Is Nap Time Over?

It seems that whenever I put something in writing about Quinn's sleep habits, they change. So we'll see how this goes.

It appears that afternoon naps may be over. I've noticed that generally it takes much longer for him to fall asleep at nap time (30 minutes vs 5 minutes). If he does nap then he's not really for bed time until 10 or 11 pm or later and again it takes him a long time to fall asleep. For the past 4 - 5 days we have been skipping naps and bed time is a breeze. In fact, it's 7:15 right now and he's in bed and asleep. Wowsers! And he'll sleep through the night and probably not wake up until 8:30 am. Don and I are very much enjoying our evenings together. OK, the bad part is that I don't get a nap break during the day anymore. And, Q may doze off around 5 pm so I need to keep him active.

We'll go with the flow and see what happens. Quinn gave up his 2nd nap earlier than the average kid so we're not surprised about this.
