Over the weekend David and I took a drive to La Jolla in the hopes that William would take a nap in the car so we could drive around (one of our favorite pastimes). He's slowly been giving them up, as hard as I try, and it makes me really sad. I read in HSHC that kids should take naps until at least 3 and he's not even halfway through 2. I would still like him to some days when he's being particularly ornery but generally he seems to be doing just fine. He sleeps really well during the night (from 7:30 - 7:30 or so) and doesn't seem to need a nap at all. I'm the one who's struggling! Nap time was precious time! Time to take a nap myself or do computer work uninterrupted or watch Downton Abbey or something else really selfish . . . but no more! My one consolation is that he will still have "quiet time" where he'll lay on the couch and watch a movie or just read books. It gives us both a little rest. We recently switched him out of the crib and into a "big boy" bed and since then he's been sleeping really great and taking 3 hours naps. I'm not counting that as "the norm" yet though since it's been less than a week. Fingers crossed that the trend continues!
Anyway, our plan for a little car nap didn't work out but we did get a few fun pictures at the temple.
