|She wasn't asleep...I think I just caught her blinking|
Ryan's other idea did not work out so well, while it was a good one...just something the kids weren't ready for. After our lease is up in December we are more than likely going to move to a smaller place to save money (more on that later), so the kids will probably end up sharing a room. We wanted to test that idea. Both kids were excited at first, but then Hannah fell asleep and Autumn still wanted to party. She kept getting into Hannah's bed, and I heard on the baby monitor "Autumn, stop bothering me!" So upstairs I would go (Ryan was lucky...he was at work :p), and I put Autumn back in her own bed. By the time 11 PM rolled around we put Autumn back in her own room. All has been well since...Autumn sleeps just fine and even if she did get out of bed there's nothing within her reach that poses any safety issues. I'm sure once Autumn gets used to her "new bed" sharing a room won't be a problem.
