As a young family, trying to make a rental house a home, I decorated two conjoining rooms to make my 9 month old daughter a beautiful nursery and playroom. Before we moved into this house, our daughter slept in a bassinet next to our bed, due to some health issues. One afternoon, I put her down for a nap, with the video monitor aimed directly at her, hoping that she could sleep in her new nursery. For approximately 40 minutes, things were calm, and she was peacefully sleeping. I went back to watching television. I then heard giggling coming from the monitor, and saw my daughter standing up with her arms stretched out in front of her reaching for somebody who was right out of sight. Her father ran upstairs opened the door, and a black figure rushed through him, at which point, our daughter started screaming and crying. We learned our lesson quickly and moved her crib into the master bedroom with us. She didn't sleep in the nursery the rest of our stay in that rental.
