Another Milestone Reached: Climbing =/

This morning we had an unexpected surprise from Mr. Amari James. I left him in his playpen so he could watch an episode of Sesame Street while I checked my email. For weeks he has been climbing onto table-tops, chairs,  and the couch and we have waited in anticipation, hoping to God that he would not figure out how to climb out of his crib or playpen any time soon. Well, much to my surprise I hear the Netflix's menu go off on the T.V. and instantly look at the playpen and guess what? Amari was not in there... Nope, stinker baby was sitting on the sofa with the Wii controller in his hand trying to change the show on the T.V. It seriously freaked me out and I couldn't figure out for the life of me how he had gotten out of his playpen. Being the curious person that I am, I put him back in his playpen and pretended to not pay attention to him but watched him out the corner of my eye as he did a high-kick like a cheerleader and straddle the railing before falling onto the couch. He has become our little Tommy Pickles, which means climbing out of the crib will be next... Joy, not!

 Plotting.
 Frustration. 
 The high kick.
Straddling the railing.
Freedom!
 A very happy little boy escaping the confines of his "prison".
