Just before we left for Virginia, the moment I have been dreading arrived! Trey decided to escape his crib! I know... it's probably time to convert to a toddler bed, but I really, really don't want to! Here is how the morning went for me:
Every morning before I get into the shower, I check the baby monitor to make sure both kids are sleeping- which they were. I then hopped into the shower, and about 5 minutes later I hear a huge THUD. I am now terrified, and feeling helpless since I am in the shower and if someone has broken into the home, I can't protect us! I'm sure you are thinking that I have quite the active imagination, but this is what was going through my head. Next thing I know, Trey comes crashing into my bathroom holding his pillow. I was speechless! And I was wondering- how did he get his pillow out? That night, I was hoping this was a fluke, and prayed it wouldn't happen again the next morning. Oh, how wrong I was! Sure enough, the next morning, Trey woke up and decided to get himself out (the difference was, this time, I was watching in the monitor!). The other difference was that this time, it didn't go quite the same way, and Trey hurt himself in the landing. Since that moment, Trey has not attempted another crib removal on his own. I'm sure it will come again soon, but for the time being, Trey is patiently waiting for me to come get him in the morning.
While in Virginia, Trey actually slept in a toddler bed that my parents bought him, and he loved it, but I'm still not willing to make the switch here at the house yet. One day...
Trey also has begun differentiating between "Yes" and "No"- finally! Now, when I ask him if he wants something he can actually say No or Ya (he apparently has shortened the word yes, to ya). I love it!
His vocabulary is increasing in leaps and bounds, and his favorite phrase is "Hold You?". I'm pretty sure he is not asking if he can hold ME! He got this phrase from Doug or myself asking him if he wants "Mama or Dada to hold you?". Now, if he wants to be held, he comes over sayig "Hold you". I love the way his brain processes everyhting!
