Standing before she can crawl


Friday, 19 July 2013: One Hundred and Nine Days Old.

Ayla is almost standing but she can’t even sit up yet, let alone crawl!

Whenever she stands Ayla looks at me wide-eyed with surprised excitement on her face… As if she’s trying to squeal “Look Mum! I’m doing this! I’m actually doing this!”

Ayla also lifts her shoulders and sticks her arms out to try and get her balance, but secretly I think she might be trying fly like a superhero.

I googled “babies standing” and apparently it’s not uncommon for three month old babies to try it. But, I can’t quite work out if they do it to copy us, or if its some sort of development reflex.

Either way, its super cute and I like to think Ayla’s something special! 😉

NOTE: By the time we got the camera out for this photo she’d had enough and wanted to sit down (that’s why she looks like she’s in mid collapse)
