Yesterday, we lowered the mattress in Hendrik's crib. He's been a bit of a monkey lately, sitting up from laying down, and then pulling himself up to standing from sitting - so for the past few nights and naptimes, I've been pretty nervous that he'd stand up in his crib and then topple over the railing. Especially because when Brian went to get him up the other day he was sitting up in his crib beside the railing. We didn't have the time to fix the crib that night, so instead we took two of the couch cushions and put them on the floor beside the crib - at least he wouldn't break his neck?
Any how, we got it done yesterday, and I'm glad that we have a drop-side crib, because it's really far down! (Don't worry, none of the parts in our drop side are plastic, so it's just as sturdy as an immobile side....) He looks so little way at the bottom when he's sleeping..... but, this is why we did it:

p.s.: I really like the bumper pad that I found at Talize, it's Pottery Barn for Kids. And I love even more that I bought it for $4. That's a savings of about $95! ;)
