My Favorite– In order to avoid taking a nap, Lyra will throw every binky, blanket, and pillow out of her crib, remove the sheet from her mattress, and then scream “MAMAAA”, OR she will just take off all of her clothes and then pee or poop all over her bedding, and then scream “MAMAAA.” It’s just soooo much fun and she knows mommy will come to her rescue. 😛 I’ve solved the diaper issue… she now takes naps with her diaper duct taped on. 😀

  1. I can’t believe what amazing progress she’s made! It gives me hope for Emerson! 🙂 And thanks for the light box post – I’m definitely sending that on to our vision therapist.
