This morning, I took the gate off of Nate's crib, and effectively turned it into a small bed. It's been something we've been meaning to do for awhile now, but obviously we were in no real hurry to implement it. I guess you could say we had thoughts of him falling out of bed, or getting up in the middle of the night and wandering around the house unsupervised.
Nate seemed pretty excited that he could get in and out of bed by himself now. He christened the 'new' bed by pulling off all his toys, pillow and blankies. Then he climbed on and proceeded to jump on the mattress, yelling 'I can bounce!'.
Needless to say I was a little nervous when it came time for his nap. But there was no bouncing. He just climbed on and lay down and said goodnight. I'm not sure how long he napped for, I had to leave for work. I wonder if he woke up and let himself out of his room?
I half expected to come home this evening and find him downstairs watching TV or eating a granola bar!
But I was only met at the door by Snoopy.
I guess we really didn't need to worry.
