She full-on climbed onto a wooden chair, stood up on it (tiptoes) and tried to retrieve something off of the middle of a desk... this was about a month ago and I documented it in my brain as a milestone, a big deal. Now this kind of stuff happens all the time. In and out of bathtubs, on and off beds, up and down slides at the park. And I think I'll go look at this, and point at that, and move these rocks from here to there, and pick up this to see what's under it.
I love how strong her arms and shoulder muscles look when she climbs. I also love to see her brain working and body connecting as she decides where she wants to make her next move. The strategizing that goes on is like that of a tiny rock climber practicing her skills on a rock wall in the gym before going out to the real mountain. This foot needs to go there in order for me to get over that bump so I can reach that step up there. She's developing her movement and decision-making skills so she can stealthily take over our whole world.
