1, 2, 3...

After two years of carrying Joseph up and down the two flights of stairs to our apartment, I realized that at some point I have to let him practice so he can get up and down it himself in a timely manner. If anyone has practiced such a thing, you know that it takes for-e-ver to get a toddler up a flight of stairs, much less two. In order to hasten the activity, I thought maybe if I counted the steps it'd entice him to keep going.

Well, it sort of worked, and it turns out that he can count to 10! When did that happen? We've been reading lots of counting books, lately, but he generally doesn't say the numbers (besides maybe one, two, and three) so as we got up to 8 and 9 I was truly amazed!

It's fun to be surprised by him.
