FFF, Crib Update and Call for Addresses

Here's a pic for Favorite Foto Friday. She was under the desk playing peek-a-boo and I thought this was a cute shot.


I have more pics I'll get up soon I hope.


An update on the crib/sleep situation..... As expected, she is fine in the crib at night for now. She goes to sleep so fast and it's dark so I think we've got more time at night. We just have to be sure not to leave her in there long once she's awake. Yesterday's attempt at a nap was a repeat scenario. She freaked as soon as I put her in the crib and was on the rail by the time I got to the door. So, today I decided to try the pack-n-play for a nap. I put her in and she did have the same hysterics, but I went ahead and left the room. I stood outside for a few minutes until it seemed she wasn't going to get out. I went ahead and let her cry for about 20 minutes and she finally went to sleep. She's now been sleeping for almost 2 hrs!!!!! Yeah!!!! So, for now, her room will be a little on the crowded side with the pack-n-play crammed in there. But, she still needs her naps during the day and I'm quite sure she is not ready for a toddler bed. She is too young to reason and communicate the rules to.


I did talk to the people at the place we got her crib and they did say a tent won't work on the crib we have.


I'm going to try the pack-n-play for a while and see how that goes. If it solves the nap situation and nighttime continues to go smoothly, we'll just buy some time with this setup.
Lastly, I'd like for any of my blogger buddies that would like a Christmas card to please send me your address. You can email me at alleensantana@yahoo.com

That smile is contagious!! I love your Miss G! I am glad you figured out naptime... we have that battle too and she usually sleeps on the couch with us tiptoeing around trying not to wake her up!!

When I was little and climbing out of my crib, my mom just put a chair by the crib so I could climb out safely.

I love that picture! Good luck with naptime. As I type my husband is trying his hardest to get Ella down for the night. Just in the past few nights has this become difficult. Pray this does not continue - she used to go down so easily!
