As a jaybird

Last night, we put Olivia to bed at the regular time, but she sort of crawled around and played in her crib for awhile. No big deal. She does that sometimes. As long as she's not crying or in distress, we just let her play and eventually she falls asleep.

We always check on her before we go to bed to make sure she has blankets or her leg is not sticking through the bars or anything. So we went in to check on her.

She was wearing nothing but her diaper.

I don't know what her fascination is with taking off her sleeper, but it's obvious that we are going to have to dress her in something other than zipper sleepers for awhile. We didn't want to wake her up, so we just put a few blankets over her and tucked her in and stiffled our laughter until we were back in our own bedroom.

Then, at 4:30 a.m. or so, I hear Olivia awake and playing in her crib. Again, this happens on occasion and we just let her fall back asleep. But around 5:00, she started to cry. I went in to check on her and found her completely na*ked and curled up in a little ball with her discarded diaper sitting in the opposite corner.

I picked her up, diapered her, dressed her and put her back in her crib, and she went back to sleep until 8:00. She probably slept pretty well for those last few hours too, being DRESSED and all.

We had to TAPE Cailyn's diaper on her for 1 1/2 years!!!!!!!!! She would take off any & all clothes & I had cleaned up entirely too many messes! We used blue painter's tape & at each diaper change we had to cut if off w/ scissors. I hope this doesn't happen with you guys! It was awful! :)
