About a week and a half ago after putting Naomi to bed I came into her room to find her standing up in her crib.

What was amazing about this:

  1. I had never seen her stand up from a lying down position so I don’t know how she managed this Cirque du Soleil-type feat
  2. The crib was still in the ‘high’ position so one little bobble-headed bob and she could have done a header and there would go the Mother of the Year award I wasn’t going to win anyway
  3. She was still ASLEEP. Her eyes were closed, her cry was an asleep cry… she was unconscious yet upright.

Girl manages to give me heart attacks when she REMing. We are in trouble.

The next day the crib was moved to the ‘low’ position.

I have a feeling this isn’t going to slow her down for long.

Happy Friday (that’s a link to a Friday in 2010… such a different Friday… but the same with coffee and rain and everything the way it’s supposed to be)!

Age: 9 1/2 months

    Perhaps you should put the application to the Cirque on hold till Naomi masters the Two Step! That is, one foot in front of the other, without able assistance of any nearby hands to grasp. It’s all progress. Anyway you look at it. How are the crawling lessons coming along? Life’s such an adventure, and none more exciting than watching it unfold in front of your eyes as your baby develops,. Enjoy Shauna. It’s such precious time. Much love Marilyn

    Upright by herself already? Good lord time flies. Love how she’s mastered the super cool one leg up look too. 🙂
