Unfortunately we didn’t quite start filming early enough. I hoped we would catch the bit at the top where Rufus turned around and reversed on to the slide. He does the same motion with stairs. Not yet proficiently enough for us to take off the stair gates as he demonstrated on his previous (head first) run down the slide.

Leap of faith

We went to Fremington pirate ship as a little treat after some very patient shopping for Holly’s clothes. Miles had been doing this jump (which is above his head height) with no one catching him but after he stubbed his toe, we managed to convince him that it was better with a catcher.
He will leap in to my arms like that regardless of what else I’m doing, usually with a cup of tea in one hand and Rufus in the other.
It’s great that he is trusting as only children can be but sometimes a bit alarming.
