If you saw Silas attempt the rocking horse when he first got it on Christmas Eve, you'd have observed the following: both parents holding on to a confused baby that assumed this was just another chew toy. Well, the rocking horse is still chewable by Silas' standards, but in just a month, he's figured out it's main purpose--ROCKING! (see video for proof) He only needs our help now to lift him on and off, and of course, we still need to stay right next to him, just in case. Still, he's getting better and better at it everyday. In fact, sometimes he rocks out so hard, we're afraid the whole horse will go flying backward (seems pretty sturdy so far, though). Rock on, Silas.
