Ali and Sammy are 15 months old now! Wow. I know, I know, every mom always says it. I always say it. But where is the time going? I can’t believe my little tiny babies are well on their way to becoming toddlers. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t sad to see the baby days fading. They are hard days, but I love the sweetness of being able to hold and cuddle my babies. Now that they are turning in to toddlers they are all go, go, go!
Getting older means we are making some adjustments to the schedule. The biggest change is the slow march to dropping the morning nap. My kids seem to be on the higher end of sleep needs. Ben held on to his morning nap most days of the week until he was almost 18 months old. Ali and Sammy are still needing the morning rest time. The average age to transition to one nap is actually from 15-18 months, so this is normal. The length of that morning nap is slowly getting shorter. The exact timing of it can float a bit depending on what else is happening that day. But it is always within the same two hour chunk of time, and it’s working for us. That’s the goal after all, to find what works for your family.
