We are definitely in for it. In the last few weeks he has started to put it together, taking steps on his own and while he generally flops down and goes back to crawling when he really wants to get moving this new thing he has discovered, climbing, is what really gets him motivated. We have had to learn to not leave cushions or things staggered like steps because all he needs is a ledge to climb up to something higher and he's off to tantalizing feats that make his mother faint.
It occurred to me that I will eventually have to let my children go but as my husband keeps reminding me that I can't put him in a plastic bubble I guess I have to let him go a little bit each day. And hope that in all the tumbles and falls there aren't too many stitches needed.
