I hate to write yet another post about my son’s sleep habits, but today really takes the cake.
After a 30 minute nap this morning, Sam was ready for another nap at about 1:30 (his second nap is usually around 3:00 or even 4:00) and slept for an additional 45 minutes or so. Around 5:30 he was super fussy so I put him down for another nap. Of course, he slept for a full hour that time. After his nap we had supper and played for a while, then did his bath and bed routine a little bit later than normal. I tried to nurse him to sleep, but it was an absolute no-go. I gave up and brought him upstairs where Will was playing videogames. An hour later Sam was cranky and tired and I brought him back to bed where he went to sleep without incident.
No, not without incident.
FOUR MINUTES after I crept out of bed, Will and I heard a shriek. I couldn’t believe that it was Sam, but he was sure it was and we rushed into the bedroom where we found a WIDE AWAKE baby exploring. He was pulling himself up on the headboard and grinning madly. Our cries of shock were met with giggles. GIGGLES.
So that is why I can’t blog today.
