Atticus has had a busy week! In addition to beginning to walk across rooms on his own he also learned to climb stairs and push the baby gate off the recycling bin. At the start of the week he couldn't climb stairs at all. This morning he climbed all 18 of our slippery hardwood stairs without any assistance.
We started putting an old gate over our recycling bins a couple of months ago when Atticus figured out how to remove items from them. Frankly, he's a little obsessed and his first target is always any bottle that happens to be in there. As you can see from the bottom picture, we may need to start keeping the bins outside.
Oh, he also managed to climb into the bathtub on his own last night. One minute he was standing next to it and putting his hands in the water while I undressed Norah. The next second he had pulled himself up and over the edge of the tub. He seemed pleased with himself. I was scared.
Norah continues to be one of the sunniest morning babies I've ever met. I wish she understood the merit of sleeping in on the weekends, but at least she's delightful and thrilled when she gets up at 5:45 a.m.
