In the last couple weeks, Ethan has been rebelling against nap time. Every time we lay him down to sleep, he sneaks out of bed to play. After a few days of fighting with him to try and get him to nap, we decided to give up the fight. If he doesn't want to nap he doesn't have to.
Seeing the nap times go away made me very sad.
Not only do the missed naps mean I no long have "me" time, it also means my little baby is growing up. He no longer needs those extra hours of sleep to get him through the day.
But his missed naps and late night bedtimes have finally caught up with him.
Today he fell asleep in his buzz tent.
Seeing him sleeping reminds me of when he was a baby, and would nap most the day away in my arms. Some days I long for those days of cuddling together and watching this precious face sleep.
Although nap time will completely pass someday soon, his sleeping face will always remind me of those days.
