Climber

Andy has proved himself to be a climber, going up flights of stairs, trying to climb the drawers in the kitchen, climbing up onto the footstool. But tonight, he went above and beyond! He went straight up the 5 foot slide on the play structure in the backyard. He did it without any help or steadying. I think I only put my hand up to catch him once.
He was even able to climb into the house at the top...none of us could believe what we were seeing. Especially Julie, who threw off her shoes and followed him, as not to be outdone by her little brother. They were both proud when the got to the top.

Uh Ohhhhh we are all in trouble, the deck is very scary --- this calls for even more constant vigilance. And he is soooooo cute and pleased with himself as he does it!!!!!

Its a good thing we spread our boys out... he and Dawson would be a DANGEROUS pair if they taught eachother all their evil kanevil tricks. Boys and their climbing! GAH!
