A pretty perfect day

Lacey woke up this morning at 6:00 which usually means that I have to get up and play with her. I was still pretty tired so I gave her some milk and laid her back in her crib. Something amazing happened... she went back to bed for an extra two and a half hours. When she woke up, I was well rested and she was well rested. This is the first time in a while that she has woken up happy instead of grumpy and clingy. 

Then I got to spend the morning just hanging out, reading books, playing with toys, and running around with Lacey. It was a lot of fun, and I think that both of us really enjoyed it. After playing our hearts out, I put her down in her crib and she took a nap. No fussing, no crying, she just gave me a kiss and laid down for a two and a half hour nap. It is usually an ordeal getting her to nap and I was really worried about how things would go once I stopped nursing. It was wonderful. 

She woke up, we ate lunch and then we went to pick up the kids that I nanny for. It really was such a wonderful day. Lacey hardly cried or complained at all today. I actually felt like a good mom today. I felt like she really appreciated me today. It was a good day, a great day, a pretty perfect day!
