Our sweet Mia is progressing rapidly in her pursuit of forward movement of the vertical type. She likes to get to her feet. I wouldn't call it 'pulling up' as she doesn't really get a hold of anything, rather, she uses her strong legs to get to her feet and balances herself with her hands. A favorite target is the boys' playroom chairs, but the underside of the playroom table presents an obstacle; she has the same problem with the underside of the coffee table when climbing onto the shelf below. Today we offered her a small plastic stool that goes with their art easel, and she was successful in climbing to a standing position! And she was so delighted with herself. The next skill to master is getting back down, it seems. She is now trying to pull up on the chair I am sitting in. Her frustration abounds, loudly.
