Mount Everest, here we come!

The toddler, currently 2.75 years of age, just recently discovered the joys of climbing.  Up until now, we've been able to keep him in his crib by taking out the spring platform and placing the mattress directly on the floor.  Alas, those halcyon days of containment are at an end.  In the space of a week he has:  climbed out of his crib (in the dark, wearing footed pj's, our last available obstacles), used the crib to climb up onto his dresser, used the bottom drawer of the dresser to climb to the top (us having moved the crib after the earlier achievement), climbed over the gate between the living room and kitchen, and used one of the drawers in MY dresser to climb up and change our clock settings.  He also makes quick work of climbing into his baby brother's crib.  Needless to say, we're somewhat less than thrilled to have him roaming freely about the house at all hours of the day.  Luckily he seems content to go to bed when we put him there, so it's only in the mornings that we have to keep a sharp ear out for his escape.  Now if only there were more baby-proofing things in this house capable of stopping him...
