Mini-Milestones of a Growin’ lil Girl

This week, our “baby” girl learned how to crawl out of her pack-n-play (which we were using for her to sleep in as a transition between crib & bed). One morning, she just walked right into our room and stood there smiling! Then next morning, I woke up to a cold finger and thumb grabbing a hold of my big toe. I just had to capture each step of how she managed to get out…& here’s what I got, in four easy steps:

1.) The angry drop-off

2.) A lesson in leverage

3.) Hurdle-hop

4.) The face of freedom

We actually put her down in her new big-girl bed (thanks to Mr. Paul’s generosity) around 8:45 that night, she would just play with her shutters or a book, and a few times would walk right out (greeted by a ‘pop’ on the hand) but yes, she did get to the end of her day around 10:20pm. She was so out by then, that neither the doorknob or the flash would wake her.our-sleeping-angel

Bye-bye binkie, bye-bye pack-n-play ~  just one last thing to cross off our list: diapers!
