Faster than the speed of light

Adrian has begun to defy the laws of gravity and physics in one go.

How can someone so tiny be so fast, especially when it comes to scaling furniture or creating steps out of boxes to reach forbidden items?

I've come to recognize the deadly silence: the quiet that indicates that he is up to something and that what he is up to is no good. How he manages to flip a box over, climb into the rocking chair and proceed to lean waaay over the edge in hope of reaching the curtains in the time it takes me to fold a blanket in thirds and drape over his crib rail is beyond me. How he manages to do it silently while he is 3 feet away is even more baffling.

Clearly, I am raising a the next generation's Superman.
