Pumpkin likes her sleep. She generally prefers to sleep about 11-12 hours each night. However, sometimes it takes her a while to wind down from the day. When I hear thumping coming from her room, it is usually a result of her tossing and turning (and kicking the wall in the process). It makes me laugh when I go in to check on her after hearing her moving around and find her with her eyes closed, motionless, holding her breath, with the slightest hint of a smile on her lips. She is always amazed that I can tell she's not really asleep. I've not shared her "tells" with her yet. Instead, I simply appreciate her innocence and probably fall asleep with a smile on my lips as well, amused and content with the family I'm blessed to call my own.
*Note - The picture is actually Peanut as a baby. It is one of my favorite "sleep" pictures. When I look at it, I can almost feel her sleeping on my chest and smell her baby smell.
