Somebody Come and Play

Today we went to the park. Doesn't she look lonely in this picture? Doesn't anybody want to play with me??

Then our friends showed up and the day was saved. Yay! We have THREE playdates this week! This is a good thing for both of us.

This is what her hair looked like when we were ready to leave. No, that's not lice, it's sand. She was covered in the stuff. Needless to say, she had a bath as soon as we got home.

We are having a hard time with naps these days. She lays in her bed, kicking the bedframe, calling for "Mooooommmmmmmmmmmmmyyyyyy", singing songs to her stuffed animals, etc. Today I went in twice to settle her back down. If I don't go in, she just gets louder and louder. Then I decided to go ahead and get some things done outside, since it didn't seem like she was going to go to sleep. While I was going in and out the door 50 times, moving furniture and using the staple gun, she finally fell asleep but only for about an hour (she's normally down for 2 hours). I am NOT ready to give up naptime. NOT AT ALL. I don't know what to do. Put her down earlier? Let her stay up later? Quit giving her all the crack and caffeine she can handle????
