We've been trying to overcome Josie's aversion to being upright for months and months and months. Recently, she started experimenting with standing up. We called it "surfing" because she would never rise above a squat and she would keep her arms extended for balance. Josie would only do it when she thought no one was looking and she would adamantly refuse to do it if you asked her to.
Just this past weekend at YaYa and Papa's house, basking in the cheers and encouragement of a room full of people, she actually attempted to stand up several times in a row! She was still extremely cautious, but she definitely showed signs of progress.
This morning, after a little coaxing from mom, she was on a roll! I got out the camera to film her latest gross motor milestone. Stay tuned until the end for a real treat:
You're never too young to poke fun at your little sister!
