    It does look like he’s working on his escape plans.

    That’s pretty impressive for six months! He’ll probably walk by nine or ten months, as all of ours did, and then he’ll be a real terror!
    It’s those smart genes, PZ. We’re out to build super-babies. (That’s what my daughter-in-law says, anyway).

    My first tiny person figured out how to climb over the baby cage. My second one didn’t bother, he forced it apart instead and wandered out. He also forced the baby gate open.
    It’s only a matter of time. And not nearly as much time as you’re expecting. It never is.

    Our daughter was about a year and a quarter when she proudly demonstrated to me that she could clamber in and out of her crib—but she had a late start, as she was thirteen months old when we adopted her, and it took a little while for her legs to get strong enough to carry her around after her time in the orphanage. I took little movies of her doing it, and we converted the crib to a baby bed the same day, as it was made to do, and ran out and got a small barrier so she wouldn’t roll out and off at night.
