Supper: Chicken Alfredo with Linguine (a Macaroni Grill meal)
Late last week, we actually made a quick decision to cut out Luke's naps. He was still taking them nearly 98% of the time. BUT, when he did take a nap, he was staying up way too late. We'd put him to bed around 10:00....many times, I'd hear him still talking in his bedroom until after 11:00....NOT a good cycle to get into.
ALSO, because he was going to bed SO late, Marc and I had virtually ZERO time together in the evenings. It was becoming very evident in the communication department.
SO, Luke's done fairly well without his nap. He's been going to bed around 8:00 in the evening. I've been hearing him talk for a whopping 5 minutes, and he's very quiet until morning.
I have instituted a "quiet time" in the afternoon. He doesn't have to be in bed, but he does have to be in and stay in his room for at least an hour.
He has stayed in his room and with the exception one little "poop" incident (where Luke threw poop out of his room into the hallway -- GROSS), it's gone O.K.
TODAY, however, after his quiet time, I was baking cookies in the kitchen while he was watching a tractor video. It suddenly was VERY quiet.
I walked into the family room to see this....
Yep, he had fallen asleep on the couch -- which I don't think he's ever done.
SO, Luke's still adjusting his little body and brain to a new sleep schedule, but he'll get there!
