Our goal over break was to get Parker into a better nap schedule. There were days where he would only nap for a total of 20 minutes! Crazy, I know!
So we've worked on it and much to our pleasure we have made much improvement on the schedule...is it perfect? Nope, but at least it's a start.
This is Parker now. He has been taking 2 naps a day one between 8:30 and 10 ish for about an hour and then an afternoon nap between 1 and 3 ish for anywhere from 1-2 hours.
We've found that he likes sleeping on his belly which I know is a no-no with the doctors. However, we tried laying him on his back and still do flip him to his back when we see him like this, but he almost instantly turns over to his belly. There are even sometimes where he'll burry his head in the matress. That we're not such a fan of but he is sleeping better on his belly. He can fully lift his head up and roll from front to back and back to front so we're a little less anxious about the belly sleeping. He'll fuss occasionally during a nap but with "a pacifier adjustment" as Travis calls it, he'll usually go back to sleep for awhile.
Overall I'm pleased with the nap progress and excited to see if if continues when we go back to school in a few days!
On the helmet end of things. Dr. Elwood examined Parker today and said there was such a slight discrepency he didn't feel the need for us to get a helmet for Parker! Horray! We were totally not opposed to a helmet and in fact have some friends who recently used one, and were ready to use it if needed, but we are glad that that's one less doctor visit Parker will need to continue to make.
My National Board Paper is due in less than a week and I have a LONG way to go before mailing it out, so I should be using this time to write, proof, something! Enjoy the beautiful day!
