On Monday Jeremy took Judah to boy scouts like usual. I put the kids to bed like usual. I had just put the babies in their bed and went out to the living room to sit down and I was just listening to them "talk" on the baby monitor when all the sudden I hear this THUNK and then WAAAAAA so I jump up and RUN into the their room..knowing what has happened. You see Micah has started to pull up. He pulls up on EVERYTHING. This should not have been a surprise to me but it was, he had pulled himself up on his crib rail and over the side he went. He was fine. I ran in and picked him up and he stopped crying immediately, it must have just scared him, it definitely scared me, I was glad Hosea was still awake because I was determined to figure out how to lower the mattress. I texted Jeremy and told him Micah had fell out of his crib, but was ok. I took both babies out and set them on the floor in their room and began disassembling their crib, with a few tools and a little "help" from Micah and Hosea..and by "help" I mean crawling and pulling up all over me and taking the tools that i set down..I finally got the thing lowered and was screwing in the last screw when Jeremy got home to help me. I'm just so glad he didn't get hurt. Of all 5 of my kids I had never had one fall out.Judah never did climb out of his, Josiah learned to climb out around 18 months and what fun we had trying to keep him in his crib. Avrah didn't start until she was almost 2 1/2. Just goes to show me that each one of them is uniquely different and there is still so much that I have to learn about being a mom.
Here is a picture of him pulling up on a toy. He also does this on the baby wipe box which looks more like he is trying to do push ups so cute.

A few things that have been going on. Last Saturday my 7 year old Judah was in his first chess tournament. It was a Broken Arrow school wide event and it was broken down by grades, they had the K-2nd grade together, there were 60 of them so they broke them down into two classes A & B, Judah was in class A. The way it worked was that they played 5 games, I'm not real sure how it was decided who they would play against. Judah did really good he won two, lost two, and tied one. In the ranking he tied for 4th. He really had a good time. waiting for his turn to play. Josiah and Daddy playing. Judah has this puppy pillow thing that goes on the seat belt in the car for if they fall asleep, he doesn't use it anymore so it is more of a toy and it was in my room. Well Yesterday morning I was trying to sneak in some more sleep while the kids were playing, and Avrah comes in and sees the puppy pillow and asks if she can play with the "rabbit" and I told her sure but it wasn't a rabbit it was a puppy, she looked at me like I was crazy showed me the ears and said "not puppy, it's a rabbit" and I said I know it has floppy ears but it is a puppy look at its tale, she was not having this, she said again "not puppy, it's a rabbit", and not wanting to argue with a 2 year old anymore I said fine, and she left the room, only to return minutes later with a puppy toy and said this "this puppy." and off she went to play with the "rabbit" also I could here her going "rabbit rabbit" as if that is what a rabbit says when it hops (like a frog goes rib bit)so cute but I think I've created a monster. Her "rabbit" the puppy she brought to me to prove me wrong. Also Micah and Hosea are all over the place, Micah is officially crawling. Here's a video. Enjoy. Off to chase them now.
