Can you say "Flexible?"

As part of our new found ability to pull up and sit up in bed, bedtime and naptime have become a little more complicated. So, Keith and I got out our handy little guide, "Sleep Sense," and started reading. Sure enough, there was a section on when your baby starts pulling up. I learned I was doing it all wrong. That it was okay to let them pull up and sit up in bed, that they have to learn that to sleep they must lay down. That going in to check on them every 5 to 10 minutes or so to lay them down was acceptable. And that at times, they may even dose off while they sit or stand (dosing while standing is not good, but an issue we address by leaving the door cracked and looking in on her every few minutes). So, tonite we started and she rolled, she sat up, she stood up. We let her and went and laid her down after 10 minutes. She got mad, we told her we loved her and that it was bedtime and left. We checked on her through out our dinner prep, and she was sitting up talking to her Frog and Caterpillar. When dinner was ready, we went to check on her before sitting down to eat...this is what we found...

Can you say - FLEXIBLE?
