Something WONDERFUL to report!!

Emma is standing up!! With support, yes, but she has learned to get up from a prone position all the way to standing in her Pack-n-Play! By herself!!

Unfortunately, she has not yet allowed me to catch her on camera in the act. I did manage to get a short video of her a few days ago in the early stages of this when she still needed a little help to get all the way up. I shot her from the back so she didn't know the camera was there. Here it is....

Also, I caught her on camera standing up today, singing "This Little Light of Mine"....so incredibly cute!! Enjoy!

Wow, way to make me smile! Emma is absolutely adorable and I'm so happy to see that she is standing. What fabulous news!

JoAnn said...

Thanks Keri! Your Logan is such a cutie....I was so happy for you both when you posted those pictures of him pulling himself up to his knees but I never imagined that Emma was even close to doing anything similar!

I hope that you and your family are having a great Labor Day Weekend!
