New Meaning to the term "Falling Asleep"
Well now I've seen everything! I played with the grand baby for about an hour -- we put little squares into little square holes, lined up her stuffed toys, handed her giraffe back and forth to each other, and played with the remote. I fed her some yummy bananas and custard and part of a bottle, refilled her sippy cup a few times as she loves water, watched while she held onto the dogs ears and gave him hugs and kisses and patted his head into concussion. (I was careful -- didn't let her hurt him -- but he has the patience of Job.) And then she started to fuss. There was no consoling her. I tried. So I put her into her Pack N Play (a small crib, for those of you non-baby peeps), and looked at the clock. It was 12:00 Noon. I made myself busy while she sat up straight and cried, rubbing her eyes. At 12:06 I did a double-take. She was sitting there with her eyes closed, and then she just fell over sideways! I went over to see if she was okay and she was -- and sound asleep! I covered her and did a couple of loads of laundry for my daughter and then read the book I had brought just in case. I have really never seen anything like it!
