I'm frustrated! In an effort to be honest in all aspects of my life, I'm taking my frustration to my blog in hopes that it will help me put my thoughts on
I'd like to say my girls are great sleepers/nappers, etc. but the reality is, they aren't. Well I shouldn't exactly say that, because they are, but it's just not until they go to sleep that they are.
Zoelle for example is suppose to be napping right now, but I have been in her room three times already telling her she has to sleep, yet she is still up. It used to get me extremely upset when this would happen. It still does, but to a lesser extreme. I have come to realize that I can't force her to nap, I can only just tell her to and hope and pray that she follows. Now I do understand that at 2.5 she may be coming to an end of naps, but I'm not quite certain she is. Most days, she cannot make it without a nap or else she is extremely crabby. Thank God for the fact that she sleeps great all night long and has since she was a babe.
Of course now that Zoelle is awake, Meridian decides to actually nap today! And by the time Zoelle falls asleep, Mer will probably be waking up. Sigh...I feel as if I don't get a break.
Meridian is still having a tough time with sleeping. She will sleep absolutely great for naps in a sling, our arms, in her swing, or in her carseat. I keep telling myself that I should be ok with that, yet I really have a desire for her to sleep in her crib for naps. For one, I think she would sleep much better being away from all the noise. Bedtime is still a big struggle too. She will fall asleep in her crib, but wake up two hours later and think that it is awake time. Being that her and Z share a room, I cannot keep Meridian in there and work with her, so I end up taking her into the light, which in turn wakes her up for another two hours until it is our bedtime. In which she will sleep then with relatively little waking up time.
Sigh...it's a good thing they are cute!
