What goes up must come down right, Newton?

That’s the tricky part.

Four boys making their way down the steps at their own pace while I nearly pass out from holding my breath so long.

But going UP the stairs – easy as pie!

    This made me laugh…. My daughter was a late walker b/c of some muscle tone issues and when she finally started walking up/down the steps, I would literally hold my breath the entire time she made her way down. Eventually, I started turning away and just giving her to the Lord. 🙂 Your boys are so cute.

    My daughter has given up crawling up the stairs and thinks she’s a big girl and just wants to walk up and down. Eeks! She fell once, but thankfully nothing too major other than a big bump and a bruise.

    How about some couch cushions at the bottom of the stairs? 😉

    Brad and Jen,
    At least your letting them go up and down the stair and not being too over protective. We do have to watch out for them but we also have to let them spread their wings and fly alittle too.lol Love ya, Leona

    oh what fun! So neat to watch them discover stuff like this. It’s the simple things. So, did you have a pile of pillows down at the bottom? lol. They must be so proud of themselves! They look so grown up. Gee, perhaps you’ve taught them to go up to bed already? Go girl! Love it.

    Too cute! I am always amazed at your ability to keep your blog updated. I have a 7 yr. old and a set of 14 mo. old twins and marvel at how you do.

    That is so cute, teach them to come down backwards on their tummies. Mine would scoot down one step at a time that way they wouldn’t fall. Good luck!
