The Destroyer

Blanche is adorable. She is 15-month bundle of energy. She is NOTHING like BG was at her age.

When BG was 15 months, she was not yet walking, not even crawling. If she wanted to get around, she scooted on her bottom. It was so cute to watch. She was a pretty mellow child, obedient, and happy. We never did much baby-proofing because BG didn't really get into things. If she opened a cabinet, I would tell her No, and she would find something else to do. It was that simple.

Blanche on the other hand, is the complete opposite. She has been walking for months, loves to run and get into any trouble she can find. She loves to climb and open cabinets. In the last week alone she has learned how to climb on top of the kitchen table, open the dishwasher and climb in, and push a stool over to the door, climb up and try to open it. I can't leave that child alone for any length of time without her cleaning out the drawers and putting half the contents in her mouth. She finds all of this incredible amusing.

She is giving BG ideas. Shortly after the table climbing incident, I turned around to see BG standing on the table. What!? She has never done this. I can tell already that Blanche is going to be a bad influence on her sister. She is intensely curious and smart. That can be a dangerous combination. She is sure going to keep us on our toes. It's a good thing she's cute!
