Ella didn't nap so we were hanging out most of the day. I didn't even attempt to put her in her crib. She wanted to sleep on the floor but that failed. Earlier in the afternoon she said "I sleepy" and covered herself on the floor but that only lasted a second too.
She loves playing with her doll.
I knew Ella was so tired so I asked Dave if I could get him before 5 then he could work at home. I did not want to have to wake her to leave to pick him up or did not want her falling asleep in the car. We got McD's on the way home and Ella put her doll in the other high chair. She even struggled to get the tray for her. She kept giving her all her food.
Ella ended up staying up surprisingly late for no nap and tired Ella. She wanted to sleep in her bed versus the crib. She was getting all ready but then said something about falling so she wanted to sleep on the floor. We moved the pillows to the floor. She tucked in her doll and we tucked her in. But she got up and wanted to come out shortly after. Dave told her not to come out so she was knocking at the door. It was pretty cute. I let her come out and said we'd try again. Hilary and I were talking at my craft bookshelves so the sound was probably tough for her. I let Ella join us and she was so happy. She was helping get punches out and put them away.
Ella then wanted to try to lie in bed but with a little blanket barrier so she wouldn't fall out. She wanted to hold my hand. I was on the floor. But then she got up. She wanted to be on the floor. She kept moving around. Couldn't get comfortable. She'd nod when I asked if she was tired and would nod when I asked if she wanted to go to sleep. So we put her in her crib and she was asleep within 5 minutes. She kept not wanting to go in her crib though. We had to explain how the crib was OK and she can try her bed another night.
