Although she can't stand on her own for more than 3 seconds, and isn't walking yet, Ellie has become a climber. Put any step stool, stair, or railing in her way and she's trying to climb it. Her latest favorite is the Thomas step stool in the bathroom that her big brother and sister use when brushing their teeth.
Of course the toothbrushes are right there and she knows what to do with them, although she isn't sure which end she should be putting in her mouth.
She ends up standing up on the narrow edges of the 'train', which is hard on her feet, then yells till someone comes to rescue her. Life is fun with Eloise!!!
