I spy

Supposedly, at some point Katelyn is supposed to gradually change her naps so she naps by the clock instead of by time.  By that I mean at some point she is supposed to take a nap at a certain time (say, 11:30) instead of an hour and a half after she woke up from her last one. Does that make sense?

The problem is, how am I supposed to know when those specific times are? Well, I’ve heard the best thing to do is track when she goes down for a nap then average that out to figure what time of day she should go down by the clock. The problem with that is, I know she’s in her bed but not sleeping for half of that time. So figure that one out without going to check on her every five minutes and wake her up by doing so. Not so much.

So last night Devin set up out night vision webcam. Now I can spy on her all I want and actually see how long it takes her to fall asleep and when she actually wakes up.

This was her five minutes ago on her way out.


And this is her now. Sleeping away.


It’s a little hard to tell because of the quality of the video and the night vision effects but I’ve got it figured out now. And apparently perfect timing too–down without a peep. This could work.

  1. Ok so looks like a doll. Literally. Let me know how finguring out her nap times goes. I honestly have no idea when Hailey should be sleeping. If she seems tired I put her down. If she fusses more thatn 15 mintues then she wasn’t ready. I really should put more thought into it.

  2. Okay holy crap how much did that cost?? Dev, you’re crazy. And Brit, I don’t know if it’s just me (but all the other moms I know have the same prob) but Macy STILL doesn’t go down at the same time everyday- it still depends on when she gets up- and you know I am a nazi about sced. I can’t control when she wakes up, unless I woke her up and who the freak would EVER do that!!=)
