Houston, We Have a Problem

A stair problem that is!

The girls had just really discovered the stairs probably last week. They enjoyed crawling over to them and just using the first step to pull themselves up, as seen below.

Ruthie has made a discovery though!

She made it up 4 stairs by herself!

I captured a similar moment on video. She doesn't like to climb up the stairs very high when I am trying to get her to, so she only went up 2 stairs, but you get the point. The whole up-down thing she is doing is a little game that she has been playing recently. She just holds on to random objects and does squats. The girl is going to have thighs of steel by the time she is 1!
Don't mind my hand in the video. I felt the need to be ready to catch her since this is a newly acquired skill and all.

Off to the baby gate section of Babies R Us I guess....

if you don't already have a gate at the top of the stairs, I highly recommend the one I have at the top of my stairs. it is secured into the wall and swings open. it makes me feel better knowing that it's mounted into a stud when Jamison throws his entire body against it...or when lily shakes it at night to get our attention.i think we're leaving Sacandaga tomorrow - rain in the forecase.

i'm replying to your comment on my post. I did notice that you and Ruthie had the same face but i was going to write anything because then I would have to restrain my self from making a comment about your picture eye. and i didn't want to go there. but now i jus did.
but i did think it was sweet that she finally expressed some of her mama in her daddy face.

Go Ruthie!! I dread the day Micah finds the stairs. Thankfully, I have a few months!
