An Eliana first: She climbed down from a bed.

Unlike her brother at that age, Eliana is quite aware of heights and navigates cautiously near edges. For example, she can tell that our bed is raised high, leading to a careful blend of curiosity and sense of peril (she seems unaware of the arms ready to reach out and catch her). Ethan’s bed is lower, however—low enough that with well-planned seating and a little scooching, she safely made the solo transition to the bounty of Ethan’s toys awaiting below.
