My Boy's a F*#&in' Genius!

I got home. I got to watch Aiden play in the garden.

Afterwards we came inside for jnanacandra to demonstrate Aiden's ability to go down steps.

We have half staircases. In other-words, the stairs go halfway up to a landing and then turn 180 degree to go up the the next level.

So the going-up-gate now resides on the first step of the half leading to the top floor.

Aiden quickly climbed the steps...holding onto a toy He turned around and then came down them.

The first step was daunting. He came to the edge and looked like he was going to pitch right over. But then he plopped down at the edge and let his feet dangle until he could reach the next step. Then he stood up... plopped on the step he'd just landed on and repeated.

When he was two near the bottom he misjudged and pitched forward. I caught him in my lap. I gave him many hugs of congratulation.

Aiden seemed a bit put off my my affection. The manner could be best described as, "Come on dad, you're embarrassing me."

I put him down and he quickly climbed to the second step and came back down. This time with no problems.

And then I realized what he'd done.

It was as if he knew he'd blown the last two steps on the first trip and wanted to go back and do them right.

He could have climbed all the way back up. But he climbed to the point where he'd lost control, then came down and didn't show interest in immediately going back up.

This is a lot more cognative than I was expecting.

I think they are planning on homeschooling, so his education will be as tailored to his level of advancement as they can make it!

How very cool. And rewarding.

thats my favorite user icon of yours there

I kinda like that icon too

Do you have a larger version of it?

Just to warn you from model number 1970, also born on the day...get ready. Detail oriented from the word go and a inborn need to do it correctlly. Learning from all experience and wanting to do it by ourselves. My first full sentence I am told was "I'll do it myself, thank you."
Yep. He is right on track...he he he :)

You realllly need to come visit :)

Here's to being a Virgo!

At least I have several people as role models to ask for advice :)

That's awesome!
It's amazing how quickly babies grow and change and advance. incredible!

But he climbed to the point where he'd lost control, then came down and didn't show interest in immediately going back up.

You're going to see a lot of that. As he starts becoming more toddler and less baby, there's so much practice in those motor skills. It'll be way cool to watch as he develops.

Well, obviously he's testing himself...Planning his eventual escape. Psst, Aiden, I'll bring you a file in a bottle next time!

Your current music is ... um ... appropriate.
