Crazy Girl

When we found out Logan was a climber, people assured me it was just because he is a boy. So, what does that say about Lizzy? That she is really a boy? Because her climbing has started at a younger age than Logan's did.
Don't worry, this ladder really isn't as steep as it looks, I took the picture sideways to give you a better idea of how high she climbed on the ladder. Speaking of the ladder, it's new! It goes up to our attic where James is laying down boards as I type. Building a new room for it's storage potential just wasn't enough; now we're converting the attic into storage space!

Can you tell we're trying to get as comfortable as possible in our house? Based on the wonderful down turn of the economy we know we will be in this house for a VERY long time. However, at this point we've done so much to it (the house) that we would have a very hard time moving out!

We've repainted, laid tile in the kitchen and the bathroom, recarpted, built shelves in the garage, built a brand new room out of thin air, and now we've installed this ladder and storage in the attic. I've said it about 3 times before, but this time I think I really mean it. We are done with house projects. What else could there possibly be to do? Please don't answer that question. Don't give James any more ideas!

Anyway, here is a video demonstrating Lizzy's monkey skills.

I had to include this next video simply because she gave me such a precious smile.

Too cute :) Climbing is DEFINITELY not limited to boys in our house, so I think you're okay to assume Lizzie is all girl! Rachel is oldest & she started climbing before Sam was born (She was 10 1/2 months old when Sam was born), so I don't think it even has to do with having an older brother! But good luck with two climbers, it's sure an adventure!!

That is terrifying. Chloe has just recently conquered the stairs.

Wow, more home improvements. You guys amaze me and make me jealous at the same time.

My girls (well, the twins anyway) have always been more adventerous than their older brother. That's why gymnastics has been perfect for them!
