As others already responded, I had nothing to do with this (and neither did DH). It was all P. He normally woke up at 7-8am and napped at 10:30 and again around 3. One of those naps was a 2 hour, the other was 40 min-1 hour. Now he will nap around noon for two hours and then not again. However, last night he FELL ASLEEP IN THE HIGHCHAIR WHILE EATING OS!! at 6pm and we were screwed. No bedtime until 11pm, up again at 7:30.

We've tried goat milk once but it is really expensive (even with Dh's co-op discount) and made her smell bad but I should really try it again.
I love you fireant! You're such a special woman, and a wonderful mother.
Also, are you guys still vegan? I just want to say, I respect that you are mostly vegan but don't hestiate to give your baby what she needs, even if it's animal milk.

But now she acts a little drowsy in the morning, but when we attempt a nap, she will nurse and flail around and then pop up refreshed without sleeping. So we're just going with it. It depends on the day. I expect it will be several more weeks before she really finds her groove. I have heard they typically drop to 1 nap around the time walking starts.
really? DH is all "why isn't P walking yet!" Last night he told P he was officially not an early walker.
: I said, lay off! He'll walk when he wants to. Apparently DH read somewhere (he read something child related!
) that when a kid is a super fast crawler (as P is) they are later to walk.

Now she wants her nap about 4 hours after she wakes up (9am-ish), sleeps about 2.5 hours and goes to bed at 830-ish. And heaven help you if you try to get her to have another nap.
A fringe benefit to this, for us, is that she's so exhausted by the time she will go to bed, that all I have to do right now is lay her in her bed and sit in the chair next to her and she goes right to sleep. I tried that 2 weeks ago and she wailed.
: except Philip still nurses then rolls over and falls asleep by himself.

he would love another baby, just doesn't want to plan for one if that makes sense. and wants to try and prevent one. if it's meant to be, it'll happen. that's my story and i'm stickin to it.
court was postponed. not sure 'til when.
Well that's better than my DH's worries-- that he'll be "too old" and he won't be able to get me pregnant anyway.
ok on to read more and respond more.
Korin, thanks for your response about DH's stupidheadedness regarding money.
