Could it be??



Today I will brag about past Abigail and then plead for help with present Abigail...
All week Abigail has been impossible to put down for a nap. There have been a few changes to her routine somewhat recently. About 2 months ago, we finally got rid of the pacifier for good. About 3 weeks ago, we transitioned into a big girl bed. She did REALLY good with both changes. She has been sleeping really well in her bed and has been a much happier girl. She wouldn't get in and out of bed on her own even. She would stay in bed when we put her down, and would talk and sing until we got her up.

Until this week. She has been having a really hard time with naps. By really hard time, I mean, she hasn't taken them. One day I went in to see what the deal was, and she had taken down a 24x24 in canvas picture that hung above her bed, and was sitting on it. Yesterday she started getting out of bed when she wanted. Today she figured out how to open her door. As I type, she is standing at the end of the hall waving at me with a big old smile on her face.


WHAT DO I DO?? Could she seriously be done with naps already? She sleeps about 12 hours at night and goes down really easily.

On top of that- she has been a piece of cake to potty train. After over a month without a single accident, she is all of the sudden going back on that idea. She has had three VERY intentional accidents today.

Is she just out to get me?? All I know is that I have less than 3 months to figure this out, and I can use any advice I can get.

Kaiya has never stopped taking a nap. However, there was a time when she was 2 that she would only lay down for about 30 minutes. (I thought the end of nap time was quickly approaching and was dreading it!) I still needed "my" time so I just took the 30 minutes and kept laying her down. That phase passed and now she is almost 3 1/2 and still takes an hour and fifteen minutes to an hour and half naps. Secretly I hope she still takes them till she starts school. :)

Oh no! I wish I had some words of wisdom. That does seem early to be done with naps! But oh my goodness, look at those cute curly locks of hers, she is so cute. I'm sure you want to laugh and cry about it at the same time.
