Evan has learned a new trick this past week--he can climb up into chairs all by himself!
The first time he did it, we were busy packing and putting things in a Uhaul truck. I noticed he was in the chair, and I asked Jeremy if he sat him in the chair (and then left the room...). Jeremy didn't put him in the chair, and I didn't put him in the chair. By process of elimination, Evan must have got up all by himself.
Since then, Evan has demonstrated his talent many times. These pictures are from last Sunday--he climbed into the rocking chair we used all the time to soothe him to sleep as a baby. Sleep was the last thing on his mind here. I'm sure life for us will not be the same again. I say that everytime he learns something new--so far, it's been true!
Look at Me! Look at Me! Look at Me!
This is me thinking...thinking about all the trouble I can get into now that I know how to climb!
Oh, and the other cute new trick he learned during the move was how to climb inside an empty cupboard and close the door on himself. This skill has also transferred nicely to home, although he has to deal with climbing over all the stuff inside (there is no such thing as an empty cupboard at our house). That hasn't stopped him yet--Jeremy found him in the towel cupboard under the bathroom sink yesterday. Like mother, like son--when I was little, I would empty out drawers and get inside those.
