Yesterday, Waylon climbed out of his crib. Head first. He is 15 1/2 months old.
Last night, Waylon and Vladimir both spent their first ever night in "big boy beds".
Though nobody slept in a bed.
Our cribs are the "convertible" sort that you can get these days. They go from crib to toddler bed to full size bed with headboard and footboard. So it was very easy for us to make the transition. All mom and dad had to do was take off the front panel and voila! Beds.
Vladimir began the evening sprawled out on the little IKEA couch in his room. Waylon thought he'd try the pillow on the floor in between the two beds. This seemed to work until about midnight.
Mom came in when she heard the noise. Vladimir had fallen from the couch to the pillows on the floor next to the couch. Waylon was swiftly changing positions on the floor.
Long story short, Vladimir had pretty bad cough and so went to mama and daddy's room to "smoke the pipe" (Adzentoivich-speak for the nebulizer). He ended up spending the night there. Waylon moved to the couch and spent the night, very bravely, all alone in his room.
In the morning, Waylon was on the floor, halfway under the crib wondering where the heck everyone else was.
It wasn't a bad first night - but maybe tonight someone will actually try sleeping in a bed...
