Thanks to Cameron

I've been so happy that Taya is 1 now and still doesn't climb our stairs in our apartment, BUT the other day Cameron said, "honey, look!". So I came around the corner and Taya was climbing the stairs with the help of her father. This was 3 days ago and ever since I can't keep her off of them. I'm leaving Chicago to go back to Utah in 2 days and was so grateful we didn't have to buy a baby gate the whole time we lived here (with limited space in our car on the way back we've tried to buy as little as possible!). Anyway, yesterday Cameron blocked the stairs with our stoller, some boxes and a bunch of other random things and when I finished the dishes I couldn't find Taya. I asked Cam where she was and heard giggling at the top of the stairs. She was at the very top laughing, doing who knows what up there! Somehow she had gotten through his "homemade baby gate" and climbed to the top. I swear one of these days she's going to give me a heart attack. Today she found a piece of gum, put a whole golf ball in her mouth, almost swallowed an earring and tried to get out of the bathtub by herself. It's been quite the week!

This is how happy she was when she got to the top :) ....

I took a little video of her going up the stairs (mainly just for her grandma's). Aslo, this is Danny and Caitlin's dog by the way. Taya can't really figure out "dog" yet, it's always "dob" or "bob" haha.

Mady's favorite thing in the world is climbing stairs as well. Leave it to Dad to teach them how to do things like that!!

All these little things that they start doing all at once. She's growing up mommy. Now you will have to pull her feet down slowly so she can learn to do down.

Oh the stairs, so exciting! Haha. Jack fell down the stairs about 10 times and he turned out ok, so don't stress too much! Haha. She is SOOO cute Ashley, I can't wait till you guys get back so I can see her! And you of course! =)

What a little speed racer, she is so funny! Everything she does, shes does FAST. Her inquisitiveness and willfulness will do her well someday...gray hairs for you, bright future for her :) Love you Miss you!

She is so cute!! What a sweet happy baby! I have one that really keeps me on my toes too. Today Sophie found an old bottle of prescription medicine in the junk drawer that I didn't know was there and ran in holding it and chewing on something. I gasped and stuck my fingers in her mouth and found that it was a big wad of gum. Surely another treasure she found in the junk drawer. She's crazy!!
