On another note, she is really cute... This was her Valentines' get up. And she got to eat a pine cone! What a day!
I need some advice ya'll, those with kids or without please lend an ear. Although having kids would probably help your advice, I want it anyway. Little bit has decided to quit a good nap. She was napping about a hour in the morning (8:30-9:30) a hour or more in the midday (11:15-12:15) and a late afternooner around 3-4:30 or 5. Well has she thrown me for a loop (literally, loopy) She has been napping for 30 minutes twice a day. Ya'll EFF this. I mean I know she not gonna nap forever but for $&!*s SAKE how am I supposed to get anything done? Not to mention she is mobile now so the ONLY time I can complete a task is when she is sleeping. Ugh why is this happening? See the bad part is that if she is awake for more than 3 hours at a time, she melts. Like she has to nap now ohmygod mom i may die if I don't sleep kinda nap. So I put her down and before I can do 3 things, shes up. Well let me let you into our
schedule lack of naps today. She got up at 7 and since she has been pushing that early nap back I decided we would skip it. I went to get her from Mother's Day Out and I am informed she has napped for what? 30 minutes. Are you kidding me? By the time we get home (15 minutes away) she is sooo tired so I make a bottle and put her down. She falls asleep within 10 minutes and shocker, is up 30 minutes later. I let her cry for 36 minutes. I had too, she was so tired she couldn't even lift her head. She fell back asleep for 20 more minutes. I am here to say that a 9 month old should be sleeping 15 hours a day (12 at night) to feel good and be well rested. Well what the hell is a 40 minute nap with 30 of crying then? I am frustrated because when she sleeps well she feels well. She sleeps every night from 7-7 so why is this happening!!! And just before it starts, no she is not sick, teething (1 just came through), or sad. Just give me some advice ya'll. I always have to call my sister for the "don't get her" speech cause I cave in and go get her so hopefully you guys can help hold me back as well!
