Over the last couple of days Jeremy has just started to be able to climb onto the living room sofa by himself. He, like Harry, loves to play there with the pillows and gets frustrated when he can't get up, although until Harry who tended to whine when he couldn't do something, Jeremy just grunts looking for help. This morning Jeremy made his first solo ascent of our bed, a milestone I remember particularly well from when Harry was younger. Jeremy's more than a full month ahead of Harry on this one, but he's a lot bigger and taller than Harry was. Somehow I see this ability to climb and overcome their environment as a major advancement. Or, maybe it just makes them seem like boys.
