Reagan and I have this routine worked out now at bedtime, it goes something like this Reagan says goodnight to mommy and mommy leaves. We then settle down for a bottle and a story from our chosen book then Reagan stands up and I lay her down…we repeat this cycle three or four times until she is just too tired to stand but she may sit up a couple of times after this then she gets “the stare”
“The Stare” is the relaxed zone out just before her eyes start to droop when she just lays there listening to the story. Her eyes started to droop a couple of minutes later and I watched her out of the corner of my eye and it took less than a minute for her eyes to gently close and for her to drift off. She looked so beautiful as she slept and its unbelievable that five minutes earlier she was VERY awake and stood reaching for the book I’m reading to her, looking like it could be a long night and now she’s perfectly asleep?
