Life as of Lately

We are tired over here at the Neilson house. So very very tired. I've been exhausted lately! Little Etta is being so cute but so crazy! Something happened when she turned one. She has turned into a crazy zombie banshee baby. She'll be the most adorable thing then at the flip of coin she's a crying mess.

I've just been having a really hard time figuring out the new schedule she's on. We were such clockwork before and now it's changed, which is totally OK but I just need to figure out what it changed to. We're on totally different frequencies. So basically days are just really long with my new hyper active non napping super adorable child. Any suggestions? Did any of you notice a big change in you babies at one?

So that's our problem, but then rob is tired too. Normally when I'm feeling extra tired I use a lot of help from Rob. And although he has still been really helpful, he's so tired! I almost feel bad asking because he seems just as tired as me. With all his volleyball camps ALL day and traveling here and there and everywhere he's just wiped. So basically what I'm asking is does anyone want to take Elizabeth so we can sleep for like three days straight?

I would take her but I just had a baby : ) I'm kind of in the tired boat with ya haha. But to answer your first question, Miley totally did that too. But we still stuck with the naps, we would offer it and if she didn't, she didn't. But she stayed in bed. And since we stayed in the habit she eventually started falling asleep again. And still takes 2 hour naps. Hope that helps!

Boy would I love to help but I'm still pretty tired myself. Getting up at 5:30 every day doesn't work well for me...

Hi Sarah! All of my babies change their schedule at 1! It seems like they usually naturally gravitate to a schedule of one long nap later in the day (around 12:30/1:00-ish). Anyway, that may or may not help. Good luck and welcome to the toddler stage! ;)
