The crib has officially been removed from Jacob's room. It's "broken" right now in the baby's room, so no one can sleep in it. He's been sleeping well at night in his big boy bed for about three weeks, but would still choose to nap every day in the crib. The intent was to take the crib apart at the end of the month, and Jake would be done with it. Well, this last weekend he discovered that it was lots of fun to climb in and out of the crib. Not such a bad thing when you're just playing around, as the landing is soft. (The floors in our home are carpeted.) Last night we put him to bed, like normal, and went about our evening chores. All was quiet upstairs until about 9:30 when we heard Jacob cry out. Brian ran upstairs to check on him and quickly discovered that Jake's face was covered in blood. Somehow he had lacerated his eyelid (though we really didn't know the extent of the damage with his face bloodied the way it was.) Needless to say, we ended up going to the Emergency Room. He didn't end up needing stitches (thank goodness), rather the doctor used Steri Strips to tape the laceration closed. Jacob was a trooper through the whole ordeal, and was his normal, energetic monkey self for most of the day today. He'll have a nice shiner, and may have a slight scar, but he really was blessed to not have cut his eye (the picture doesn't really do it justice--it's a much cooler looking owie than the camara captured).
