With the resurgence of naps we are also seeing the return to VERY early mornings. I realize that for some people 6am is a reasonable but that is simply not the case in our house. Brian and I are not really morning people and neither is Grace. Abigail, on the other hand, is one of those obnoxious people who bounds out of bed at 6am with a huge smile and more energy than I can muster after 3 cups of coffee. She spends every morning making the rest of us pay for the fact that we are not morning people. She asks a million questions. She pokes and prods and clings. She jumps and flits and twirls. It sounds cute but at 6am I want to put her in a baby cage until I am awake.
The funny thing to me is that we were not a terribly early household until the past few months. Early mornings are definitely the trade-off for keeping naps in place. It is a trade-off I am more than willing to make.
This morning she slept until 7am... it was a treat for the entire household. Kids sure have a way of continuing to change my "normal" on a daily basis.
