Super Ninja Skills
Speaking of nunchuck skills, Parker showed off his advanced ninja training yesterday before his nap. I was downstairs and heard a gigantic thump so I flew up the stairs (actually I don't even think I touched the floor -- I was like a stone skipping across water) and found Parker sitting on the floor, outside of his crib, looking stunned. His blankets and stuffed animals were on the floor next to him in a big pile. I think he threw his stuff out of the crib and then did a flip over the railing trying to get to them. That's my theory anyways. He was totally fine, but definitely surprised. He does this thing where he scrambles to a sitting position if you wake him up, as if to show you that he's awake and not sleeping, and that's what I pictured him doing after he hit the floor. I picked him up and checked him out for any bumps or painful spots, but he was fine. Luckily babies are made out of rubber. I gave him some Tylenol (just in case he was sore), changed his diaper, put him back in his crib, and he went to sleep within a minute. Now that he's fallen out of his crib once I doubt he'll try it again! I'm just kind of surprised it didn't happen sooner! He's pretty fearless about climbing on things.
