Not toddler beds yet, please!
We hit another milestone with the triplets this week. We took a little road trip to see my parents over the weekend, something we hadn't done in quite a while. At my parents' house, we have pack and plays for the babies to sleep in. Well, this weekend they learned that they can climb out of them, at least the girls did. It made for very little sleep over the weekend, and I have several very pitiful pictures of the girls with their hands and faces up against the glass of the French doors in their bedroom, looking outside at us.
On our very first night back in our own home, Kate realized that if she can climb out of a pack and play, she can certainly escape her crib. We heard a piercing scream, and when John tore up the stairs and into their room, he found Kate out of her crib with her head wedged in between the girls' cribs, which are perpendicular to each other. Truly terrifying to think how bad that could have been - luckily she wasn't hurt, just scared.
Of course, John immediately pulled out his tools and turned the girls' cribs into toddler beds. They really are too young for this, as they are not yet "instructable," but there was no other choice. I think they enjoyed their freedom a little too much, and here is a picture of what I found when I entered their bedroom the next morning:
This is going to make for a long week!
