We are trying to transition Emily to two naps per day instead of three. This is hard! If anyone has any ideas to make it easier let me know. The reason I'm doing this is because she has been napping great- usually an hour in the morning, an hour and a half in the afternoon and then 45 minutes in the late afternoon. But her nighttime sleep.....terrible. She goes to bed fine at 7:00 but she wakes up crying at 11:30, 2:30 and at 5:30 she wants to be up for the day. Thankfully, Steve takes most of the work at night but we are both exhausted. As soon as we pick her up she stops crying, when we put her down she cries again. Last night we let her cry it out. She woke up at 11:30, cried for a few minutes, I went in a shushed her but didn't pick her up, she cried a little more and then just laid awake/playing for an hour and a half (!!) then went back to sleep until 5:30 and wanted to be up for the day. This girl is going to kill us with lack of sleep. Oh and I love Merlin's magic sleep suit but she is going to grow out of it soon and she will not sleep without it now. Great.
In the pregnancy department, I haven't had many symptoms except being tired and a small amount of nausea. I'm 9w3d today and I had an OB appointment on Monday. The Dr found the heart beat with a doppler and that brought so much relief!
Emily has done some really great stuff in the past couple of weeks. Saying mama, clapping, and playing "so big". She still has no interest is scooting or crawling, she hates being on her knees. Yesterday she worked on standing during PT and she loves it now! Her last helmet appointment went really well and she will have another head scan in a month and might graduate from her helmet early!
