Conquering the playground, one slide at a time

One of the best things about being a full time mom is seeing the gross and fine motor skills slowly developing in this toddler day by day, week by week.

Last Friday, on probably one of the first break-out days of spring when the early spring showers dissipated and we experienced a truly gorgeous sunny, warm afternoon, we took Dylan to this playground.

Here he is, attempting to go down the slide by himself, unsuccessfully. You can see his thought processes vacillating between going down and staying safe! First, he wavers, and then he tries another slide, and then he tries going down pronated, and then he gives up. Brings a smile to my face every time I watch this!

Since then, he's shown much more progress, and can now confidently go down the slide - although he still prefers to do so feet first, face down.
