My Monkey

Caleb is my wild monkey child! If you take your eyes off of him for one second he is into something. When he was 18 months old he went through a climbing stage and climbed everywhere. He climbed places that I thought were impossible. It took him no time to figure out how to climb out of his crib and not only could he come out but he could climb in also. That put him in a big boy bed much sooner than my previous two. He also went through a stage where he threw everything away. I was having to constantly check the trash can. If I couldn't find something then most likely it was in the trash.




This is Caleb's baby shoe. Where's the other one you ask? Well apparently Caleb decided that he didn't need that one so he got rid of it. I didn't notice that it was gone until it was too late and trash day was over. All of my other boys have a pair of course that I've saved but Caleb must of desired to be different. He only wanted one for keepsakes!



He'll stop at nothing. Diapers sure...these are clean diapers too. Who cares..He must of decided they needed to go away.



This was just the other day. I went to give him a bath and when I took his diaper off this is what I found. Seriously..where does it end with this kid.

I've said before how good of an eater Caleb is. He'll eat just about anything. When I'm cooking and have stuff on the counter he just grabs constantly. Surprisingly it doesn't affect his eating at the dinner table so I usually let him have something but the things he grabs amaze me! He's grabbed a frozen french fry and actually eaten it. Raw potatoes that I've cut up. The other night he grabbed a piece of broccoli that I had taken out of the freezer. He stops nowhere..this kid WILL eat!

Kennedy was a climber, too! She could climb up on the baby gate, stand on the top, and jump to the other side!

How funny. He certainly has a mind of his own!
Our little one (nineteen months) is all over the place, too. She hasn't decided she wants to climb out of the crib, yet. Keeping our fingers crossed...

I had a kid like that. He was a climber and he made me a nervous wreck!

He used to love to take his p.j.s and diaper off, so we used to cut off the feet of his sleepers and put them on backward. That way he couldn't unzip them.

What cracks me up is that when I try to feed my kids healthy food they turn up their noses. But if they find dirty food on the floor, to them it's a perfectly acceptable smorgasboard. :) I think it's a boy thing!

He And Me + 3 said...

That is funny. Gotta keep your eyes on him. I have one of those too.

Oh, Stephanie. This post is seriously one that I have been composing in my head for quite some time. What motivates our children to hide and to throw things away? Case in point: I went to dump our bathroom trash today and discovered the toys I have been looking for all week.

Oh, and the case of the missing show...yup, that is definitely an unsolved mystery in our house too. :)
