I am officially an Oompa Loompa.

Isabella is starting to show signs of pulling herself up, so we decided this week that it was time to lower the crib mattress. There is only a couple of inches difference between the middle setting and the lowest setting, so I told Jeff to go ahead and lower it all of the way since it is kind of a pain to do the adjustment. I knew that when we lowered the mattress I was going to have a problem reaching into the bottom of the crib because the front rail is fairly high. I might have underestimated how much of a problem it would be. The only way I can reach into the crib now is by stepping on my nursing stool and stretching. If one of the girls is at the back of the crib, I can't stretch far enough to reach her. I am officially an Oompa Loompa.

After a few rough nights involving lots of screaming, the monkeys were kind enough to let their momma have a nice long nap today. I really needed it and was very grateful. When I woke up they were quietly lounging in the crib. Apparently their mesh bumper makes a nice footrest.
