Big Changes

A couple weeks ago we put Lacey down for the nap and were cleaning up our house. I turned around to the most adorable little girl standing behind me. She was so proud of herself for being able to get out of her room by herself. We put her back into her bed, and sure enough she was out within a couple of minutes. This is one thing I wasn't really prepared for. She hasn't ever tried to climb out before, so I was hoping I would get lucky and not have to deal with her climbing out. We immediately dropped her her mattress down to the floor and we thought that solved the problem. 

A couple days ago she figured out how to climb out, even with the mattress a good 8 inches lower. We considered getting a tent to go over the top of the crib... those were like $200 so that went to the bottom of the list. We thought about maybe turning the crib around so the higher side wasn't against the wall anymore. We ultimately decided to see how she would do without the crib. I bought her a little teepee for her birthday just last week so we stuck her mattress in there and took down the crib. Turns out that was the best decision (knock on wood). 

I had to sneak in to see if she was actually sleeping on her bed or where she fell asleep

She is sleeping better now than she has been in the last few weeks. She doesn't try to get out of the bed, she doesn't cry, and she is sleeping really well. She loves being a big girl... maybe it's time to potty train?
