8 Month Climber

For the past month or so we've been really busy.  Yes, there was the earthquake/tsunami and related issues but the bigger challenge for me personally has been keeping up with Little Miss Mega's climbing.  With the aftershocks, power outages, packing up relief goods, etc. our house has been much messier than normal.  However, through the eyes of this 8 month old, it appears the fun challenges have multiplied!
Big brother had stacked up some milk carton blocks and arranged an office on his table (I guess my messy office approach is rubbing off on him...) but once he vacated the seat his little sister climbed right up to take over the office duties.

We also are having an issue with our stairs. Miss Mega figured out how to climb them about a month ago (on the Sun. AM of course...) but it took until this past week for her to love climbing them.  Now, wherever she has the chance to scoots right up to the top.  Again, it was a Sunday morning, while we were getting ready for church, that she discovered the love of climbing.  

While I do let her climb whenever possible, we do everything we can to stop the unsupervised expeditions!

Thankfully and other online places are getting back to normal with their delivery services because I had to order another child safety (mother's sanity) gate much sooner than I was expecting!
