Stepping Down

Katie's been going up the stairs for some time now -- like since last August. Down, not so much, although she's quite capable of going down the two steps into the garage or the backyard. When I've tried to coax her into going down the stairs in the past, she has backed up against the wall opposite the staircase, giving a pretty clear "no" signal.

She did that again today. But then I took her hand, told her it would be ok, and I walked her down the stairs, holding one of her hands so she could balance. And she made it all the way down without falling.
