Macy not napping...

Has turned into a good thing!

It was hard to adjust to having a very active 3-year old around me all day long. She needed constant attention and I was unable to institute any "quiet time" or "read to yourself time." Plus, she was complaining that she was tired a lot so she was cranky.

We are now past all that and are in a happy place. She is getting much better at playing by herself and doesn't need me by her every second. She has gotten used to not napping and isn't cranky (at least not for that reason). She will now help me put dishes away or make snacks/dinner. I am actually enjoying the extra time I get to spend with Macy. She is very sweet and kind.

The best part of all is her going to bed at 7 p.m.! And she is exhausted at 7 so the whole going to bed routine is very easy now. I know it's only one hour earlier than her previous bedtime of 8, but it feels so much earlier. Especially now that it's still light outside at 7. I feel like I have plenty of time to get things done at night and still have time to have "me" time. I love the place we are at now. Anna goes to bed flawlessly at 7 too. They both sleep in until at least 8, sometimes 9 a.m. This morning I woke up to hear Anna laughing because Macy had climbed into the crib with her. They are the cutest little girls and we are so spoiled with them! They love each other so much and I love them both so much!

I want to squeeze little Anna to pieces! They are both the cutest. So glad your nighttime is getting more peaceful
