Bless his little heart, he exerts so much time and energy into getting household objects in his grasp only for mommy to come along and take them away or move them out of reach. He hears a whole lot of "no, no, no" and although I'm convinced he knows what it means...he ignores me and keeps on going. There are several things that he makes attempts to get into everyday like the trash can in his nursery, the magazine basket, the kitchen cabinets, and the dishwasher. There have been a couple of times that he has been happily digging away in the trash can or the cabinets, I come around the corner quietly, and he jumps a mile when he notices me watching him. He KNOWS what he is not supposed to get into but it doesn't keep him from seizing the opportunity when it is presented!
|Dish towels are never safe and do not stay hanging on the oven door for long|
|When he drops one, it gets stuck under his wheels and he drags it around the house, so of course that means he has to get another one...|
|This happens on a daily basis (sometimes several times a day)...what is so appealing about a trash can and dirty diapers?|
|He loves to crawl on top of the scale...that tile floor is cold and hard...he doesn't seem to notice.|
|There used to be other things on this shelf...no more! Now he just crawls up to this platter and pats it...|
|Here he is WITH his magazine sliding back down the pillow...|
|He does not look one bit remorseful!|
|Maybe he was ripping out a recipe that he wants me to try...|
|He loves cords of all kinds...of course he does...electricity...shock...how much fun are those?|
|Does he crawl BESIDE the stool to get to his brush? Oh no, no...what fun would that be? He goes UNDER the stool!...|
|I dropped this bag while putting up groceries...it had barely hit the floor before Kellan had his hands on it!|
|And last but not least, our little 4th generation carpenter is taking matters into his own hands and "fixing" the loose trim board that daddy hasn't fixed yet!|
I know this is just the beginning...he isn't even walking yet and he is into everything that he is not supposed to be! We can't wait for the new adventures that he will bring. Michael and I love this little boy so much and there is never a boring day with him around. He definitely keeps us on our toes!
