Nap no more?

After reading my Out on a Budget blog entry, several mommies asked me if Ethan does not nap anymore. The answer is unfortunately YES, he does NOT nap anymore these days :(
He needs to be extremely tired to want to nap. So you know why I WANT to be out at least twice a week. I need to get out or else I’ll be nuts tending after all his needs 24/7. 
The good side is, because he doesn’t nap he goes to bed early. He can go to bed as early as 7.30pm and sleep through the night :D Yesterday, he went to bed at 6.30pm and woke up at 7am this morning :)

I remembered when he was younger it was easy to make him nap even when we were out. Look at the picture below to see how he napped when we were out shopping :P Click here if you want to read about it.

Anyway, I don’t mind if he doesn’t nap as long as he keeps going to bed early. It gives me AMPLE of ME time to catch up on Darling and anything nice :P

Ethan fast asleep with his eye-shade and pacifier!
