Oh how I miss Baby Jail (a.k.a the crib)

A couple of weeks ago we moved Payton out of the crib.  Why?  Because we had to.  Little stinker could climb out waaaaay too easy and we have met far too many kids with broken arms from climbing out of the crib.
It.Has.Been.A.Nightmare!  I think we are getting less sleep now than when she was a colicky infant!  Oh the joys of parenting that Payton has added to my third trimester.  I think we have finally found a decent plan…so just hoping she cooperates.  Hahaha…a 2 year old following the rules…not likely.  Fingers crossed!
So…during the day now we play, play, play, and play some more.  Got to get this child tired, tired, tired!!

Cashing in on her reward for staying in bed at nap time...15 minutes of "Yo Gabba Gabba".  And this is why we don't let her watch much TV...she doesn't move a muscle while it is on.

Then there is this!  She did this massive slide a good 20-30 times, I kid you not!  Best night of sleep we have all had in 2 weeks!  Where can I buy one of these slides???!!

      Any good tips for the big bed?!

      • We have babyproofed his entire room. This does not, however, keep him from pulling ever article of clothing out of the drawers and books of the shelves. He has given up napping, refuses to stay in bed in the wee morning hours – and seems to have lost his baby sanity. 🙂 Naomi was much better about the the big girl bed. We got her a special night light and did a sticker chart/reward system for when she stayed in her bed at night. Keep me posted on any good ideas for me. Asher is totally different than Naomi was in every way!
