my terrified valentine
I know, right here she doesn't look all that terrified. Isn't she cute in her little Valentine's outfit! I just LOVE it! She's getting more and more bold and I've been telling Anthony we need to lower her crib because I just knew she would be pulling herself up at any time. Well yesterday, she did just that.
I heard her in her room playing after her nap but hadn't gone up to get her. I was on the phone with Mimi and heard Addison start SCREAMING! Not just a little scream. a terrified, petrified, horrible scream. I knew something was up. I went up stairs and found her just like this....it was pitiful but I had to run down and get my camera. :)
Thankfully she was on her knees and hadn't figured out how to stand up. She could have gone over the side. I remember this so vividly with the boys. They would figure this out and it would scare them to death! They just couldn't understand what they had done and they didn't know how to get back down! She was holding on with a death grip for her life! Poor little thing!
We lowered the crib last night so she is safe now. And guess what...she now pulls herself up and STANDS up holding on. It still freaks her out but I'm sure she'll keep doing it. Sooner or later she'll figure out how to let go! :)
My baby girl is growing up too fast!!!
