We're in TROUBLE, now!

If I hadn't seen it with me own eyes, I'd wouldn't have believed it myself!

Look what this resourceful Little Stinker has figured out how to do...

He watched in awe (you could see the wheels turning!) as each of his big brothers came in and went back out of the front door (where he knew they were playing) and it wasn't 15 seconds before he had crawled over...

Pulled himself up onto his tippy, tippy-toes...

Scooted himself to the side as it unlatched...


Stepped backward and around to open it...


Steadied himself (remember that he's NOT walking and barely standing, so this nearly knocks him over backward)...

And was OUT in a flash! (Notice he NEVER looked back!)



I couldn't believe it!
I wish I'd had the video-camera handy, but my camera was closer (as usual... I'd just taken the pics from the prior post!), so I made him do it again while I took these photos... no problem!
He was thrilled with himself, much to my dismay!
(I may have to start keeping the door locked!)

Oh no!!! My Ella very intently watches her brothers and also tries to copy them!!! ARGH!! He is a cutie!

Oh yes, you are definitely in trouble now! It looks like you might have a few more inches and months until he can reach the lock?

That's why all of my doors have knobs instead of handles! : )

You are in T.R.O.U.B.L.E. this summer. HA HA HA, I can't believe he isn't walking... yet has the desire to keep up with his brothers. Isn't it sad how they want so desperately to be 'big boys' and we want to bottle them up.

Daynen is not going to be left behind! I love how determined they can be at this age, he loves his brothers and wants to be out there with them! Sela is still in this stage...

Oh, Look out you could be in for it with this one. Not even walking and already sneaking out. Good luck. Sabra
