let the climbing begin

One of Fletcher's new favorite things: climbing. The other night he figured out how to climb in the back of his Tonka truck and onto the couch. Yesterday, he was climbing in the John Deer wagon. Last week, he figured how to climb onto his rocking chair. He is very proud of himself once he accomplishes the climb, but not so satisfied when he tries to get back down/out. It is rather funny to watch him attempt this, but also a bit dangerous. The back of the Tonka truck tips, so when he leans, not expecting it to move, he falls back and crashes onto the floor. When in the wagon, he thinks he can just step out and land. The foot difference is not as close as he thinks. He gets help with this, only because he is on cement. And when he's on his rocking chair, he stands, facing the back of the chair, so when he wants to get down, he hasn't quite figured out how to turn around and sit to get down. Getting down from the couch is the only thing he has actually mastered thus far. So, with all the climbing, our new teaching task is "how to safely get down". Hopefully it doesn't take him too long to catch on, because when he is "stuck" he just screams this God awful scream that rings your ears.
