The evolution of naps...

Dear me three months ago,

You may think you will never be able to put your baby down for a nap. That you will be forever trapped under a heavier and heavier child, with some type of repetitive strain injury from iPhone web browsing, but take heart. One day your baby will start sucking his thumb, and shortly after that he will start being able to be put down awake and in his bed and be left alone to put himself to sleep for naps. It. Will. Be. Amazing. Freedom like you never imagined possible. Leave it to motherhood to transform previously mundane tasks (laundry, dishes, paying my credit card bill!) into luxurious, and seemingly self indulgent activities just because you're doing them sans bebe (hey, who's been reading about French babies? All of a sudden that book is everywhere).

Now if only he would start sleeping for more than 45 minutes at a time I could really spoil myself and do something crazy, like weeding the garden!
