Strawberry turned 15 months.  Yesterday.  Just yesterday.  Today she learned how to crawl out of her crib.  And might I add, that she is quite proud of herself.

I find myself wanting to cry.   In my mind she shouldn’t be big enough to do that.   I needed a few more months before she learns that trick.

I guess I should not be too surprised.  Grape learned how to climb out of her bed around 15 months too.

So to keep her safe for tonight she is in the pack-n-play, but it is only a matter of time before she learns how to crawl out of that too.  I’ve seen her try, and she gets pretty close to pulling herself out of it.

I am not sure what we are going to do.

I can say that life is going to be pretty crazy around here for awhile.   Grape does not stay in her bed well (and gets up multiple times at nap and bed time to go potty).  Strawberry can now get out of her bed.  And I have a newborn to nurse.   Plus Hubby is going to get back to his regular work schedule next week.  I am pretty certain that my opportunities to take naps have come to an end for some time.

The Lord is giving me more opportunities to learn to draw my strength from Him alone.
