This baby boy kept climbing out of his crib when he was in his room alone. So dad put a camera on the nearby dresser in an attempt to see how the little escape artist was doing his thing. The video is pretty darn hilarious.

While it looks like he is completely home free, the baby somehow falls back into his crib. Talk about snatching defeat from the jaws of victory! On the other hand, the tyke is complete unfazed by the almost impossible failure of his first attempt, and does get out of his cage with his second try.

This combination of dexterity and sticktoitiveness is going to make him quite a handful when he gets a little older. Dad might be wise to keep that camera trained right on him.
