I have to admit I'm incredibly jealous of the energy this kid has! Mathew runs around the house all day long!
The Thursday before Easter Mathew came down with a virus that turned into Croupe. We had a big day planned Sunday so I really wanted him to rest and get better. Saturday I put Mathew down for a nap, of course he had a movie going and was very quiet so I thought he was sleeping...About an hour after I put him down I hear him cry, it was a different cry so I wasn't sure what the heck was going on. I walked in his room to check on him and find his leg is STUCK between the bars in his crib! Of course I totally panic and call James, what am I supposed to do?!?!?!? I remember the full house episode where DJ is babysitting and the kid got his head stuck in the staircase, but butter is SO not going to do the trick here. I ran downstairs and grabbed my tool box and tried to pry the bars apart so I could push his leg out, I don't know how the heck he got his chunky leg in there but his knee was stuck and wasn't about to go anywhere! The whole time this is happening James is on speaker, Mathew's crying, I'm crying James is wondering what the hell is going on...so I make the decision to just break the bar off...I snapped the bar as much as I could and pushed Mathews leg out. Mathew had a couple scratches and bruises around his knee but he was out YAY!
So after Mathew and I settle down from the main event, Mathew lays on my bed and falls asleep, reality sets in and I'm like "oh no, now where is Mathew going to sleep?!?!" He's not ready for a toddler bed, how the hell do I even make this crib into a toddler bed??? Well luckily I found some pictures of the crib online and figured out how to change make the crib into a toddler bed. I was really worried he would fall out of the bed the first night or get up and get into trouble in the middle of the night but he didn't at all! He did great! I went out and bought a safety rail a couple days later and it's been wonderful! He LOVES being able to get in out of bed by his self, and to celebrate I got him a Cars pillow!!! I never realized how fast kids grow up! I can't believe he was ever a baby! It's a lot of fun though and I wouldn't trade it for the world!
