now that I think about it i think he did it before he walked, he would crawl up the stairs and then slide, although more often feet first on his belly like we taught him to get off the bed, but totally independantly.
Karen - spouse to dh for 11 years, mama to ds (Nov '02), dd (May '05) and ds and dd (Jun '08)
We don't take her to the playground very often and she did not have many opportunities to practice at a younger age.
13 months for sliding his feet through to go sitting up, feet first.
DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.
She walked at 10 months.
Wife to DH (06/10) and Mummy to DD (07/08).
That being said, when I got flack about it, I would reference recents reports that parents who go down the slide with their LO are much more likely to cause injuries like dislocations and breaks.
Mama to my 3 wild things.
