today, this kid
was able to jump for the first time, with both feet at a time!
we know this is a skill that most 1 or 2 year olds have already mastered. but either lack of strength in his legs, or coordination, caleb has been unable to do it. as small as it sounds to most parents, this was a milestone we have been waiting to see him conquer.
and tonight, during a jumping-on-his-bed-fest before his nightly prayer, ben and i saw him jump with both feet. we told him to do it again. then again. we clapped and cheered, even though caleb really didn't know what he had done that was so spectacular.
then i pulled him off of his bed to see if he could do it on firm ground. it wasn't as strong, but he still did it.
such a little thing, but it brought on some big smiles.
