exhausting

All better!

I was exhausted yesterday.

After two awful nights with Lily, I was like a walking zombie. (I really do need my night sleep)

We ended up going to the library in the morning after all.

Lily didn’t have much of a fever and she seemed in good spirits.

Once we got back home, I tried giving her some lunch but she still didn’t have much of an appetite.

I checked her fever and it was back up to almost 101.

Because she was cranky and in pain, I decided to give her some Ibuprofen before putting her down for her nap.

Well, it was the worst nap she ever took!

She woke up 4 times in the first 45 minutes of being asleep.

Then, woke up again twice in the next hour.

Every time she woke up, she was crying and cranky.

I know that when she wakes like that she isn’t ready to be awake yet so I kept on putting her back to sleep.

She finally slept for an hour straight and when she woke up she was her regular chipper self.

She woke up a whole different person.

Whatever was going on, I think she finally fought through during her crazy 3 hour nap.

She had a great lunch after her nap, we went to the park, she had a great dinner (YAY! her appetite is back), she went to sleep at her regular time and slept until 6am this morning.

Looks like she is all better. 🙂

Exhausting!

This past week was EXHAUSTING!!!

Lily has decided to ditch her second nap.

Yup! You heard me right, she is only taking 1 nap throughout her 13-14 hour day.

What 10 month old only takes 1 nap a day?

AND…. It wouldn’t be so bad if it at least was a 2 hour nap but NO, it isn’t. It’s only a 45-60 minute nap.

All I hear from the other parents is how their babies (Lily’s age) take three 2 hour naps. Or two 2 hour naps. One 2 hour nap!

Only 1 nap a day is EXHAUSTING!!!!

is she counting how many naps she will take? NO! is she counting how many possible ways she can exhaust me? YES!
