Upward mobility

Do you see that blue and orange thing next to Radar's toy box? You might think that looks like the 'Sit n' Spin' that Tia Marco gave Radar for his birthday...

...in which case you would be wrong. That there is what we call the 'Step n' Climb'. It's Radar's favorite step ladder because when he steps on it, it makes music (which also alerts mommy that Radar is on the climb!)

"So what's the big deal?" you ask. Radar climbs into his box and picks out the toys he wants. Is it that I'm worried he'll fall out of his box and go BOOM!

Not really. See, the toy box is not actually a toy box. It is just the next step along his climb!!! And if the toys inside are not piled high enough...

... then you simply keep moving up, using the rim on the toybox.

And if that's not high enough, well then there's the safety gate and book shelves themselves. Radar is fearless... undaunted by that silly force called gravity. Mommy, on the other hand, is very daunted by the risks that my little scaling monkey is taking and at this point, I had to step in and gently place Radar back on the floor....

Which Radar was not at all happy about!!!!


Of course just minutes after this last picture was taken, he was back on the 'Step n' Climb' and once again movin' on up!!

Oh boy....

Lots of love,
Titi and Radar

Time for abuela to chime in. Berra with me please, but this is deja vu all over again. Once, when Radar's mom was Radar's age, there was a terrible crash upstairs in little Titi's room. I ran up and found the chest of drawers(4 drawers high) tipped over, but fortunately caught half way down by a chair. The climber had changed the center of gravity, but fortunately the climber was scared but unharmed. And she was 13 months old! Radar's mom thought that she had to be on her toes before, but now....I don't want to make predictions, expecially about the future, but many forks in the road present themselves, so take them, and remember my loves, it ain,t over 'til it's over, or until the fat lady sings.
