My toddler is a mischievous little devil sometimes (also cute as a button which makes it worse!)..

So what is this a picture of?

Well, let me explain.. I was in my bedroom with Cameron, checking my mail- Then I hear a delighted squeal.. One minute he's playing quietly with his toys right next to me.. the next..

He's crawled underneath his playpen to get his monitor.. Which I had stowed "safely" on a lamp table behind the playpen.. and baby's finally gotten to it.. thus the excited squealing..

So this is his new "hobby".. squeezing himself into small spaces.. I am definitely not thrilled about this.. He's a quick little skurrier.. It took me 10 minutes to coax him out of there (no, he wasn't stuck surprisingly enough he's quite limber)..

This is him less than five minutes after I got him out (notice the blanket stuffed under the playpen to deter his mischief).. trying to get behind the playpen again, this time via between the chair and the playpen.. Yay, toddlerdom. Lol.

Does anyone else toddler do this kind of thing? Please tell me I'm not alone, pulling out my hair here.

My little guy is a climber.  He's 2 and this week we caught him on the top bunk of the bunk bed.  Doesn't sound too alarming until you know that I took the ladder off the bunk bed (its laying on the top bunk) to keep him from climbing up there.  He found some way to monkey up there without using the ladder.  I'm guessing by climbing up the foot board of the bottom bunk and then pulling up on the foot board of the top bunk somehow... I'm not exactly sure.  Its amazing he didn't fall trying to do it.

He's squeezed in and under things though.  I've had to rescue him a few times because he got stuck someplace.  So he prefers to climb, probably because he doesn't get stuck nearly as often.

My daughter, who will be 22 in a couple of weeks, used to climb everything. EVERYTHING! She climbed out of her baby bed, at three months. Her grip was sooo strong and up she'd go. Before she was even 1 I'd have to pluck her off the door facings, or she'd just hang there. Part monkey, she was. I'd have to turn the playpen over and put her under it just so I could go to the bathroom. Then the little buger learned how to burrow under it. She was just a mover and a squirmer, couldn't be still, had to explore. It was like holdin onto water. She's settled down now, a little. Have fun with him, he looks like a keeper. Toodles.
