Two To One

I had a terrible week last week. Campbell has cut four new teeth and we went through the dreaded wonder week. Talk about a bad combo. I thought I was going to lose my mind more than a dozen times. Plus, this merging to one nap game is no joke. I hate it. So three things were stacked against me which made for one horrible, no good, very bad week.
So far this week is off to a much better start. And suddenly this little fussy monster has turned into a lovable cuddle bug who, out of nowhere, requires being rocked to sleep. I haven't rocked Campbell to sleep since he was about 6 months old so this is a nice little change. I've tried to hold him and rock him in the past but he always wiggles in my arms and just wants to be put in his crib. Campbell sleeps with a pillow in his crib now and he LOVES it. He used to be all over his crib while he slept but now he keeps his head on his pillow all night long. I find it really adorable especially when he puts his arm under his pillow because that's exactly how I like to sleep!!!
This whole moving from two naps to one has really been quite the disaster. I just feel like we have no routine whatsoever and everyone in this family loves routine and predictability. I was such a major, huge fan of Babywise and Babywise Part Two so today I decided to head over to Barnes and Noble and get Toddlerwise. Apparently a major portion of the book is dedicated to moving from two naps to one which makes me feel better. I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds it complicated. I'm hoping this book will help make this transition much more smoothly. So far it's a very bumpy road and I think Campbell is ready for me to figure out what to do.
