I realize that Peyton would have eventually acquired these skills, but to have an older sister demonstrate, and then assist her in learning this new skill, prematurely, has made my life as a mother, prematurely more exciting..
Peyton has known how to get on top of whatever her little heart desires, to get whatever her little heart desires.. Okay, not EVERYTHING, but just about.. she has chairs and beds managed. She didn't have couches managed just yet, until Ashley "helped" her. Now Peyton can get herself on to the couches, and even better, on the front room couches, to stand on the back and access the railing that separates the dining area from that room.. SO FUN!!
One more thing to say "no" to.. one more thing..
