The other night, we put Chloe down for an evening nap, but after a couple of minutes we heard noises coming from her room. They weren't her usual going to sleep noises so we went in to check on her and this is what we found.
She thought it was so funny that she could pull herself up in her crib and that we couldn't do anything short of staying in her room and holding her down to keep her from doing it. As soon as we would put her down she would flip right over and pull herself up with a big smile on her face.
Ever since that nap, we can't get her to stay down...once this girl figures something out she doesn't forget it. For example, that very night she didn't want to go to sleep and we tried for hours to put her down. She finally went to sleep around 11 p.m., but around 1 a.m. I heard more noises in her room and guess what? She was standing up in her crib looking around and smiling in the dark. I put her back down and she once again fell fast asleep, but bright and early at 6 a.m. she woke up and by the time we went to get her, she had pulled herself up to take a look around again...it was a long night!
Needless to say, last night Aaron lowered the mattress in her crib so we don't hear any thuds coming from her room.
