One Couple's Stumblings Through Parenthood and Marriage

Climbing Ambition

Though Julia has taken to toddling as her primary mode of ambulating, she has been climbing for a lot longer. Everything is fair game - couches, table cloths, water bottles - you name it, she'll try to climb it, almost always with success.

It was therefore no surprise that after I myself climbed up on a step stool that a moment later I could feel the little hands of Julia climbing up beneath me. I had to step down and grab the camera. She obliged me with a smile and her head cocked at a playful angle.

I just hope her climbing ambition doesn't excede her climbing skills. I see bruises and knots on her head in her future (yes, I'm psychic).

Drats! I must find someone else you can carry out my plans of bumping you off, this partnership that I have with her will not work if she keeps getting distracted by the camera. I must offer her more of the fine suagry treats that she enjoys, watch your back Ceaser.

Uncle Chrissy, you have always played favorites.

Guy Fawkes - it will take more than a 14 month old to kill me. You may have to turn to my three-year-old twins to finish the job ...
