Miss A is in her crib right now because I'm trying, really really hard, to not give up on naps. Thank you for all your suggestions and comments, we are hoping this is a phase and not the end of naps! As I mentioned last week, she's been on a nap strike for almost two weeks now and the only place she has been falling asleep is in the car. Yes, I have spent many afternoons sitting in my driveway with a book or the iPad soaking in the quiet time. I'm not sure if her lack of naps is what's affecting her night time sleep but lately she has been a wreck. Up screaming three or four times a night, shouting "MAMA" at the top of her lungs and won't stop unless one of us goes in there to lay her back down. I've tried standing at her door and telling her to lie down and go back to sleep but she FLIPS out and it just breaks my heart. We're really at a loss here, and really sleep-deprived. Who knew my child would hate to sleep so much when her father and I LOVE sleep so much!?
In other news, Valentine's Day was pretty low-key around here. We celebrated earlier in the week with our first date night in six months and spent the evening curled up on the couch watching a movie and eating chocolate strawberries.
Miss A loved opening her gifts and was so excited to receive a package from her grandparents and great grandmother with a few of her favorite things- a Mickey Mouse card, a stuffed dog, and a new book. There were also cards and chocolates for me and the hubby, I love that my mom and grandma still think of us! Getting a sweet card or package in the mail can really make your day.
I tried to recreate her photo session from last year and while it didn't work so well I'm glad I did get a few decent pictures. Mama can't help it, I love taking pictures of you!
Hope you're having a good start to your week!
