One nap?

This morning Leah slept until 7:30. Then we had breakfast with a friend from about 8:30 to 10. We came home for a bit, Leah had her milk, and we headed out for 11:15 music class. She was happy and quite participatory the whole time - so obviously the lack of a morning nap wasn't bothering her. She didn't eat much lunch - half a yogurt and about 2 peas - wasn't willing to try anything else I put in front of her. So then I put her down for her nap at 12:30.

She went right to sleep. But then she started making some noise around 1:25. She fussed for a bit, played for a bit, and fussed a little more. But then she was quiet by about 1:35. And made some more playing noise just before 2:00. It's now 2:30 and all is quiet. So obviously she hasn't been asleep for the entire time, but it appears that she may be ready to take a full midday nap.

I'm going to try this out a bit more and if it seems to be working, we may go to 1 nap all the time by the end of the month or so.

Leah finally got up and pushed the baby in her stroller...she's stable enough to push the very lightweight stroller as long as she stays on the carpet...not enough traction on the hardwood floor...but she's very very excited about being Mommy Leah pushing her baby around: She had a blast at Asher's birthday party on Sunday...she and Cooper played together a lot...and she gave him a big hug:
Yesterday evening she tried to steal my purse...took it right off the chair and carried it over to the carpet and put it with her toys...funniest part was that she "walked" there on her knees so she could carry it - a funny sort of sideways knee walk - so so cute:
We had a fun playdate at Avery's yesterday...and she gave him a big hug:
And very much enjoyed pushing him around in the wagon:
