Zayha-Baya’s Blog
 
 
Zayha’s been going up the stairs like a champ, and when he’d sit on his hands and knees at the top of the steps and stare down, you could tell he wanted to go down too, but not head first!  
 
So, I showed him how to turn around feet first, slide his feet down the stairs, land on his knees, and reach down with his feet.  Turning around feet-first was the biggest part, but he got the point pretty quickly.  And, he even extrapolated the concept so that he gets off the couch and bed feet first too!
 
Now his favorite game is to go up and down, up and down, up and down the stairs.  Even better is when you say, ‘I’m coming to get you!” and chase him, tickling.  He ZOOMS his way up, laughing hysterically.
 
If you chase him, he goes faster!
