My Favorite Baby Skill

Forget pincher grip, first steps, waving bye-bye, saying mama.
My favorite milestone..
He finally learned to turn around and come down the stairs backwards.
Sigh of relief!
(Of course, he still sits precariously on the edge of the top step, or attempts numerous other tricks, now that he believes he is the master of all staircases.)


  1. Hi, I have been reading your blog for a month or so now. I enjoy it very much. I have three kids, one is baby that is 15 months old. This picture reminds me of the other day when my baby decided to stick her head through the railing posts that run across the open hallway upstairs. You know, it was almost like, "get the butter! the baby's head is stuck!" Thankfully, she pulled her head out on her own. But I was freaked for a minute.
    I can't wait for her to manuever the stairs by herself.
    Your kids are all very beautiful by the way.
