What is something that you really have to watch out for with your LO?
Ellie really doesn't get into things a lot anymore, but she loves to collect rocks. She used to just pick them up and put them in a pile, but lately she's been throwing them because she just learned how to throw, so we have to watch and redirect her and make sure she knows rocks are not for throwing.
LOL...Maggie is so active it might be easier to ask what don't you have to mind with her?
She likes to taste everything - so I watch what she picks up at all times. Climbing - uggh - nuff said. And she never pays attention to what's in front of her, so she's always tripping and falling down, or bumping into stuff. LOL. The sun got in her eyes a few weeks back as she was barrelling down the hall way, and she ended up in a head on collision with a wall. They don't make enough bubble wrap in the world to keep this kid in one piece!

With Isaac it is definitely throwing. He loves to throw stuff but doesn't understand that you can't throw toys that are really hard and also doesn't understand not to throw stuff on the dinner table where you can knock over a drink, etc.
And climbing, the kids loves to climb.
Climbing and throwing. He literally climbs everything. And he uses toys to help climb on to things. And the kid chairs have to be kept up always, and always push in the kitchen chairs. It gets tiring having to constantly worry about him, tell him no no. Nothing works. Throwing is the worst at meal time. He'll throw it if he doen't like it, is done, or wants attention. He throws his silverware and sippy cup too. So annoying.
