Like a Monkey

I am so tired, and it has been a long day. The kids have been tag-teaming all day so that one naps while the other one is awake. So, just a quick thought for today. I was playing with J this afternoon, when he walked up me by holding my hands and scrambling up me with his feet. I could not believe that A) he is strong enough to do this after all the months we worked on rolling over, crawling, sitting up, and walking and that B) he is fearless enough, after being too cautious to try anything remotely dangerous. It was a simple moment, but for me it was thrilling to see him hanging from my arms like a monkey. Just an average little boy doing what little boys do.
