Kevin and I arrived at his parent's house tonight to pick Riley up and right after we walked through the door his dad asked his mom, "Are you going to tell them?". I had no idea what the news was going to be, but did NOT expect it to be that Riley climbed TWO stairs on her own today!!
The funny thing is that apparently Kevin responded the same way that his dad did when it happened, with a quick, "And you LET her?". Meanwhile I was all smiles and giggles, running out the door to get my phone so that I could capture this on video. Unfortunately I didn't get much recorded, but we did get to see this amazing feat with our own two eyes. She crawled over to a step, put her little chubber hands on it, raised her knee to the top of the step, and up she went. Lather, Rinse, Repeat.
So it sounds like baby gates are going to be coming out at Grandma and Grandpa Balaban's MUCH sooner than any of us expected!!
