As you can see by yesterday’s post, Gavin has mastered the stairs the “grown up” way.
As proud as I am, it’s also really nerve-wracking. When we moved into our current home, Gavin was good enough with the stairs (crawling style) that we never put up a baby gate…but now I’m starting to think we need one.
Casey and I both have mini panic attacks when we catch him attempting to go down by himself.
But, it does make going to the park a little easier. He can quickly climb/run to the top of the play equipment and get on the slide all by himself. Now I can easily bring him by myself, instead of needing a partner (one to help him to the top of the slide, one to catch him at the bottom).
So needless to say, we’ve spent a lot of time at the local parks the last couple of weeks…especially now that fall weather has started to kick in!
Our Favorite Park
the “big kids” side
Lovin’ those baby blue!
Call me crazy, but I am soooo ready for fall! I cannot wait for the crisp morning air, the changing leaves, and to pull out all of my warm, comfy sweaters and jeans!
And yes, I know that winter isn’t far behind…but we’re ready for that too! Time for sledding, skiing, Santa Claus, snowman building and more!
