A week ago we let Carter out of the gate to see what he would do and he immediately went to the stairs. From there we thought he would just do a few to see what it was all about and give up but instead he went from the bottom to the top without pausing! He LOVED reaching to the top and discovering the whole new world up there full of big brother's toys. Since then we have let him climb a few times and every time it is the same thing, bottom to top in 1 minute flat! We have a big climber on our hands.
