Orion and the Balusters (VIDEO)

Sure, Orion's an exciting kid... at the caliber of a Seahawks surprise come-from-behind victory. Tonight, he pulled himself up to standing using the upstairs railing for the kids and I to see!

In this 2 minute video, Orion is seen crouching, flat on his feet, practically sitting on his bottom as well and really checking out the straight and twisted metal balusters with his hands.  Fast forward a couple minutes, he pulls himself up using the balusters; takes a couple side-steps to our delight; to our fright he also tries to climb over!  After around 4 to 5 minutes upright, he lowers himself to sit and lay down.  Good job, Orion!

Now... does anybody out there have a good suggestion how to keep their kids from climbing over the 2nd story railing?  Forget about saying, "No".  We need something physically in place.  Thanks!

Where's Orion? (Photos)

An Orion adventure today: I was tinkering around in the kitchen and I noticed Orion wasn't in the TV room. "Where's Orion?!" Not in the kitchen nook, not in the hallway, so I walked into the master bedroom where Thomas was napping. There he was! Orion was practically on his dad, trying to put his feet up the back of his shirt! The photo shown here was taken on a different day but was probably what Orion did to get up on the bed. Way to go, Orion!!
