A Tutorial

...on how to get a grumpy and tired 4 month old to relax and take a nap.

...take her outside while making no mention of the constant wrinkling and furrowing of her forehead and eyebrows...
...give her some time to play and practice her new skill of rolling back to front and front to back. Do not comment on how slow the rolls are getting, or that she is "resting her eyes" every couple of minutes...

...she will soon choose her back...

...because this is her ceiling and it is so pretty...

...then, one big sigh, one big yawn, and half roll on to her side...

...and she is in dreamland. Of course, she wasn't tired.

The outside ALWAYS works for Aiden too. When he gets way to worked up or is overtired we go for a walk or stand on the patio. Works like a charm.
