Today Isaac is 1.5 years old and even though he is not the best sleeper, he has made a huge improvement. However, myself, on the other hand, have developed some bad sleep habits. As a result of all my napping back in the day, when Isaac goes down for his afternoon nap now, I find myself needing to take a nap too! Honestly I don't know if I need the rest or not but there's this fear in me that if I don't take a nap, I won't have the energy to face the second half of the day when he wakes up. I find that my sleep associations have a powerful effect on me. If I were to lie on my bed for a few minutes, I can almost guarantee that I will fall asleep even though I wasn't sleepy in the first place.
Anyway, when I return to work 5 days next year, there goes my afternoon nap :( oh how I will miss you!
