Jillian and I went over to Bridgeway's Buck-a-Bag this morning and picked up some good stuff for her for this fall, a sweater for my husband, and a couple tops for me. All in one bag. Which means, the loot cost $1. Thanks for the tip on this Tammy! We then did some driving around and ended up at Babies 'R Us. Don't ask how that happened, but we slipped in to pick up a booster seat for the wee one. I'm not sure how we ever lived without one, but we bought this one and already used it tonight at a restaurant. I have a feeling it will be $23 well spent.
Unfortunately, Jilly fell asleep in the car before Babies 'R Us. Not for long, only about 15-20 minutes. After our shopping, we went to Chick-Fil-A for a big lunch, me hoping that a full belly would help her crash out good for that big afternoon nap when we got home. This was not the case. She "talked" in her crib for a good hour before I decided to lay down. Since she wasn't fussing, I was going to let her have quiet time for another hour while I caught a few quick zzzzzzz. Just as I was drifting off, I felt something around my hair/face. I figured it was my cat and opened my eyes. And there was my precious toddler's face looking at me. My first thought was that I was dreaming, my next thought was that perhaps my husband came home from working while I was sleeping soundly and got her up. But no, reality set in and I realized that Jillian, in fact, did climb out of her crib and come downstairs. Nice.
So now what? Do I wait and see if she does it again? Do I start baby-gating the door to her room just in case? Do we move her into a big girl bed? I was hoping to hold off the transition to a big girl bed off until we move (long story...we haven't found a house, but did find a lender
Tomorrow will be an interesting day. My stepson Josh turned the big 1-0 yesterday and we're having a
