Good Bye Morning Nap, I'll Miss You...

About three days ago the little one decided that she no longer needed a morning nap. The first morning after a lot of screaming and tears I think she did fall asleep for about 10 minutes. I thought to myself, it was just a fluke, she's only 9 months old maybe hubby slipped her some coffee? The next day I put her in the crib and watched hidden behind the door. She is bouncing up and down hanging onto the side of the crib screaming and crying. She wanted out! So after about 30 minutes I bailed her out. Five hours later she passed out eating her afternoon bottle and slept for about 2 hours. Today I tried for about 35 minutes but it was no use, she has decided NO MORE MORNING NAP! So back out of the crib until about a half an hour ago, I knew she was exhausted, yawning and rubbing her eyes, I put her down and watched from the doorway as she stood up and sat down for about 15 minutes until she finally...
passed out! Poor thing was so tired she fell asleep sitting up! Here's hoping she takes a long nap so I can get some things done around here! :)

Clearly, she gets her stubbornness from her mother!

Okay now I'm scared. My boys naptime is a sacred thing around here. Freedom! He sleeps in the morn for an hour and around 2:00 for up to two hours. I'm a few weeks away from nine months....say it isn't so.
