As fun as belly sliding is, there’s nothing quite like doing things the way that Mommy and Daddy do. Ethan was coming down the stairs with me today, when he decided to walk down facing forward. Holding onto spindles on the left side, he made it down one step and then another. The banister he was using was for the upstairs hallway, though, not the stairway. After his two steps, he had run out of spindles. No problem—he now had a perfect excuse to turn around and belly slide the rest of the way.
