Sandy - You had asked about nap advice. Since I took the advice about not letting Selin sleep in late on the weekends (no later than 6:45/7:00ish) she has been napping at home pretty consistenly. I also notice if I put her down a little later, closer to 2pm than 1pm, she naps a little better. At the sitter, she usually goes down around 1/1:30pm. Today she napped for almost two hours, something she hasn't done in a LONG time, but she was up at 6am and my parents were over today so I think she was just extra tired.
Carly - You can name your kid whatever you want! LOL I love foreign names as well, obviously as Selin's name is Turkish after my DH's heritage. I have an Irish family at my school and their kids' names are Mairead (girl, pronounced "ma-raid") and Tadhg (boy, pronounced "ty-gh"). Took me awhile to pronounce them correctly.
aw, thanks christine.
Grace- Hope you feel better.
