Up and Over

It took Vaughn

2 years, 9 months, and 19 days

to learn that she can climb out of her crib.


She scaled the crib wall yesterday afternoon during "nap" time. Funny, I'd always expect to hear a thud when she finally did climb out. Not the case. She appeared to stick the landing and what I heard was her door open, toys clanking together (tea pot & cups on a tray), and her footsteps.

Truth is, I'm ready to be done with the baby furniture. So is Justin. We thought about making the first step and take the side of her crib down so it turns into a toddler bed even before she tried crawling out. But then we sobered up and asked oursleves, "Why make things harder right now?" Seemed silly to do so.

I can handle her just having "rest" time in her room in lieu of naps. What would be tricky is the whole bedtime thing. I'm not ready for the fury to be unleashed.

So, we'll see. Maybe this was a one time fluke and she won't try it again. Maybe I'll be dismantling the crib later this week.

I'll keep you posted.

What's your story about kids and cribs?

  1. Hey Sis,
    Our conversation on Monday about this very same subject must have channeled through her while she was napping. How funny!!!
    Have a good day.

  6. That is great that she lasted that long in her crib. Hopefully it was a fluke and you will get a little more time with her in the crib. When Samuel started crawling out, after about a week we just changed his crib into a big bed. Hopefully she will think it is really cool to be in a big bed when you switch her and you won't have any bedtime issues.
