My baby, my twenty-something-month-old baby, is an escape artist. It started with the pack and play at my mom's house. She can scale the side of that thing like she's Spider-Man. I had hope that the crib would be too much for her, however I was delusional.
She did that within 25 seconds of being in her crib for the first time in five and a half weeks.
We did the unexpected and tore down her crib. It was a drop side that didn't turn into a toddler bed (I suspect because of the drawer underneath). I found a toddler bed on CL and purchased it yesterday. It has some minor cosmetic work to be done (read: gold spray paint) before I can assemble it and put it in her room.
Last night was the first night of her sleeping free. It took her a few minutes to find a comfortable place to sleep, but ultimately she found it. On the floor. Right next to her bed.
This is where she surprised me. Not only did she fall asleep on her own she slept! And she slept until 8:30! She's amazing and growing so fast. I can't believe in a few months we will be celebrating her second birthday.
