Straight Up Wore Out

From the beginning we have been pretty consistent with Miles' sleeping patterns.  We always put him in his crib to sleep.  We don't rock him to sleep.  He only sleeps in his bed, except for the occasional car ride falling asleep.  We also have a schedule that we follow with him.  If that schedule gets interrupted, you can kiss his nap goodbye. 

Well, on Sunday we went to the later service of church, which threw me off time-wise, and probably threw Miles off too.  Miles played hard and fell asleep for five minutes in the car on the way home.  If he even sleeps for five minutes in the car, he will not take a nap when we get home.  So we fed him lunch like normal and played a little more and put him in bed.  No sleeping.

So we decided to go get some groceries.  We ran to Target where he was a trooper, then he fell asleep on the way home again.  This time when we went to get him out of the van, he stayed asleep (definitely a first)!  He had to be so tuckered out!

So T.J. brought him in and laid him down in the living room.  We were going out to dinner in about 45 minutes, so we just let him sleep there.  He only slept for about 40 of those minutes, then woke up.  I do think the dogs had something to do with him waking up because when I went to get him, they were both sitting right by his head:)

Neither T.J. nor I like to take naps, and I think our boy is just like us.  He now only takes one afternoon nap, giving us a 2-3 hour window of time to get stuff done around here.  He does, however, sleep 12+ hours a night (holla!), so I don't want anyone to think I'm complaining!
Pin It!
