P’s napping schedule and the duration of her naps have changed in the last week. Instead of going down at 2pm and napping for an hour, she is falling asleep often as early as noon and then sleeping for two hours. This is throwing me off….in a good way. I love the two hour nap vs the one hour. However, getting sleepy at noon throws me for a loop because I don’t expect the crankiness that early in the day. And just because she’s sleepy does she realize she needs to take a nap. Although, P will say “I’m tired”. Oh how I love the use of words!
A few other little changes I’ve noticed. She’ll often say “I’m hungry” which really means I’m tired. And she’ll say “I need Mamma” which also means she is tired but wants to snuggle to fall asleep. I’m assuming this need of more sleep means more is developing in that brain of hers. Amazing and awesome! I’m sure this is all normal 2.5 year old changes.
