You know, sky mall magazines sell those stairs/ramps for pets to get up onto beds/couches. Maybe you should invest in one for Dylan?

ah, yes. The ever popular Up:Down:Repeat game! I solve this problem by taking all the cushions off of the couch and allowing the little one to climb up and down by herself. She’ll do this for hours. Actually, she only does it for 20 minutes but that’s something like 2 hours in baby time!

He’s soooo cute though. Those cheeks! That smile. I want one. Don’t suppose I can have yours? (sigh) OKAY, then.

Man, can I relate. We have this same problem with our front stairs, which are wooden but lead to a concrete pathway. Our days are filled with ups and downs, and near saves from ER visits.

Oh, holy hell. We are totally living parallel lives right now. Only difference is that MY little D does more of the grunting and pointing than actual talking. He also makes this horrible sound that makes me think there is a baby goat somewhere in the house dying a horrible and painful death.

Gah.

At least he’s not grunting for other reasons. Consider yourself lucky.

We are also living parallel lives, it seems. Up, down, ball, ball, ball. No. Ya. Ball, ball, ball. It’s like the world’s most annoying song playing over and over and over….

Been there. About to be there again soon. Ugh.

This is what my 13 month old did to me yesterday.

Hands me the board book to read. I open it, point out the dog, he grabs it, closes it, then gets mad I’m not reading it, hands it to me.

But Dylan does look VERY proud of himself on that chair.

Ahhhhh, but look how proud he looks!

I guess it’s different considering I can objectively think he’s adorable, but then if I suddenly become irritated or bored I can simply walk away…

Yessssssss. Oh my gosh.

Up bup bup up bup bup up up up up.

Ow dlow dlow dlow dlow. (which, though annoying, is like the cutest noise ever, because he thinks he can’t say down, though he can say dit-dee for daddy, so if he can say ow, he could say dow right?)

Baw Bawl bawl bawl baw baw. Pqckqqqqqqqqqqq! (that last, indicating the explosion noise made by the toy Death Star on Daddy’s shelf)

Bay beer ber bear bear bayer bay beer (“bear-bear” is the lovey of choice)

Also HOORAY because I originally “met” you on twitter via someone RTing you, but your twitter profile doesn’t have a link here. And I randomly found you here via Mommy Uncensored. So HOORAY now I can stalk you in full… muahahaha.

Totally there with you. Although Nick will use whatever is a available to try and climb up. A chair, a toy, Daddy’s laptop… all of which ultimately end up with him falling. We get dowdowdowdowdowdowdow a lot. Especially when he’s done eating. It will go something like dududududu dowdowdowdowdow. It’s cute, until he realizes he has to be cleaned off from eating and then we get the pterodactyl shrieks. I am toddler, hear me screech.

*blink* Dude.

That’s why babies are made cute.

I’m just sayin.

Not that I know everything or anything, but let’s all be honest: you know we wouldn’t be able to stand this shit if they were ugly. THEREISAIDIT!

:) He’s REALLY cute, though, so shouldn’t that mean he does less of this stuff? Did he not get the memo? No? Mail was stopped while on vacay, perhaps? Pesky.

I see you’ve given him a stool and it didn’t work, but I was going to suggest another use for your sex wedge thingy, if you still had it.
He is damn cute. Though the picture is quiet and I can turn off the computer, so I imagine in RL it’s not so charming. :)

Kathy

Has he figured out how to drag the stool around the house to get into stuff in other rooms? My least favorite stage ever.

Mighty Dylan has conquered a chair that still dwarfs him.

Would putting the “sex-pillow” (aka, now a child’s play thing) in front of the chair work? At least that way he could slide down and you’d only have to pick him up – right?

Oh great, there goes my future. The baby is already trying to face plant into everything possible ala Dylan…next I get to help with up and down! yay!

Sarah

LOL. SUCH fun (not) at that age!! *G* Soon enough he’ll be doing it on his own, though..and you’ll long for the game :D

Further reinforcement of my theory that toddlers learn from the family pets how to drive us INSANE in the most efficient way possible. Dylan is demonstrating a textbook variation of the “Inside Outside” maneuver that he picked up from Cat.

I remember those loops. Nowadays, all I here is machine gun noises out of my 7-year-old’s mouth.

Ehh.. Could be worse. At least he’s asking for help. My little brother went thru the ‘Invincible toddler’ phase. He would climb up things, then fling himself down head-first. Off of anything. Including stairwells. My mum put a crash helmet on him. And a leash.
