One thing Lyric did NOT want to do was take naps. She would fight taking them so hard - not physically - just with keeping her eyes open and by sitting up instead of laying down. Her eyes would get so heavy and her head would start to nod and then she would jerk herself awake again. When I thought she was finally asleep enough I would try to lay her down so she could sleep better. But when I did... she would wake up and start to cry - she would be mad. I should have learned the first time, but time and time again she would fall asleep the same way and I would try to lay her down again. There were only a few times where I was able to lay her down without her waking up and crying. Now we have her taking naps in her own bed upstairs in our bedroom. She has transitioned really well. When she wakes up from her nap she will call out to whomever took her to her bed to tuck her in and read her a story. It's really sweet to hear her call out for Tyler, Laurel or Carissa.
P.S. I finally did it! I got caught up on all the posts I wanted to write about on our journey to Lyric! (And it's only been 6 months since we've been home with her!) Now I can start posting some updated photos and let everyone in on some really exciting news that our family has! Any guesses? I need to switch the format of the blog around a bit also.
