Zeke is a climber. He is the first of our kids to BE a climber. I try to just let him go while keeping an eye on him to make sure he stays safe. It stresses Jason out though. These are some pictures of Zeke's current favorite place to climb onto. He loves to get up here and look at the kids playing outside (when they are around the back of the house) or to look at the birds on the feeder and the deer in the field. I'm sure he will love looking at the cows once they come back too. I try to get him to stay down on the cedar chest, and to kneel while he looks out the window. But he just loves to use the window sill as a little seat. Here are some pictures of the big boy:
Here he is checking out the deer in the field. These guys were around for a few days, and Zeke learned to say and sign "deer" while watching them (it comes out more as dee-oo).
And just for more Adventures in Climbing. The other night Zeke figured out that he could climb up onto our kitchen chairs (his brother left one in front of the sink and he climbed up and tried to eat soap bubbles). After I put the chair back at the table, he pushed it out a little and climbed up onto it. Next thing I know, I turn around and he is sitting in the middle of the kitchen table!!! Crazy boy.
