Last night at 1:45am I heard.... "click" the sound of the baby gate. G asked if I heard it, I told him I would go make sure one of the dogs hadn't gotten past the gate and into Jonas's room. I climb out of bed, pass through the living room and I am greeted with, "Oh"... "Hi Mommy". My child climbed out of his crib, left his room and made his way past the gate. I yell to G, "we have bigger problems than dogs in the boy's room!" I swooped Jonas up and went back into his room. He had thrown his blanket and pillow on the ground. I can only imagine he had the foresight to use it as a landing pad. G made his way into the room. I swear he almost looked proud. He said, "show me how you did that". So I put Jonas back in the crib and he proceeded to lift his leg onto the top rail and hoist himself up. HMPFH. I seriously thought I had another year of this crib thing.
Luckily we have a pack n play set up in our bedroom for hasty storage of a toddler. We got him to fall asleep pretty quickly.
So, today I purchased a toddler bed and another baby gate. I have no idea how he is going to react to this bed. I am going to super duper toddler proof the room. I'll let you know how it goes.
