Nap Time

File this under normal baby stuff that still freaks us out.

Ellie melted last night at 5:00.

Abby was cooking dinner, I was finishing up work for the day and Ellie was in her Exersaucer, playing with toys and watching Abby cook.

I went into the other room and came back to find Ellie in this position:

She had simply run out of gas and fallen asleep in a comfortable position. This wasn't a doze, she was out. So far out that I could pick her up and lay her down in the Pack n' Play in the living room for a 30 minute power nap (but not before taking some pictures, of course):

It is still the 'normal baby' stuff that causes us the most trouble.

Was this normal?
Was her blood sugar low or high?
Had we fed her too much after increasing her rate to 55 ml/hour?


Just a sleepy baby.

She rallied at 5:30 and was out for the night at 7:30.

We are well over 500 ml of formula a day these days. Gotta love that pump.

How wonderful it would be to be able to fall asleep for a nap that quickly and easily! Thank you for feeding out collective fix with the pics!

And is that the stuffed animal that I gave her mooning us in the upper left corner?
