This is is pretty much how every morning goes when we walk into Miloh's room. I had to cut it short short because a stray roach was walking around.
Update: to answer Lauren's question. This is the Cliff Notes version of how this started happening.
First thing is the floor bed should actually be called a bed floor. He often crawls out of his bed to sleep. Less now but he did a lot in the beginning.
And at first he'd crawl towards the door wanting to get out and he'd fall asleep right at the door. There were a couple clunks until we started opening the door super slowly.
Sometimes it took us awhile to open it. He could be right at the door and we had to nudge him out...slide a hand through and move him.
Then as he got older he tried to open the door...but sadly he often shut it. He'd open it ever once in awhile but it was a fluke.
But now that he's super old he gets how to open it. Most mornings he wakes around 6:20 and plays in his room for 15-30 minutes. We hear him clunking toys and talking.
Then when he wants us to get him he goes to the door and either kicks it or hits it. We hear the knocking head to his room and open the door a bit.
Then I think he backs up for us to open it...or on a lot of days for him to get the door.
