Too Fast

These kids of mine are growing up too fast!

About a week before Thanksgiving, Corbyn figured out how to get in/out of Peyton's crib. It didn't take him long at all to figure out that he could also get in/out of his own crib.

He could get out safely, so we weren't in a huge hurry to make his crib a big boy bed. When we took the side off, Corbyn thought it made a pretty nifty ladder.

Most nights he is so exhausted from not taking a nap during the day, he crashes the instant we put him to bed. If he does take a nap (happens about once a week), he might get out of bed once or twice, but usually he does great. I'm so glad we didn't force him out of his crib when Peyton was born! The transition from crib to bed has gone so smoothly - I know it's because we did it on his timing and not ours.

I was worried that he would fall out of bed, so I put our pack 'n play matrress next to his bed to soften the fall if he did. If he has fallen out, he hasn't made a big deal out of it. One night when I checked on him, I found him like this. Too cute!

The same day we took the side off Corbyn's crib, we got out the dreaded baby gate for Peyton. It seems like it took Corbyn a long time to figure out how to crawl and when he did he didn't have particularly good form for quite some time. Not Peyton, she just knew how to do it. At 6 1/2 months, she was already crawling like a pro.

(Excuse the naked little stripper boy in this video. Rest assured, you can't see anything or I wouldn't be posting it!)

She likes crawling, but her favorite thing ever is pulling herself up to standing.

She loves crawling over to the tub and watching Corbyn take his bath after I've wrestled her diaper on her.

Actually she just loves watching him do whatever it is he's doing and standing up makes that so much easier for her!

We're betting she'll also be walking before Corbyn did and he was an early walker at 11 months. Only time will tell, but she's definitely headed in that direction.

So would someone tell these kids to stop growing up so fast! Please!
