climbing stairs

...and so it begins...

last week, under close supervision, Micah made it up two stairs all by himself.
a few nights later, with Curtis right behind him, he climbed up the entire flight all by himself.
this made me both a proud momma and a terrified one.
see, i've fallen down this exact flight of stairs exactly twice - from top to bottom.
both times i laid on the ground at the bottom with thoughts of being a paraplegic flashing through my mind.
the first time i had little bruises up my spine for days
the second time i had a bruise the size of a watermelon (not even kidding) on the outside of my thigh for weeks.
so to say i'm not a little intimidated by a baby who can go up (but not down) stairs by himself would be a lie.
i have a feeling (because my mom told me) i'm going to be spending a lot of time on these stairs in the coming months, teaching him how to scale up and down safely.

two words for you. Baby Gates. They are the best invention ever. Not so awesome to look at, but beat the scary falls any day!
