Standing, Briefly

2005-09-12 One-minute read

This morning Alice stood on her own for the first time. It was only for a second or two, but she’s never done this before. Corinna and I were sitting in the living room watching Alice when she stood. We resisted the urge to shout encouragement, but we did tell her she was a very good girl. Then she plopped back down onto her bottom. Throughout the day she’s done it a few more times, once for as long as 5 seconds. Her confidence seems to be growing. What a wonderful day!
