10.11.09--Sitting up!

On the 10th, we were at a friend's house when Sapphira started sitting half way up on her own (sitting on her rump but bent over at the waist with her hands near her feet propping her up)...we were so excited since this was the first time she had done this with out going face first into the carpet. The next day, we were showing Grandma her new trick when she decided to sit all the way up (no hands!!) all by herself!! She was able to do this for several minutes at a time...what a big girl!! Since then, she has been getting stronger and sitting for longer and longer. Right now, she sits for 15-20 minutes at a time before getting wobbly. She fusses now to sit cute. I have to admit though, it is so weird to see this little tiny girl sitting up on her own...Malachi was so much bigger when he started and it just seems like I have this 2 month old who is sitting on her own...strange! :) Malachi likes it, too...he sits along side her and puts toys in her lap and plays with her. He's such a good big brother!

She loves playing with this farm toy...can you tell? :)

She actually bangs the drum with the stick!

She also loves playing with Malachi's Mega Blocks. They fit perfectly in her hand and must taste wonderful since she can't keep them out of her mouth! hehehe
