She's Learning to Stand!

I need to apologize for being so behind on my posts!  I hope to catch up this week, but I'm not promising anything.  There is a ton to share, so hopefully I will get to it soon.

Here is a quick post to share our excitement that Sweet Pea is starting to learn to stand on her own!  She has been standing with support for a long time now, but this past weekend when we were up at my parents cabin in our local mountains she decided that it was time to try to stand on her own. 

Below are a couple videos of her attempting.  You can tell that this is a skill that she has a lot more work to do in order to achieve, but she is very motivated and is loving the feeling of it as you can tell from her huge smile!  I'm thinking she may accomplish this faster than I think.  Just look at the change in the first two days of her working on it!

First day (Friday, Nov. 26):


Second Day (Saturday, Nov. 27):


Way to go Sweet Pea!  We are cheering for you to be standing by yourself some day soon!  We love you!!!!!
