Seriously – he just did this.
Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

Oh boy! At least he wasn’t under it. When I was 2, I tried climbing my dresser and it tipped over on to me. Couple stitches in my head, otherwise, I was okay. My mom, on the other hand…. well, I suppose you can imagine.

So true! I’ve heard stories like yours and they terrify me! I bet your mom still isn’t over it.

Is that your nightstand?! Oh boy. Look at his guilty little face, lol.

Yes, it is! And it is full – so has some weight to it. Holy smokes!

Yesterday morning while I was brushing my teeth, I heard a huge thump. I ran into my bedroom (literally 3 steps away) and saw Raegan on top of my night stand. She had cleared the top of it and was sitting happily on top. I nearly had a heart attack. I’m terrified she’s going to do something like this….
His guilty face is awfully cute tho…..

I swear, by the time I wake up tomorrow, every piece of “small” furniture will be in our basement in storage. B is going to freak out over this – and I can’t even say I’ll blame him! This freaked me out beyond belief!
Raegan is going to be a good little climber! She definitely knows where she wants to go and tries to get there! I would recommend a sleep sack now before she starts trying to climb her crib rails 😉

She’s always slept in a sleep sack so no worries there…but anywhere else she’s all over everything. Kitchen chairs, couch, coffee table…EVERYTHING. My sister lived without kitchen chairs for years….I just don’t have storage…NO ROOM to get anything out of the way…Just going to have to be vigilant 🙂

Muscle muscle man….

I think I may start calling him that! He makes the cutest little face (and sound) when he flexes his muscles. He didn’t do that this time though (which is our warning that he’s about to try something crazy) – he just toppled it over. Unreal.

Damn little dude! Trying to make a point??
January 24, 2013 at 11:29 am
You just get ready! Your strong boy is coming!!!!
January 24, 2013 at 2:40 pm
Ahhh what a strong little guy!! We are bracing a bunch of furniture to walls this weekend before Alidia starts doing the same. Although I didn’t even think of little furniture like this but I bet that’s the stuff she’ll go for once strong enough! Eeek.
Love his belly!!! 🙂

The face says a really sincere oops?!? Another reminder of more baby-toddler proofing we have got to do here…I am not sure boys ever outgrow the destruction phase!

Uh oh! So glad his toes or fingers didn’t get caught underneath!

What mommy? What?
That is one strong little dude. 😉
