Run Away Toddler

The Kid has recently taken a liking to climbing on things.  Which means he is getting into everything… and I mean EVERYTHING!  He can climb onto our chair…

He can climb onto the couch with out a problem…

So Hot Mama and myself have wondered what will be next?

It will only be a matter of time before he can start crawling out of his crib.   Just the other day I caught him holding himself on the edge of the couch with his arms and then using his legs as leverage on the ottoman almost pulling himself parallel with the floor.  So that means that the time when he can do that in his crib is probably not to far down the road.

Which then means that we will need to put the toddler rail on the crib.  Then of course the question is how do we keep the Kid in his crib at that time?

    It is so much fun to see them grow. My 5 & 7 year old boys are learning so much and growing. It is so cool to see.
    The pciture with the baby and the remotes is hilarious.

      He always takes the remote and try’s to change the channel on me.

    oh no! You don’t put on the toddler rail, you put him in a crib tent. My daughter was blessed with really long legs and was able to get out very early and I made the mistake of putting her in the toddler bed. I put her back in a crib with a crib tent and she now sleeps through the night, whereas in the bed, she would get up between 3 and 10 times a night. Because she could.
