A Tisket, a Tasket, Addie in a Basket....

Ok, so I have a little story! As you know, we have adorable bumper pads that my mother in law and her friend made for Addie. You'll notice we are not currently using those adorable bumper pads. Let me tell you why.....
It turns out that our little peanut is a very mobile sleeper. She still has to be swaddled to sleep...if we don't swaddle her, she will lay there awake forever! But even in that swaddle, girl can MOVE! She inchworms her way around the crib on her back by arching and straightening her back, using her legs to kick around. We have watched her on the video monitor...so stinkin' funny. So, she was getting up so close to the bumper pads that she would bury her face in the side. This scared us! We are such worry warts, but it just looked like a suffocation hazard. So, after talking to several friends and our pediatrician, we decided to remove the bumper pads temporarily. Well guess what that meant? She was bumping into the rail! Aughh!! Exactly why bumper pads were invented. It would make her so mad and rightfully so! She would wake up with red marks on her head from smacking into the rail in her sleep. So....we had an idea. What if we put a Moses basket in her crib? Only problem...we don't own a Moses basket! But our sweet friends Jen and Aubrey have one for their son Grady that weren't currently using. So, they let us borrow it and ever since we put that basket in her crib, she is so happy and sleeping so peacefully! We are thinking she just likes to be up close to something snuggly to go to sleep. So, for the time being, our sweet little girl is all snuggled up in Grady's blue Moses basket inside of her crib and it's so cute. I love looking at her in it! I tell her all the time that "This is what BLUE looks like," because many of you know the child has an awful lot of PINK in her life...so this is good! Thanks Jen and Aubrey for the loan! Thought you all might enjoy these pics.....
Here she is in the basket...but it's hard to see her until....You peek over the edge and see her sweet little face! Ps--Right now we have a foam pad in there elevating her head to help with her congestion. Isn't she precious!!?? :-) Happy Weekend!
