Stand in the place where you live...
Think about direction
wonder why you haven't before
Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around
Just a quickie post today - I'm really going to try and be better about putting up SOMETHING even if it isn't the world's most fascinating entry. Jay's latest trick is that he's learned to stand up in the middle of the room without help. Picture it: he'll stick his adorable little backside out, hands and feet on the floor, like a bear. Then he'll push his hands off the floor, and then stand up, wobbling all the way. All grownups watching get excited and clap, clap, clap! Then he gets excited and claps, but the clapping throws his precarious balance off, and he crashes down again. Hilarious! Even more adorable!
He must have done it 25 times last night, over and over. Then, after time #25, we remembered to pull out LaLa's new video camera, which happened to be at our house. By the time we bring the camera into the room, he's moved on to exploring his toys. Sigh. Even after all the begging and pleading and helping we could do, we never really got him to do it again for the camera. Performance anxiety, perhaps? It's okay, kiddo. Mom and Dad don't really like to be the center of attention, either.
