"Leaving a trail of destruction that's second to none..."

Zeke likes to wander aimlessly around the house, making messes as he goes. He will go from one spot to another, pulling things out of drawers and off shelves, spreading them out as he crawls away. Here are a few of his favorite dumpsites.

Okay, this isn't really a mess, but it's pretty funny. He likes to try to crawl under the dining room chairs, but he high centers himself on the bar. Somebody has to save him everytime.

He loves to pull the kids' boots off our shoe shelf by the front door. I actually couldn't get in the door one day because he and the boots made it impossible to open.

Random papers and art supplies that he took out of the kids' craft cabinet. He also pulls coloring books and our big roll of paper out of there. He hasn't discovered the drawers with the crayons, markers, and scissors yet, thank God.

The only drawer in the kitchen he gets to play with. He has had everything in the front half of the drawer out at one time. The drawer is kind of hard to pull out, so he doesn't get to the back half very often.

Well, those are just a few of Zeke's hotspots. Though these pictures don't include the bookshelf, the computer desk, his toy box, the wooden puzzles under his crib, and the dirty towels basket in our bedroom. This little man likes to explore his surroundings, but I'm hoping I can teach him to clean up as well as he dirties down.
