My motivation for this post is not to claim that I think we know everything there is to know about helping a child develop, physically, to his/her fullest potential but to 1) remind folks that parents know their children and chances are there's no need for you to worry about them and 2) children can not meet new goals without a challenge. Every time we let Ayden climb up on the dishwasher door or actually make contact with the ground when he looks too far up at that fan, he learns. The same goes for gagging and Baby-Led Weaning. He quickly learned how much was too much/how far was too far and after finding that limit 2 or 3 times, it never happened again.

Babies are very quick learners and if you give them a chance they will learn lessons and limitations very efficiently making them ready to tackle whatever comes next.
This kid will never be able to complain that there weren't enough pictures and videos taken of him as a baby, that's for sure! And now, for your viewing pleasure, here is a clip of Ayden's dance party this evening. He must have had a song stuck in his head because there was no music :).
We love this kid SO MUCH (if you couldn't already tell). So much love, challenge, and entertainment all wrapped up in a tiny wonder package named Ayden.
