As some of you know this is what has been happening in our house for the last month...
He is the expert at climbing out of his crib! Every time I tell people this they are amazed and ask how he does it. Well I managed to capture it on video! He does it almost every time we go to lay him down. At first it wasn't to bad because he couldnt open his bedroom door and he would only climb out at nap time, but after about a week he figured out how to open the door and master climbing out even when it was dark in his room! He is one determined little boy! About 2 weeks ago we did out nightly routine with him and laid him down for bed. Skyler and I were just out talking in the kitchen and all of a sudden we hear nates door open! I was like "Nate, that better not be you coming out of your room!" We heard the door shut and he didnt make a peep! Ha ha! I went in there because I knew he would not be able to climb back in his crib and I was like "nate what are you doing...its nigh night time." He walked back over to his crib and stuck his hands up for me to stick him back in because he knew he was in trouble! Now every time he tries to open the door I say "nate, that better not be you coming out!" He shuts the door and just plays with his toys until he falls asleep on the ground.
We have finally decided its time to put him in a "big boy bed." I have been dreading this day, but now that he treats his crib like a bed I dont think its going to be a big ordeal to switch him over. Skyler's grandma has an extra twin bed she said we could have, so sometime this week we will go get that and make the switch. I am also dreading making the switch because I cant believe he is already old enough to be in a "big boy bed." Isnt he just a baby still!! It makes me sad to see him growing up so fast, but it is a lot of fun too! I love that I can be a stay at home mom with him! There is no greater job in the world!
