.it used to be if we left something…anything on the coffee table we could count on david knocking it down. then it got a bit challenging during meals because he started reaching for our plates, napkins, etc. now he is reaching up onto the counters to see what he can grab and pull down. we joke that he has a go-go gadget extenda-arm because i try *i swear, i do!* to move things out of his reach, but the kid finds a way to get a hold of it. so that’s way if you stop by our home, you’ll find every surface perfect clear and clean…ahh, not really! this kid is into everything!!

    David! Don’t pull everything off the table. When I was feeding him once, I got up to grab a wet paper towel and came back to find his food on the floor. Little rascal!

    Lisa, I just read the chapters you have posted about David and my heart melted. Thank you for sharing your struggles and joys about your precious little boy. We too had some struggles with my son, and it is always neat to see how GOD is in control!

    Lisa, I just wanted to say thank you for your blogs. They inspire me to see the good in all things, no matter how bad they seem at the time.

    My husband ordered two of your necklaces for me and my best friend and I love it!!

    Thanks again!! :)

    I received my “Joy” necklace and it is beautiful. Thank you for being so creative and thoughtful. David and Matty are certainly lucky little boys.

    Your post, once again, cracked me up. We used to call Sean “Stretch Armstrong” because he could reach what we thought for sure was beyond him. Now that he is taller there is nothing beyond him. He has gotten a little better about allowing things to be on counters but he still doesn’t like things on tables. I enjoy your stories so much. Have a great weekend.

    You’d never think the little guy could reach something six feet away. You have to see it to believe it!

    When my daughter started walking this year at age 5, we found baby proofing to be a real challenge because she can reach higher than most toddlers! As much as it is a pain, I do enjoy that she is doing so well!
