Our little "sleepwalker"

Over the past few weeks, since switching from the crib to a bed, Gracie has been getting out of bed and sleeping on the floor. We wake up in the morning to find her curled up with her blankie in such places as the hall, the foot of her bed, the boy’s room, and even under the crib? It has become very common to find her outside of bed on the floor or within a few steps of her room. Last night I woke up around 1:30 to use the little boy’s room and get a drink of water. As I past Gracie’s room, I noticed that she again was gone. I went in her room expecting to find my little boots (one of daddy’s many nicknames for my girl) curled up awkwardly on the floor, but this time their was no such luck. I checked all the "regular" spots again with no luck. I went and woke up Alysen and we proceeded to search for our little boots. It has never taken us very long to find her, so after a few minutes a little panic started to set in. As we made our way down the hall and into the living room we finally found our little girl slumped over the edge of the couch with her arms tightly wrapped around her blankie. This was the farthest from her room that she has ever traveled at night. I am starting to think we might have a sleepwalker on our hands.

What a sweet picture! That would freak me out. Carter gets out of bed but never makes it pass the door.

I think our little HY does the exact same thing. Generally, he comes and just stands by our bed. If he goes somewhere else...it would be the pantry. Closet eater.

HELLO! it's in the family... don't you remember lee running after a pretend dog in the middle of the night at the sweet taylor family reunion? you should probably expect some sleep talking too, it can get pretty bad.
