There was a time, a few short weeks ago, that I wondered if Owen would EVER learn to sit because he always. wanted. to. stand. He wasn’t happy unless his little legs were straight or bouncing. Put him in a sitting position and he’d immediately straighten his legs and flatten himself on his back. He’s incredibly strong and has always been a very “busy” baby, so it’s not like I was actually worried about his development; I just wondered when I’d ever be able to plop him down on the ground to play without worrying about laying him on a cold/hard floor.
Well, folks, that day is closer than I thought.
Over the last two weeks, like magic, Owen has been sitting. And not just sitting, but sitting and playing for long periods of time without toppling over or getting frustrated or flattening to his back. Picking up toys and bringing them to his mouth. Toys that used to be too heavy for him to lift, and now they don’t even throw him off balance. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly babies learn new skills.
Wanna see? Please excuse the quality of these videos (and the fact that there are three of them, and one not one, nicely edited version)… it’s not one of Benjamin’s usual masterpieces. It’s the Mommy Cam 🙂
