**Knock on Wood**

Carrie is a great sleeper!! (look at the title of the post) Just the last week or so, she's started taking a morning and afternoon nap instead of just cat-napping all day. I've actually noticed sometimes when she's fussy, she's just sick of me trying to take care of her. As soon as I put her down in her crib and leave her alone, she falls asleep for a couple hours. She's growing up!!

And to prove my point of what a great sleeper she is, here is a picture of her morning nap from today in Relief Society. I was holding her, trying to sooth her etc., but it seems all she wanted was her own chair! :)

She sleeps through noise (thanks in large part to my crazy loud family). We're over at my parents house a lot and it never seems to phase her with how loud things are. There's always something going on. We're actually trying to figure out how to make it a little louder at our own house because when we come home it's so quiet with just Justin and me.
She has also been pretty consistant lately with night-time sleeping. She'll usually eat around 8:30, be quietly awake until about 9:30 or 10, and then sleep until around 6am. :) *p.s. Knock on wood again, but she hasn't really been too colicky the last few days... everyone cross your fingers.
We love the quiet awake time at night because that's usually when she's most smiley and likes to "play" with us. We really enjoy our little family moments with her. Justin and I still look at each other sometimes and say "Wow... we're really parents?" It's awesome!

I still get the feeling of Wow I'm a mom. I wonder if it ever ends.

She is precious. That is great that she is taking two naps, she is creating a good schedule for herself. Enjoy yours and Justin quiet time after she is down for the night. Love you all!
