Falling out…

by Dave

…of bed. In the month that Eli has been in his ‘big boy bed’ he has only fallen out of bed 3 times. He has fallen out of bed 2x at home and once at Gramma and Grampa’s house. Although the fall from the bed at Gramma and Grampa’s house is a lot shorter and softer than at our house, he still woke up from it. He just fell out of bed yesterday morning at 5:30am. We did a quick diaper change, gave him a sippy cup of milk, I snuggled with him for about 20 minutes and put him back to bed fully asleep. He slept until after 9am.

We enjoy waking up to the pitter patter of his feet running up and down the hallway. One day we woke up to Eli make laps up and down the hallway, he was collecting his blocks and putting them in his bed. Now he stands in our doorway saying, ‘mom. dad’. He’s a cute kid!

I started back to work this week, which has been a huge change for Eli and I. Dave said after breakfast Eli ran back to our bedroom yelling ‘mom’ trying to find me.
