So being almost 2 years old and a wild child at times, Chandler is still in his crib. I have no desire to put him into a bigger bed so that he can roam the apartment how and when he wants to. Plus he doesn't climb out of his crib. He's only tried once and he started screaming as the crib was pulled away from the wall and he was suspended by his neck. Yeah, that was scary. Now I make sure the crib is pushed right up against the wall. Anways, I like to take advantage of the fact that he sleeps in late and will usually shower while he's still sleeping. When he wakes up, he has some books and toys within reach that he plays with and reads. Then he will just holler until I come get him out. He also can't turn knobs yet and so if he shuts himself in his room, again, he will holler until someone comes to get him out. I believe it was Sunday, I got up about 9 - Chan usually wakes up about 9:30 and I found him wandering around the kitchen, standing by the closet pantry because he's hungry. Marshall is in the shower so I figure he got Chandler out of bed. Come to find out, Marshall says he didn't get him out of bed. Weird, right? So today I put my ear to his door to make sure he's still asleep and decide to get in the shower. I wasn't in the shower more than 10 minutes. I got out and noticed Chandler's door was open. I immediately felt nervous and ran into his room. Of course he wasn't there. I run out into the living room and there he is, sitting on the couch, reading a book.....lol. I have no idea how he got out of his crib and opened the door to his room? Ok, so the crib climbing thing I can understand, but he can't open doors? I shut him in his room this afternoon to see if he could open it. I could tell he was trying, and he finally just started crying and I let him out. I don't get it?
This reminds me of one other time he proved to be a magician. It was probably 3-4 months ago. I had put him in his chair (buckled in) with his sippy cup and put a movie on. I got in the shower and hadn't been in there more than 3 minutes when I felt a breeze. I panicked and thought someone was in our apartment. Then Chandler pulls back the shower curtain and starts tugging at his clothes because he wants to get in. I went to look at his high chair and the tray was still on, and it was still buckled. He's never done it since :) Guess I need to get up at like 7 am to take my showers from now on, lol.
