she stands!!

EARLY this morning (as in the middle of the night) I woke up to a crying baby on the monitor. So I hopped out of bed and ran upstairs to my sweet little 6 month old STANDING in her crib, holding onto the railing. So I battled with her for the next hour and a half to go back to sleep, but every time I laid her down she was up and crawling towards to the rail and pulling up. Oh joy. I hate this stage. She is just so focused on going that she can't give her little body a rest like it needs. Anyway, just wanted to document the event. When she wakes up I'll see if I can snap a picture.

Update: Got a GREAT video, but for some reason my computer isn't happy so I can't get it on here. I will soon. Oh and we had another fabulous night of standing. How long does this last?

Oh my gosh, I am scared! Yesterday, I walked away to put the trash out for like 10 seconds and B had "crawled" really scooted to the automon (sp?) and was trying to pull up. Dear God, help us all :D

Well just know that when you are up in the middle of the night, I am more than likely up too, HA! These babies love the nightlife sometimes :)

I only remember that lasting a week or so, but I also remembering it happening at like 9 or 10 months!!! NOT 6!!! Tell that Emma to slow down becoming a big girl!!

Hang in there!

See Emma stand. See Emma walk. See Emma run. See Emma and Grace play chase, play hide-and-seek in the stores, zig-zag thru the playgrounds, and try to hug Auggie, the dog.
Go Emma!
Love you, Aunt Barb
