The Reign of the Kiddopotamus is OVER!

Many of you may know that Kevin and I use a Kiddopotamus to put Brooklyn to bed at night. The Kiddopotamus is basically a glorified swaddling blanket that we have used since day one to help her fall asleep better.Its really quite a wonderful invention because it keeps your baby still, safe and warm! We never had to worry about Brooklyn kicking off her blanket and getting cold or getting startled in the night and hitting or scratching herself! UNTIL NOW! Last night when I put Brooklyn to bed she looked like this:
When I got up in the morning to start our day, she looked like this:
You may have noticed the blanket in the crib that wasn't there in the first picture...she pulled that off the side of the crib and also managed to move her Bumbo pillow over her back and toward her feet! And if you are wondering where the Kiddopotamus is...it is tightly wrapped around her waste and feet! She didn't even undo the Velcro, she simply squeezed her arms out the top and flipped herself over into crawling position! UGH! Now we will actually have to be responsible parents and take all the extra blankets off and out of her crib so she doesn't strangle herself! What a little Houdini she turned out to be. :)

Hahahahahahahahaha!!! That is the funniest picture ever! I can't believe she managed to get herself so tangled up! What a cutie patootie! I want a kiddopotamus, Brinley gets out of her burrito wrap every night and she's only a couple weeks old! Little stink!

Hey Becca, We got our Kiddopotamus as a gift from Brian and Natalie. (Thanks guys!) But I know you can get them at Baby's R Us.

If you don't have one by the time I come out and see you, I will get you one since I didn't get to go to your baby shower!

Oh man, that's hilarious. I love it! I can't wait to hang out with you guys!

By the way, if you tried weighing her on the scale in the kitchen, it always made me think Wes was heavier than the doctors weighed him in at!

PS: Kiddos are the best...as long as they stay in them! :)

She's brilliant and sneaky already! Soon she'll be tricking people into thinking she deserves m&m's.
That last picture of her is so cute!
