Watch the boy climb off the couch!
Other than our couch, he has also mastered the technique of climbing off our bed, Uncle Henry’s bed, Uncle Henry’s couch… Well, you get the drift.
But the thing is, he can usually only get off. He has difficulty climbing up furniture that is too high up. (Like duh, if you can’t get your knee on the higher surface, you can’t really climb up, can you? :rolls: ) So he still has to gesture to us to carry him onto the couch, bed, etc.
