"Where's Tenzing Norgay when Jack needs him?"

So this past week brought us this ambulatory development:


That's right. Stair climbing.

Kate across the street has already been doing this for a couple of months but she's also auditioning for the Wallenda family so you have to take that into account. (She's also the only 1 year old I've ever seen do cartwheels and round offs.) Either way it's new to us.

Fabulous Babe will cringe when she sees the stained wall in the photo. That's a souvenir from a munchkin at our Christmas party that has resisted all our best efforts. I sense a paint job sooner than later.


"Don't hate me because I'm beautiful and I can climb stairs."


Mr. Saggy Bottom has climbed up the stairs to the landing once so far. (He's also fallen backwards from the first step and conked his head on the floor once as well.) He's still trying to get the rhythm and hang of the whole thing but it's just a matter of time.

My Grandparents had a gate on the top of their stairs to keep me caged. (Their stairway is a deathtrap.) At this point we're trying to decide if we put a gate on the top or the bottom. He's always under some supervision but we're trying to hedge bets. Any thoughts?
