Climber


I babysat today in Daughter 1's house while she and SIL 1 took one of their guinea pigs to the vet. Grandson played with his toys for a while... 


and then took off.


He found a handy step provided by Daughter 1's workbox.


It allowed him to reach more of the stuff on the shelves.


Spoilsport Granny moved a box of bricks on to the "step". He accepted this with his customary equanimity.

(PS - I had one hand stretched out towards him in case he fell. But he seemed very practised at this feat.)

  12. He has grown so quickly, he's not a baby any more, he's a toddler and a very cute one at that!
