Five on Friday

1. I was released from my calling as Compassionate Service Leader in our ward and called to be a Visiting Teaching District Leader. After having a more demanding calling, I feel a little like, that's all you want me to do? I only have 4 companionships I'm over (1 being my own and 1 being the companionship that visits me). I was in Compassionate Service for over 2 years (almost the entire time we've been in the ward), so I guess it was time for a change.

2. This week Corbyn has almost completely refused to take his naps.

On Monday he fell asleep on my run. I didn't think I'd be able to get him to take a nap later, so I left him in the stroller in the garage until he woke up.

On Tuesday he refused to take a nap when I put him in his crib at his regular time. I decided we'd go to the library, but before we even got halfway there I turned around and saw that he had already fallen asleep. So I drove home and moved him to his crib.

On Wednesday he was so exhausted that he actually took a nap in his crib at his normal nap time.

On Thursday he fell asleep on the way up to Orem to do some errands after refusing to take a nap when I put him down. And today he also refused. I turned on Toy Story and had him lay on the couch hoping he'd fall asleep, but I had no such luck.

I know he still needs a nap because he keeps falling asleep in the stroller and the car when he usually is able to stay awake with no problem. I'm completely at a loss as to what I should do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

3. Little Miss Peyton has started getting up in the crawling position. She isn't even 6 months old yet! Someone tell her to stop growing up so fast!

4. Yesterday Rog had a meeting up at the U about applying to the MBA/MHA program. It's hard to believe it's already time for that. When he graduated from BYU, it seemed like it'd be a long time before he would go back to get his MBA, but now it's almost here!

5. Tonight we had some of my friends from high school (Nate and Ann Edwards) over for dinner. Nate is at BYU getting a Masters in Engineering. They have a 3 year old and a 1 year old, so it  was kind of crazy with 3 kids running around. But it was great to catch up with them!

I remember lily went through a phase where naps were hard... Some days she would talk, cry, play in her crib for an hour or more before finally falling asleep. Stick to your guns, put him down for naps ( while you can still control him in his crib!) and he'll hopefully get over this refusing to nap phase!

Maybe you could tell him before you put him down for a nap that if he has a nap, he will get a sticker or a temporary tatoo and then consistently award him after his nap. I think they have sticker charts at Dollar Tree.

Let me know how it goes!
