Consistently Inconsistent

That’s how I would describe the sleeping habits of Sir Isaac.

Somedays he takes three short naps. Other days, two long naps. Somedays, it’s one short nap, one extra long nap. Somedays, it’s four half naps with a lot of fighting.

Sometimes, he’ll go 3 hours without a sign of tiredness. Sometimes, it’s one hour and he’s ready.

Sometimes, he puts his thumb in his mouth and goes right to sleep. Sometimes, he plays for a little while and then nods off. Other times, he screams bloody murder for 45 minutes (on and off, because i go in and check on him because I’m a wussy). Sometimes he tries all three (goes right to sleep, gets up and plays, then screams. or, plays, goes to sleep for a little bit, and then screams… you get the picture).

I can’t figure him out. It’s like a rollercoaster ride. I never ever know what to expect.

Here’s today’s schedule:
6:00 – awake.
6:30 – up and at ’em.
7:45 – down for nap. plays for awhile.
8:15 – asleep.
9:30 – awake.
1:00 – down for nap.
1:30 – screaming.
1:30 – 3:30 – many nap attempts for the crab. lots of screaming.
3:30 – goes to sleep easily.
5:00 – up.
7:00 – bed. scream. pick up. scream. rock. scream. scream. scream. i give up. he gives up. asleep at 7:30.
8:30 – scream. i pick up, lie back down. asleep again.

Just in case you wanted to know.
