Nap time Progress Report

I started Jillian again last Monday in her big girl bed to nap. On Monday and Tuesday, she played for about an hour before I went in there and helped her get to sleep by laying her in the bed and patting her back. On Wednesday, she fell asleep wedged between her crib and the wall in a tiny space...and didn't stay asleep for very long! Thursday and Friday went about like Monday and Tuesday. Then finally, on Saturday, she fell asleep in her bed all by herself! YEAH! She always does stuff like that when Seth is around so that it looks like I make things up when he is work!
Anyways, the naps are going much better than I thought. She doesn't ever sit at the door and cry and scream...she just plays and does her own thing for a while. I think she likes the freedom of being able to get her books, play with her babies, etc. Today, she fell asleep almost under her crib and she has been sleeping for about two hours! So, I think we are getting things into a routine and hopefully we will be able to try night time soon! We tried it the first night and she totally freaked out! I think with it being dark and having too much freedom, that she just couldn't handle it. So, I thought I would try again in February...when she is good and used to that bed. So, for now...my little girl is napping in her big girl bed...or at least somewhere near it!
Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese
Yummy
She LOVES this new snack cup! Why did I wait until 19 months to get this thing?

I could eat her up in those pig tails. She looks like such a big girl. I am glad the snack cup is a success. What are big sisters for except giving too much advice???

I was so confused because I saw what Summer had written and kept thinking, "Did I write that?" It took a couple minutes to click that it was your sister! I always get the biggest smile when I check your blog-she is so adorable!

I cant believe Jilly is doing so good in her big girl bed! SO are you using your same nursery furniture for baby girl number 2? Whats the plan yo?!

I'm taking notes since Jillian is a few months older than Adalie and know one day I'll be going through this as well. I can't even imagine Adalie would do as well as Jillian though.
Love those pigtails!!
