Grandma's visit, April 21

We had a great time visiting with Grandma. Allyssa loved showing off her new talents. Grandma also taught her how to take a nap. She now takes at least an hour and 20 min nap, sometimes longer, evey afternoon. The trick? Wrap her in a blanket. I was scared to do that because of suffocation, but she hasn't. A few days after Grandma left, we took her advice and began using a bigger blanket, which made wrapping her up easier. Allyssa loves the blanket Grandma Piehl made for her. We also started letting her use it at night. I was more scared about that because I would be asleep and wouldn't be checking on her. She now wakes up fewer times at night. She still gets up early (5am today!), but she doesn't wake up as often at night. Hooray! Thanks Grandma!

2 out of 3 Black children agree that a Grandma Piehl blanket is essential for napping.
