Sleeping Transitions

I have to make a post about Macklin's sleeping habits so that I can rejoice over the progression in a few weeks (God, are you listening to this right now?).

Macklin has decided in the last week that he is no longer a fan of the morning nap. While this saddens his momma very much, I am doing my best to embrace the change. He just cried through a nap early next week, and before we knew it, 4 days in a row went by where he didn't take his morning nap. To add to the tiredness, he only slept for an hour and a half in the afternoon.

Let's do the math...
previous 8 months of life = 5 hours of sleep during the day
previous week of life = average of 1.5 hours a day.
Tiredness for all.

We are trying to find a new rhyme to get into. We have tried the early lunch and to bed at good. We have tried to stick to the normal afternoon nap at 2pm...way to tired at that good. Today we tried to put him down between 12:30-1pm an he went down and slept for 2.5 hours! Yah! So, I think we will continue with this for the week and see what happens. I hear crazy stories about kiddos sleeping 3-4 hours in the afternoon, but I don't believe that yet....hopefully soon!

Keep you posted and say a prayer for our baby boy and his confused parents ;)
