash, made plenty of noise doing it, and she barely stirred.

So I left the door open, turned the TV on in the family room and went to the kitchen and unloaded the dishwasher.

And she finally woke up, at 4 p.m. And of course stayed up til 8:30 p.m. that night!
