The Climber

Baby Brother keeps conquering new heights and generally keeping me on my toes!

He managed this yesterday, among several other minor feats (climbing the stove, a stool, the easel).

Then once I'd removed him several times, he discovered this:

He maneuvered under a green chair and squeezed past the gate around the stairs (also in place to keep him from crawling under them), climbed the steps then stood holding on to the chair arms and lifted one leg around and up. Once he had one leg on the chairs, he pulled the rest of himself up and around.

I removed him and re-secured the area. Then he did it again.

I read this article last week, and generally agreed with it. With Baby Brother, I suspect it's going to be a necessity to provide him with lots of physical (and risky!) outlets.


  1. Whoa! That was Little Man. Button is a lot less daring.

  2. My oldest was able to climb to the top of the refridgerator :)
