Judah-a.k.a. in our house....The Master Trouble Maker

At two years old Judah is my master trouble maker. He literally scans the room looking for weaknesses in my defenses, he looks for anything out of the ordinary and checks to see if there is anything that has been left unlocked or unprotected.

We keep our bedroom door locked because we have a computer in there and the bathroom is off to the side. But if we forget to lock it up again once we have been in there he notices right away. He knows if the center of the lock is horizontal it is locked but if it is vertical it is open season.
If he gets into our room he either hops in my closet and runs back and forth through my clothes pulling them down as he goes. Or he climbs onto the counter and jumps into the sink. When I am in my room he likes to sneak out with my curling iron and run into the living room and plug it into the wall socket.

I have to rope his door shut to put him to bed and down for his nap because he knows how to unlock his door.
He climbs onto the counter and grabs the phone so that he can run away with it and push all the buttons.

He tries to climb the pantry shelves and he has climbed up Savannah's dollhouse and laid down on the top shelf.
He takes his diaper off 30 times a day. Whether there is something in it or not. I literally have high intensity radar for the sound of diaper velcro.
He loves to hang off the back of the couch so he is being held up by his arms.

He stands on the ottoman and jumps at you whether you are ready for him or not.

We have those panel blinds in front of our sliding glass door and he hooks them in his arm as he runs by them, every time.
If he finds a piece of crayon or a pencil or a pen he immediately runs over to my couch and swipes it down the side of it.

I used to have adorable decorations by his bed. I picked them up after he threw them all over his floor at least two dozen times and finally had to take them all down because he was started to scratch up the wall.

Judah also has a fondness for the oven burner buttons. He has ruined dinners before because he will go and flip the knob and change the temperature and sometimes he just turns if off and I come over to figure out that our food hasn't been cooking at all.
If he doesn't like what is on the t.v. he will go over to the side of it and change the channel. Even if we are in the middle of a show.
When he is done eating he still throws his food off of both sides of his tray.

If Savannah is playing peacefully by herself, it never fails that Judah will run over grab something she is playing with and runs away to make her chase him as he giggles like crazy. 

I definitely have my hands full with this one! ; ) But he is also so stinkin' cute! He is so quick to laugh! He is the most tickleish little boy ever. He loves giving me kisses and loves to help me clean up. He is so sweet and gives the best hugs in the whole world!
