Up and Down

July 3rd, 2009

Not content to simply crawl, Miss Mouse moved immediately on to pulling herself up on any and all available furniture. She started standing on June 18th…

…but only learned to sit back down today.

In between, there was a lot of “okay, now I’m standing but I don’t want to be any more and what the heck am I going to do now??” fussing. She’d pull up, chortle happily to herself for a while as we all admired this feat, but then start crying until someone came to help her sit back down.

Then finally yesterday she figured it out, sort of by accident. She was standing in her crib, lost her balance, and plopped down on her well-padded behind. Eureka! She spent the next ten minutes standing and plopping and standing and plopping.
