Isn't this sweet

So Gianna has been sleeping in our bed for the past few weeks since she was sick a while ago. She had a high fever , so I felt more comfortable with her being in my bed. Well she got used to it quickly and I had to let her cry for a while in her crib. The other night I heard her crying and I went to pee before going in and getting her and she met me halfway. It scared the crap out of me because at first I thought. What is this midget doing coming out of my daughters bedroom! Tired, I scooped her up and put her in my bed. The next morning I thought maybe I was dreaming. Neither of my kids have ever climbed out of their crib before. The matress was practically lowered to the ground. I have many friends whose kids did this quite early, still my kids never had. So the next night I put her in the crib, thinking maybe it was a one time deal. Closed the door and listened to her bounce for a minute, a few seconds later she was coming out of her room. Well now that she's a danger to herself and until we find a solution like getting her a toddler bed. The solution pictured above seems to be working well. I think it's sweet . I might get another bed and put it in Hailee's room. If we're planning on having another baby we might as well leave G's room open. Not that a new baby would actually be sleeping in the room for a long time. Due to breastfeeding my kids don't usually try out their crib for about 7 months, maybe longer. Until then you can read on below about the effects of a toddler bouncing in her crib all the time.

That is so incredibly sweet! Our kids share a room, and it is precious--when they're sleeping, that is!

my girls are AWAYS scaring me like that in the hallway. ACK! Killer midgets on the prowl! We've been trying to get the girls to sleep in their own beds too and the closest we can come to is them sharing a bed but it still doesn't last! Not yet at least, I have hope. Great photo!

That is too cute. Maybe that's what I need to do with Beau. Weirdly enough, he just figured out how to crawl out of his crib two nights ago... nice, huh? eh....

LOL - Cute pic and cute story! :)

The solution is a cage.

Just kidding. Kind of. ROFL ;)

It's been so long since I experienced that. (Youngest just turned 5 a couple weeks ago.)

I know that when the boys were old enough for a regular bed but still little enough that we worried they would wander the house at night, we would close their door at night and put a baby gate in the doorway.

Eventually they learned to shove the gate down or climb over it, but it makes a good amount of noise which gives you a chance to wake up and get there before they go wandering around.
