Nap Time Playlist

Baby is not a great napper. Never had been. And I hope one day will be. It took us months to finally get to the place where she is at now, which is once she is asleep--she actually stays asleep for a long time. But getting her to fall asleep, well that is a whole other story.

Somedays, I give Baby her blanket and binky, we sit in the rocking chair, and a few moments later she is out. Other days, this process is not quite so simple. The longer it takes her to fall asleep, the more high strung I become and the more resistant she gets. So, instead of getting worked up, I sing.

I don't think I am a great singer, but when I sing soft and dainty, I am sure it sounds okay. Whether it helps relax her, I don't know. But I do know that it helps keep me calmed down.

These are the songs I sing to her.
