Earlier today, my mother's intuition kicked in when I heard a tiny little noise coming from the kitchen. I was not prepared for the scene in front of me. How could anyone be?
My heart definitely skipped some beats as I visualized my baby falling off that counter. I told him to "Wait" which he is really good at and we quickly snapped these pictures.
Our Louis is normally quite an angelic little puppy and is not a counter surfer; however, his 9 month old hormones are in overdrive and he has started doing some strange things lately. There was a jar of honey on top of the microwave...I guess that's what he was after. Little goofball :-)
It was easy for him to get up there by hopping up on the window seat - not so easy to get down though. Don't worry. We very carefully lifted him off the counter and gently set him on the floor. Then we set up a barricade to avoid a repeat performance.
Yesterday Louis carried about 20 toys outside; he usually only plays with one or two a day. Today, he is counter climbing. What will tomorrow hold - yikes!?!?!?
