Aren’t you too young for these escapades?

We just finished morning treatments, and since he still isn’t feeling 100% (he has a head cold) I laid him down earlier than normal for his nap. As usual, he sat and talked to himself & his stuffed animals for awhile…and then I heard it…


What the? I didn’t think much of it at first since he tends to throw his toys out of his crib before falling asleep. And then the cries started.

I ran to the room & realized…he wasn’t in his crib, he was right on the other side of the door…

Well…it’s official. Gavin got out of his crib today. Or should I say tumbled out? Needless to say his crib is on the very lowest level now, where you’d set it for the toddler bed, but we will be leaving the railings up.

Because, at 14 months I’m pretty sure he’s too young for that kind of escapade and far too young to have the ability to get in and out of bed on his own.

Luckily, no apparent bruises or trauma from his fall…and I’m trying to convince him that he still needs his morning nap so he can start feeling better soon…

Boys will be boys.


  1. Oh man, That's no good! We put Rylee in the toddler bed at about 9 months and then quickly switched to a queen sized bed at 13 months - She wasn't sleeping very well in the crib/toddler bed but has slept through the night almost every night in her queen bed now - She just climbs out in the morning and comes in to wake me up! :) It's crazy to think how big our babies are getting.
