If a tree falls in the forest...

Jack is on day-two of his nap-strike. (His teeth might be coming.) When Matt got home from work I was excited for a break from my very fussy son. Matt took Jack into the basement to play while I put my feet up and then I heard "Oh, OH! EMILY, COME HERE!!!" Thinking I'm going to see severed limbs strewn about as I run downstairs.

When I get down there, Matt explains that Jack took 2 steps from his activity table to him. So this begs the question, if a baby walks in the basement and his mommy isn't there to see it- did it really happen? I ask this because when we tried to get him to repeat his new 'trick' he would have none of it. I'm left to wonder if it was a real event or Matt's making it up. (It's possible!)

Please comment below and tell me: if a tree falls in a forest... does it make a noise?

That is so funny, a student asked me the same question yesterday and unfortunately the answer is yes it does make a sound, he'll do it again just wait!

I would not be surprised at all if it actually happened. He's SO close! Perhaps Jack knows that the event is eagerly awaited by mom and is just being stubborn.

It might be a double whammy...not napping because of teeth and because he's so excited about starting to walk! Hope things get better soon!
