guess who decided at 19 months to climb out of her crib...in the dark...all by herself...without making a peep...and without injury??? i am guessing you are looking at those mischievous twinkling eyes above and have landed on one name: stella.
and you would be correct. we have entered the stage of big girl beds and no nap times on weekends. now that our little one can scale her crib in the dark hours of the night we have decided to take the railing off and make her a full-blown toddler bed, for her falling on the hardwoods just scares the crap out of us. all of this being said, it's a bit chaotic over here and we are going with the flow to best wiggle into a comfortable routine for all parties involved. and presumably, we are a bit more alert whist sleeping across the hall and consequently, are sporting some wicked dark circles under our eyes. i'm talking alerts as in sleeping with one eye open and ready for the door to creek open with a tiny tot and her extreme bed head standing there ready to climb on in for a stella sandwich. like you see below. because that has happened like 4 times already.

have any of your littles learned this not so wonderful trick of climbing out of their cribs?
