Lilah was pretty tired just now, I'm not sure why because she just took a long nap not too long ago, but anyway she was fussy so I got her soother and was just rocking her for a bit in the livingroom - she fell right to sleep. I brought her up to her crib (we're phasing out the swing!) and laid her down. She was instantly WIDE awake.
I'm sick with a cold, and I've been up in the night with all three of my girls (all are or were sick with the same cold, only they had it worse than me for some reason), so I just didn't feel like standing over the crib and shushing her, etc, I'm just so tired. I left the room and went down to the livingroom. I could hear her talking away up there for a bit - maybe 10 min, and then it was quiet. I just snuck up there, and sure enough she'd put herself to sleep WITHOUT her soother.
This is the first time during a nap that she's put herself to sleep like that. She'll do it in the middle of the night, after she has a bottle she'll talk for a bit and then just turn her head and go to sleep, but she's never done it in the daytime. I'm amazed! Yay!
