Nephi loves shoes. One night when Hyrum had gone to bed and forgot his shoes, Nephi found them and loved wearing them around the house!
Nephi gets so tired that he refuses to do anything. It is really frustrating. He just stands around in the living room crying and if you talk to him or even look at him he will yell at you. Eventually he just crashes, usually on the floor or the couch but over the last several weeks he has found a new spot to fall asleep. This is the ottoman to my computer chair.
A couple of weeks ago we broke down and bought a toddler bed for Nephi. At the beginning of last month we had put Nephi down for a nap and a little while later Hyrum went into his room (the boys all share) to get some toy off of his bed. When Hyrum went in he jumped up to the top bunk and found Nephi sleeping there. Apparently Nephi figured out how to climb out of his crib! We have never experienced that before. Our other kids were not quite as adventurous as Nephi has proven to be. Before he climbed out, he had perfected the art of climbing in, so we knew that it was only a matter of time. We bought a toddler bed (2 actually, Gloria's was cheap and had started to bend) from a family with twins off of craigslist.com. Here is Nephi's first adventure in the new bed. He really loves having a big-boy bed like all the other kiddos.
