This one word, sleep, means so much.
How did such a simple topic start to occupy so much of my mind?
Is this normal for new mothers?
"Does he sleep through the night?"
These two questions, though they are in the top 1-3 questions to a mother of an infant (in my experience), are actually not at the heart of the issue.
What I spend lots of energy thinking on is whether he's napping during the day and whether those naps are in my arms or on his own. Oh, how I yearn for him to nap on his own...
in large chunks of time. :)
It makes for a happy Mama and a happy George.
But, I'll admit: even more than hoping for long, independent nap times for George,
I think I'd rather pray for the ability to enjoy short, independent naps and the close snuggles of dependent naps...
Fully enjoy this season, right?
