nap strike, day 4

As anyone who has spoken to me on IM or has been following me on Twitter for the past few days knows that I have been suffering through a nap strike.  For example, yesterday MJ woke up at about 7 am and didn’t go to sleep until just before 9pm.  Seriously?  Remember, this is an 8 month old baby.  When I tried to put her down for her naps yesterday she spent the morning “nap” in her crib talking for about a half an hour before she got bored and yelled at me.  In the afternoon there was not even the hope of sleep.  As soon as I put her down she started in with her high pitched keening.  Ear shattering I tell you.  I gave up.  She won.  Mind you yesterday was day 3 of this particular behavior.  I wouldn’t mind so much of a sleepless MJ was a pleasant MJ.  Unfortunately if we are at home and she is not being overly stimulated during her hours of sleeplessness she’s a real… well, bitch.  Just like her mother.

I don’t know if she’s still working out issues from being on vacation or if she’s just decided that sleep is, in fact, for the weak.  What I do know is that I am not ready for her to refuse naps entirely.  Aren’t babies supposed to do two naps a day until around a year old and then settle into one a day.  I mean, I have friends whose toddlers refuse day time naps, but infants???

Oh please, let this just be a phase.
