toddlers, with an S
Nate took his first step at eleven months, his second step at fourteen months, and he was taking many steps in a row right away. It seemed he spent those three months figuring it out mentally instead of experimenting physically.
Thus I was surprised this week. Ben's first birthday is just 2 weeks from today. He took his first step Tuesday and fell down onto his hands and knees. I helped him back up. He took his second step and fell down again. Then he cracked up laughing and crawled away.
The next day, we played the one step and fall down game for a long time. AND...he took two steps in a row before grabbing onto Nate's shirt, taking a third step, and falling down, laughing so hard he couldn't stand up again.
Quite fun. And exciting. I love milestones!
