"Mama I watch movie"

Those were SS's last very groggy words before falling asleep last night. Our girl had a very big day. As you can see in the pictures below SS fell asleep while leaning on me. Another quirk of our daughter is that she does not have a consistent way of falling asleep. JJ fell asleep while riding in the car and on me if we were out past his bedtime. But at home, I simply placed him in his crib and he fell asleep. Silly, young, innocent me, I had no idea how good I had it then. The more time we spend with SS, the more we realize JJ was the easy one. Excuse us while we hurl and say YIKES!.

Anyhoo, consistency is way overrated in SS's world. To fall asleep in the same manner every night, a routine, that would be way too simple. Sometimes I rock (actually glide) her to sleep, sometimes she falls asleep in our arms, sometimes she asks to be placed in her crib and wants to be left alone, sometimes she lays next to P and buries her head in the crook of his armpit, and other times she leans on one of us until she dozes off. Just like she did last night. SS is like Forest Gump's proverbial box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get. And she is only three, we can't wait to see what other quirks she is going to develop. Of course we will deposit into her therapy fund accordingly.

Thanks. The quirkier she is, the more we fall in love with her. :)
