Hippie Chick

I know I know... I am kind of a hippie. At least that is what some people call me. I am really not that bad but I occasionally like to do things different than what you may call the "norm". I am super pumped about something and I have to share my latest hippie trick! I was reading in a sleep book trying to figure out HOW am I going to get will to sleep in her crib? She HATES it and has since day one. The minute I set her down she starts to scream. I have tried the whole cry it out thing a few times and she is a stubborn one. The only thing I could get her to sleep in is this little napper thing that goes on top of the pack in play. Every time I describe this to someone I always say "It looks like a hammock". Well in this sleep book they were talking about this "Amby baby hammock"....hold on....back up...what!? BABY HAMMOCK? Hello? I have to google this greatness now! So I did some research and found out these hammocks run from $300+ and I don't have that kind of money. So naturally I am a craigslist-aholic and found one there for $40!! I picked it up as soon as I could and what do you know, Willa LOVES IT! She slept 8 1/2 hours in this thing first night out! I am beyond excited and just think it is the coolest thing since sliced bread. I took a little video of her napping in it. She is so stinking cute! You can tell she liked it so much she just wanted me to leave her alone.
