Brotherly Advice

Crockett has a little something to learn from his big brother Emerson.

Nap Update

We are in day 2 of "Nap Camp" or in the spirit of football season approaching, "Nap Two-a-Days."

Day 1 was good... Hard but good. Crockett took 3 naps. The first of which was 1.5 hours. Huge success!!

The other two were about 30 minutes each. Lots of tears were shed during the afternoon nap but the biggest accomplishment for me was the fact that ALL 3 were in his crib in his room! No swing, no car. Go mom!

Day 2... Nap 1 is currently underway... We are going on 2+ hours!

To God be the glory!

I love naps.

I wish Crockett loved naps.

Crockett doesn't hate them, he is just inconsistent.

Crockett takes a morning nap in his crib. It used to be for 2 hours. Today 45 minutes.

Crockett takes an afternoon nap in the car for at least an hour. I drive or read.

I hate the car habit.

I dream of writing a blog post that gives a detailed description of Crockett's nap schedule. 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon.

I pray about my nap schedule obsession all the time.

I pray for wisdom, patience and an open mind.

I have read Baby Wise and Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child. Enjoyed both. Have a fabulous night time sleeper as a result of the wisdom in these two books.

I talked to a wise friend with 3 kids today and have a plan of attack for tomorrow...

We are staying home all day and Crockett will go down for a nap after an hour to an hour and a half of wake time.

I am hopeful.

So Behind.

I am so behind on blogging... So here is a photo update of our whole summer to get me back on track. Pathetic. 

Crockett's 1st summer has been fabulous!
