…she does this! Check out the proud little look on her face!!
As I finished preparing supper (Okay, Does reheating pasta purchased at the grocery store and throwing a pre-made pancake into the microwave count as ‘making supper?’. A funky combo for sure but both got ‘yah’ answers when I asked if she wanted them) I asked Hannah if she was ready to eat. She yelled ‘Yay!!’ and ran for her high chair. Normally I pull it out of it’s storage place but today she carefully manoeuvred it by the Christmas tree and into the middle of the room. As I was complimenting her on her great driving skills she began to climb up the back. Knowing it’s got a great base that can hold her weight I waited to see what would happen. I was as surprised as you when she climbed up and in! So much so that I asked her to do it again as I grabbed my Flip to catch this moment.
It’s more than a little frightening to think about what she might try to climb next!
And the Christmas tree? It still proves to be a great source of entertainment for Hannah as she plays with the decorations daily. Saturday morning she decided she needed help reaching the snowman Mama had carefully placed out of her reach. Creative isn’t she??
Sadly she did reach this cute little snowman on Sunday morning and he was laid to rest (all 300 itty bitty pieces of him) in the kitchen garbage can. Mama was sad as I really wanted this ornament to be one I put on the tree each year as it was the first one she ever made for our tree. Ange (awesome, amazing, wonderful daycare provider!!!) to the rescue though as I purchased a new plastic ornament today – they only had glass when she went – and so after getting a couple of instructions from Ange, Hannah will make Snowman II to adorn our tree for years to come! Oh how happy this makes me!
I’m guessing she thinks if her back is to the tree I won’t figure out what happened! To the best of my knowledge she wasn’t trying to climb the tree when it fell but since I wasn’t watching at the time and given the acceleration of her climbing skills I’m guessing only the angel on top and the snowman decoration watching her really know what happened for sure. And yes, that’s the angel doing a nose dive on the dining room floor.
The tree was quickly righted and the angel placed atop once again. Will it be the last time the tree takes a tumble? One really never knows since it will probably be up for another couple of weeks. Will keep you posted!
