Big Night for the Little Man

After learning a couple days ago that Kaleb could lift his leg up over the crib rail we decided to move him towards the direction of a big boy bed. So tonight we took his mattress out of his crib and put it on the floor. He was pretty overwhlmed by the newness, but went right to sleep. Now we need to see what happens when he wakes up in the middle of the night. His door is shut so we aren't to worried about him leaving the room, my guess is that he will stay right in bed until we come check on him.

Two Kaleb Moments

We woke up this morning and Kaleb asked for the iPhone. Now he has been using the iPhone in some capacity for at least six months now. He started by using some fun kid apps that played animal sounds, and then figured out how to slide and unlock. This morning he put together the following actions: Hit home button, slid to unlock, swiped to the third home screen, tapped the new "Wheels on the Bus" app, tapped the bunny to make it jump, dragged the hat up to reveal the bunny, hit the next screen arrow and swiped the bus to make it go, navigated to the wipers screen and swiped back and forth to make the wipers clean the window of rain. Its amazing how easy to use a computer device can be when it only requires a couple simple touch gestures.

The other moment was during my shower. Usually in the morning Kaleb randomly wanders around the upstairs unattended while I take a shower, Jennifer says I am brave, perhaps I am just over-confident in Kaleb. Most days he stays in the bathroom and other days I holler for him and eventually clamor around dripping wet and in just a towel to find him quietly playing away in a different room. There are the occasional freak outs like when he was standing on top of the headboard of the guest bedroom bed looking out the window. Today was one of the days he stayed in the bathroom. I heard him playing with toys and the next thing I know there is a magnetic fishing rod sticking through the shower curtain with a starfish hanging off it. Two minutes later and the rod sticks through again with a crab. Crazy kid. Then he insisted on splashing in the puddle left over from my shower.
