Tackling Stairs

This post is from a couple of weeks ago - just now getting around to uploading the video...

It's been 5 months since my last video of Macie climbing stairs. Then, she was just going up. Now, we're working on coming back down...

You'll see that she hasn't chosen the safer and quicker flip-over-and-slide-down-on-your-belly method. Rather, she's chosen what I like to call the "plop" method. But she's flexible enough that she doesn't land on her bottom as hard as I would if it were me!

Also during this video, I was fortunate enough to catch two of Macie's signature actions these days. First, anytime she gets hurt, she says, "OW" and puts her hand to her forehead. You'll see it here on her way down the stairs. Also, when she doesn't have, but wants, her paci, she sticks her tongue out of the corner of her mouth. Look closely. You'll see it when she inadvertently knocks the paci out by hitting in on the spindle of the stairway railing.

So it turns out this is a 3-in-1 video! Lucky you...

Wow, she is fast! Now only if she gets Dale's bb shooting skills, she'll be quite a baller!
