Elliot Climbs Trees

Today Elliot reached a huge milestone. He discovered tree climbing. This afternoon Elliot was playing in the back yard while I was busy preparing dinner. After being outside a while Elliot ran inside and said very excitedly, “I was sitting in the tree.”

This is huge. I had wondered a few months ago – about the time Elliot figured out how to hide in a different place during hide and seek – when he would start climbing trees. I have such fond memories of climbing trees as a child and I think he will too. He spent the next two hours, until bed time, climbing that tree pretty much non-stop.
