I have said it a million times in the last year, but we are extremely lucky parents (thus far).
Most of the time these last few months, as she becomes more alert and more independent, she is actually often excited to get into her crib and take a nap.
This probably won’t sound like something important to most non-parents, but it really has been nice, especially compared to the months when she refused to nap at all some days. On no-nap days, she gets so damn tired that everything makes her sad, upset, needy, whiny, fragile, you name it. Usually this kind of thing ruins your evening more than anything, but still, to put it bluntly, tired babies suck to be around.
But lately, Gianna has been excited to take naps, and even hurries into her bedroom to do so:
I tell you what. I sure hope this continues. Melissa says that since I took this video and posted it on here that she is never going to take a nap again. I sure as hell hope this isn’t the case.
