The chairs, yep...all the time, to see how high he can jump off them (very high)...almost higher than he can jump off the 4th step going upstairs. He can also run really fast...and much to my relief he can stop on a dime before he hits the walls. sigh.......He's mastered piling things up to climb up to where he wants to get something. I don't know what he was aiming for yesterday by piling his kid size Adirondak chair, onto his table in his room and trying to add the laundry basket upside down. There isn't anything up that high -- and he must have figured that out because he stopped trying after the laundry basket kept falling off the arm of the chair that was on the table. Good grief...
Anyway, I found myself wondering how he connected that the fan and light are controlled by those chains - they are rarely used (and I yes, I noticed the dust that gives that little fact away). We have a switch on the wall that can dim the lights and control the speed of the fan. He has mastered that, and we don't even have to lift him up to do it anymore. I don't believe he has seen anyone use the chains -- we really never do. He is so darn smart. He made sure I wasn't looking.
Yesterday was his mommy's birthday and we had cake waiting when she came to pick him up. Eric loves the "Happy Birthday" song and we clap when we sing it cause he loves that too.
