Get back in your bed!!!!

This post is all about my little girl who is growing up too fast. She finally lets us put her hair into little ponytails and likes when we brush it where as just a month ago we couldn't get near her hair. She loves to look at herself in the mirror. It's so cute.
Cute Melia! So here are some new things Melia is saying. Big truck, old milk, new milk, pizza, pease (please) mommy, Kiki, Mike, Brian, Jeni, Tay Tay, Mommy's house, where'd mommy go? big ball, big star, moon, pee pee, poo poo, chee (cheese), my bike, got it, diet coke (Nana can you explain that one??), Mine and no which are not my favs since they are said the most, yeah... She answers me yeah now. I can't htink of the others but she is saying more and more and she tries to repeat what you ask her to.
What a sweet face, right? This sweet face gets into so much mischief. Yesterday evening Dan and I were outside and Troy was also outside in his swing. We are standing in the corner of the yard and I look over to the front door and see someone standing over Troy. Who is that?? I yell "Hey!" and start running over. Yes, of course it is Melia but it doesn't register b/c she was up in her room napping!! So yes she climbed out of her crib and walked downstairs to come find us. I laugh about it at first until bedtime when it is not so funny. I put her down to bed last night and I hear her door creak open. I see her little arm stick out and say "More milk!" I open the door and she runs back inside to her bed. So after I get her more milk that is the last time we hear from her until 2 a.m. when she is walking down the hall and then at 7:30 this a.m. when she is up. So as I have been typing all of this Melia has been down for a nap for the last 1.5 hours and gotten out of her crib at least 10 times. This last time Dan went in she was on her change table wiping her bum with wipes which is covered in poop. Lovely. She is trying to change herself. Time to potty train, I think. Her dirty diaper was on the ground. Should I just change her crib into a daybed 'cause it can or just leave it as a crib? Any advice? Sis, should I get that tent? ha ha Maybe you should!!
What's his is hers....Melia loves to go night night in Troy's bassinet which has been downstairs. She doesn't really go to sleep but she likes ti pretend. Oh when I tell her it is time for a nap she says "No night night Mommy!" Aahh...and then there is Troy. My sweet little boy is such a calm little guy and a great sleeper. He is sound asleep in his room right now...too bad his sister isn't. I didn't realize how great I had it until today when her awesome naps turned into this. Well I hope everyone has had a great week. this was Dan's last week off so he is back to school Monday. Melia started gymnastics class twice a week and she likes it. I love it b/c it is a real studio not like a little playtime place for kids. Her teacher is Coach Utah...that's his first name. Utah. He is nice. Ok gotta go put Melia down for the 80th time. AAAHHH!!

Climbing out of her crib is "funny" to the rest of us; but,not so funny to you!!! The pictures are adorable . . . love her new "do"!

I remember when my boys started to do that. I never did use that tent but it's not a bad idea if you don't want to deal with her getting out of bed all the time. Maybe changing it to a daybed though might help her to know that she's not stuck in bed.
Potty training? Ya I think she's ready! It's not the funnest thing to do, in fact I hate it but I would hate cleaning something like that up all the time. Taylor did a similar thing the other day except she just started crying in her nap. When I found her she had put everything out of her crib on the floor and was sitting there with poo all over her sheets. She was bawling like she didn't know what to do and hated that it was stinky! SICK!
Love you guys...we need to talk soon!

Proud Momma said...

oh by the way, I noticed that Melia likes to eat yogurt with her hand more than her spoon? Another Taylor favorite! And really cute hair!

Nana said...

Well it was bound to happen soon or later. That's quite a climb cause that mattress is so low. But with Melia, nothing surspizes me. She's such a mini athelete!! I love the pig tails! She looks so much older and like such a little girl too!! It's nice that she likes it too, at least for now. When I first looked at that picture of Melia in the bassinett, I thought WOW Troy has grown SO MUCH!! I had to do a double take! Funny little girl. I'm glad that Troy is a calm and happy baby. That is such a blessing!! Well I'm finally home in Calgary and I'll call you this weekend. Love you guys lots!!

Brian, Jeni, Nat, and Stephen said...

ok piggytails. CUTE!!!!
ALSO TAY, NAT AND MELIA TOGETHER WOULD BE CAOS... they all like to eat yogart with their hands rather than spoons.. what is with that?!
Get a child door lock. it works great, till they learn to open that too!! UGH! she is justs oooooooooo cute! She is getting so old and grown up. when can we see you guys next? I hope this summer before everyone is grown up!

Mike Karyn & Nash said...

Well, at least we are in bedtime/naptime hell together! Mike just put a new door knob with a lock on the outside on Nash's door. He just doesn't want to sleep because he's afraid he'll miss something. Nash has been like that since the day he was born!! So when he started climbing out of his crib we just turned the crib to the daybed and then a month later got the 'big boy bed' (Thomas bed) and now have the full size bed. It's rough at first but then they get used to it...until 2.5 years old..and it starts all over again!!!!

Mike Karyn & Nash said...

oh ps..Melia is so beautiful. Nash called her pigtails--piggys and he now calls her "liapeanuts"

Carol Ann Saldana (Zoe's mom) said...

I know your pain! Zoe hasn't mastered getting out of her bed yet, thank god! She took a pen to our new red leather sofa and marked all over the top of it. She then took out the new blueberries and grapes and dumped them on the floor!! It's hard to get mad at her because she is so sweet. She actually tells people thank you, you're welcome, bless you, and yes ma'am. If only she could teach my two older ones.

Melia is absolutely adorable. I wish her and Zoe could play together - could you imagine the trouble they could get in to?

Ok, I'm with Jeni, get the child door locks they really are a lifesaver...that is until they figure them out! But at least it'll buy you some time. And I would change it over to the day bed for sure. I mean, part of her getting out is to show you that you're no longer in control of that part of her existence. It'll make her feel like a big girl and then at least if she does get out of bed she can get back in by herself and does't have to come running to you to do it. Also, what if the unthinkable happened and when she's climbing out she fell and broke a bone? Yah, that wouldn't be very fun. She is cute as a button though eh? Love the hairdo!
