Jeremy's been going down the stairs forwards by himself. I guess he's done this before, a few stairs at a time, but he's recently been making a concerted effort to go down the stairs himself, deliberately holding the bannister with his two little hands. He has the same twinkle in his eye that Harry had when he started going down the stairs himself, but his manner is more overt than Harry's. Jeremy often looks up as he places his hands to highlight his improving technique and perhaps to get a little reassurance. Harry always seemed to be doing it as if to show it was not really a big deal and that he'd always could do it. Jeremy's is the better way to learn. Harry's way is more like his father.
