It's crazy to think we're leaving this schedule behind after almost nine months! I honestly loved the two nap days because it gave me a ton of flexibility to get things done during two significant chunks of the day. Luckily, Palmer has always been a good sleeper and we never had any issues with her napping two plus hours 2x day and still sleeping through the night.

Palmer’s First Birthday!
I can't believe my little baby is ONE! This past year has been filled with all sorts of baby firsts - breastfeeding, bottles, solids, crawling, new words - and it has absolutely flown by. I tend to be a realist so I went into motherhood with fairly modest expectations around the challenges that babies also present - sleepless nights, teething, blow outs, spit up, crying - and sure we experienced that all too but we definitely lucked out in the baby lottery with Palmer. She's fearless, independent, happy-go-lucky, stubborn, beautiful, curious and loving. She's the best thing that ever happened to us and I can't imagine our life without her.

I truly believe sleep in the early days is luck of the draw. Each baby is different - some are more inclined to sleep than others and there's no quick fix. Hopefully, over time, that can be corrected through patience, structure and routine but at this stage physical touch and ensuring the baby feels secure and comforted far outweigh schedules.
