That little Leah of ours is turning out to be something else!! Today we ooo-ed and aww-ed over her ability to climb two steps... Later, when the rest of us were busy doing our own thing (and we all assumed Leah was playing on the floor by Hannah where we last saw her), she climbed the entire flight of stairs, wreaked havok in the kids' bathroom, and was playing in the toilet. I got up to look for her and couldn't find her. I asked, "Where's Leah?" and no one even heard me. There was an unidentified noise coming from upstairs so I ran to see what it was... Leah had her arm caught in the toilet (the seat had fallen on her arm while she was reaching into the water)and she was starting to squawk about it.

So, now we have a new rule. ALL bathroom doors must be shut at all times since the upstairs is no longer safe. We need to work on teaching Leah to crawl DOWN the stairs now, and things will be good.

I know Elijah was crawling up the stairs when he was Leah's age, but I don't remember him being so sneaky about it! She is definitely a toddler now even though she's not yet walking. She'll probably take her first step in a few weeks if she's like the other two, but probably won't walk for a couple more months... I miss the stage where she sat in one place and quietly played with her toys... oh wait, that was Elijah :)

Kaia is also sneaky about doing this stuff. She is a great climber.
