While we were in Palm Harbor, the girls learned how to climb out of their travel cribs. The room they were staying in wasn't baby proofed so we had to teach them to stay in the cribs. This took some discipline but eventually they did stay in long enough to nap well and sleep at night. Once they were awake, they just climbed out and knocked at the door for someone to come get them.
The very first morning we were back in Raleigh, Stephen and awoke to the familiar sound of them knocking on their bedroom door. They had no trouble climbing out of their cribs here at home after all that practice down in Florida. It was time. We spent our first morning home, transforming their cribs into toddler beds, super baby proofing the rest of the room so that they could be free to roam when they were not supposed to be in bed. We tried to find some bed rails to keep them from falling out but were unable to find any that fit, so we just put their little beds against the wall and prayed that they wouldn't roll out. So far they have fallen out once or twice but only in the early evening before they are in a sound sleep. No waking up at night, they nap well.. it has been a much easier transition than I thought it would be. We got them pillows and have tried to get them to let us put blankets over them but they still like to sleep on their soft with no covers so... I say have at it!
Suddenly I wish I had more pictures of them standing in their cribs in the morning.
