On August 21, 2004 we introduced this:
and today, against our better judgment (but knowing full well we can't keep her in her crib until she's 18) we introduced this:
We're feeling a little guilty for secretly adding a feature that wasn't included the first time to the mix tonight:
Why are we feeling guilty? Because Gracie didn't even make a peep during her nap today, and when Matt thought she was up running around in there and popped in to be Mean Daddy he scared her a little bit, all tucked in her bed, behaving like an angel. Same thing so far tonight. Not one opened door, not one inkling of scurrying feet or jumping off furniture or climbing the closet shelves... in our defense, we have enough evidence to prove the need for a gate on the door, especially since our bedroom is downstairs. Maybe it's time to start giving her a little more credit.
But we're not holding our breath. We'll see.
