My Little Monkey
First off, to my family- Sorry, this is a repeat. I have been talking about this all day and you no doubt have heard it probably at least two times each. That being said:
This morning I awoke to Reese's happy little chatter. Since she wasn't yelling for me to come get her, I dozed off again. Next thing I know, I am awoken a second time, but this time to the most sickening thud immediately followed by Reese crying. I jumped out of bed and ran as fast as I could to her room because I knew exactly what had happened--Reese dove out of her crib! There she was in a little heap on the floor dazed and crying. Keep in mind my baby is only 13 months old! WAY too young to be figuring out how to escape from her crib! I swooped her up and held her tightly and she calmed down almost immediately. Apparently her little stunt only scared her, thank goodness. As soon as Brad came into the room to see why I frantically yelled his name, Reese wanted him and snuggled him for a good 10 minutes letting herself be reassured that she was indeed alright.
This little happening today scares me--I would like to believe that Reese is just top heavy and being the very tall girl that she is, leaned over the rail causing her top half to tip her over and out. I am afraid that is not the case, and that she is instead a "spirited child" like her brother. In any case, it seems I need to invest in a crib tent. Yes, I have to cage my child in--appropriate since 3/4 of the time I feel like a zoo keeper to my little monkeys anyway.
