Our son Makoa has an incredible ability to overcome obstacles. At 8 months he was climbing before he was walking...
When he started walking at 10 months I knew the "barriers" were pointless because nothing would stop his curiosity.
Now at 20 months old, I am secretly impressed at his ability to scale walls.
I've always heard stories of parents finding their toddlers on top of the fridge or climbing the doorframes. I just never thought that a child that I would produce would have such agility and strength, not to mention determination, persaverance, and foresight. I just love him :)
