1. I have a climber too. When M was 10 months old we were in Ava’s room. M just started crawling when she was 9 months so she hadn’t been doing it for long. She crawled over to Ava’s little rocking chair, climbed up on it, STOOD up and started rocking and saying heh heh heh heh 🙂 That kid is trouble!

  2. My Snorkie walked at nine months, climbed shortly thereafter. Everyone gave me dirty looks when they’d see him doing the steps at 12 months…now he climbs the fridge, bookcases, etc. Hard to know whether to encourage safe climbing habits or nail his feet to the floor!

  3. My son was probably trying to climb by 10 months. Running by 12 months. He kept us very busy.
    Our family room was a bare depressing place to be for about two years. Why? Because we had to take down all the pictures, lamps and decorations. No unnecesarry furniture like end tables either. There was also a time we had to remove all of the dining room chairs because he’d use them to help him climb to higher locations.
    I was always wondering when I would walk in a room and find him swinging from the chandelier but that never happened. 😉
    Good luck! Hopefully your little climber won’t be as crazy as my son was.
