We've had an amazing week with our adorable 7 month old. Hannah has hit two big milestones and seems to be at a developmental sprint. She's been belly crawling and knee crawling for a couple of weeks. Then, about 5 or 6 days ago (have it written down but can't remember) Hannah decided it was time for her to sit up on her own. She did it the first time and has turned into a major pro at it since. Just 3 days later, she grabbed hold of her toy chest and pulled herself to a standing position! NOW, she's getting her little butt in the air and is trying to stand up without help! She's every bit strong enough, but doesn't yet have the balance.
We need to accelerate the babyproofing I think :)
It's amazing how they change when they start sitting up. The way Hannah plays is so much different. She's a lot better at entertaining herself now that she doesn't feel like she can't move on her own. Crazy.
