the eric update – day 419: and then there was one ( nap )?

while we’ve had some very occasional sleep “issues” for the most part, we adhere to a fairly regimented routine that seems to keep everyone happy. odin is almost always in bed between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. and although he still often wakes once in the night for food, he usually has a restful night’s sleep until 6 or 7 a.m.

two months ago he dropped the third of his three ( 9 a.m., 12 p.m. and 3p.m. ) daily naps and just this week, we think he’s decided that he does need his noon nap either, deciding instead to play on his BIg Boy Bed and excited as ever when we finally clue into the fact that he’s probably not going to fall asleep.

suddenly we’re realizing just how much “free” time we had when he was taking 3 naps a day now that we’re down to one 🙂

and as another indication that it’s really time to Batten Down The Hatches, odin has learned when he’s not taking a nap that he can tip over his diaper pail ( which is actually the one-step trash can that we puchased on our First Family Field Trip the day after arriving home from the nicu )!
