|Olivia, at age 7 months and 4 days. I think this is the first time I caught her standing in the crib.|
Also, Olivia started climbing out of her crib at something like 16 months, which was when we moved her to a regular bed, so we were anticipating more of the same.
Of course, that was silly. Kids are different. Martin and Olivia are VERY different. At almost 7 months, Martin is content to sit on the floor and play with a bottle cap while I type this post.
|What? I'm playing here.|
|Olivia - 7 months 9 days, crawling|
|Olivia, 7 months old, climbing on bleachers and laughing.|
|Martin, turns 7 months on Saturday, sitting in one spot and laughing!|
All of this is to say that it looks like Martin would get more use out of a crib than Olivia ever did. So we are getting one today (actually, borrowing one from Grandma). I think he'll be happy with it, but I'm OK if it takes him awhile longer to start standing in it. I want to enjoy my baby as long as I can.
