Running, Reaching, Climbing

The SuperYard baby fence that we stretched across the edge of the playroom, keeping Buster out of the electronics, TV, and Q-ster’s smaller toys, is now obsolete. Buster can vault over the arm of the couch and behind the fence, landing with a very stable and competent demeanor, all the world like a miniature paratrooper landing on his target terrain.

We need to take down the fence this weekend, because while he can get over it with the help of the couch, he can’t get back out. Every few minutes, he’ll be standing there, holding a prized toy, saying, “help, help” or “’tuck, ‘tuck” (stuck) and asking to be retrieved.

If he’s properly balanced on a step stool, he can also reach a few light switches. He’s pretty happy about that.

And then there was light! And grins.

Just like when Linus can open the frig door in Charlie Brown and said "Unlimited opportunities".

That grin is like the perfect combination of cute and menacing. Good luck keeping that one contained. ;)

Oh, when the wee ones learn to get around! He sure looks happy to be able to reach and do things.

We doubled up our Superyard and put it in front of the fireplace area. Our preschooler can climb over it, but he seldom does anymore. We're just going to leave it now, because I know the baby will be crawling in a matter of months.
