monkey child

It's no secret Eli is part monkey. He's been scaling furniture since he could walk and scaling walls since then. For months he's been flipping the ottoman over and over across the room so he could reach things up high. He's figured out just about every child lock in the house. And now...

Now he's climbed out of the crib. Argh! I put him in his bed for a nap and about ten minutes later I heard pounding on his door. I knew it was too loud to be the cat, so I went to check. Sure enough, there he was grinning at me from the bunk bed ladder, lamp on the floor.

Great! I've already been fretting about his non-readiness for the big-boy bed in a few months when BB2 makes his appearance, but now I have to worry about it sooner than expected. I don't think he's ready to be out of the crib and I'm not sure what to do. Fence him in with a baby crib cage? Just let him try the bed? I'm worried about the bunk bed ladder and neck-breaking activities.

Where did my baby go?!
