Toddler Naps are Necessary

So glad to have Jesse napping at his regular time again!

There’s nothing like a 4-hour nap from 11:30 am – 3:30 pm to put a 2-year old right again. 🙂 For the past couple of weeks he’s been out of sorts everyday because we’ve been keeping him home to get over Hand Foot & Mouth Disease. We’re not sure exactly where he picked it up from, but we kept him home almost non-stop for the last 10 days. So many of our local friends have been blessed with new babies lately and there are lots of little kids, so we just couldn’t risk spreading it around.

Since we’ve just been hanging out at the house he has been either skipping his nap completely or not falling asleep until way late, around 3 pm or even 4:00. Such insanity, ugh!

It took quite a bit of effort earlier today, half an hour of rocking and listening to his exhausted screaming, but he finally accepted naptime. After a great loooong nap through the middle of the day, he woke up with a happy face and in a much better mood. Now that’s the sweet toddler that I remember!
