Stair Stepper.

Today I picked up Ellie and came home, and changed into running clothes.  I left Ellie sitting in the kitchen while I went to fill up my water bottle, and when I came out of the kitchen, she was climbing the stairs.

Yep, on the landing at the second stair.

For a child who can hardly reach the steps, this is a huge accomplishment.

For a mama and a daddy, this is cause to invest in baby gate #2.  I'll be visiting Amazon as soon as I hit "publish" on this post.

And on an unrelated note, an Ellie photo from the weekend, which was a full, fun weekend involving a couple of parties and a long run, and also a mom who kept forgetting the camera.

How the heck do I catch that water?

Hope your week is off to a good start.  What are you enjoying this week?  Anything fun planned?

We're looking forward to the return of Jazz in the Garden, and of course chasing Ellie up the stairs.
Pin It!


  1. Go Ellie, go! Good luck keeping up with that girl, Megan!

  2. Oh my goodness. She is so adorable. She melts my heart!

  3. My granddaughter Molly who is just about a month younger than Ellie has found the stairs as well. I never thought I could be so happy to have a baby climb stairs. Molly and Ellie, you both ROCK! Now the mommies need to buy a gate ASAP! I'm getting one for my house too.

  4. way to go ellie. as for this week i have nothing fun planned my daughter has surgery on friday to get her tonsils and adnoids out. hope you have a fun week though

  5. I don't know whether to congratulate or offer condolences... I am actually more inclined towards the latter. The stairs change EVERYTHING and you will NEVER BE ABLE TO REST ANYMORE NOW.

  6. Wow! Amaaaazing! We only *now* feel comfortable with Sammi taking the stairs by herself, but then again, we didn't have *any* stairs for her first 3 years of life. Btw, we got most of our baby gates (yes, we have lots, all still in service for one reason or another) from Craigslist...
