The Nap Debate

Gabriel has opted to no longer nap. We (the parents) have fought hard the last few days to get him to nap, but it hasn't happened this week. SO...perhaps it's time to give up the fight.
Here's a picture from yesterday, when Matt told Gabe that if he laid on the couch for 5 minutes with his eyes closed, he could watch a movie. This is his version of "eyes closed". Cheeseball.

Today we didn't even attempt to have him nap. He had quiet time for a bit and then continued on with his day. This is our non-napping child at dinner-time.


And another shot...he was completely asleep and wobbling all over. It was hilarious!

BUT...it makes me think that he is NOT ready to stop napping.

I just went through that with Eli. Ended up happy with a nap from 1:30 to 3:30. The late nap time let him get tired enough and the early rise keeps him ready for bed at 9pm. Hope you can find the right timing for Gabe.
