More on Anya

As of about two weeks ago, we stopped insisting that Anya take a nap.  Even though she would sleep most days for 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours, she was having a very hard time falling asleep at night and was also waking up too early in the morning.  In the past, if she didn’t nap, she would get cranky or kind of punchy around dinnertime and would be nearly falling asleep by bath time.  However, the nap skipping experiment has gone quite well.  Most days she breezes through the day without issue and then goes to sleep relatively soon after we put her to bed – and stays asleep for about 11 straight hours.  A couple of times, skipping the naps has caught up with her and we ended up having her “rest” in her bed, knowing she would probably conk out.  I hear that tends to happen when kids give up their naps.

Also, Anya can now officially spell three words – her name, boots, and mom.  🙂
