Water play, Matias says "cane".   Matias wears his cane playing with a water toy. He is engaged. He understands when he is told his cane is stuck. He responds by proving he got his cane free and showing it off in the process. And proudly says the word all belt kids say, "cane".

Unique ascending stairs method.   Matias is walking without holding a hand to the Gymboree. His parents have found fun ways to encourage him to follow them. They clap their hands, call happily and use lots of patience. Matias did it himself. Once inside, he asks to go back outside.
