Sosi and the laundry basket

Ohhhhh, Sonia.... Yesterday, she was like a little Energizer bunny. For the first time ever, she refused her morning nap. Girlfriend usually loves her morning snooze-- it's always her longest nap of the day, she goes to sleep with nary a fuss, and I use that time to shower. Yesterday, Sosini would have none of a morning nap. "Nap? You want me to nap? Naps are for fools!" Then, after a short 10 minute nap in the car on the way to Buy Buy Baby with JLo and Caitlin, Sister Sue took a short half hour nap at 2pm. Even though we have been exploring the realm of only two daily naps, we decided to try for a third nap, and The Great Sosini politely explained that she'd much rather work on crawling and talking than take a snooze. By "politely explained", I mean that she refused to sit still for a story and lullaby and would not stop clapping and babbling. By the end of the day, she had dark circles under her eyes!

Luckily, though, she was in a fantastic mood all day, and she went to sleep at 7pm with no fussing at all. Then, after waking up once at 8pm, she slept through the night until 6am. Hopefully today's naps will be better!

Enough about sleep! The title of this post promises a baby and a basket.... Check out all the fun Sonia has with her beloved laundry basket! Why do we bother buying her toys? I'm not quite sure....

I just can't get enough of that adorable face! I agree with you on toys. Why do we buy them? One of Rose's favorite toys is a half filled bottle of water. That and the couch. :)

Ben spent half of his baby life in a basket. We have many pictures of Ben in a basket !!!!
