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.)

And now Granny will look around her own home, at all the pretty (and breakable) things within reach of small fingers!!!

The concentration and the triumph. You forget the bits you should be missing madly.

Are you sure that is the same boy? He looks so grown up today! Sending love and a hug.

He's obviously going to keep you all on your toes. He is a very advanced little boy!

Amazing, as others have commented, at how grown-up he looks when vertical!

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

I haven't really seen it before, but N looks very like Dr. Son in picture 1.
