After much discussion we have decided to change his crib into a toddler bed. The last couple of days he has climbed over the side onto the floor of his crib. This morning he climbed over after waking up and he was so quiet and hardly said anything in his room. I was so tired that I just turned up the volume so I could hear if he complained. Nothing! When Jason went into his room to get him up he was just laying on the floor reading his books...in the DARK. So cute. This evening I reorganized his closet and put things away and put a safety door knob on his closet door so he couldn't get in. We still need to put latches on his changing table drawers. Jason changed the crib into a toddler bed. Jase climbed and jumped as Jason worked. Jason sang to Jase for bed and when he put him down Jase got out of bed and was upset following Jason to the door. Jason told him he needed to go to bed and closed the door. The previous owners of our home had already switched the lock on the bedroom door so the lock is on the outside. We have locked him in so that he is not wandering out in the rest of the house. He took a while to fall asleep but this is not unusual for him. We shall see how this goes but I have hopes it will be good. We have a video monitor so it really helps give a peace of mind to see him in his room. It doesn't show every nook and cranny but it will be neat to watch him in his room at a "different" angle!
