I posted these in my journal but for those who aren't followers, here are pics of Abigail's first birthday party!
We had a wonderful time today at Abigail's first birthday party!! Everything was great and came together so well despite her just coming over an illness and my being on crutches! Enjoy the pics!
Miss Abigail refused to take an early nap before her party and fell asleep on Great Granna's lap just as the festivities began...
After her rest, she ate a lunch of 'duck feed' (Kix cereal and Honey Nut Cheerios), Ducks & Cheese (Mac & Cheese), Cheese & Quackers, & Hot Ducks n Beaks (Hot dogs & buns), followed by a refreshing Quacker Cooler (water bottle) **Yes, I went ALL OUT for this, lol
Then we had music time with Mister Q Live which was a huge success!
Even the adults enjoyed listening to his tunes!
Then it was time for SMASH CAKE! She was a bit confused why everyone was singing and staring at her though...
Out of curiosity, how many hours per day are your LOs sleeping? (Including night time and naps) I read online that the average is 13.25 for 13 month olds. My friend's twins sleep 14, Abigail seems content with only 12-12.5 and has been horrible about going to sleep lately. It took me well over an hour last night to get her down to bed whereas it used to take only 15ish minutes. She's also barely napping. Yesterday she was up for 12 hours and only took one 30 minute nap. I'm trying to figure out a schedule that works for her so we can stick to it but it's so hard to determine how many hours of sleep are enough to keep her happy but not so much that she fights sleep as badly as she has been. She won't even let me drive in the car to get her to sleep anymore! I'm exhausted and going crazy!
So, how many hours per day are your 12-13 month olds sleeping? How many naps per day? What's their regular schedule?
She usually goes to bed at 8 and gets up at 4 for a bottle (she hasn't given up her bottle yet) and will lay back down until 630/7. She stays up until 11/12 and takes a nap for 2 hours. She refuses a second nap now. So she gets about 13 hours, some days a little less.
