Woops!

For the past couple of weeks, Taylor and I have discussed how we really need to lower William's crib before he learns how to climb out. He's pretty mobile (as in, never STOPS moving!) and we knew it was only a matter of time before he fell out. The plan was to lower it this weekend.

We were a couple of hours too late! I put William down for his morning nap on Saturday. When he woke up, Taylor was on his way into his room to get him when we heard, Thump. Followed by crying. Taylor found him on the floor next to his bed. Thankfully, William seems fine. We think he somersaulted out and landed on his bottom or back, not his head. He cried for only a minute or two and then was on his way again. (Nothing will slow him down!) There are no bruises and I've kept feeling his head for tenderness but there's none. I am pretty sure I was more traumatized than he was. Needless to say, we lowered his crib - to the lowest setting possible - right away and now William uses the railing to pull himself up and walk in circles around the crib when he should be sleeping. I am sure it's just a matter of time before he learns how to haul himself out of the crib again.

Because William is go, go, go when he's awake he tends to crash when he naps. I am so hoping that soon he'll crash at night too and stay asleep. His nights are getting better, he's only up two or so times a night, but he use to sleep through the night and I know he can do it again! I've been lax about sleep training but I think we better hurry up and do it before he learns how to walk. Which the doctor told me he'll probably do in the next couple of weeks! AHHHH!

Here he is napping with Daddy...
