Naps are pretty hard to come by these days. I’m lucky if Emma will take one 45 minute nap a day. Usually they are anywhere from 5 minutes to 20 minutes. I’ve tried it all – swaddle, white noise, swing, crib, Rock n Play, Pack n Play, holding her, rocking, walking, bouncing – none of it seems to work. I’m hoping this is just a phase and she will go back to taking at least one really good nap a day. This has been going on for a few weeks, so my hopes are fading fast.

Over the last couple days she really fights going to sleep.  Then she ends up a crying, drooling mess.


Finally I’ll get her to sleep. Even though she looks so peaceful, this nap only lasted 5 minutes.


She always wakes up happy… even if it was only 5 minutes.


Last week she had 4 days in a row where she slept 6 to 7 hours at a time at night. It. was. awesome. Then two nights ago she decided she wanted to wake up a lot, and stay up for an hour at a time. Not cool Emma. Not cool. My fingers are crossed that she’s going to go back to sleeping good at night… soon.
