My little dirt lover has gotten really good at climbing this little dirt hill at my neighbor's house. He can go up and down it all day, with ease. He's getting very close to walking, I think. I can let go of his hands now, and he'll stand for several seconds before realizing he is doing something he thinks can't be done. I've ordered him a little push wagon from HABA, and I am anxious to see him try it out when it arrives. I think it'll give him the confidence he needs to start walking.
