Since getting home from Grammy and Grampy's Amos has learned how to open doors.  He has finally achieved the perfect combination of height and coordination to free himself.  Yesterday I put him down for his nap and then came downstairs to check my email.  It wasn't long before I heard a quiet movement in the hall.  I panicked for a second, until I realized it was Amos.  He snuck around the corner, and when we met eyes he looked like he thought he should be in trouble.

Fast forward to bedtime, and I found myself camped outside Amos' door waiting for him to try to sneak out.  Sure enough, after about one minute I saw the door crack open and a little head peeked around it.  I think the most incredible part of all of this is the sneaking.  He is a funny little sneaker, and frankly, he's pretty good at it.  He's so quiet, I never even heard the door open.

If I got a fortune cookie today, I am sure it would say this: "toddler proofing is in your immediate future."
