how many times i have used that title already?  let’s see…  she has been walking since she was 11 months old so…  hmmm, ok, i give up, let’s just say “alot”!

jasper lilith has discovered another way to add to my gray hair collection…  she has started climbing from her stool to the toilet and then traversing dead space to get to the bathroom sink… 

so today i walked in and saw jasper filling the bathroom sink up while sitting in it – all curled up and crouched in the sink!  it was funny and cute but then i thought about her falling backward or turning on the hot water and burning herself…  and then it became less funny and cute…

a little later, i heard much singing and hooting so i thought, “she is way too excited to be doing something she is allowed to do…”  and sure enough, this time she was standing up on the bathroom counter trying to put her puka necklace on (which i keep hung up on the mirror and, previously, out of her reach) while dancing in front of the mirror…  again, funny and cute except for the incredibly dangerous element!!

this is jasper attempting to get down before i see her up there…  it’s too late, sweetie!  i can see you!!

and then later on the same day, i hear the water running in the bathroom (which used to mean she was having a tea party but now apparantly can also mean she is bathing in the sink) and go in there to scold her and she is laying on her changing pad, arms behind her head, and turning on the water faucets with her feet!  just laying there and playing in the water with her feet… 

oh, gray hairs…  the gray hairs!
