Week 63 – walking backwards 

I love watching Reindeer develop a new skill – partly because he gets so happy and partly because it reminds me how many skills we take for granted as adults.

Today, Reindeer has been perfecting walking backwards. He’s walked backwards before, but always accidentally, for example when losing or attempting to regain his balance. 

This morning he started walking backwards through the kitchen and suddenly laughed. I watched more closely and, sure enough, he was sreadily and deliberately reversing around the room whilst looking very proud of himself . 

During the day I’ve seen him do this quite a few times, so I’m certain he’s practicing/experimenting with this. It’s fun to watch and I’m curious about what might come next.
