Standing for Something

At ten months, Nathan has been learning to stand on his own.

At first, he didn’t trust himself on his feet.   As soon as he realized he was up alone, he’d immediately sit down — but it was a controlled sit.   So we would distract/bribe him with a treat or toy and he’d be up for a few more seconds.   (That’s why I called this post “Standing for Something”.)

But in the last couple of days, he’s gotten used to standing up.   He even laughs when he realizes that’s what’s going on, rather than bailing out.   I took a photo of his new trick yesterday, but it’s still on my camera and we don’t have the cord with us.   I’ll post it when we get home tomorrow.

Update: Here’s the promised photo.
