What The Friday?!

I don't know if you've noticed my lack of blogging lately...
(I'm sure you haven't, you have many others to read... unless you're a member of my family, and this is the only blog you read....)
but I have entered into the toddler arena.

LB is a-movin' and a-shakin'...
and I don't have much time to blog anymore.
T'is sad.
a bit of
what the friday?!

She was napping so well just a few weeks ago.
I'd rock her to sleep 
(because I don't know how else to get her to sleep...)
and lay her in her crib, and she would sleep for at least an hour.
It was golden.
But a few weeks ago,
she wakes up every time I move!
She will only nap if I hold her!!!
what the friday?!

Yesterday, I even crawled into her crib with her.
It ALMOST worked...
I'm going to try it again today.
(I don't know how I'll be getting out... but that's an entirely different worry.)
**What? I saw Kyle Richards do it with her 2 year old on Beverly Hills Housewives.**
{what? don't you get parenting tips from the Housewives??}

I am open to advice.

(I have let her cry.. just doesn't seem to work. She gets even MORE worked up and doesn't nap at all.)
**fyi- she falls asleep amazingly at night, I rock her to sleep, and when the bottle falls out of her mouth, I could Samba with her and she'd sleep through it!
**fyi- I don't know how to Samba.

*last fyi- I have been reading your blogs from my iPhone app while I'm rocking LB, but I'm too lazy to comment on them. Sorry!! I'll try to do better!!!

I'm not sure if my link up thingy is working?
what the friday?!

Still laughing at the taking advice from the real Housewives ... lol!

You might need to try and change the bed time routine- not rock her to sleep then- as night time is always easier than nap time. Then when she is used to not being rocked to sleep at night- not having to be rocked in the day will be normal- as really with naps they need to be put down before they are too tired or it is a lost cause. So if you can put her in bed when she is awake then naps can still happen.

Yeah, those housewives are nuts but sometimes I'm like, "I wish I could throw an expensive party like that!" I bet the food is delicious.

The Real Housewives is my guilty pleasure! Although I can't stand that Dana chick with her "Oh, did you know...$25,000 for these sunglasses!" I wanna pop her in the face with the back of my hand.

So LB will sleep if you stay with her so it sounds like she still needs that nap? Maybe you could lay on the floor next to her crib and then move further away each time until you're finally out of her room?
