Our Little Monkey

This morning, J left Jax in our living room while she went and put on her bathing suit for swim lessons. We have left him alone in the (babyproofed beyond belief) living room countless times and he is either a) really good about playing by himself, watching TV, or some combination of the two, or b) screaming his head off and crying for you while standing at the gate between the living room and our hallway. Usually its the latter scenario.

This morning, Jaxson was quiet as J (quickly) got changed, which was a relief I’m sure, as its especially unnerving listening to your child screaming first thing in the morning for no good reason. When she came out a moment later, he was sitting in the middle of his water/sand table, which is empty and still inside as we’ve been unable to set it up outside due to all the rain lately.



He stood up as soon as she came out, like “Uh oh! I’m in big trouble!” The water table was an unexpected conquest for our little monkey! Granted, its not too surprising since he’s been able to climb up on the couches for a while now. Lately, he’s even been throwing his leg up over the coffee table trying to hoist himself up on it. And he’s been pulling up on the crib rail but is nowhere near being able to get his leg up and over that hurdle yet, thankfully.

We’re not ready to move him to the toddler bed just yet, but I have a feeling that milestone will be coming sooner than later. The last thing our clumsy boy needs to do is climb over the railing, fall on our wood floors, and break something. So for now, we are just playing the waiting game, and thankful that the video monitor in his room is super-sensitive for the day he does manage to climb out of the crib, so we will be quickly alerted if/when he does climb out. Look forward to a post about that adventure soon. LOL

Off subject though, wouldn’t he make the cutest little underwear model?! Seriously, we need to get Calvin Klein on the phone ASAP. 😉

Blue Steel!
