Resourceful!

Brooke has suddenly discovered that if she finds something the right height that she can push around or pick up and put wherever she decides, she can get about anywhere she wants to! Suddenly this week she has become OBSESSED with getting herself to higher places!
I am by no means surprised with this new little discovery, I am actually surprised that it has not come sooner, but boy does this make things a little more complicated for life as a Mommy! Today Brooke got a chair over to the kitchen counter right where the knives are and went for a reach "NO" and then moved onto the stove which very much excited her NOT ME! Tuesday she loves to look for the BIG TRUCKS (trash trucks) so she pushed a chair over to our open 2nd story window, right by the screen, do you know how easy it would be for her to lean a little too hard on that screen and fall right out that window? I DO! So yes, my life is a bit more stressful and her life is a bit more free! I hope I can keep her alive and unharmed!
With this little case she now has access to each and every light switch in the house and LOVES IT!
Getting to her Fishy!
She is OBSESSED with water and washing her hands right now! I think she asks me like 20 times a day to wash her hands.
O and a side note, it kinda goes along with this post, Brooke escaped from her crib for the first time yesterday while she was supposed to be napping. Aaaa... here goes!

I already have this problem with Olo. He loves to climb so he gets up on the couch, to get to the tables, etc. I don't have anything higher to move things. So I completely understand. It certainly makes things more stressful. But fun to watch them learn and figure things out.

Sounds just like Brady! Brady loves anything that he can plug in or turn on!!

Oh yes my dear, sit down, hold and tight and enjoy the ride! It just gets bumpier and bumpier! She is a cute little thing climbing...sure it is not quite as cute when it is your lights doing strobe light action and your fish she is about to murder :)

you are lucky she's waited this long to figure that out. I finally put our kitchen chairs back on the ground...but Austin has discovered pushing the chairs to get what he wants too. Such smart little boogers! (FYI-you can manually delete the above comment)

Man, I'm so glad Mitch has not figured that out yet! Insanity I'm sure! Make sure to add me to your soon to be private blog!

have you even done a snapfish book? there are definetly other cool sites out there to create photobooks like scrap blog or mixbook but they are more pricey... i started with snapfish and so i feel i need to stay true to them until i find an amazing deal elsewhere...like i said i do one book each year for each kid...so riley has a 0-12month book (started at her birth and ended at her first bday) and a 1-2yr book (started the day after her first bday and ends at her 2nd bday) and i am working on her 2-3yr book. I am also doing braden's 0-12month book (birth to first bday) i haven't done his yet because i was waiting for a deal...to get this deal (buy 1 book get two free when you pay shipping) you just put in mommybooks at the checkout! it's a great deal..i think the books i do are around 30 each or something so im going to get all 3 for like 43 bucks or something...i have no idea what i am going to do with the 3rd one yet...me and josh have a five yr anniversary coming up, maybe something for that? have fun!
