weekend roundup – christmas hangover

I’ll post separately about Christmas because that’s a whole different beast but this weekend was mainly spent just detoxing from the holiday.

We really didn’t do a whole lot all weekend. Stayed in… hung out… played with toys. Palmer got a cute little lawn mower for Christmas so we took it out in the grass. So. Adorable.

We also decided to take this weekend as an opportunity to tackle our nap issue. Palmer will only take a nap if she is swaddled and on our bed. We decided enough was enough and we were going to try and get her to take a nap in her crib. We did a little bit of CIO but it was tough. She kept throwing her wubbas out on the floor. We would go back in, give her the wubba, a little hug/love and try again. 40 minutes. It took 40 minutes to get her down for each of the naps.

I’m hoping the process gets easier in the next week. I would love for her to just feel happy laying in her bed but I think it’s going to take awhile for her to warm up to the idea.

    At least she ultimately fell asleep… And 40 minutes (while probably totally torturous) isn’t SO bad! Sounds like you guys will be great and you’ll be sooo happy when she’s adjusted. The ability to sleep independently and self soothe is a great skill to teach babes!
