Climbing, climbing, climbing, and Go Vote...

WOW - ok so you know how the other day I told you about Caden climbing out of his crib, right? Well, I caught him in action. That little turd just puts his leg up over the top of the rail and holds on until he just drops to the ground. I just don't know what to do. Once he did it that morning - he hasn't stopped. Although I am lucky that when he goes to sleep at night he sleeps til morning, well, for now anyway. He's on 15.5 months old and my oldest never climbed out of his crib. I did find a nsort of canopy net to go over the top of the crib to prevent him from climbing out but it's $80.00 - I just don't know that I want to spend that much $ and then in a couple of months turn around and change his bed into a toddler bed. But, I guess I should just go ahead and buy it because yesterday he just sort of leaned over the rail and feel out on his head. So, anyway check out these photos where I caught him in the act....

Can you believe this? I couldn't!! But here it is!!

Just Hang on and then drop!! Smart kiddo!!

This is when he finally got down and came running out of his room!!
