Addicted to Trouble


Ever since Tucker could crawl; he's been trying to crawl himself right into trouble. You'd think with five other people in the house, he'd have a plethora of folks to choose to crawl too. Nope, he went right past them all and straight to the door. I'm not sure where he was going or what he was going to do when he got there; maybe he was telling us all in his own baby way that we were all crazy and he wanted no part of this family. As he grows, so does his love for danger. He still heads straight to the door and God bless us all if it's been left unlocked. He's out in a flash, no matter the weather nor his state of dress.

When we unload the dishwasher, the very first thing he goes for are the sharp knives.

There are no counters too high to be climbed, nor doors too bolted to be wheedled through.

You can imagine his delight when he finds the baby lock askew on the cleaning cabinet.

He knows how to open the oven and even holds the back of his hand to the door to feel for heat. NOT HOT!

I've found him in both the washer and the dryer.

He attempts to climb the shelves in the refrigerator like he's scaling his own personal Everest.

So consider this your fair warning world, because one day I'll have to turn him loose on you and I'm afraid it won't be pretty my friends. Not pretty at all.

I'm so glad my son is not a daredevil like this. I don't think I could handle it! So cute ... even with all the injuries.

Tucker is going to do amazing things with his life! With that kind of determination... That's what I keep telling myself about Levi. He's very much the same way. :-)

Heidi said...

Oh MY! What a daredevil! He's a cute one, though! ;)

I think he's been hanging out with the dude. He's currently obsessed with the stove. He tells me it's hot and then tries to go and touch it anyway. Sigh.

I have one too. It's hard to keep up. Good luck.

Liam, Tucker, Gabriel and MJ...those kids are going to turn our hair and stop our hearts. It's a good thing they are so cute and we love them so much!

My son used to get into everything too. I hope he naps well and gives you some rest!

We can only pray he does not run into Asher. The world may destruct. But at least they are cute.

Jenilee said...

I have one of these too! :) my middle one is always looking for trouble or rather in her curiosity she finds trouble! :)

ohhhh yes, I have one of those daredevils too. Mine just loves to jump off of things. He use to jump up straight in the air w/his legs out in front of him and land on his butt.We swore he was going to be a pro wrestler lol. Boys are so funny. I am quite shocked that Aiden hasn't had a broken bone yet....knock.on.wood.
