I know a few people who have babies with this talent, but I've never had the pleasure. And it is truly a pleasure. Even now, after witnessing it with mine own eyes a hundred times--when I see her on the monitor sleeping peacefully mere seconds after I left her awake! And alone!, I am shocked.

But they're both able to put themselves to sleep swiftly and soundly, and I'm grateful for it. I just didn't think their little sister would be falling in line so soon.
