I've been giving Violet her little stuffed horse, Gallops, when I'm feeding her and putting her down for a nap. I've read in all the baby books that some babies like to have a "lovey" and that as they get older it might help them go to sleep and stay asleep. I just put Violet down for her first nap and she started to wake while I was laying her in the crib. So I handed her Gallops and she grabbed him and started to chew. She went right back to sleep like this, so I took a picture.
Also, yesterday was Wylie's birthday - #15!! The same age as my sister, Deirdre!
