Sunday I was hanging out with She Nut trying to get her to sit up by herself. She was too excited to sit still, every time she found herself sitting, she would straighten out her legs and arch her back and then down she would go. Yesterday was such a beautiful day, we all went outside to play when the kids were done with their homework. I laid a beach towel down and figured she would just roll around. When I sat her down, she actually stayed! And she managed to spend most of the time out there sitting up as well. She was on the slightest slope, where her legs where just a little bit down hill and her butt was planted on level ground. Just enough to give her balance and confidence to do it. Even after we came inside and she was sitting on level floor, she was a professional sitter. She went from no control one day, to mastering sitting the next. And here I was feeling all guilty that my 8 month old still couldn’t sit up, when she was just waiting until she felt like it.
And you have to check out her shirt…last summer it was a dress that came down to her knees. What do you think, does it work?
