We don’t have stairs at our house, but Grandma does, and we weren’t sure if we should be worried about C1 and the stairs or if he would be able to figure it out. Once or twice before we left for Grandma’s I would take C1 out in the hall to the stairs, and he could climb up so quick, but once we got to the top he didn’t know what to do. I showed him a few ways to go down, but he didn’t seem interested.
Once we got to Grandma’s we went over it again with him; feet first, or slide on your bum; just not head first. C1 picked it up really quick. He would approach the stairs and start to go down head first, but then took that opportunity to turn his body and get his legs going down to the second stair and go down feet first the rest of the way. He just hasn’t figured out how to get started going feet first. It still made us all a little nervous on that first stair, but once he got going I was confident in his ability. Now I don’t really worry about C1 and stairs.
Speaking of figuring things out quick. My Mom has a toy that kids love, but it takes them 5-10 time being shown how it works. She showed C1 once how it worked and he could make it go and sing from then on. Ah, just like his Daddy, such a smart boy.
