Daredevil in the Making

Lately Nick has been standing on his toys-even the ones with wheels. The first time he tried standing on his zebra, he fell on his head. The second time, his daddy saw him do it and went to stand behind him. We're not entirely sure how to get him to stop.  Check out how crazy his hair is getting. We need to get it cut soon, but the curls are so cute we keep putting it off.

His balance is actually not too bad, but he falls more when he tries this on toys with wheels. (!) It's pretty cute if we're around to spot him, but he tends to try it when we are looking the other way. He doesn't seem to understand that it's okay to play with the zebra, but not okay to stand on it.


  1. Maybe this means he is going to be an olympic gymnast! See if you can teach him to do a double backwards flip and land with both feet together. This is about when they start training kids for those things, isn't it? ;)

  2. I bet he'd try it, too! Then I'd have to deal with the tears when he whacked his head on the hardwood. Nick has already mastered the somersault, so perhaps he does have a future in gymnastics. Or stunt horseback riding.
