Monkey Man

Eli has always been a climber, but recently he has gotten just tall enough to finally accomplish most of his climbing goals. I walk into rooms and find him standing on the chairs, the couch, the toy piano, the table, his toy fire engine, and, most recently, a combo of windowsill and elliptical trainer. He is adventurous, curious, fearless, and strong- a bad combo. :)

I don't know what to do, because, on the one hand, I love that Eli loves to climb, and I don't want to stifle his natural abilities and what he likes to do, but, on the other hand, I don't want to watch him get himself into dangerous situations and just sit by and let it happen! I'm trying to strike a good balance, but I'm sure I'll kick myself when he falls from somewhere high and ends up in the emergency room!

Either way, he's an adorable little monkey, and I love watching him learn and grow.
