Standing Tall

July 24, 2003 – 4:58 pm by Aaron

Liam started standing up last week. He’s been pulling up to things for a long time before he even started to crawl. What he did the other day was stand up while holding on to me (I was lying on my back in bed) and then suddenly he let go. He stood for about one second and then fell on his bottom. When I cheered and told him how good he did, I think I may have scared him a bit. He’s a trooper though and he got right back up.

Now what happens is that he will stand up and when he wobbles and falls we laugh and cheer and praise him and he thinks we’re laughing at the fall so he gets back up and immediately just throws himself down again and waits for us to cheer. So far I think the longest he has stayed up has been about 10 or 12 seconds.

He is also doing a lot of ‘cruising’ from furniture to other furniture or people or whatever is around that will support him. He’s having a great time and we’re really enjoying his curious nature and his boundless energy.

He’s going to start walking soon, and I think we’re going to be in trouble.

  2. Awwww. Liam sounds absolutely PRECIOUS! :) Start resting now, ’cause when he starts walking you’re gonna have a heck of a time keeping up! :)
