"Ain't about what's waiting on the other side, it's the climb..."

PJ's new thing has been climbing out of his crib! It came out of nowhere- one day he was rattling the door when I thought he was safe, sound and asleep. After that, he became a climbing machine!

That nerd.

As good as he is at climbing, the constant in and out isn't a good thing. He hasn't fallen or hurt himself at all- in fact, he's pretty stealth! Still, his being hurt isn't something I want to risk, so tonight is his last night in his crib. Tomorrow, Pete and I will convert it to a toddler bed and transition him into sleeping that way. It's time. On Christmas Eve, he climbed out and then couldn't get back in so he fell asleep on the floor! Today, he did the same thing, but instead of the floor, he fell asleep in his rocking chair:

It was actually really. stinking. cute. Nonetheless, it's time, and I have only cried once.


So far.

It's my baby's last night in his crib. {tear}

Oh my! How long did you cry when you were converting the bed? It is a much bigger step than taking down the diaper changing table. What a big boy!

My son never crawled out of his bed, but I just know my daughter's going to. She's got that mischievous streak in her. Luckily she doesn't quite have the agility yet, but I know its going to happen soon!
