We took Kelsi's Binky away just over a week ago. Actually, she just decided she didn't want it anymore. The fear I had of sleepless nights was only in my head thank goodness. HOWEVER, Kelsi will NOT take a nap and hasn't since she decided she didn't want her Bink anymore. I even OFFERED her the Bink one day because she REALLY needed a nap. She just said "NO! and pushed it away. She doesn't cry and fight me putting her down, she just talks, laughs, squeals & plays for 2 hours and then I get her up. Around 4-5pm she is overly tired and isn't at her best self. The only time she napped this week, was 15 minutes in the car when we were running errands late one afternoon, and then for about an hour (30 minutes in the car and 30 minutes on the couch) on another late afternoon. I don't like this. She's 2 and still needs her naps. Maybe not everyday, but at least a couple times a week! I hope she snaps out of it soon. ANYWAY, since she likes to play in her crib, she has decided that she needs more than the one allotted stuffed animal and book that John and I give her.






She has done this a few times this week without my knowledge, until I go to put her down. What a stinker!!

HAHAHA! Ashley fills her crib up with toys and books before wanting to get in it to go to sleep. Then before actually falling asleep, she throws it all out of the crib. Kids are funny.

The saddest day in the whole world is when your child doesn't want to take a nap anymore. This is about the age that my Josh stopped napping. :( He still has quiet time but no sleeping. Good luck!

At least she stays in her crib. Ava did the same thing, not taking naps, but she started climbing and jumping out of her crib at 15 months old. She would hurt herself, cause it was a long way down, so at 18 months I made it a toddler bed for her saftey. She has never napped since, except in the car. Bummer. Good luck!

I had a REALLY hard time finally deciding to let go of naps with Kimball...luckily for me - he was 5. Hopefully she decides to enjoys naps again soon (for your sanity if nothing else). Good luck!
