A new bed

Olivia decided to do a bit of climbing on Thursday...right out of her crib!

She woke up from her nap, I opened her door and said "mommy will be right back" and all of a sudden I heard "thud" and the pitter-patter of little feet. And there she was -- standing in my room with a huge smile on her face. "Hi!", she said.

We figured it was only a matter of time before she figured out how to escape the confines of the crib...but it was still a bit of a shock.

I put her back in the crib and said "show mommy how you got out"...and without a moment's hesitation, she threw her legs over the side and PLOP!...she was out. It was rather hilarious to watch...she was so proud.

So that night, we converted the crib to the toddler daybed...and now we're just waiting to see if or when she is going to fall out. But at least if she does take a tumble, it's only a few inches to the floor...instead of a few feet from the top of the crib.

Sigh...my baby is growing up too fast!


  1. Traci, you might need one of these:


    Or, go to www.babiesrus.com and search for "Bed Rail."

    Good luck with that. Without the raised sides of Aron's bed, he would still be falling out of his bed.


  2. Thanks, Tori!

    Our problem is -- it's a daybed, and no one makes rails for a daybed (there's no box spring). She fell out twice Saturday night...but we have pillows on the floor..so no injuries.
