Ollie is a climber and hence does not sleep in a crib. He's been sentenced to the pack&play for now. During the middle of the night(3am) Ollie likes to burrow and dig under his mattress, where he snuggles in, dangling amongst the metal bars.
Only to awaken moments later, screaming indignantly that his comfy bunker is hurting him.
After 5 nights straight, we finally wised up to his shenanigans and tightly velcroed his mattress down.
We applauded ourselves for being so smart.
Only to be awoken the next night, to Ollie screaming and furiously trying to dig his way under the mattress, to no avail. Why are you doing this, Ollie? Why?
I am tired. But, we are not ready for his toddler bed. We have tried, and failed.
I have no photographic evidence of Ollie's midnight escapades, as it is not my custom to carry around my camera in the middle of the night. However, I did follow him around the backyard today, snapping pictures, because I LOVE THIS KID SO DARN MUCH. 100% mama's boy and I am loving it:)
and yes, we are trying out a new hairdo.
and the hair is now flat, but munch munch on those cheeks.
And in case you are wondering about the barn-like background structure--it is our almost-finished-shed-that-will-never-be-finished(hint, hint John and Dad).
