Yesterday we finally gave in and admitted that our little girl is growing up. That is to say, we were scared out of our wits to discover her doing this:
so we promptly got on that crib-lowering thing.
Isn’t it strange how one day they just start standing?? I couldn’t believe it. I have found her on her knees looking over the edge of her crib at me for a few mornings now, but when we saw her finally standing, my paranoia took over. Obviously she’s not only standing, but hanging out over the edge, so that was a problem.
Lowering the crib was pretty simple. It took about 15 minutes, and Vera thought it was hilarious that she could crawl over her the mattress on the floor while we worked on it.
She also thought it was pretty funny to harass me during the process.
We decided to just go ahead and lower it all the way. It might be lazy, but I didn’t want to have to deal with it again, and this way I know she’s not going anywhere… muahahaha… (that’s my evil I’ve-trapped-you laugh). Just some unscrewing, adjusting, and screwing back in.
And now baby beast can’t fall out.
So I’m feeling much less paranoid and much safer today. But still a little in shock at how fast our beastlet is growing. I guess that’s what kids do. Pretty soon she’ll be packing for college. Ok, now I’m just exaggerating. Hope you had a great Monday!
