Is Mt Everest next?

I'm not used to this. Jaxon NEVER attempted to climb ANYTHING. He's not too fond of heights, and I never realized how fortunate I was for that.

The highchair was in that spot because I had just given Jax a hair cut. DH took him upstairs for a quick shower to rinse off the hair and he left Abby down with me. I was vacuuming when I looked up and saw her sitting in the highchair. I was quit perplexed because she had just been tangled around my legs helping me to vacuum. And I clearly still heard the shower running upstairs. So, I shut off the vacuum to go upstairs and inquire whether DH came down and put her in the highchair. He hadn't. I came back downstairs, got my camera, took her out of the highchair and told her to do it again.

I like how she looks at you the whole time.

Cheyenne climbed everything.....nothing was safe....

remember when she climbed the 8 foot ladder and got on top of the boys closet...

I know exactly how you feel!!!

Yep, same here. Alicia never climbed a thing. I found DJ on the kitchen counter at 10 months. YIKES!

I am in the same boat here. JB climbs everything, and Rache never, ever attempted anything like it. Rache is a much more cautious kid, and JB is a daredevil. You can't leave her alone for a second, and it scares the crap out of me! I remember at 8 months, I went upstairs to get a load of laundry, looked back, and there she was! She has crawled up the stairs --- at 8 months! Currently, she climbs up the handles on the drawers to get to the kitchen counter; she climbs up the rolly-cart thing in the kitchen to get things off of the top. I think I say to DH at least every other day that she's going to cost us some serious ER bills.

Yup.. same thing ... Harrison climbed nothing and Siena could climb up on to the kitchen table before she could walk!

hahahaha. I love the photo journal of her climb. I can imagine it comes with a few grey hairs, but from where I'm sitting, this is so cute!!

Mine all climbed, Theo being the most ambitious. We have everything tethered to the walls here! The kicker was when we found him on the kitchen counter with a butcher knife; now the knives are all kept in a block in the cupboard over the stove hood.

I love the sequence of photos you got - she is one cutie patootie!

SO jealous of the non-climbing time you had! Both my kids are climbers...they will climb any and everything. :rolleyes:

She sure is cute though! Smile

OMG she's such a little dare devil! That was Aidan, but he is also very agile and rarely falls. William on the other hand is not as adventurous, but is a total klutz so it all works out fine LOL

My boys are both climbers too. I found what worked best for me was teaching them how to climb safely and how to get back down once they were up.
I do love how she looks at you the whole time, like, are you getting all this.
Good luck!
