My Amazing Acrobat

My sons 2 year birthday is fast approaching and I am beginning to think that he is taking classes in his sleep to be an amazing acrobat. I sit here and watch him as he performs all of these stunts and think to myself " Now where in the world did he pick that up from". Seriously Shawn and I do not stand on our heads, jump on the couch, jump from toys, climb the back of the couch to get into our TV cubby and we most certainly do not climb the cupboards in the kitchen and try to get on top of the countertops. I mean for Pete's Sake where does he see all of this? Who teaches him all of these tricks? Who has taught him to be this amazing acrobat that likes to scare the crap out of me? Oh, lets talk about him standing on his head.... yep, I am sitting in my chair today reading my magazine and he screams out to me "Mommy, Mommy". Well, I glance over at him and I had to take a second glance and blink a few times to see if I saw him correctly. Yep, indeed he is leaning off of the foot stool, balancing himself on his head and his hands are behind his back. Where in the world did he think to do that? Does he like to see his Momma nervous? To think that he isn't even 2 years old yet and he is doing things like this makes me quite nervous. Oh, what am I in for as he gets older? Do I need to buy this boy some protective gear? Now let's talk about him climbing on the kitchen chairs to get on top of the kitchen table.... yep, you heard me correctly. Now would you like to know what happened next? Ok, well as he is climbing up that chair, he falls off the other side, screaming bloody murder for about 15 seconds, asks to be put down and then does the same thing again not even 5 minutes later. Ah, and then he likes to pile things on top of one another and try to climb them to get to the highest point on the couch or a chair. Now seriously..... why be so daring?!? Does he really have to keep his Momma running 24/7 ? Well, you know me and you probably know me quite well by now. I always have my camera close by and I always gotta snap a picture and then of course tell him to not climb the furniture, don't stand on your head, get off that chair like that and do not climb the drawers of the cupboards to get to something on top of the counter. So, as my nerves are shot and I am ready for bed..... here are some pictures of my AMAZING ACROBAT. Introducing to you all " THE Crazy, Courageous and Captivating Cameron" *(Enjoy your show)*

OMGosh, I felt as though I was looking at Kolby. Welcome to the world of boys. I can't tell you how many heart attacks I have had since my boy entered the world. Wild as a bronco, but so much fun! Gotta love those boys:)

I hear you. Lukas is constantly climbing on things. We have had a lot of falling off of chair accidents.

I think he just might need a helmet and knee pads for his birthday! LOL

Like MiMi, welcome to the world of boys! They are just born that way. You have to accept it and continuously pray for their safety!! No other explanation; and as they get older, I think it gets worse! Especially with 2 :)

boys are born knowing these things. it is not something that have to see to learn. they just know. (I am convinced of this)
