Today, Reindeer got himself into a proper standing position for the very first time!
We were preparing for bathtime so he was in his cot while I ran the bath. As I walked back to his room he suddenly pulled himself to standing using the cot rail – and stayed up for a couple of minutes while his Dad and I looked on with excitement, smiling and applauding for all we were worth.
Reindeer was clearly very proud of himself, smiling or laughing the whole time, so I expect he will try it again before long.
At this rate he will be a toddler before we realise it 🙂
