Who can keep up with this?

Trying to squeeze through the railing - thankfully, he doesn't have a prayer of fitting with that enormous head!  (He gets it from me so I'm allowed to say that.)


Just another day of dumping something out and running.  Please note that he has jammed as many cookies into his mouth as would fit before taking off.  Smart boy.


We can see everything you're doing - it's a split level, honey.
The view from the family room...


At this point I had just resigned myself to the fact that I'd have to sweep and mop the floor, so why not let him play in the mess for a while and be happy?  And of course, take more pictures...



And this is how I found him when I got him out of bed this morning...


My first thought was, 'Oh good - another sign that he's closer to the potty-training phase!  Able to participate in dressing and undressing himself.'  Thinking like a mom can't be avoided... I am so ready to NOT buy diapers for 2 babies at the same time!  We already have the potty, a children's book about using it, and yesterday I taught him how to say 'poop!'...  We are on our way, but I plan to take it slowly and just talk about the whole thing for a while before taking any action.


And yes, he sleeps with 3 blankets, 2 stuffed animals and no less than 2 paci's.  We are the picture of crib safety and boundaries.

LOVE the series of cookies pictures! You gotta give the kid props for stuffing all those cookies in his mouth before making his big getaway! Definitely a smartie!

What does that little guy do in his sleep? How did he manage that little manuever? Maybe he's a trend-setter in the making -- can we say back to the 80's baby?!!
