So her therapist arrives like normal, and works with her briefly on crawling. Then he declares that since she's doing so well with her crawling, it's time to start working on going up and down the stairs.
I am so not ready for this.
In normal Judith fashion, she decides to do the hardest thing first: going down the stairs backward. Going up (facing forward, obviously) is normally the easiest part, but go figure it's the one she had trouble with.
I was really hoping she'd be sitting on her own, unsupported, before we moved on to this skill.
Sounds like it's time to start using the baby gates regularly... for Judith instead of the dogs.
