Who Needs a Nap?

Daniel needed one, that's who! 

He's been fighting them for days his whole life, but ever since last week's 9 month well visit, the pediatrician said it is completely necessary that an over-active baby like mine :) gets at least one nap a day.  I guess you can imagine what that means for me...  I have a fighter on my hands, and he has realized what I'm doing each day when I take him to his room.  It honestly begins an all-out war between Daniel, sleep, his crib, and me. 

However, after minutes or an hour of crying, Daniel will take a nap.  It usually looks something like this:

Did I mention that Daniel fights sleep in such a fierce manner that he falls asleep either standing, resting on his knees, or sitting straight up?  I know it's heart-breaking...

But, a mom's gotta do what she's gotta do, and, he slept for an hour today!  Only bad part is, most of the time, Daniel's face ends up looking like this quite often...

Isn't he precious?!
