Ethan discovered climbing over the weekend and I can't keep him off of anything. I went to the bathroom, came back and he was on the back of the couch. I pulled him off of the dining room table earlier and he was on top of the entertainment center last night. I can't take my eyes off of him right now. As I type he's trying to make his way over the baby gate into the kitchen. Help!!!! This kid is turning my hair gray. Georgie never really did this, please tell me its a phase that passes quickly.

Adam is definitely part monkey! He's still that way, unfortunately, so I can't say it's just a short phase, sorry! Maybe move the baby gate 2 inches up off the floor so he has a harder time getting his footing?
That's what I did with Adam for a while, now he just pulls it down. If you ever figure out how to stop it, please let me know!

another thought with the gate is to make sure that the side that has the piece that locks it in place is on the side of the gate that they are NOT on so that they cant use that to help them get a leg up....

the gate moved up a few inches helped us too

and the crib tent was a HUGE lifesaver!

Oh no, Jacob was never a climber. Hope it's a short lived phase.

Meant to ask, how was his 1st b-day?

Randi, hate to tell you but Ethan is a shorty. He's 27.5 inches and uses his arms to pull himself up.

Thanks for the baby gate idea Des, I've already raised it for when he wake us from his nap.

Melissa I'm going to go buy one of the tents and be ready, its only a matter of time.

Now I just need to figure out how to keep him off the furniture.

I have no advice, Stacey... Natasha was never a climber or got into anything, we never even houseproof'ed or anything for her... Veronika is not mobile yet, so I have no idea. But she's larger and stronger than Natasha (29.1 inches already) so who knows...

I think Beth was climbing before she could walk. It never stops either!

Climbing leads to jumping, jumping to jumping off and down and then finally mosh diving. Have fun!

Taken today:

Thanks Kim, I should know by now that whatever Ethan starts to do Beth did it to. Why does he insist on being like Beth?

Edited to add: I love that top photo, she looks so sweet and graceful

Jackson is definitely a climber/jumper...he will climb anything he can. It makes me nervous as heck, lol. He's been doing it for at least a year now and is showing no signs of getting bored with it!

Gracyn wasn't too much of a climber. Hope he slows down for you a bit!

Just a phase??? That's a good one! The older they get, the higher they go... at least as far as Trace is concerned. Ugh!
