C and Sleep

Cecilia has traditionally been a great sleeper at night from early on. Napping, on the other hand, not so much. She hasn't been terrible, but she's not particularly consistent. She is getting less and less consistent as she gets older, almost like she just doesn't need a nap every day. Sometimes she will play in her room happily for 2 hours before falling asleep. Then I have to wake her up otherwise she will sleep past dinnertime and not fall asleep until very late at night.

So anyway, part of why she won't fall asleep at naps is because she is having way too much fun. She has nothing in her room except two empty dressers and a bed, but somehow that's enough to keep her highly entertained. At nap time, in the morning, before bed and even sometimes in the middle of the night she will be in there having the time of her life. She will be in there laughing hysterically and we could not figure out what she was doing, so we figured she must be playing with friendly ghosts or something.

This morning, she was at it again. Laughing hysterically and having the time of her life. I quietly went to the door and solved a little mystery. She doesn't have ghosts that are making her laugh (not for sure anyway). She has a bed. She sleeps on the bed about 50% of the time as far as I can tell, but I would be money that she is using it every single day for this:

She moves her bed all over the place and gives herself enough room to flip over the headboard.

It is so funny how different she is than Simon with her lack of fear and love for adventure. We took both of the kids swimming the other day and she would have just walked right in the deep end without a second thought. She was mad that we weren't letting her swim on her own too. She thought FOR SURE she could swim all by herself (gotta love her confidence?!). When Simon was younger I remember taking him into my sister's pool and Simon literally said, "this makes me nervous" while clinging on for dear life.

I love seeing her personality continue to emerge. I so wonder what kind of kid she will be when she's Simon's age!
