Sandman On Strike

Guess who took a nap today for a whole 45 minutes in his crib?
When you become a parent you celebrate these small victories. Keegan had fallen asleep under his gym but as usual it was only for 15 minutes. Then I laid him in his crib where he remained wide awake and finally cried after 20 minutes. He had even stayed awake the whole time during our walk today. Just as I got him upstairs his eyes closed so I figured it was worth a shot. I know I can get him sleep 3 hours in his swing. But I have visions of him as a teenager and still needing to be rocked to sleep. Plus when I finally do have to enroll him in daycare it will be alot easier for everyone if he has some kind of schedule.
So I'll take the little signs of progress and daydream about the luxury of a baby who naps.
