Growing Up and Out

Recently we noticed that this guy could reach up and grab the bumper in his crib. He was even pulling on it when he would roll on his tummy.
This week, Cort sat Eddie up in the crib while Cort went to find Eddie something to wear. Lo and behold this guy could see over the side pretty well.

And then he scooted himself right up to the side to say hi to daddy!

Then, because he is Eddie, he leaned in and gave the rail a taste.
And that is when the decision was made to lower the mattress a notch.
About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.
