not so quiet time

Stella stopped taking naps recently. That's good, because now she falls asleep the second her head hits the pillow at 7:02 pm. But it's not so good, because it makes the afternoons seem like they last forever.

On the best days, I can get her to lie down for a minute so that I can close my eyes. Sometimes she can be convinced to play in her room for a bit. Most of the time she's chatting my ear off. Today she was showing me magic tricks.

And then I caught her eyes mid-sparkle.


  1. A little part of me dies everytime someone grows out of naptime. But you're right, the time I get to spend with Hudson is priceless.

  2. she is so cute and I know you would like quiet time but she is so precious and you are so patience. She will be in school in the blink of an eye.
    love you

  3. I feel like naptime should be an all-ages activity :) What a beautiful girl she is!

  4. She's such a beauty. Tell her to give Uncle Neal a call sometime!

    1. neal definitely has a special gift. he is so good at little kid conversations.

  5. hehe i was thinking the same thing, les! i'm sure neal would have a nice long chat with her :)
