30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 10

Blessing #10: I have a child who sleeps!

Kira has always been a great sleeper. She slept through the night by 6 weeks old. She took 2 full naps a day, plus slept 10-12 hours at night until she was 2. Even now, a month away from turning 3, she still sleeps 10-11 hours every night and a good 2-3 hour nap every day. She goes to bed almost voluntarily most of the time. Her worst stalling techniques are to occasionally need to brush her teeth or use the bathroom; sometimes she needs a drink or a book for her bed. But after going through these standard items (which takes maybe 5 minutes tops), she is more than happy to stay in bed.

I don’t function on not enough sleep, so having a baby/toddler who doesn’t fight bedtime is probably one of the biggest things I am grateful for.
